Guest blog: Secrets and surprises of a close relationship
By Cara Bristol
Did you ever learn something new about your partner?
My husband and I recently marked our 23rd wedding anniversary. We dated for five years before we got married, so we’ve known each for 28 years. I think it’s fair to say we know each other really well.
And yet…I only recently learned that he likes banana pudding a lot. After 28 years together, how did I not know that about him? I know he loves mashed potatoes and gravy, cookies and milk, and lemon meringue pie, but somehow, I never knew he really, really likes banana pudding.
It’s always possible to learn something knew about somebody you think you know well. Or you discover that what you believe to be true, isn’t the case.
The hero and heroine of Destiny’s Chance are “platonic” friends, but Destiny has secretly loved Chance for as long as she’s known him. When a tragic act of fate brings them together as lovers, she believes she’s finally been granted her heart’s desire. But what she soon discovers is that Chance is a very kinky man—something she never knew about him. And Destiny has her own secret, one so incredible, it might just be the end of the new relationship.
Destiny’s Chance Blurb:
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?
Destiny’s Chance was previously published in 2013. This is a re-release.
A silk kimono slithered off a hanger to land on a chest on the floor of the closet. She hung up the robe and eyed the trunk. Made of aged, saddlelike leather, it had thick rawhide handles and brass hardware.
She dropped to her haunches. “Probably locked anyway.”
She pressed the button. The latch popped. She wavered, then surrendered to curiosity and lifted the lid.
“Oh my God!” She clapped a hand over her mouth and fell on her ass. “That’s his kink.” She stared at the treasure trove of spanking implements. Paying attention to how she removed them so she could replace them exactly as she’d found them, she examined the items. Several paddles of different shapes and sizes in both leather and wood. A pom-pom-like flogger with supple soft leather strands and a stiff wooden handle. Some common items: a hairbrush, a wooden spoon, a ruler. And a strop resembling a belt split into two parts. A tawse! She’d heard of them but never had seen one until now.
She smacked her palm with it. Biting. How would it feel against a bare bottom? She pictured herself laid out like an offering over Chance’s lap as he spanked her bottom until it was supersensitive and then stung her cheeks with the tawse.
Her pussy cheered with a twitch.
She fantasized often about being spanked but had no idea if she’d like it if she experienced it. However, she loved leather—appreciated its hard and soft textures, its masculine scent, the snap it made. Such a versatile material. Sensual. Sexy. She stroked the soft strands of the flogger, then whacked her palm with the tawse again.
She sat cross-legged on the floor like a little girl playing with grown-up toys. All she required for some really wicked games was a playmate named Chance.
