Guest blog: The heartbreak of unrequited love
By Cara Bristol
Have you ever secretly loved someone, but didn’t dare tell him/her?
During my teenage years, I crushed on a number of guys in secret. In a few cases, the infatuation lasted for a couple of years. In a couple instances, we were “just friends,” but I harbored a secret hope. In other cases, I hardly knew the guy, but admired him from afar.
Once, after college, I did put myself out there and asked a guy I liked to lunch. He said yes – then later had his administrative assistant call and cancel. Ouch.
I’m married now, and thankfully, I don’t have to date anymore. Lol.
The heroine of Destiny’s Chance knows the heartbreak of unrequited love. She has crushed on Chance Everett for as long as she’s known him. She has good reason for not opening up about the way she feels, so she has resigned herself to loving him from afar.
And then a tragic accident brings them together and she has the “chance of the lifetime” to make him hers. But they both harbor secrets that might bring their new relationship to an abrupt end.
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.

Thanks, SJ for hosting me — and for picking this particular blog about unrequited love. Nice to have a change. The psychic one seemed to be the one everyone else went for.
You’re welcome! It was hard picking. 🙂 But on top of everything she had to contend with, she was still just a girl wanting this guy to love her. I remember that theme well from the story. ❤ Plus, it was cool to read your personal experiences.
Great post. Unrequited love makes the best stories! I used to do the most ridiculous things to get my math tutor’s attention when I was in high school (he was in med school). I was always wearing provocative clothes to my tutoring sessions and dropping my pencil so I could show off my “assets” while picking it up. He never seemed to notice, but just about the time I was about to graduate he asked me out. Too bad I’d already moved on. The timing sucked because I adored him for a long time. Lol.
Aw. He moved a little too late. You’re so right, unrequited love does make the best stories because we’ve all been there and that feeling comes right back to us.
Fun post and so true! Ah, our youth and unrequited love!
I know! ❤ Thanks for stopping by, Pauline.
He was probably waiting until you weren’t his student anymore.
