IN THE BLIND Excerpt:
The door continued to open every few minutes. Finally, the woman in front of Jane was taken away. She could see nothing past the door besides black. Until the door closed, she continued gazing into the darkness. How would the loss of sight change the experience? Would she feel more? What would he feel like? Nerves shook through her limbs, and sweat tickled her palms.
The door opened, and she stood straight as a statue. This was crazy. She searched for pockets in her robe. When she found none, she swallowed back a curse.
The escort stopped in front of her. “Are you having second thoughts?” He shifted the goggles higher on his forehead.
“Would you like to step back and wait to go or …” He stepped back and cracked the door open. “Sometimes it helps to hear the sounds of the other participants.”
She closed her eyes and took in the moans and let her mind drift to what her body would feel like to make her make those kinds of sounds.
“I don’t want to pressure you. Tell me what you want.”
“Thank you.” She opened her eyes and took a step towards him. The only way was forward. “I’m ready.”
“Good for you.” He reached out and took hold of her hand. “Come on, I’ll take you to the lucky one, for tonight.” He winked and tugged her forward.
Once the door closed behind them, Jane was surrounded by unending black. She looked around, but there was nothing, no end to the darkness. A nervous shiver danced along her spine, followed by thoughts of haunted houses. What would she find around the next corner? Her escort tugged her forward, bringing her back to the night’s purpose.
She needed to remember why she was here. She needed to live in the moment. There was a good chance she was about to touch the man who would give her release.
They slowed, turned a corner, and after a couple more steps they stopped. She swallowed the lump in her throat when her escort placed her hand into another’s.
“Enjoy.” He squeezed her shoulder, and she sensed his presence leave the space.
A pull on her hand forced her feet forward a couple of steps. She stopped just as abruptly when she bumped into a hard chest—the man of the hour. This man would touch her soon, but he wasn’t yet. He was only holding her hand. Her breasts moved with her uneven breathing, and her nipples scraped against his chest.
Why wasn’t he touching her? Was he nervous, too, or having second thoughts? She reached up in curiosity to make sure he wasn’t wearing a pair of night-vision goggles, but only found soft hair. She followed the section of hair to above his shoulder and continued onto smooth skin and around his shoulder to his bicep thick with muscle. Her heart thumped, and her breath quickened as moisture covered her needy pussy.
She breathed deeply, taking in his delicious musky scent. Her hand wandered to his chest and found more of the same, firm skin rounding over firm muscles. A warm hand landed over hers and held her hand tight to his chest. A nose tickled her ear.
“Do you like?”
“Yes,” she admitted.
“I’d like to explore you now, okay?”
She pushed out the breath she held and worked to breathe normally. His hand landed softly on her cheek, fingertips caressed her chin, and then up to her temple. The gentle touches raised a long sleeping yearning within her, and she leaned into his touch.
His thumb swept across her bottom lip. Curiosity wore away her reserve, and she let her tongue reach out and taste his fingers. One digit pushed into her mouth, and she sucked lightly, enjoying his clean taste.
The finger left her mouth, a second of waiting, and then his mouth crushed down on hers. His lips were firm and demanding, feeding her hunger. He ran his fingers through her hair, and then his warm wet tongue swept through her mouth. Back and forth, deep, then gentle, their tongues dueled. She explored more of him as her need to know him intimately soared.
His touch lingered around her shoulders and down her sides. When he found her ass, he kneaded the globes. The kiss ended as abruptly as it started, leaving her wanting.
She heard nothing but the driving rhythm of the music, each track feeding right into another. The current song enchanted her, and her hips swayed. No one could see her, so there was no reason for self-conscious thoughts. The brilliance of the club hit her with full force. It didn’t matter who she was or who he was. Tonight, they celebrated life and the pleasures they could bring their bodies. Everyone deserved pleasure. Even her.

I think it would be scary at first, but then very liberating to be in the dark. This is SUCH a neat concept for a novel.
I do believe Jane had the same reaction. On the way to the room she actually thinks about haunted houses. *shivers* 🙂 I’m really looking forward to writing the next couple of books in this series. There’s definitely more aspects to explore. Thank you, Cara!! 🙂
I have to say, honestly, I’m kind of afraid of the dark.
I would be scared sh*tless, which might hinder my ability to enjoy the moment.
I don’t know. I’ve never done anything like that before.
I know! I am not a fan of scary things at all. I’m always the first to scream, lol. So, it’s no wonder I quickly distracted my heroine when her thoughts started to go there. Thank you, Katherine! 🙂
Hi, Angelica! *waves like crazy* Thank you. 🙂
Congrats on the release of In the Blind, S.J.! Going to check out the tour now.
Thank you so much, Reese. 🙂
Yay!! It is finally release day!! Congrats!!
Jane and Rob are fabulous! So, pat yourself on your back for a job well done! ❤
Thank you, Liz! 😀 I can’t tell you how much it means to me that you’ve read it already. ((tight squeeze))
I think it would be very exciting this experience. I love to play with the idea of blindfold. This seems like a hot book! Looking forward to reading it! Thanks for the giveaway!
You’re very welcome and thank you! I hope you get a chance to read it and love it. 🙂
Happy release day, SJ. It’s quite an interesting concept, playing in the dark. Wishing you all the best with this one.
Thank you, Kiru. Playing in the dark. I like that. 🙂
Happy release Day, SJ 🙂 This sounds like a must read! Fabulous tease 🙂
Aw! Thank you, Doris. 😀
S.J.! I purposefully stopped reading the tease at “I’d like to explore you now.” because I want to read the whole thing! It was that good girlfriend! Off to buy it now and huge congratulations. I can feel your excitement. 🙂 xoxo
Wahoo!!! 😀 I am so excited. This book makes me want to write more and more and more.
Happy release day, SJ. Best of luck with this. Interesting premise. Great tease.
Thank you very much, Susanne! 🙂
Could be interesting. All your other senses heightened.

I quite like the sensory deprivation thing. There was a restaurant Dans Le Noir in London where the dining room is in complete darkness. I would love to go there. And you know, sex and food have a lot in common…
Yes, they do. 🙂 I’ve never been to one of those restaurants, but I definitely thought about them while I was writing this story. Thanks for partying with me, Etta.
Happy Release Festival! 🙂 Best of luck.
Thank you so much, Sheri. 🙂
I’m scared of the dark…..still have to sleep with a nightlight lol I actually travel with a nightlight whenever I spend the night somewhere! I would be too jumpy/nervous/anxious to enjoy the experience.
I can be too, especially if I’m outside. Yikes. I’m definitely not a horror writer though. So, this story doesn’t try to scare, quite the contrary.
I think it would be scary, exciting and exhilarating! Congratulations SJ!
Thank you, Linda! 🙂
I think it would be scary but liberating, exciting, thrilling, and totally erotic! Definitely on my TBR List!!!
Sweet! Thank you. 😀
i think it would be really scary. first off you would not be able to see, then you would know that there were other people in the room and not know where they were or what they might do,sounds like a real dangerous situation to place yourself in.
that being said it also makes for a great read and i look forward to reading the book. 🙂
Thankfully, Club Blind is a safe, sane, and consensual club. Jane knew a lot of what to expect which helped her to enjoy the experience. If you do get a chance to read it, I hope you get that feeling as well. Thanks for you comment. 🙂
It would be intimidating & intriguing. Thanks.
True that! You’re welcome, Jana. 🙂
