                 My Snippet:

Until that one day in London when I missed my train.

It was raining, it was always raining. Huge drops of water pelted me from a dark grey sky and I ran for cover along with everyone else on the street outside the station. There was a café by a bus terminal and I headed for it, taking my seat at a somewhat grubby table still littered with the previous occupant’s soiled crockery. I had an hour to kill before my next train and I wasn’t about to wander around outside in this downpour. I contemplated going up to the counter and ordering coffee but there was a bit of a queue and I didn’t want to give up my seat. I thought I would just wait until everyone was seated then go up. Not that I really wanted coffee, it was dawdling over the last one that made  me miss my train in the first place.

Six sizzling stories in an anthology of lust from the pen of Gemma Parkes:

·        A notebook carelessly left behind reveals secret liaisons of a most intimate nature.

·        An insatiable woman bites off far more than she can chew when four is certainly not a crowd.

·        Sometimes life is just too darn hot but could cooling down heat things up further?

·        Fevered kisses lead to daring thrills for one hungry couple.

Also, what happens when erotic fantasies occupy too much of your time? Lay back and lose yourself in the sensual mind of one of England’s most imaginative storytellers. Adults only.




  1. This could turn out to be a vicious cycle. The lure of coffee is strong . . .

  2. Outstanding description, and your writing flows so smoothly, Gemma. It makes me wonder how hard you have to work at it--it seems like it flows effortlessly! Great 8! :-)

    1. Thank you Teresa that's very sweet of you :) i just write from the heart, first person is easier for me - struggle more with third!
