Today’s book chat slot is filled with a sneak preview! Isobel Starling is chatting about her upcoming release Sweet Thing and she’s brought a rather saucy excerpt for us all to whet our appetites. So very not safe for work! 🙂
I would like to introduce readers to my character, Simeon Duchamp through a saucy excerpt. Sim was in novella “New York’s in Love,” and “Fall Together” but I always wanted to tell his story. This new book “Sweet Thing” is his M/M love story and can be read as a standalone.
“Sweet Thing” finds the French male model in Rehab after a drink and drug binge that nearly ended in his suicide.
Excerpt from Sweet Thing by Isobel Starling
After three months as a patient at the Phoenix Rehab Clinic, the mask Simeon Duchamp had worn of hedonistic, outrageous model dissolved with the drugs and alcohol that were purged from his system. His camp, party boy façade hid a quieter, more introspective, sensitive young man—a man who felt everything too keenly, loved too deeply and could not cope with the pain of loss and rejection.
Sober for the first time since his late teens, Simeon was as fragile as a fledgling, bewildered by the colors, scents, and sounds of the big wide world. He was unsure just who returned his stare in the bathroom mirror. Who was Simeon Duchamp without his mask—without the crutches of alcohol and drugs to give him the confidence to get through each day?
A gentle knock on his bedroom door startled Simeon from his introspection. He looked away from the window toward the door to see his favorite young male nurse, Karl poke his head in.
“Your last session with Dr. Schroeder is in twenty minutes”, he informed. ”One for the road?” Karl’s brows waggled provocatively. Simeon’s lips slid to a salacious smile.
“Lock the door.” he directed, swiftly moving to the bed. Karl stepped into the room and, as instructed, he locked the door. Simeon began by removing his t-shirt and then unbuttoning and sliding out of his jeans. Karl kicked his soft soled shoes off, and the thin nurse’s uniform of white trousers and tunic shirt were discarded in seconds. Simeon stood, his eyes appraising the slender, boyish form of the twenty-eight-year-old. Karl had offered a pleasing aside from the trauma of therapy. He was Simeon’s type- blonde, blue eyed, eager to please, and deliciously well-hung. Karl approached and pulled Simeon into a deep, messy kiss.
At six foot, Simeon was taller than Karl’s five-foot-six, but what Karl lacked in height, he certainly made up for with his cock. Simeon longed to devour all ten inches one last time before he left the clinic. He ran his fingers through short-cropped blonde hair, his hard-on brushing urgently against Karl’s. He then dragged the naked nurse to lie prone on the hospital bed. Karl chuckled throatily. Simeon clambered onto the bed, and long, willowy legs straddled his conquest so they were in the sixty-nine position. The head of his own erection was directed at Karl’s willing mouth. Sim took the young man’s long, stout cock in hand and stroked, marvelling at why Mother Nature had seen fit to bestow a monster cock on such a slight man. He directed the engorged plump head between his parted lips. Much as Simeon would have loved to make a meal out of it, there was no time to play. Simeon hummed with satisfaction, taking Karl down into his throat, the dick filling him to near gagging point. Sim drew off, relaxed his muscles, and went back for more, working Karl between his lips like a porn star. His self-esteem may have been at rock bottom, but with a dick in his mouth at least there was one thing Simeon was sure he was still good at!
Karl offered preparatory licks and kisses to Simeon’s shaft before opening his warm, pliant mouth and swallowing him down. The two young men writhed on the hospital bed, hands kneading and caressing desperately.
Simeon was enjoying the suction Karl’s mouth offered; his eyes rolled back in his head with the pleasure of being sucked and sucking in syncopation.
Simeon paused and used some of the saliva dribbling from his mouth to moisten his fingers. Slowly, Sim eased a wet finger into Karl’s asshole and hooked up seeking his prostate. The young man bucked and moaned, thrusting into Simeon’s mouth, while nearly gagging on Simeon’s cock. When he had regained his faculties, Karl mirrored Sim’s action, giving Simeon the same intimate attention.
Simeon groaned against the invasion by Karl’s slender finger. They both pressed in, and their bodies fell into an undulating rhythm. Fingers massaged deep inside, drawing mutual fevered moans of pleasure. Simeon almost forgot he was still officially a patient in a Rehab Clinic until minutes later, when he and Karl spilled in warm bitter pulses down each other’s throats.
After a moment to catch their breaths, and final sensual kisses of thanks, both men dressed hurriedly. Karl could not be absent for too long as he’d told the head nurse he was on a bathroom break. He made to leave the room, pausing only to blow a kiss to the good-looking man with long dark hair now sitting on the disheveled bed licking the last of Karl’s spill from his lips.
Ten minutes later Karl returned. “Dr. Schroeder is ready for you now Mr. Duchamp.” He announced formally,
“Thank you, Karl; I’ll be out in a minute,” Simeon replied, his soft camp French timbre sounding breathless. Karl nodded.
“And thank you for all of your… assistance during my stay Karl”, Sim added with a devilish flash of his eyes and sultry grin.
“I wish you all the best with your continued recovery, Mr. Duchamp.” Karl quirked a knowing smile and blew a kiss before closing the door.
