Would YOU Do Something Naughty?

Have you ever wanted to cut loose and do something completely out of character, just once? Have you wondered what it would be like to live out a fantasy? We work, raise our children, and live our lives as responsible citizens. Yet temptation lures us when we least expect it. We wonder how much we’re willing to risk for the sake of adventure. Do we ignore the call or give-in?

These are the questions that plague story heroine Emily Hopkins in my paranormal erotic romance novella TEMPTED. How she handles the answers are at the heart of the story Simply Romance Reviews calls “Grade A, Outstanding Read!”

TEMPTED by Adele Dubois


Is sexual fantasy cheating? If so, Emily’s got a problem. Though she’s never been unfaithful to her husband in reality, she’s found a new hobby with 3D Mental Image Projection. In the privacy of her home, she indulges her secret desires on interactive TV. What else is a lonely woman of a certain age to do?

When Emily wins a weekend getaway to mystical Isle de Paradises, she swears she won’t stray. But temptation lures her at every turn. Desirable men want her and beautiful women pursue her. When Paradises’ youth-restoring powers crumble her resistance, Emily is faced with an irrevocable choice. Her decision will forever alter her life and the fate of her marriage.


“The champagne is invigorating, no?”

“It’s wonderful. Smooth as satin.” The champagne tasted ice cold on her tongue. Her nostrils flared as she swallowed. Goosebumps formed along the length of her arms. Her breasts began to ache.

“Specialty of the House. From your hosts at The Traveler Channel. It’s called Olympus Elixir.”

“Nectar of the gods. I get it.” Emily smiled. She raised her glass. “Is this liquid science or magic?” She was only half-kidding. The elixir clearly had restorative properties. She hadn’t felt this good in years.

The host smiled down at her. “Science and magic are often seen as one in the same, no?”

Emily nodded. “So true.”

Two glasses of anything was usually her limit, but she could make an exception for this. A surge of energy roared through her bloodstream. The pulse on her neck quickened. The host glanced down at her again through half-open lids. The tip of his tongue touched the center of his delectable bottom lip and disappeared.

Emily swallowed more elixir and tried to keep her own tongue from hanging out like a hound dog. What was she doing flirting with this… baby? She was a married woman with a fine man at home.

I’m only looking, a voice whispered inside her head. No harm done.

Her conscience apparently needed a swift kick in the ass.

She took another taste of champagne. Her nipples positively throbbed. The vee between her legs pulsed in steady rhythms. Her hormones must be running rampant again.

Emily sighed. Why fight it? Why not have teensy bits of fun? She’d worked all her life, raised her children and been a loyal wife for a quarter century. What was the harm of just… looking? Men did that and more every day without a second thought.

She turned to the window where the view was safe and drained the last of her drink. The clouds were bone white against the powder blue sky. There was nothing for her to do except relax and enjoy the scenery. No laundry. No food shopping. No errands to run. Just this delightful, indulgent flight and whatever awaited on Isle de Paradises.

I guess you could say I've always wondered what it would be like to be able to live out a fantasy. I've never found myself in that position, but I think it would be pretty cool to have a moment of throwing caution to the wind.

Thanks for sharing Adele and I wish you lots of success with your career!

BTW, love that Jimmy Thomas cover. *wink*

Does streaking count as "naughty"? Or one-night stands back in the day? If so, then I could tell you some stories that would curl your hair! (grin)
