Celebrating Cara Bristol's Hot New Contemporary From Black Velvet Seductions

Today we're celebrating the Black Velvet Seductions release of Cara Bristol's SECRET DESIRES.

Cara has written professionally as a newspaper reporter and public relations specialist, but her real love is fiction. An avid reader, her favorite books are romance novels, and once she discovered erotic romance, she knew what she wanted to write! Her erotic romances are hot and steamy. Secret Desires is her second erotic romance novella. Her first one, Intimate Submission, was released last fall. She is writing two other erotic romances, each fight for equal time. When she’s not writing or reading, she enjoys traveling, surfing the internet, beachcombing, and, though she hates to admit it, watching reality TV shows. She has one husband, two stepkids and two cats.


A Black Velvet Seductions' Domestic Discipline Story by Cara Bristol

Office manager Morgan Moran knows there are good surprises and bad surprises. Good is getting into the hairdresser on a cancellation or being treated to a luxury spa day by your boyfriend. Bad is having that boyfriend pop THE question before you're ready.

As her thirtieth birthday approaches, Morgan fears her boyfriend of two years will ask her marry him. She loves him to death - but she's not sure that she can love him until death-does-she-part. Although Jack is kind, gentle, thoughtful and built like a sex god, he's boring in the sack. She's just not sure she can settle for a lifetime of vanilla sex when she really craves thirty-one flavors.

In his younger days, thirty-five-year-old Jack Hudson sowed some wild oats. Really wild--the kind of oats that he knows would shock his girlfriend. He's cleaned up his act and become a responsible, respectable veterinarian. He's ready to settle down and ask Morgan to be his wife. He's crazy about this sexy, sassy spitfire. She keeps him on his toes. Unfortunately, she also keeps him waiting. And waiting. She's late to everything. It's almost as if she's trying to push his buttons, and if she's late one more time...he's going to spank her.

When Morgan shows up three hours after own birthday celebration begins, she forces Jack to take a very firm stand, unleashing a night of passionate discovery that fulfills all of Morgan's secret desires. But in the harsh glare of morning, she's forced to wonder if the price she paid for fulfillment was too high, and if she and Jack can have a future together after all.

  1. Super congrats on the new release Cara!!!

    I just read the excerpt - really makes you want more - which is what an excerpt should do :-)

    Can you tell us a little bit about how this story came to be?

    Enjoy your very special day and I hope it's a huge seller for you!

  2. WOW... *fans self* Wow.... Can't wait to get my hands on this one!

  3. It's great to be here today. I've been looking forward to this.

    For me, writing is part unconscious, part conscious, so in any story I write there are things that happen and things that I make happen. Also, stories evolve as I write them, becoming much different than originally envisioned by the end.

    With that said...Secret Desires began as a strip poker game in my head. That was the unconcious initial spark. Ultimately, the story evolved away from that when I consciously decided I wanted to make it a spanking story and needed to give Jack a reason to spank Morgan. I thought about all the possible pet peeves Jack could have and decided that Morgan would be one of those people who are chronically late. Many people find that very rude an annoying. And, that's how it started...

    So I'd like to ask the question...what are your pet peeves? Are there any offenses that are spankable?

  4. Sounds like a good book. I like it when a character is more than what he/she shows to the world. Like those bad boys!

  5. In Secret Desires, Morgan likes the bad boys, too. That's what makes her hesitant to commit to Jack. She thinks he's too nice, a pushover. But then she discovers he's really a bad boy at heart!

  6. Congratulations on your new book!

    Wow! I read the excerpt and it looks hot! It's nice to see that a "good" guy like Jack can have a "bad" side to him too. Morgan is a lucky girl. Can't wait to read it....

  7. The excerpt was great Cara! I love how you describe that she still wants '31 flavors' not just vanilla in the sack:) That's hilarious but true what girl wouldn't want it that way.


  8. I love that Morgan thinks that Jack isn't as dark as he really is. I love it when what you want is right in front of you.


  9. Congratulations on your latest release. Sounds like a scorcher.

    I have to admit it, but I'm a reality tv watcher too. Mostly Survivor, Amazing Race and Hell's Kitchen.


  10. Congrats on your lastest book!
    Sounds like a very hot read.

  11. Thanks everybody for dropping by. I appreciate all your comments. And a big thanks to Authorisland. Have a great week and happy reading!

  12. Congrats on your new release of a smooken hot book!

  13. Congrats on the newest release. It sounds like a great book! I love reading about lite spanking and such but in the real world, that just hasn't pushed my buttons. Funny how so many of my favorite triggers in fantasy don't do it in real life.


  14. Wow, Cara--your writing is new to me, but it sounds good! I'll be looking forward to reading some of it!

  15. Yes, fantasy is separate from real life. I've told my husband, don't surprise me with the stuff I write about!

  16. I really enjoyed reading the excerpt. This sounds like a very good book and I can't wait to read more.


  17. Congrats Cara on your new release. I loved the blurb and it's now on my TRL.
