Valerie: Daughter of the Dragon is the pulse-pounding debut of Indie author Robert S. Fuller’s Valerie Trilogy. While collaborating on a fashion show, Samantha Hammond, a forty-year old Display Manager, draws the amorous attention of the mysterious clothing designer Valerie Ross. Samantha’s journey of self-discovery takes her from the security of her hometown to the shores of a secluded paradise, where forbidden desires and dangerous obsessions are ignited. As their relationship flourishes, Samantha learns that Valerie harbors a terrifying secret. The revelation thrusts Samantha into a nightmarish world where vampires and witches dwell, not just in the dark, but around every corner. Pamela Darius, a murderous vampire adversary from Valerie’s past, uses Samantha, and those around her as pawns in a deadly game filled with seduction, pain, betrayal, and death. Every turn of the page manages to ratchet up the suspense.
Valerie caresses Samantha’s hands and gently probes her thoughts attempting to read if the feeling is mutual. Valerie’s answer comes from Samantha’s lips rather than her mind as she impulsively leans close and tenderly kisses Valerie. The electricity in their lips causes Samantha to tremble with excitement.
Samantha’s mind reels as a sudden rush of wanton desire courses through her body beginning at her feet and ending at her head and touching every place in between. Valerie’s body is like a magnet that inexplicitly draws Samantha towards it. Samantha’s mind ceases to be under her control and she relinquishes all thought and strives to exist in one moment. A flame of searing need and lust engulfs her.
Reluctantly, Valerie pushes Samantha away letting go of her hands. Samantha pants breathlessly as a wave of shame and guilt washes over her forcing her to look down at the floor. Valerie brushes a strand of hair from Samantha’s face. Samantha looks up when she feels Valerie’s cool hand caressing her enflamed cheek. Samantha instinctively leans the weight of her face onto Valerie’s hand as the coolness soothes her flushed face.
“I’m sorry…,” Samantha begins, but is cut of by Valerie placing her index finger over Samantha’s lips silencing her.
“Don’t apologize. There’s much we need to discuss before we let ourselves take this any further. I have to leave,” Valerie says as she stands, gathers her coat and scarf, and walks to the door. She turns back to face Samantha who has followed her to the door.
“If you still desire it, I promise there will other times,” Valerie says leaning forward and placing a soft kiss upon Samantha’s quivering lips. The flame that Samantha had extinguished when Valerie pushed her away roars back to life again. Their lips brush together once more as Samantha’s knees nearly give out.
“There is so much we can learn and teach each other if our minds are open,” Valerie whispers into Samantha’s thoughts as she allows their lips to mingle for a second longer.
Valerie draws back grinning as she looks at the contented look on Samantha’s face. She opens the door allowing the night air to rush in before nodding her goodbye and closing the door behind her. Samantha collapses against the door, her chest heaving as her heart pounds out of control. She places her hand over her mouth in an attempt to hold onto the coolness of Valerie’s kiss. She imagines that this is some sort of dream, but the taste of Valerie’s lips on her own proves otherwise.
She slides down the door until she is sitting on the floor with her back against the door. She thinks about the kiss and how it felt unlike any she has felt in a long time. She licks her lips and realizes that she is acting like a schoolgirl floating on a cloud. Her head begins to ache as the blood rushes to her temples making them throb with her beating heart.
She looks around the room as it begins to spin slightly. She convinces herself that her headache is the product of too much alcohol and the sudden rush of emotions swirling around inside of her. She has no idea that the actual reason for her dizziness is Valerie unlinking their minds. The lightheadedness passes quickly.
“Sleep well, my love,” Valerie’s voice whispers in of Samantha’s thoughts. It becomes the last thought she has before stretching out on the living room floor, closing her eyes, and falling asleep with the feeling of Valerie’s lips seductively brushing hers.
