Bull is in charge of keeping overzealous fans from getting backstage and away from the performers at Gemstone Burlesque. No one gets past him unless he wants them to. Ruby is one of the performers that Bull provides security for, but lately his interest in her seems to be a little more than professional. When Ruby isn’t rehearsing or performing, her nose is always buried in a romance book though she doesn’t have a “romance” of her own. However everyday she finds herself noticing Bull more and more. Attraction between adults is normal and most people are interested in romance. But, will Bull be the man that gives Ruby a story of her own? ***Gemstone Burlesque is a thirteen part, erotic romance serial. There will be thirteen different short stories. All are standalones. All stories will be between 7500-9500 words. THIS IS NOT EROTICA.
