Title: Resort Virgins – Awakened Desires 1

Author: Laura M. Baird

Genre: Erotic Romance

Book Blurb:

After twenty-five years of marriage, Violet and Max agree their vanilla sex life needs a little spice. Spending their anniversary at a tropical fantasy resort just might open the door to a new love life. But awakening those desires and engaging in pleasure with another couple produces different results for each. Will their bond snap or bring them closer than ever before?


“What do you think about spending our anniversary at a resort?” Max suggested as he and Violet finished their lunch.

“A fantasy resort?”

Their twenty-fifth anniversary was approaching in a few months, and he thought it would be exciting to feed their new-found sexual appetites at a resort. One that specialized in sexual fantasies, including swinging; bringing other partners into the mix.

He had thought to suggest they check out some nearby clubs, but decided maybe something at that level might be best experienced away from home. Not to say he thought what they would engage in would be anything but normal, it’d definitely be taking it beyond what either had ever considered. As first timers, perhaps keeping this experiment to strangers would be the safest way to go.

“A fantasy resort? Really?” Violet wiped down the counter. “Already bored with what we’ve been doing?”

“Hell, no. Just thinking of elevating to another level. Maybe, adding other partners.”

He’d briefly mentioned swinging before, but when Violet showed no interest, he let it drop. Until now. Violet was enough for him, and he believed he was enough for her. But the thought of others just watching their pleasure kinda turned him on.

“Maybe we still have more to learn. More pleasure to unlock.”

“And you think another couple can do that for us?”

Max shrugged. “Maybe.”

“Lots of maybes, Max,” she said hesitantly.

“Here, let me show you this.” He’d been researching resorts and found one in particular that appealed. The promotional material claimed privacy and discretion, while suggesting they could fulfill even the wildest sexual fantasies. For those interested in engaging with other couples, the answers you provided in the questionnaire, helped determined what would be arranged.

Max showed Violet the information about the tropical resort.

“I even went so far as to check out the secure chat forum on their blog site. True, everything online should be taken with an open mind. There’s certainly a possibility people are lying. But after I spent the week participating in chats regularly, I really have a good feeling about this place.”

“I don’t know, Max. After glancing at this and listening to you rave about the place, the thought of spending our 1 anniversary in a tropical paradise definitely appeals.” Violet still looked at him with apprehension. “Engaging in more adventurous sex doesn’t sound too bad either.” She chuckled. “But, but having sex with others? With strangers?”

“See, that’s what can be appealing as well. Another couple, unknown to us, with the same desires. There are no expectations other than pleasure. And if we decide it just isn’t what we want, then we back out. No hard feelings. No strings.”

Violet gave him a wary look, and he knew not to push too hard with the swinging issue. He’d let the idea swirl in her mind.

“Okay, so we don’t have to invite anyone else into our fantasies, but I think we should still go. Think of what a wonderful anniversary we’ll have. We can get away from the cold and the rain, and spend eight glorious days in paradise.”

“I do love that idea.” She looked up at him, excitement building in her eyes. “Okay. Let’s go. We’ll see how everything unfolds once—”

Max wrapped Violet in his arms, cutting off her words with a scorching kiss. She melted into him, and he took the kiss deeper as he grabbed her rear and hoisted her up into his arms. She laughed against his mouth as he set her on the counter she just finished cleaning.

“Max, I—”

“Shh,” he whispered against her lips. “Right here, right now, Vi.”

What’s your favorite way to combat stress?

Exercising or reading – it’s one extreme or the other for me. I’m either tearing it up on the treadmill ;) then pushing weights, or relaxing in my rocker reading a book.

Why is your featured book a stress busting read?

My book takes the reader far from their ordinary life to an imagined fantasy resort where (nearly) anything goes. It pushes the boundary of what a couple is willing to explore to add more passion to their love life.
