Review Tour: The Arts of Love by Harley Easton


The Arts of Love: Stories of Sensual Creativity
by Harley Easton




GENRE: Romance/Erotic Short Story collection






You know what they say about those creative types...


Playful, rebellious, sensitive and passionate, nobody loves like an artist. These sixteen stories set the stage for racy encounters with bad boy rock stars, sensual actors, and artists seeking their muse. Inside this collection you'll find:


* A drummer aching to satisfy the one woman who doesn't recognize that he's a rock star
* A writer unaware that his fans and former assistant find him undeniably attractive
* An eccentric college professor enticing her protégé with informal lessons on dance, drawing, and desire
* A stage manager struggling to remain professional with the show's sexy director


Whether you're looking for a playwright provoking her friend's uptight cop neighbor to help with blocking, two choir men battling for the affection of the girl-next-door, or a struggling writer finding an unusual muse in the Japanese countryside, this collection will have you ready for romance.






From Mistaken Identity


Gina stepped out of the elevator and leaned against the opposite wall with her arms wrapped behind her. One leg bent upwards as she gave him a coy smile. It was obvious Gina had no idea how to go about this, and her naiveté amused him. Justin’s lip twitched upward.


He strode forward, pressing his body to hers, caging her with his arms. When his lips pressed to hers, she responded hungrily, meeting his intensity. She tasted simple, of rosehip tea and cherry lip gloss, so unlike the alcohol-laced kisses of groupies. He drank her in, feeling a pleasant buzz. No cocktail could make his head swim this way.


They made out in the hallway like two teens on prom night until the elevator dinged, letting them know they wouldn’t be alone for long. Hastily, they shuffled away from the wall and ran to Justin’s room at the end of the hall. He put the key card into the slot and pulled Gina inside.


As the door clicked shut behind them, he glanced at his companion. She was glowing from the encounter in the hall, her face flushed, her eyes glittering. Within a moment, the nerves she'd displayed in the bar began creeping back. She bit her lip as she gazed around the suite, looking at anything but him.


“So,” she cleared her throat.


Rather than answer, Justin reached forward, caressing the side of her face with the back of his hand. She leaned into to his touch, so he swept his other hand around her waist, pulling her tight to his body as he leaned in for another possessive kiss.
