Well, my Valentine’s novella came out yesterday. Yay!!! Wahoo!
Here’s an excerpt from Cursed by Cupid:
“I told you, this is dangerous. The curse could take you down at any moment,” she reminded him.
“I have been warned,” he agreed. “I’m taking my life into my own hands by coming here, but it’s worth it. Let’s look at this chain letter first, and I’ll show you what’s in the bag.” He held up a small, black, plastic sack.
“Okay, I printed it out. It was an email.” He followed her through her condo to a computer she had off her kitchen. “I got the email three years ago, and ever since, it’s been obvious.”
“I haven’t had a second date since. Plus, I was never clumsy before. Now, if there is a single guy within a mile, I’m guaranteed to make a complete fool of myself in front of him. I’ve fallen into two fountains, three pools… A dock collapsed while I was on it last year. I was at a benefit for the local animal shelter. All of a sudden, kaboom, I was neck-deep in water, and the strap to my dress broke. Luckily, there were lily pads, otherwise, I would have been charged with indecent exposure.”
“See, there, that doesn’t sound so unlucky. I would have enjoyed being there for that.”
“I broke my wrist.”
“I take it back.”
“My pride was hurt worse.” She handed him the printout. “When you have to use lily pads for makeshift pasties—trust me, you don’t notice your wrist is broken until you’re running away screaming for other reasons.”
