Emmi and Mark have always been totally honest with each other. She’s hopeful that by talking it out with Mark her fantasy will be allocated to just that and her obsession with it will fade. Emmi is scared to admit that she has this fantasy. She’s not sure how Mark will react to hearing about her fantasy. It might even mean the end of their engagement.
Mark is far from happy to learn about Emmi’s burgeoning fantasies toward his best friend. After he’s had time to calm down and think about it, he realizes that the idea is exciting to him too. What will happen when he decides that Emmi’s fantasy should be looked into further? Jay is Mark’s best friend. Will their relationship become strained if Mark asks him to participate in a menage? Will Jay even agree to participate in Emmi’s fantasy?
From the very first page Ruby Storm’s ESSENCE OF EMERALD captures the readers interest. I became very intrigued by Emmi, Mark and Jay, their situation, and the emotions that are almost tangible. I loved the heartfelt honesty between the characters and the adult way they sit down and discuss the possibility of fulfilling Emmi’s fantasy. It’s obvious that the friendship they share is extremely important to all of them and somehow that makes their menage much more personal and sweet. While the menage is undoubtably very hot and exciting, it’s the emotional interaction and trust between them that brings an extra satisfying spark to this storyline. This is a thrilling story that I will definitely be adding to my keeper shelf to read again in the near future.
Watch for the next novella in Ms. Ruby’s menage stories - PERFECTING PEARL to be released March 28, 2007. Each of these stories has been a real gem and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed both SAPPHIRE’S SEDUCTION and ESSENCE OF EMERALD.
