Sapphire is the featured performer at Gemstone Burlesque, one of Baton Rouge’s top clubs. Her unique look, hourglass figure, and sultry voice have men, and some women, packing the club nightly and reveling in her appeal. Jaxon throws a bachelor party at the club and is taken off guard when Sapphire, the object of his teenage fantasies, takes the stage and awakens feelings in him he thought were long gone. Sapphire remembers the torment she faced as a teenager from Jaxon and his friends for her appearance. Jaxon remembers things very differently. Can the humiliated woman and the infatuated man clarify what actually happened as teenagers and take a chance on each other? Some of the most beautiful things on earth are created by extreme heat. Will the flame of desire that these two can’t deny create something lasting or will it fizzle out before they have a chance to be consumed? ***Gemstone Burlesque is a fourteen part, erotic romance serial.
