An evocative story about lovers at a sensual crossroads (with supernatural overtones in a minor key).

After a vacation in Baja, Mark and Sarah decide to experiment with a little innocent (“tie me up”) sensual play, and Mark, wanting their initiation to have the perfect beginning, brings Sarah a custom-made gift, wrapped in an unusual vintage box. It’s not long before the two realize that they risk crossing a dangerous boundary of trust and desire as hidden, tantalizing secrets and appetites are exposed.

Runtime approx 50 minutes. Includes ebook version in epub format.

Inlcludes audiobook +  epub  to read and listen on your device of choice.

He held out a silver gift box dressed with an antique, ornamental white silk ribbon and slid it across the wood coffee table toward her. The box seemed to merge eras. At first, it held the glint of the kind of old-fashioned box you might see in old movies, in that scene when a man gives a woman an orchid corsage and begins to sing. A secret box stuffed with love letters, or a stolen cache of jewelry that might accidentally fall from the dusty top shelf in a shop full of curios.

Sarah slipped the silky ribbon off, pulling it over the entire box without untying it. On the lid was a faint, scratchy pattern in faded black blotchy ink. A delicate shape. The jeweler that gave it to Mark could have been pulling a sly act of tongue-in-cheek whimsy when he said he had the “perfect gift box for ya, on me,” but in truth he was finally ridding his heavy heart from the decades of unbearable gloomy love affairs the box hid for him.
