Mona Lisa St. James made a deathbed promise that she would do anything to save her mother's art gallery, The Red. Just as she realizes she has no choice but to sell it, a handsome stranger makes her an offer: He will save The Red if she submits to him for the period of one year. Surely her mother didn't mean for Mona to sell herself. Then again, she did promise to do anything to save The Red…
Mona heard the door opening.
She lifted her head. Malcolm stood in the doorway in his three-piece suit.
“Ahh...” he breathed. “My Olympia.”
Mona didn’t know what to say, so she said nothing. Malcolm didn’t seem to mind her silence. He came to the bed and sat beside her. She sat propped up on her pillow and frozen on the sheets, shivering.
“You look so lovely,” he said softly, his gaze grazing her naked body from face to feet and up again. “I’ll enjoy you tonight.”
“I’m nervous,” she said.
“Of course you are. I wouldn’t want or expect anything else.”
“You want me to be nervous?”
“Very much. It will make the triumph all the sweeter. I love the challenge of overcoming reluctance.” He bent and kissed her chest over her racing heart. Then he stood and walked to the end of the bed where he proceeded to undress. First the suit jacket came off, then the vest. He unfastened his buttons with agile fingers. He didn’t make a production of undressing, and yet she couldn’t take her eyes off him as he peeled out of his shirt to reveal strong sculpted biceps, a flat hard stomach, and a broad chest. The shoes were next and then the trousers. Her eyes widened at the first glimpse of his cock, already erect and glistening at the tip. She watched it as he walked back to her, taking in its impressive size and even more impressive girth. She would need to be very wet to enjoy that inside of her.
“You’re pleased with me?” he asked and she sensed the question wasn’t a question at all. A statement of fact. He knew she was. He simply wanted her to admit it.
“I am. Although...”
“I’ll take care of everything,” he said. “I haven’t lost a woman to it yet.”
She laughed and it helped ease her fears. He sat on the bed again at her side. He touched the side of her face, caressed her cheekbone, pushed her bangs to the side and kissed her forehead.
“I’m so pleased you’ve agreed to this,” he said. “Very pleased. It’s been a long time.”
“For me too.”
“Then we’ll both enjoy this.”
“Although it’s for you, isn’t it?” she asked.
“What do you mean?”
“I mean, you’re paying for me. You can do what you want. It doesn’t matter if I enjoy it or not.”
“I do hope you’ll enjoy it,” he said. “But it’s not a requirement. In general, however, your pleasure gives me pleasure. Not everything I do will be physically pleasurable for you, however. For me, yes, but not for you. That was the nature of our agreement, yes?”
“Yes,” she said, nodding.
“There’s still time to change your mind. I don’t force women. It would be beneath even such a man as myself.”
She shook her head. “I want to do it.”
“Even if you don’t enjoy the sex—and you will—you’ll certainly enjoy the money.”
