Cynthia and Tony Crenshaw enjoy adding a little spice to their sex life. An empty Montana train station and a hot summer night hardly seem likely to feature in a sexual fantasy, but it does.
After a visit with her elderly grandmother, Cynthia is taking the train to meet Tony when a rock slide leaves her stranded in the station. She is shocked when her gorgeous husband enters and introduces himself as Rod Hardfelt. A delighted Cynthia quickly falls into Tony's fantasy and
After the stationmaster leaves for the night, it isn't long before Rod has Cinnamon nude and begging for satisfaction. They spend the night steaming up the station in pursuit of sexual perfection.
Morning finds Cinnamon alone, but achingly happy. Eventually the train arrives and Tony is waiting in the sleeper car wearing his Stetson and a smile.
He’s got to go to a boring old seminar. She’s stuck at a train station. Think it’ll be sad or bland? Think again. Sometimes the fantasy is the best when you can love the one you’re with.
Such is the story of Cinnamon.
I love stories where the hero and heroine can’t get enough of each other. This is one of those stories. The passion between Cynthia and Tony is so thick you can cut it with a knife. So is the heat in the train station. I felt like I was there melting along with them and being cooled by the scant breeze from the fan.
Ms. Denis’s story drew me in from the first page. He’s going away but he can’t bear to leave her. The compromise he comes up with is hot and so much fun. I could relate, being married for a while, there are times when you want to shake things up. I loved how Tony took things into his own hands and gave her a night to remember. It was indeed a steamy fantasy.
What I wasn’t totally sure of was how Cynthia tended to pass out. This could’ve been taken a couple different ways, and it still could be if this story has a follow up. I got that it was hotter than blazes in the station and sort of wondered why they didn’t go on the platform where it might have been cooler. Just a thought and really not pertinent. I liked the story as is and have already read it again and again.
If you want a story that has wonderful characters and lots of steamy sex, then you need to read Cinnamon. I give this story 4 cherries. Awesome job.
