From WIP An Unusual Vacation
Contemporary erotic romance with a twist of suspense
Waterlilies Claude Monet 1916, from http://www.wikiart.org/en/claude-monet/water-lilies-40
An hour later, Dominic left the Monet exhibition, and wandered along to the top room of the art gallery. He saw the young woman the moment he reached the top of the stairs. She sat part way down the left hand side on one of the blue benches. Dominic couldn’t tear his gaze away as he edged closer to where she sat.
She wore a pale-pink, suit jacket and her glossy chestnut hair fell down her back almost to her waist. Her lightly tanned legs were bare and she wore bright pink, high-heeled pumps. Dominic couldn’t see a skirt. Intrigued, he stopped at the painting adjacent to the one she sat in front of, and cast a secret glance at her. Shorts, mmm, she’s beautiful.
He passed behind the bench trying to ascertain if she wore a wedding ring. Luck gave him a perfect opportunity as she moved her hair from her face, giving him a delightful view of a naked wedding band finger and her lovely profile. Dominic’s heart raced. Surprise at his reaction to the young woman gripped him and he walked rapidly across the width of the gallery to stand before an ocean scene and try to collect his swirling thoughts.
