I’m very excited that D.L. has taken time out of her busy schedule to pop over a really sexy excerpt from her wonderful new anthology, Seductress, Erotic Tales of Immortal Desire. Thanks you, D.L.!
So, K D and I were going to have this really great discussion about sex and the paranormal, or as she put it, “things that go bump in the night” but due to circumstances beyond my control, I was unable to get it done. Instead, I wanted to give you an excerpt from one of the stories in Seductress that treads that line really well.
This is from “The Girl on the Egyptian Escalator” by N J Streitberger. After having been well and truly fucked (involving, among other things, a full bottle of champagne and oral sex…) Spencer decides to find out a little more about his new girlfriend.
The following morning having called in sick, he looked up the number of the British Museum and dialed. Three tablets of Berocca fizzed noisily in a glass on his faux granite kitchen counter.
“Hello. Can you put me through to the Egyptology Department?”
“Certainly, sir. Hold for one moment, please.”
Three seconds passed.
“Oh, yes. Hello. I am trying to trace one of your consultants. I am doing some research and someone gave me her name as a possibly useful contact.”
“I see. What is the name?”
“I’m sorry, I don’t know.”
“Is this some sort of joke?”
“Oh no, not at all. But I assume there can’t be many people with that name working there.”
“I can assure you, sir, that there is no one of that name working here or associated with the Museum. Not alive, at any rate.”
Spencer’s scalp tingled.
“What do you mean?”
“Sekhmet is the name of an Ancient Egyptian deity. There are several extant images of her in existence. It is highly unlikely that anyone would name their daughter after her.”
“Why would that be?”
“Because she is considered the most formidable and destructive of the Egyptian gods. She is usually depicted with the head of a lion. In the Ancient Egyptian world her name is synonymous with overwhelming female power and bloodshed. She is also known as The Mistress of Dread or The Lady of Slaughter.”
“Oh, er, I…”
“Now, if you’ve quite finished wasting my time, I have better things to do. Goodbye, sir.”
The line went dead. Spencer put the receiver back very, very gently.
Poor Spencer. But that’s what the mix of things that go bump in the night and sex is all about. So, crank up the adrenalin and dip into Seductress.
