Right. Funny. Ha ha.
It is a dark romance. And I hate how dark romance has now come to imply BDSM. There's nothing wrong with BDSM fiction, but there is nothing dark about kink to me. It's what we do. It's not how we feel.
Dark implies pain, fear, the outcasts of the world, the demonic and the personal torment of everyday life, etc., etc. You can't slap a dark cover on a book with characters who are tied up and call it a dark romance. Well, you can, but you will lose my vote.
Anyway, just like fantasy has now come to mean werewolves and vampires, dark fiction has been lost upon some fad that may or may not stick around.
Anyway, The Kissing Partner is a short story, and it is DARK. Call it horror. Call it supernatural thriller. Either way, the MC finds herself in a scary yet ironic situation when confronted with her own personal baggage.
I love this story. I love the characters. And I hope that you will too.
Here is the blurb:
Be careful what you wish for...
Cadence Longfellow is married to a germophobe. He won't touch her. He won't even kiss her.
Out of desperation and longing, she places an ad for a kissing partner, thinking that some innocent physical contact will solve her problems.
She gets a kissing partner all right. And in an ironic twist of fate, it might be more than she bargained for, putting her marriage and her life in jeopardy.
The Kissing Partner is a romantic thriller short read.
