The Naked Groom
Tiffany Stonebridge is in love with aspiring chef, Richard Grainger. She rocks his world every chance she gets which leads him to max out his plastic on a ring that would light up the night sky. Richard promises her a honeymoon in Tahiti if only to impress Mr. Stonebridge.
With no way to pay for any of this, Richard secretly takes a second job as a nude artist's model. Tiffany and her rich family can never find out or things could get very ugly.
His life gets more complicated when he meets Clarise Simpson, another artist’s model…a naked one. Their friendship goes from zero to bed in a blink. Richard battles his feelings for both women.
Richard’s friend leaves a big old hound dog with and splits. When he misses a couple of Stonebridge family gatherings, her father thinks Richard might be babysitting someone else besides a dog.
The same voice that awakened me at the hot springs answered, “Come in Richard.”
As I stepped inside the austere office outfitted with sleek furniture framed by floor to ceiling windows, a barefooted Sophia floated toward me wearing an aqua kaftan embroidered with gold. She took my hand and led me inside her chic office to a chaise in the corner. She sat across from me on an overstuffed divan next to a huge frosted glass window. Her business appeared to be legitimate. I hoped she wasn't looking for a lover - what am I thinking? What if she is? I should be flattered that I could get $450 for my services.
"Would you care for some herbal tea, Richard?"
I shook my head, "Not now, thank you."
Sophia sat down next to me, "I'll get right to the point, I'd like you to model for my figure drawing class... nude."
I sat quietly, this wasn't one of the fantasies on my mental list.
She stirred her tea with a silver spoon, "I didn't think you'd have a problem with it since you seemed comfortable in your all-togethers at Gaviota."
"I'm flattered, but I have to tell you, I'm seeing someone right now."
She smiled graciously.
"In fact," I blurted, "I'm getting engaged and I don't know if it would be proper for me to do this."
About the author:
I’ve been writing for over twelve years. During that time, I took novel writing classes and joined writer’s groups, but what has helped me most are published authors who mentor, encourage, critique and listen to me while I continue to learn my craft. I live in Southern California with my wife and are currently working on a crime novel together. Finding time to write while life happens is a challenge.
