PREVIEW: Ambassador's Ecstasy-an IR romantica story

I stepped out from my luxury apartment in Morningside Heights, my primary residence, with a suitcase in tow. My chauffer arrived in a black limo about to take me to JFK airport. Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Georgina M. Appleton and I’m an US ambassador with the United Nations. I enjoy what I do; I travel the world, address serious global issues, interact with world leaders, and attend many fundraisers and social events.

I love to help make the world a better place for all people. While I enjoy my many humanitarian works, I am also a figure in the New York City social scene. I would be seen at many social parties, cultural events, and galas. My favorite cities are Paris, London, Rome, Milan, Miami, and of course New York City. I live in Morningside Heights, but I also have a place on East 54th Street where I can be closer to the United Nations. Aside from all that, my married life is another story. My husband Quentin of 7 years, a journalism professor at Columbia University, had been wheelchair-bound because of an auto accident a few years. Sometimes, I feel like more like a caretaker than a wife when it comes to him. We had a good sex life before the accident, but now it’s just nonexistent. Quentin had been working very late hours at Columbia. Even though we were both busy, we tried to make time for our relationship. On our last anniversary, we had went to Vermont and stayed at a cozy bed-and-breakfast. Other than problems in the marriage, I had to deal with my family as well. My older sister Jordana, a fitness instructor, had been living with me because she had just escaped a very bad marriage to a former professional football player, who had been abusive and depressed because his career had ended because of injury. I love and adore my sister and all, but she can drive me crazy.

I had just been invited to attend a fancy diplomats’ ball in Washington D.C. and I got my invitation a month ago; I had booked a flight two weeks in advance. Several minutes later, I arrived at JFK airport with my suitcase and carry-all. I went to the Delta Air Lines terminal with my ticket and boarding pass. I got onto the plane and went into the Business Elite section. Once everybody on the plane got into their seats and the flight attendants went over the instructions, the plane was ready for takeoff. I got comfortable on the flat bed seat as I waited on my lunch and drink. I even enjoyed some music courtesy of the noise-cancelling headphones while on my flight. After an hour and 25 minutes, I had arrived in the nation’s capital. I got into my rental car, a silver luxury SUV, and drove over to the Hay-Adams Hotel in Lafayette Square.

Once I checked in, I went into my superior room with a queen bed on the third floor. My room was luxurious and very well-decorated. I then went out to downtown and did some shopping. I had already got my fancy designer gown and shoes for the ball, I just needed a sexy dress and heels for afterwards. Since it was the day before the ball, I decided to go the Red Door Spa for some pampering, so I can look my best for the ball.

While at the spa, I talked to Jordana on my cell phone. She was telling about her day and what she did. After being pampered and relaxed, I went back to my hotel room at Hay-Adams. I talked to Joanna some more on my hotel room phone before having lunch over at Cuban Libre. Being an ambassador and all, traveling the world has its benefits, such as trying new foods, speaking several languages, and interacting with various cultures. My favorite cuisines are Cuban, Mexican, French, Italian, Spanish, Brazilian, Caribbean, and Mediterranean, but I do love my American food.

The next morning which the ball’s hours away, I woke up early to work out with some jogging and yoga before breakfast. I had some delicious breakfast at the Lafayette Room after my workout; then afterwards I took a shower and called Le Salon at Tysons Corner Center for a hair appointment. I usually look more different when I travel on my humanitarian trips with my hair in a ponytail and plain, comfortable clothes. But when it comes to social and cultural events, I want to look my very best.

Three hours later, with my black shoulder-length hair in a relaxed updo, I went into my hotel room, slipped on my black lingerie and stockings, and put on my gorgeous evening gown. My gown was a teal, strapless, floor-length number with a corset lace-up closure, a full skirt, and a crystal-encrusted bust. Once my gown was on, I then put on my teal, closed toe satin high heels. I spritzed on some perfume on my neck, put on my diamond-and-pearl cluster necklace and diamond earrings, put on some make-up, gathered my teal clutch among my other things, and was already out the door before 7 PM; the ball was at 8 PM. I had called a limousine service and a black stretch limo picked me up from the hotel on my way to the fancy ball.

The ball was at the Washington Convention Center in Downtown D.C. As soon as I got there, the limo driver opened the door for me as I stepped out of the limo, invitation and clutch in hand. Secret Service was on full alert at the convention center to keep terrorists and party crashers away. I showed them my ID and invitation at the front door and they let me in. As soon as I entered the conference center, the host announced my name.

“Now entering Ambassador Georgina Appleton.” The host announced.

There were plenty of diplomats, DC elite, power players, and socialites in attendance. Buffet tables and refreshment stations were at both sides of the center, classical and jazz music ensembles were on the stage entertaining the crowd with music, and tables in a U-shaped formation. I was greeted by fellow diplomats and social scene makers alike, all with my composure intact. I even got compliments from most of the society ladies about my gown and all. I even talked to a few fellow diplomats about many things going on in the world. After talking for a good 45 minutes or so, I was a little parched. So I went to one of the refreshment stations and got myself a glass of sparkling white wine. Then, I went and got myself a few appetizers so I won’t drink on an empty stomach. I sat myself down at a table, took my time nibbling on my snacks, and sipped on some of my sparkling white wine.

Then, I heard a male voice in a British accent speak to me. He said, “Excuse me, Miss. Would you like to dance?”

I looked at him and said, “Yes, I would.”

He was tall and white with dark blonde hair and blue eyes. He looked very handsome in his black and white tuxedo.

“Allow me to introduce myself. My name’s Michael St. Christopher.” He introduced himself as he kissed my hand.

“Pleased to meet you, Mr. St. Christopher. My name’s Georgina Appleton.” I said to him as we started dancing to the classical music.

We talked as we danced to the music along with the others on the dance floor. “So tell me, Miss Appleton, what do you do?”

I replied, “I’m an ambassador with the United Nations and I live in New York City. How about you?”

“I’m a barrister from London, I specialize in human rights.” He said to me.

“Fascinating. In my work as an ambassador, I support and work with various causes such as human rights, the environment, global poverty, and worldwide healthcare to name a few.” I said back to him.

“You look very lovely tonight, Miss Appleton.” He said as he smiled at me.

“Thanks, but please call me Georgina. You look handsome yourself, Michael.” I replied.

Michael and I had talked and danced for several minutes. We then sat down at a table so we could talk sitting down. We had talked about a lot of things such as our work, hobbies, home lives, etc. Michael was a good speaker and even better listener. As we talked, I suddenly felt a spark between us, a spark which had died out with my husband for the last couple of months. I loved how Michael had been complimenting me, which was very nice. A few minutes later, we were about to leave.

“As much as I enjoy a lovely ball, I’m ready for some real food. Wanna go somewhere a little more lively?” I said to him.

“Sounds like a great idea.” Michael said as we got up and left the ball together.

Preview: Captain Kevin's Conquest

Captain Kevin was a brave, adventurous, handsome, and strong pirate, but he was also a romantic gentleman. He’s the kind of pirate who’s dashing to the ladies, yet fearsome to many other pirates when it comes to treasure. He was known was “The Seven Seas Thief” because he and his mighty crew would take the treasures before the other crews can get to it.

Beyond him being a pirate, he’s also a very handsome pirate. He was tall with dark green eyes, a goatee, and a tall, fit body. Aside from being a thief, he was also a charming, seductive romancer. He would also seduce and charm widows, maids, and wives while his crew searches the houses for treasures. One day, Captain Kevin and his crew had sailed into Jamaica, where this wealthy war captain named Andrew McVeigh lived in the summers. Captain McVeigh was on a voyage, leaving the house empty and the only person there was their upstairs maid named Kristina.

Kristina was straightening up the bedrooms while downstairs Captain Kevin and his hearty crew quietly sneaked into the house. She heard some noise as she went downstairs to the living room. Just as she was about to scream, Captain Kevin came up to her and silenced her scream with a deep, passionate kiss as he took her hand. They went upstairs to her maid quarters where Captain Kevin introduced himself to her.

“Who are you?” Kristina asked.

“The name’s Captain Kevin also known as “The Seven Seas Thief”.” He said as he kissed Kristina’s hand like a true gentleman.

Kristina felt a tingle between her thighs as she looked into Kevin’s dark green eyes. Her tingle increased as she felt his hand letting down her dark red hair as it fell down to her shoulders.

Custom Made

My name is Alexandra Maria Evangeline Laurence and I love things that sparkle. Even though I came from a wealthy family, we’re also a hard-working family. My mom Lila owned a spa and has her own line of bath and body products, my dad Michael owned and operated a men’s suit shop, my older brother Anthony’s a pro-soccer-star-in-the-making/ physical therapist, and my younger sister Crystal’s studying to be an entrepreneur so she can start her own cosmetics/fragrance company, aspiring to become the next Elizabeth Arden or Estee Lauder. As for myself, I’m an aspiring fashion/jewelry/accessory designer, currently while I work at Saks Fifth Avenue as a sales associate and a cashier at American Eagle Outfitters. You’re probably wondering why a rich girl like me is working two jobs at two clothing stores. You see I go to design school and I make extra money for tuition, books, an apartment, etc. My siblings and I got trust funds which we can’t touch till we’re 30, but we don’t mind that at all because we all got something to work for.

Even though the economy’s shaky, we kept ourselves busy. We also chipped in to help our parents out. Sometimes, they even borrowed money from us. Other than wealth, we also travel and socialize with a lot of people. Not only do we work, earn, and spend, we even participated in charitable events for the community. For example, last October my mom participated in a 5K run for breast cancer awareness. I recently threw an event called “The Haiti Hop”, which was a dance party/benefit that raised money for the people of Haiti affected by the devastating earthquake. I personally believe that fund-raising should be fun.

Today, I went to Sparkle & Shine, a popular jewelry/accessory shop downtown. My BFF Sadie Valeria Portia Darlington, an aspiring MAM (model/actress/mogul), had a birthday coming up in two weeks. I went into the store to make her a custom-made diamond necklace as a gift to her. While I was there, I took a look at the extensive and exquisite selections the store had offered. I looked at a black satin headband with a red rose and decorated with Swarovski crystals. As I looked at the accessories section, I had noticed a banner that said, “We do custom orders!”

I walked up to the front of the jewelry section, looked at the person up front, and said, “Excuse me, I noticed that you do custom orders here at the store.”

A handsome, young, man looked at me and replied, “Why yes we do. Is there something I can make for you, miss?”

“Yes, actually I was wondering if you can make a necklace for my best friend. Her birthday’s in two weeks.” I said to him.

“Sure thing. My name’s David and I’m the jeweler and I’m also the salesperson here.” He said.

“I’m Alexandra, but you can call me Alex.” I said to him.

“So what kind of necklace does your friend like?” David asked me.

“Sadie likes a necklace where she can wear low, like down to her belly button. She also loves colored diamonds and her favorite colors are pink, blue, purple, and yellow.” I replied.

David was this nice and handsome man with short, dark blonde hair and green eyes. “Your best friend has good taste. So what’s her birthstone?” He said.

I replied, “Her birthday’s in March, so her birthstone is aquamarine.”

David smiled at me and said, “Sounds lovely. My birthday’s in September, which makes my birthstone a sapphire. What’s your birthstone?”

“My birthday’s in May, so mine’s an emerald.” I replied.

David then got out his sketch pad and started designing my best friend’s birthday necklace. While he sketched out a design for the necklace, I did a little shopping for myself and got a little something for Crystal too. I got her a four-strand freshwater pearl necklace, a red leather headband with black lace on top, and a three heart-shaped diamond bracelet. I got myself that headband that I first saw, a diamond-and-lace choker necklace, and a sterling silver charm bracelet.

After a couple of minutes, David said to me, “Alex, can you come here for a minute? I want you to check out my design for your friend’s necklace.”

He showed me the design he made for the necklace. The design was a five-strand necklace set in silver and white gold. The first strand had pink diamonds; the second strand had blue diamonds, the third strand had purple diamonds, the fourth strand had yellow diamonds, and the fifth and final strand had aquamarine stones which led to a heart-shaped pendant filled with aquamarine stones. Plus, all five strands were in different lengths. I found it very impressive and amazing.

“That’s amazing, David! I can’t wait to see how it would look once it is all finished.” I said with a smile on my face.

He even showed me the design for the back of the necklace, which had a lobster clasp that’s also adjustable. Then, David started looking into my deep brown eyes.

“I’m seeing a twinkle in your eyes that sparkles like the jewels.” He said to me.

I smiled and blushed at his compliment. He slowly walked up to me and softly kissed my lips. His kisses were warm, soft, and sensual. As we kissed, he placed my Kate Spade bag on a hook at the back of the office door. I got a look at David for a brief moment, not only is he handsome, he’s also tall. I returned his kiss on the lips with a much more passionate one. I slowly unbuttoned his black, royal blue, and gray striped button-down shirt. OMG! He had a body on him! He was ripped in a Taylor Lautner-type way and his skin was smooth to the touch. David then unbuttoned my dark gray striped vest. Once he took off my vest, he placed his hands on my waist. I unbuttoned the buttons on my white button down quarter-sleeved blouse one by one. David slowly made a caress trail from the top of my dark brown-covered head to my curvy waist. I moaned as his lips then moved down to my neck as my hands stroked up and down his frontal body. His hands gently smoothed down the blouse from my body.

He then kneeled to the floor and carefully took off my Nine West heels. After that, David and his hands slowly crawled back up to me. He deeply kissed my lips again as my hands rested on his shoulders. David reached around to the back of my white lace bra and unhooked it. Once my womanly breasts were freed, David cupped them in his hands. He then lowered his mouth onto my breasts, kissing and sucking them. I let out a soft, deep moan as he orally pleasured them. My hands traveled down David’s body, from the tops of the shoulders to his eight-pack abs. David then picked me up and sat me down on the work desk.

He unbuttoned and unzipped my black stretch pants, sliding them off my womanly, hourglass-shaped body. My moans and groans told him how much I was enjoying it. I was in my white satin panties while David was in his jeans. He kneeled in front of me, pushed aside my panties, and slipped two fingers inside my tight pussy. I felt so tight and was gradually getting wet by the minute. After that, he gently spreaded my woman lips. There, his tongue lightly flickered at my pearl between my thighs. He switched between licking it with his tongue and sucking it with his mouth. My moans reached higher and louder as I held his head into place. He just loves to pleasure my girl pearl.

As he orally pleasured me, David briefly looked into my eyes; seeing my arousal face. After he kissed my lips, it was my turn to pleasure him. I took my time taking off his jeans and then his Ralph Lauren boxer briefs. I softly licked his cock before taking him into my mouth. While I tasted him, David let his hand stroke, run through, and play with my waist-length, dark brown hair. His sighs and moans were vocal sounds of ecstasy, meaning he enjoyed it. Once he got hard, David was ready to explore my woman cave. I took out a lubricated condom from my purse and gave it to him. Good thing I carry plenty of condoms in my purse. David opened the condom and put it on his already hardened cock.

Next, he held on to my hips as he slowly and deeply entered me. He thrusted in and out of my pussy while he held me close to his body. I lightly moaned close to his ear. My hands went up and down his back before resting them on firm backside. His thrusts became harder and deeper by the minute. Our bodies rubbed against each other, causing a lustful, pheromone-induced friction between us. Then, he pulled his cock out with the condom still attached to it. I took off a freshwater pearl single strand necklace from my neck, gathered it in my hand, and rubbed it up and down his still hard cock. I briefly watched him moan and smile at the sensation.

Finally, he came and his man milk gushed inside the condom. I looked up and David kissed my lips one more time. We gathered each other’s clothes and got dressed.

“This was beyond fantastic, it was electrifying!” David happily exclaimed.

“I concur completely.” I replied with a smile.

I took my purse from the hook behind the door and we both stepped out of the office.

I asked David, “So will the necklace be ready in time for my friend’s birthday?”

He said, “I’ll have it ready in a couple of days.”

“Great!” I exclaimed happily as I paid for the order with my platinum card, which was approved.

I took out my Blackberry and added David to both my contact list and the invite list.

“I added you to my contact list and expect an invitation in a few days.” I said.

“Thanks, I look forward to it.” He replied as I paid for my other purchases in cash.

As I received my purchases in a glittery silver and black shopping bag, I said to David, “Thanks, David. I’ll see you at the party. I have more errands to do; some of them are party related.”

“Thanks for shopping at Sparkle & Shine! Have a great day and come back soon.” David said happily.

A couple of days later before Sadie’s birthday, my birthday present for Sadie had arrived in the mail by way of a special delivery package. The necklace was in a beautiful black and silver velvet box with a silver satin ribbon in the front. In the same delivery box, there was another black and silver box. This one had a handwritten note card in front of it. On the front, it said “To Alex…” I took the card and read the inside.

The inside of the card said, “I made this emerald-and-diamond necklace and thought of you. Even though emerald is your birthstone, I’m a guy who believes that diamonds are every girl’s best friend. I look forward to seeing you again. Hope you enjoy this lovely token courtesy of me. With love, David.”

I opened up the box and there was a triple strand emerald-and-diamond necklace, which was set in platinum with a magnetic fastener in the back. The strands were in three different lengths with the last strand down to the décolleté area. The necklace also had an emerald butterfly pendant on the last strand. I loved it and looked forward to wearing it at the party. I also couldn’t wait to see Sadie’s reaction to her present at the party as well.
