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.
His 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.
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).
