The Marriage Ultimatum #18

♥ Camilla was still furious at the discourteous manner Dominic had treated her yesterday—twice for that matter! She let out a low hiss as she clinked down the hallway of the executive offices of La Quinta. She’d gotten her usual alert that he was going to be at Chã das Caldeiras and had immediately gotten into her car and made the drive down so she could be there with him. But had he appreciated her efforts? No. He’d acted as he always did since he got back—nonchalant and insulting. Rebuffing her affectionate moves like he hadn’t once welcomed and even sought after them. Damn that pretentious innocent-faced gold-digger! It was her fault. She had come between her and Dominic. If her mother hadn’t taught her never to take the fight for a man’s attention to the extreme, Camilla felt certain she wouldn’t have been able to stop herself from…

The Marriage Ultimatum #17

♥ Kaine woke up the next morning with a head that was pounding, a memory that was blurry and a conscience that was pricking. What was she thinking getting drunk in a party for Christ’s sake? She let out a low moan and pressed a hand to her throbbing head. She managed to lift her head and glanced around. Dominic was nowhere in sight. He probably had left the house. It was Sunday. Mia usually went for Mass and Dominic, if he liked. Still struggling with the language, she still hasn’t chosen a place of worship. And now she was a shameless drunkard wife, she feared God might have no use for her that morning. Kaine sighed and pushed back the covers. Darn it, she was still even in the dress she’d worn to the party! The thought both shamed and worried her. Last time—no, first time—she’d been tipsy,…

Dear High Mistress #7

Episodes 1 – 6 of Dear High Mistress It felt weird when he woke to find a beautiful face that was not Christie’s. For a second he forgot where he was, but when soft, wet lips touched his cheek, he was reminded of everything. The consumed bottles of champagne, blithe banter, intemperate laughter, brazen covetousness, hungry kisses, fiery touches, loud moans, primal movements on soft, cottony sheets in a room glowing dimly with scented candles…it all came to him in a rush. The guilt was there too, hanging over him like a heavy cloud. But that seemed like it was all it could do. It had been there from the moment Comfort left her position and took his lips and he did nothing to stop her. “You can stay in all day.” The wet lips left his cheek and caressed his ear as warm fingers traveled down his tummy. “I…

The Marriage Ultimatum #16

♥ Kaine was watching a movie on an English channel when Dominic came in. The moment he stepped through the door and entered into the room, her entire body warmed and tingled at the knowledge of his presence and her heartbeat quickened. This was her curse now since she’d realised she was in love with him. If she wasn’t having the light burn way underneath her navel, she was having ticklish feelings as her body hungered for a single touch from him. The most disturbing fact was that much as she hungered for his touch and kisses, she dared not allow him touch her as that would be tantamount to blurting out the truth that she was never Tobi’s lover and therefore not Baby Tobi’s mother. She wanted to be free of the burden of that lie but she felt confused on how best to approach him—or even Mia—with…

The Marriage Ultimatum #15

Read previous episodes of The Marriage Ultimatum ♥ Dominic stared with a dissatisfied expression at the advert images. But it wasn’t the diverse models showcasing the different beautiful sceneries of La Quinta that brought on the dark scowl. He wasn’t even seeing them—not anymore. His thoughts lingered on Kaine and her leaving even when he’d wanted her to stay. She had looked beautiful—gorgeous. The red spandex dress had framed her slim physique like a second skin, flattering her subtle curves. He had chosen the dress, he remembered now, against all of her usual protestations. But then he had had to choose all of clothing as they shopped that day since she’d been torn between her sulky-tantrum and her apparent bewildered state. He’d chosen the dress but he hadn’t known it would make her that delectable. Gosh, she’d looked stunning—alluringly so. Her makeup had even been a touch different. Maybe…

The Marriage Ultimatum #14

♥ She didn’t tell him about Camilla’s visit when he got back home yesterday and she’d forbidden Catia to say a word about the visit either to Mia or Dominic. Of course, the talkative housekeeper had only reluctantly agreed. She wasn’t sure why she was reluctant to let him know his ex—or maybe still present girlfriend—had come to the house to warn her off him. Maybe it was her pride not wanting him to know anything he did with other women affected her. And it shouldn’t anyway. They had a marriage of convenience and not a love relationship. Kaine frowned and shifted on the armchair. Juliet had had a different view though. Kaine, a woman must fight for her man and her marriage. You are now his wife. Don’t just stand aloof, defend your marriage. That was what she’d counselled. It was a counsel that highly tempted given her…

Dear High Mistress #5

And because I still owe you one more episode… Catch up on Dear High Mistress He loved to stay in hotels. He owned exquisite homes scattered around Lagos, all good enough for his taste, but he preferred the luxury of hotel suites for some unknown reason. This strange behavior birthed one of the popular rumors about him, as it was whispered that he belonged to a secret cult and had been warned not to live in any of his houses or he would die. But none of that was true. Imade Harrison sometimes spent nights at home with his wife. They had a cold marriage but were both reasonable enough to engage in the infrequent marital intercourse, usually initiated by Imade himself, who sometimes got aroused while watching his wife’s TV show. He didn’t consider himself a sexual being. His pursuit of wealth gave him more orgasms than any vagina…

The Marriage Ultimatum #13

♥ “The boss’ wife sure looks beautiful.” Kanayo said as he twirled his glass of wine. The words added insult to the wrath she’d been feeling since Dominic so carelessly treated her, but Camilla curbed her temper as she curled her lips in dismissive disdain. “If you like the straight-line no-curve type.” Kanayo let out a chuckle. “She doesn’t have your curves, true. But she was certainly no straight-line type. And she was definitely no push-over.” Camilla didn’t respond immediately. Her eyes only narrowed as she thought of that woman. She’d been myopic in dismissing her after seeing her that very first time. It had been a judgment she’d realised was hasty when they’d met yesterday at the bar and she’d shown herself to be no soft-touch. She hadn’t considered her threat enough to be considered a rival, but after the way she’d confidently held herself and even dared…
