From Destiny’s Chance: A lie by omission, and a darn good reason for it

400 x 600

Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors in which authors excerpt 8-10 sentences from a work. Mine is from Destiny’s Chance, a paranormal romance. Not paranormal as in shifters and vamps, but paranormal as in psychics and reincarnation.

This is what has transpired so far: Destiny Grable and Zoe Richards were in a car accident. Destiny wakes up in the hospital to find out that “Destiny” died, but her soul has taken possession of Zoe’s body. So Destiny is alive, but everyone–including Zoe’s boyfriend Chance–believes she’s Zoe. Chance comes to the hospital to take her home. The first line is Chance’s:

“How do you feel?”

“I’m stiff–sore.” You have to tell him the truth. If he and Zoe had gotten back together, he’d have certain expectations.

Her parents hadn’t recognized her voice. The hospital literally had tagged her as Zoe. How would she convince him? If she told him the truth right now, he might call the nurse, who would call Dr. Hahn, and they might not allow her to leave. She could end up in the psych ward with no one to vouch for her sanity, confirm her identity.

Book Description

Fate gave her a chance for love.  Is she brave enough to accept it?

Destiny Grable has loved Chance Everett for as long as she could remember, but he was never interested in her until a tragic act of fate grants her heart’s desire. Now Chance is all hers—body, mind, and soul. But once they’re together, she discovers he has a kinky side she never knew about. Is she ready for it? Can she handle it? And Chance isn’t the only one with a secret. If he discovers what she’s hiding, will he still want her?

I’m thinking I want to switch to something else for the next week’s WeWriWa. What would you prefer to read about? Should I go back and excerpt more from Trapped with the Cyborg? Or reveal some of my September spanking romance release, Domestic Discipline? Please leave a comment.

  1. You do find the most interesting situations to place you characters in. Good job.

  2. That’s quite the predicament. Very intriguing, too!

  3. What a frustrating and scary situation! It’ll be interesting to see how she deals with it.

  4. What an unusual plot, and quite intriguing, to be trapped in someone else’s body. I can see her point about not telling the doctors.

    Re next week’s snippet, anything you choose will be good. It always is!

  5. Quite the dilemma! Really a fascinating story, great snippet…

  6. Ooh, love the premise! And yes, what’s going to happen when his “expectations” kick in? Will she have to play along, or find a way to convince him?

  7. I’m thinking you have everyone’s attention and now you want to switch? LOL! Great snippet!

  8. Jenna Jaxon says:

    Did Destiny’s parents not recognize her voice, or Zoe’s? How confusing for her and frustrating not having anyone to confide in. Can’t wait to see what she does!

    • Cara Bristol says:

      She sounds like Zoe. Her parent’s didn’t recognize her at all, and when she called saying, “It’s Destiny,” and they believed their daughter to be dead, well, their reaction wasn’t good…

  9. The premise sounds a bit like a serious version of a TV show, Drop Dead Diva, though I can tell already you’re taking it in a very different direction.

  10. This is a crazy situation she’s in. Who’d believe her? She’s probably better keeping quiet for now.

    I vote cyborg. 🙂
