Maggie’s eyes were itchy and tired from spending too many hours surfing the web. She’d spent nearly all day searching for that “perfect” Christmas gift for Ian. It had to be something extra special. Something he wouldn’t buy for himself, yet something he would like from the second he saw it. She loved him so much she could hardly breathe at times when she thought about him. How had she lived so long without him? She thanked Madame Eve every night in her prayers for finding her the only man who could ever fit her fantasies, her secret wishes, her needs.
Her fantasies…his desires. She knew exactly what to get him. Her fingers flew across the keyboard, finding the Toys of Your Dreams website again. There it was, listed under Sex Toys, under Bondage and Fetish, a gift to satisfy Ian’s desires. One that she would have fun with, too. A heart-shaped, pink faux fur paddle. Even now her heart raced, heat curled low in her body. Yes, yes, yes! Perfect.
Ian paced his office, frowning out the window at the clear signs of winter taking over the Highlands. Snow dusted everything in sight and was still falling. Not only was winter upon them already but also Christmas was speeding toward them…toward him. He couldn’t think, couldn’t concentrate on the book he was writing. His thoughts were consumed with what to get the woman who owned his heart. It had to be unique, just as she was. It had to be something she wouldn’t normally buy and yet something she would like. What? He was running out of time to order anything and have it delivered before the holiday.
He settled into his chair again, sighed heavily. Then he caught sight of the photo he’d printed off from the email with the first picture of Maggie that Madame Eve had sent him. Maggie was dressed as a sexy cupid with fluffy white halo and wings, wearing a pink mini-dress with a corseted top. White thigh highs with pink bows stretched over her gorgeous legs. Pink stilettos completed the outfit. She hated that photo of her as a scantily clad cupid. He would never get rid of it. He thought about the numerous times she’d worn the costume for him, always reluctant at first. But giving in to his wishes always ended well for her. Maybe he could talk her into wearing it tonight.
That’s it! He’d get her a gift they would both end up enjoying. Another costume to light his fires, so that he would in turn light hers. And he knew exactly what he wanted, something similar to the cupid/angel, yet naughtier. Naughty was always good.
He located the Hot Dreams website and went to the Costumes tab. Black Swan. His body tightened just looking at the black corset with black feather cup detail, its rhinestone studded front and black tutu-style skirt. And he couldn’t ignore the black feather wings. He didn’t see the model wearing the costume; he saw Maggie in it. Christmas couldn’t come soon enough now. He’d convince her to put the costume on immediately…and then he’d remove it, piece by piece. He hit Buy Now. The trick would be waiting until Christmas to give it to her. With Maggie, he didn’t seem to have much inner strength. But he’d found it, the perfect gift…to go along with the couple dozen other gifts he’d already bought and stashed away.
