Do you remember your first time? Of course you do. Everyone does. The fantasy, the anticipation, the racing heartbeat as you dive into unknown territory. Vivid memories are etched into my mind; images of my hands slightly trembling as I caress each side, the intoxicating smell as I opened that cover and looked inside for the first time. A stolen moment that made me fearful of being caught. I wrapped you in my arms anyways and took you into my room in secret.
Adult Read Blogfest
July 24/25was the "1st Adult Book Read" blogfest hosted by the Heroines with Hearts. All you had to do for this blogfest was share with us the first adult book you ever read and Post your entry to your blog July 24th/25th. Because of the devastating events in Norway I decided to withdraw. My mind and heart was just not in it. Today however, I feel like sharing.
From Nancy Drew to Angelique. At the age of twelve I found a collection of books in my mothers bedroom. I had read all the Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden detective books, and was ready to go from detective to criminal as I snatched one of these books and fled to my room. Who did I take with me for my first?
The adventures and sexual misadventures of a poor young beauty of France. A series of books written by
Angelique is forced to return from the convent to be married to a man she has never met, Comte Joffrey de Peyrac de Morens, Lord of Toulouse. He is a man with a fearsome reputation. He is scarred and lame, but richer than the king (allegedly) and reputed to be a wizard. Angelique is determined that she will not give herself to Joffrey and he is patient. What she did not know about her new husband is that he is devoted to the art of love, and has the voice of an angel. He is also devoted to his young wife and once he manages to convince Angelique of his love, the couple have a period of happiness. But this is the middle ages and with lots of intrigue and jealousy between the Church and the Royal Court, a man who apparently has the skills of witchcraft that enable him to cause many women to fall in love with him despite his physical infirmities as well as to be able to magically conjure gold out of rocks where there is no gold present is always going to be in danger. And so the adventures of Angelique kept me company as my own adventures into womanhood began.
If you want to share your first time, I would love to hear about it.
