#8Sunday: A romance author emerges from the writing cave…

Billy writes erotic romance. Mary Sue is his neglected wife. Here’s another snippet from Stolen Moments, a humorous romance that tells it like it is! I think this will be the final snippet for Weekend Writing Warriors; next week I might switch to my cyborg sci-fi romance.

StolenMoments600x900His cheeks dimpled with pleasure, and the last vestiges of her irritation melted away. His large hands dwarfed the beer can as he popped the tab. Tossing his head back, he took a long, slow pull. Mary Sue watched him, enjoying the movement of his Adam’s apple as he drank. Billy had a killer smile and laughing eyes, a perfect-V torso, and a muscled physique. The accident and subsequent surgery had left him with a few jagged scars on his back, but they didn’t affect his good looks an iota. No one would ever guess this poster boy for machismo wrote romances under a female pseudonym. Of course, if they did, he might sell even more books.

Mary Sue could envision female fans lining up in droves to meet him. She’d have to beat them off with a stick, and she wouldn’t hesitate to do it either.

Get Stolen Moments for 99 cents on Amazon

Is it crazy to be jealous of a fictional character?

While Mary Sue is proud of her construction-worker husband Billy’s new-found success as an author of spanking novels, she also finds herself resentful of Beverly Golightly, the fictional heroine who gets everything Mary Sue wants: her man’s undivided attention, lots of hot loving, and many delicious spankings.

But is Mary Sue’s jealousy any crazier than the plan she hatches to recapture her husband’s attention?

Note: Even though Stolen Moments contains spanking, it’s a light, fun book. Don’t be afraid of the spanking. Give it a try! It’s only 99 cents (and free with Kindle Unlimited).

    Apparently, this book is already in my library. Guess this is the second time it intrigued me.

  2. Laurel Lasky says:

    This was such a delightful funny story. I generally don’t read short stories as I like the long ones. This was so great that I will read it two or more time.

  3. As a male romance writer who once inspired a bestselling romance that gave me my nickname Mr. Valentine, I can relate to this story!

    • Cara Bristol says:

      LOL. I think most authors, male or female, will relate to this story. An readers can see what it’s really like to be author.

  4. Cara, your writing style is delightful. I must get a Kindle!

    • Cara Bristol says:

      You can download it to the “Kindle Cloud” and read it on your computer. But if you do get a Kindle, I recommend the Paperwhite.

  5. Great description and I love the cover.

  6. This is so playful and fun. The plot, too, sounds delicious. Thanks for sharing.

    Nothing wrong with a few extra sexy scars and that Mary Sue’s a feisty one.
    Great snip, Cara

  8. Loved the excerpt! I could just see this guy acquiring groupies and her beating them off!
