Hot in Handcuffs!



Handcuffs, a little slap and tickle...oh, and a hot hunk. Yeah, those are some of my favorite things. And because this is the Hot in Handcuffs Blog Hop, I'm bringing along one of my favorite stories. There aren't handcuffs in it, but there is a nice bit of BDSM for your enjoyment. The Phantom of the Opera. I stuck to the text Leroux wrote, but yes indeed, it gets hot. I thought I'd share a bit with you. Keep reading because at the end is a chance for you to snag a story from my backlist. Now, on to the book!

The Classics Exposed…

A chance sighting at the Opera, fated love, and three lives in turmoil.

One man pledges to own her, while another wants her heart. The Opera sets the stage for romance and intrigue. In the catacombs below the building lives a man rife with sorrow and passion. The Phantom. But he’s not content to live alone. He wants to possess the one woman who can set him free.

His Christine.

Viscount Raoul de Chagny doesn’t believe the rumours of a Ghost living below the Opera. He only has eyes for Christine, his childhood friend and first love. Together they embark on a sensual journey of discovery and fiery desire.

But she can only have one man. Will love raise her up or tear their world apart?

Available here!


Read the snippet and answer the question!

“I’m not educated in the way to love a man.” Her chest heaved with each breath. “Will you teach me? I want to be yours, if for only a short time. I want you to show me how much you love me. Teach me?”

“Yes, my love.” He held out his hand to her. Christine twisted her fingers with his and eased onto his lap. Her eyes widened.

“What are you asking of me?”

“Your submission. Allow me to direct you as if I were the composer of one of your songs. Do you trust me?” Raoul smoothed a lock of her hair between his fingers. She smelt of flowers, a most intoxicating scent. Although she trembled in his arms, she met him for a kiss. Christine whimpered. Damn the blanket and the layers of fabric between them. He longed to feel her body next to his. He parted her robe and shoved the garment from her shoulders, leaving her in her nightgown. He swiped his tongue along her bottom lip and palmed her breast.

“Raoul,” she gasped, but didn’t swat him away. “I trust you.”

“Let me make you feel the magic.”

Christine stared at him a moment. “What do you want me to do?”

“Give me what I want. Can you do that?” He unbuttoned the top button on her nightgown. “Show me the depths of your soul.”

“I can.” She whipped her nightgown up over her head, exposing her body to him. Her rosy nipples peaked and the flush spread across her entire chest.

Raoul shrugged out of his nightshirt and tugged her back onto his lap. Skin to skin, mouth to mouth, he lost himself in her sweetness. His desire to conquer her took over. Christine slid her hands up his chest and twined them behind his head.

“Do you still wish to learn? This will not be what you expect.”

“I do.”

And now for that question!

What does Raoul want to direct her as?

Hi Wendi, I believe he wanted to conduct her as though he were the composer of her song. I hope that's right, I get nervous trying to answer questions, lol. The book sounds great!

It appears from the some of wording
He wants her submission to show her how she can love him (or her) like a song of passion and love ...
(or I could be reading too much into...)

Love Phantom of the Opera play, so this sounds like a good book to pick..
Thanks for sharing ...
