We’ve partnered with Book+Main to have a few Romance novelists write short stories that incorporate Pure Romance Parties or Products over the coming months. This is our first one. We hope you enjoy!

Melanie Moreland’s Pure Romance Story “Bite.”

I pushed open the door, holding it ajar with my shoulder and listening intently. I could hear the sound of laughter drifting down the hall, so I knew Becca still had her friends here. She had ordered me out for the evening, telling me not to come home until at least ten.

I glanced at my watch. It was almost eleven. She was usually asleep by this time, but from the sounds of the merriment coming from the living room, she was still wake awake and partying.

I smirked as I soundlessly shut the door, wondering how long it would be before I started getting texts from Aiden, Maddox, and Bentley, asking me where their wives were. I was surprised Van wasn’t standing outside my door demanding I turn Liv over to him right now-the possessive bastard. I laughed at my own thoughts-I couldn’t blame him. Recently married, they were still in that honeymoon phase, and to be honest, I still felt the same way about Becca. I hated giving up our private time for anyone.

I shrugged off my coat and hung it in the closet, planning on quietly making my way to our bedroom and not interrupting whatever was happening in the living room. I would wait for Becca there and not disturb her evening with her friends.

Another burst of laughter stopped my steps.

“Oh, my God, Reid would explode if I bought that.”

There was more laughter.

“Explode in the very best way of course,” Emmy drawled.

My ears perked up at the mention of my name.

From the Author about her Pure Romance inspired story:

I love a story that ends with “…and they lived happily ever after.” The couple’s journey can be sweet or filled with angst—as long as they find their happy. For the longest time, I would share my ideas with friends or on forums. I found these stories grew and their passage to that magical ending became more complex. Those are the stories I now share around the world with readers every day. But how do you keep that spark alive?

I dream up sexy times in my head, but as you can imagine, writing is a solitary job. I often let my fingers find my way to new inspiration and places like Pure Romance. I had heard so many author friends mention the site, so I had to check it out, and fell in love with the products. I’ve been married for more years than I can count on both my hands and feet. I can attest that somedays it is harder to keep the spark hot and Pure Romance goes a long way to keeping the flames burning. The Euforia sleepwear speaks to my personal preferences. The Vega V-Neck Chemise is elegantly understated, yet the emphasis is on comfort. Perfect for shy writers like me. Pure Romance also offers a wonderful selection of bath & body products such as Truly Sexy 7th & a Plum fragrance that I can pamper my friends with. I like to treat them to something that makes them feel sexy. I also love to indulge on these gifts as thank yous for helping me with story feedback.

Once I finish a couple’s story, it is often on to the next pair of voices in my head. Some days I think about former characters and what their lives must be like. I’ve been giving some thought to a very special couple from my Vested Interest series book 4, Reid and Becca. I know Reid would love to see Becca buy out the Pure Romance catalog and help her try everything she purchases. LOL.
