Cara Bristol's Real-life Paranormal “woo-woo” moment

I started my writing career as a reporter, starting out in the “lifestyle” section of a newspaper. I was in my mid 20s and was hoping to meet my Mr. Right. I was doing a lifestyle piece on the secrets people confess to their hairdressers. While interviewing one hairdresser, she mentioned that she had psychic abilities. That she “knows” things.

Well, I didn’t believe in psychics, but I had to ask, “What do you know about me?” I didn’t ask or say anything about my love life.

She said I would meet a man, and it would have something to do with the number six. She didn’t know what, but a six was involved.

Okay, fine.

Fast forward a couple of years. I forgot about the “psychic” hairdresser. My 10th high school reunion was coming up, and I vowed I would have a date! At the time, I had gone out with one guy several times already, but I didn’t feel comfortable asking him to the reunion. For some reason, I didn’t want him there. I mulled over my shortlist of male friends and acquaintances I could ask to the reunion and decided to ask a fireman I knew. He said yes, we started dating, and I ended up marrying him.
The date of my high school reunion was August 6.


My latest release, Destiny’s Chance, is an erotic paranormal, not paranormal like shifters and vamps, but woo-woo paranormal. Through a tragic act of fate, Destiny gets the man of her dreams, but there is a high price to pay for that gift. Her psychic sister Laura, a secondary character, is there to help her through it.

Have you ever had a psychic experience or visited one who told you something interesting?

Destiny’s Chance by Cara Bristol

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.

Available on Amazon & Kindle Unlimited

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.

  1. Thanks so much for hosting me today.

  2. A friend of mine was dating a real nice woman, only she went to a psychic who warned her the guy would dump her for a blonde. She grew paranoid of all blondes, and their relationship stated to crumble. Then he started dating one of my blonde friends. I assured his original girlfriend they wouldn't be getting married. And true enough they didnt, but then he met another blonde and she was perfect for him and they married and are still married. I often ponder if the pyschic had seen this, or if she caused the rift that set him looking for a 'saner' wife.

  3. That is interesting. I don't believe in psychics, but I find the idea fascinating. It makes me wonder sometimes. What if? Interesting coincidences!
