This steamy erotic short story will leave you breathless.
Olivia tries to steal the Vestal armband from Marcus, more than once. The first time she’s caught, he offers her a choice – prison or his bed. She chooses his bed. What Olivia didn’t count on was that Marcus would just give the armband to her – by fastening it on her arm. She takes off, with the armband still on, before he wakes up. Olivia panics because the legend of the armband is that it forms a bond of true love between a man and a woman, if she wears it while they make love, which they did. No matter what she does, she can’t get the armband off of herself, and therefore fence it. She tries to get her cousin to take it off her; he can pick any lock, except this one. The other part of the legend is that once locked around the woman’s arm, only the man who placed it there can take it off. Marcus never believed the legend, even when he popped the clasp open with no problem.
Pick this one up for a fascinating read.
When London art collector Marcus Montcrieff meets the mysterious Olivia at an auction where he buys a seemingly magic golden armband said to have belonged to one of the Vestal Virgins, he realizes quickly that taking her to bed comes at a high price.
