Dropping the Veils

Dropping the Veils by Cris Anson

Robbed of her self-esteem during a loveless marriage, recently divorced Lyssa Markham allows her best friend to drag her, costumed as Salome, to a masquerade. She’s shocked then intrigued to discover the participants are members of an exclusive club. Hiding behind her mask, she permits her long-submerged sensual side to re-emerge as sights and sounds bombard her. Seeing a dark sexy gladiator inspires her to dance for him, seductively removing one veil at a time until she falls into his hot embrace.

Days later, she learns her ex has neglected to fulfill an urgent financial stipulation in the divorce decree. Unable to reach him, she storms into his lawyer’s office to resolve the problem and comes face to face with her gladiator. His first words, “Lift up your skirt…Salome.”
