Brilliant purple beams focused on him in the spotlight, while the musicians and other dancers lingered in darkened shadows.

He was dressed entirely in black, his long dark hair cascading loosely over his shoulders, hanging down his expansive back. Form-fitting pants clung to his long legs, emphasizing the bulging muscles in his powerful thighs. An open jacket with long tuxedo tails revealed his bare, sculpted torso and rippled abdomen, where the familiar tattoo of the flamenco dancer twirled sensuously up his left side.

Ella’s breath hitched as she beheld him. He was magnificent. Intoxicating. Mesmerizing.

As three guitarists began playing, the purple lights illuminated them, and Jean-Luc moved in rhythm with the slow, plaintive melody. He extended his arms and raised them high overhead, lifting the sides of his jacket like windswept wings of an eagle about to take flight. Undulating his hips as his arms joined together over his head, he lifted an impassioned face to the sky, the melancholy notes of the music evoking the suffering of his soul.

He clenched a fist high above his upturned face, pulling his hand down slowly, opening his fingers to trace his forehead, bearded chin, and elongated, exposed neck. He stopped the descent of his hand from the sky to form a fist clenched protectively over his vulnerable heart. Wrapping the sides of his jacket to envelop his torso, like a wounded hawk tucking its wings, Jean-Luc raised an anguished face to the crowd.

And penetrated Ella with piercing, impassioned eyes.

My Review:

Flames of Flamenco takes us to Paris where we get to see Paris through the eyes of the characters. The descriptions make it so easy to believe that you are seeing Paris as well.

Flames of Flamenco is a whirlwind romance between Ella, a teacher in Florida, and Jean-Luc an intriguing artist who sketches portraits on the trendy Place du Tertre and dances flamenco at the local tablao.

Their romance comes on strong and fast as the heat rises between Ella and Jean-Luc every time they are together. Their time together becomes hot and steamy every time.

Ella meets Jean-Luc on the street where he is working sketching portraits. Ella has Jean-Luc to sketch her portrait and that is just the beginning of their romance.
