One to Save
By Tia Louise
© TLM Productions LLC, 2015


In the cool darkness of the semi-crowded bar, I study the glass in front of me and consider my journey, how many steps I’ve taken in the last two years, how far I’ve come. Memories of my old life fade like smoke in a glass. The shame that held me so tightly now dances at the edges of my mind like the whisper of a bad dream, a flicker of shadows that no longer make sense in my world.
Young women in shiny slip-dresses twist and laugh on the dance floor, but instead of resentment, my lips curl into a smile. My old self—cynical, bitter, defeated—is a memory I have to work hard to recall. These days I could dance all night with them, but I’d rather spend my energy on other things.
The slim glass holds a pale amber liquid, and I can’t resist taking a sip. An involuntary wince pinches my eyes as I put it down. Seven and seven. Refreshing citrus dragged down by the heavy undertone of whiskey. So gross.
Sliding my palms over my thighs, I realize my outfit isn’t much different from the girls’ on the dance floor. The deep red silk is fitted at my waist, and drapes loosely over my torso. My long, dark hair is swept over one shoulder revealing a thin spaghetti strap. I lightly touch the delicate gold chain around my neck leading to the floating heart pendant that sits between my collarbones, and light glances off the thick gold cuff on my wrist.
Unlike that night almost two years ago, I’m alone. My best friend Elaine is miles away with her new husband, most likely indulging in that blissful honeymoon period of early marriage. Make that, most certainly indulging. I know those two well.
No, I came by myself to this bar in Princeton after finishing my business with a client in town. My infant son is in Wilmington, spending the weekend with his grandmother. Studying my hands, I admire the deep blue sapphire ring on my finger, but I have no wedding band.
At thirty-two, I’m an unmarried mother of a beautiful little boy, and I wouldn’t change a thing… Yet. The tiny silver scar at my hairline reminds me of what a bad marriage looks like, and with my successful marketing business and the gorgeous cottage at the beach I own, I’m satisfied with my life. Calm, not desperate. I’ll take my next steps deliberately, with certainty.
All these thoughts preoccupy my mind when I blink up and catch him watching me from across the square-shaped bar. Blue eyes, strikingly blue because of the way they stand out beneath his dark brow, coupled with collar-length thick dark hair.
He’s massive, at least six-two, and elegantly dressed with a thick stainless watch on his wrist. I can spot his type a mile away—rich, powerful, accustomed to getting what he wants. I can’t deny the hum his gaze sets off under my skin. I know what he wants.
Catching my lip in my teeth to stop my grin, I know what I want, too, and it’s no coincidence I happened to look up at that exact moment to meet his stare. Still, I’ll make him work for it.
He starts to move, his eyes never leaving mine. I don’t look away either. Thick cords of muscle ripple beneath the thin default sweater he wears as he glides past the oblivious patrons talking and laughing. Some are more animated than others, waving their arms and putting their drinks in peril.
Yellow lights hidden in the recesses above the bar illuminate rows of liquor bottles in all colors and shapes. Glasses hanging upside down above also catch the flickering light. It’s a raucous atmosphere, but this man and I are in our own secret place of longing and desire.
As he rounds the final corner, and I see him in full, my breath quickens. My eyes drift from his broad shoulders to his narrow waist, grey slacks and default shoes, then back up just as he reaches me. A close beard shadows his face, and the muscles low in my pelvis tighten at the thought of how it feels brushing the soft skin of my inner thighs.

What’s on your menu for lunch today? A wicked tryst perhaps? Christopher Dark doesn’t mind being the hottest ticket on the alternative rock circuit, but the fans are driving him nuts. Continually signing glossies and having photo after photo taken of him in his garish attire is growing old. There has to be a better way of giving back to the community while pushing his career into the stratosphere. Sales are low and his livelihood is on the chopping block. Suddenly a rather creative thought comes to him after a provocative conversation and a competition is born. Now if only he can coerce his manager into agreeing. Renowned Chef Dusty Weathers isn’t the kind of man to follow any rock star, but there is something about one particular heavy metal band that speaks to his deep and very dark needs. The lead singer is every man’s fantasy. Still, he’s sworn off relationships after a horrific betrayal, one leaving him questioning more than just love. When a very interesting contest is announced over the airwaves, he’s intrigued by the idea. Encouraged by his overzealous staff, he researches every aspect about the intriguing man and designs a rather sinful banquet for the star. Is this a dirty little lunch in the making or something else entirely?

Shila Miller is always hungry, for her sexy boss that is. There’s something about Devon Thompson’s long, dark hair and steel blue eyes that simply drives her into madness. Sadly, touching isn’t allowed on the menu at Thompson, Tyler and Poole – the poshest advertising firm in all of Atlanta. Then again, how could he love a frumpy girl like herself? But oh she can fantasize... Tasked with developing a sizzling catering event for a select few clients, she designs not only what she believes is the perfect menu, but one that will also entice her divorcee boss. If only he notices her. Devon is a ladies man and while he knows it, he’s tired of sitting on the hot seat. The woman he craves doesn’t seem to notice his directness. Or care. Shila is all woman and the most accomplished assistant he’s ever worked with. He simply has to have her and the one chance he might have will involve a dirty little lunch in the making. In truth, he has to question his rather sinful motives and whether she’ll consider becoming more than just his employee. After all, he wants to own more than just her heart. He requires her complete submission.

What’s on your menu for lunch today? A wicked tryst perhaps? Birthday boy Montana Devereau should be celebrating turning thirty. Instead, he’s buried behind a mountain of work, planning on skipping lunch in order to get home early. Unfortunately, there’ll be no one waiting for his arrival. When fellow employee and all around bad boy, Brad Swimmer, asks Montana to lunch with the guys, he’s intrigued. After all, he’s had a crush on the golden haired God for years, but the rough-hewn hunk has never given him the time of day. Saying yes, Montana settles his thoughts on a simple burger and a beer. Too bad the guys have kinkier thoughts in mind. When they take him to an unassuming brownstone smack in the middle of town, Montana surmises something’s up. With a name like Burgers & Bondage, their lunch suddenly becomes more of an adventure. In truth, submitting to a man is Montana’s darkest fantasy. Is this a dirty little lunch in the making?

What’s on your menu for lunch today? A wicked tryst perhaps? Natasha Spencer hungers for her boss, RT Brace, but the hunk doesn’t know she exists. Then again few at his advertising firm have ever learned anything about the mysterious and very wealthy man. During one luncheon adventure with a friend, she’s coerced into picking out a few naughty pieces at Victoria’s Secret - lingerie designed for seduction. A brazen hussy she isn’t, but a dazzling corset and matching thong is just what she needs to fuel her fantasies. After their adventure, they enjoy a late lunch and prepare to return to work. When Natasha pulls out her credit card to pay the bill, she’s shocked – it’s not only declined but also reported stolen. To her horror, the restaurant manager calls the police. As she’s led away in handcuffs and directly to a waiting limousine she realizes she’d been duped. When the man of her dreams opens the door, offering a tasty way of paying off her debt, there’s no way she can refuse. Eyeing the chocolate-laced restaurant manager as a passenger, Natasha shivers. A dirty little lunch is in the making.

What’s on your menu for lunch today? Randi Reynolds is in the mood for something hot and sweet for lunch. Her craving is in the form of one scintillating man she’s been pining over. Months of ordering delivery, where Tomas Garcia works, only garners Randi a casual hello. It’s time to kick up the heat. On a sultry afternoon, Randi enlists the help of her best friend and together she and Tanya allow Tomas to see just how close they truly are. Intrigued, when she orders take out the next day, he arrives a different man--ready for an adventure. A dirty little lunchtime ménage is the perfect addition to the menu.
