I pulled a switcheroo. For this Sunday’s Weekend Writing Warriors’s post, I’d intended to excerpt from Longing, my vampire romance. Instead, I’m focusing on my new romantic comedy, Stolen Moments. In this story the hero is an erotic romance author; the heroine is his neglected wife who longs for the attention he showers on his characters. If you’ve never read a spanking romance, this is a good one try. It’s light and funny; nothing too heavy. Authors will appreciate the writer/spouse dynamic.
What do you do all day? Been workin’ Billy? After he’d recovered from his accident, he had to account for his time, so they’d concocted a story that he wrote computer manuals from home, thinking the job too boring to attract interest, but they’d failed to account for neighbors who needed computer help. Believing they had a cyber-expert in their midst, they’d started calling with questions.
“Erotic romance they might have been able to handle,” she said. “Spanking stories?” She shook her head. “They’d all be wondering if you paddle me.” Her heart thumped. I wish.
Stolen Moments is only 99 cents on Amazon!
Stolen Moment’s blurb
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?
