When I Smell Sheep first asked me to contribute a guest posting I was intimidated. I mean they’re one of the leading websites in the entire free world. And they’re best known for their coverage of romance novels—a genre I hardly know. Still, I thought I’d give it my best shot. I may not read much romance but I do see a ton of the book covers. Shirtless men with perfect abs and chiseled chests. Oh, and there is one other commonality. I decided to concentrate on that for my own story but because I’m such a novice, I’m asking for your help filling in the blanks.

(Story of a Romance Novel Model)
By Gregory L. Hall

Cindy always thought of herself as a strong, independent and (adjective) woman. Sure, she may not be as (adjective) as she was in her college years, but now at thirty, no man could deny her sassy attitude and (other phrase for ‘sexy curves’). Moving to (favorite city) was a major decision but she was never one to shy away from a (noun).

On her first day she immediately sought out expensive shoe stores. Because ladies love shoes like a crack addict loves (word that rhymes with ‘snack’). She found a place called Orange Is the New (rhyme with ‘orange’). And inside she found the most gorgeous (adjective) (bonus adjective) shoe salesman EVER. The second she stared into his (favorite part of the human anatomy) she was lost in steamy fantasy.

“Hello. My name is Derek. How can I serve you today?” his deep velvety voice said.

“Hi! I’m Cindy. I’d love to put my (noun) in your (nouns).”

He flashed a grin that made her heart (verb). “I think I can help you with that. From a quick glance I’m guessing the size of your (noun) is rather petite.”

Derek guided Cindy to a nearby chair and sat her down. He knelt before her, gently cupped the back of her calf and stretched her leg out until it almost touched his (anything but ‘nose’ because that’s gross in any novel). Something about him was familiar. She knew him. But how could that be? She had just moved to the city, as was mentioned in the first paragraph if you were paying attention.

Her leg slipped from his grasp and her toes caught his partially unbuttoned shirt, tearing it all the way open. He stood up and backed away, giving her full view of his (adjective) chest and (if you were honest you’d put ‘air-brushed’) six-pack abs.

“How embarrassing! I’m almost shirtless. Although this is completely random and accidental, you must be so offended!”

He put a shoebox across his face to hide his shame--- and that was all Cindy needed. With no head, she knew exactly who he was. The perfect man on the cover of her favorite romance novels. She read them all—(favorite writer), (favorite writer), (favorite writer) and (Gregory L. Hall). Derek was the fantasy lover on each and every book. He was even (adjective- er) in person.

“I don’t want to be forward,” she said with a sexy purr. “But you’re a male model, aren’t you? I’m your (adjective) fan.”

Derek lowered the shoebox and stood shocked. “You know my work? Well, not really my work. I only do it to put myself through (occupation) school.”

“You want to be a (noun)? Just when I thought you couldn’t be more perfect.” Cindy was glowing like a (noun) but didn’t hide it. “How about you slide that shoe back on my (body part) and let me take you to lunch.”

“I’d like that.” he said as he tore the rest of the shirt from his (adjective) torso. “You make me hungry. Hungry for (noun).”

Although they had to find a place that didn’t enforce the ‘No Shirt, No (noun), No Service’ rule, Cindy didn’t care. She was with her fantasy man and he was with her. She led him to a hot dog stand she passed when she was walking to his store. He had a diet soda water and a plate of lettuce to keep his (noun) so buff. As the soon-to-be recipient of his buffitude, Cindy had no such restraint. She ordered a (favorite number of inches) long hot dog.

There’s no need to go into detail but yes, you know how Cindy’s fairy tale romance ended. Derek came back to her apartment where they spent the rest of the day (verbing), (verbing), (verbing), (verbing), (verbing), (verbing), (verbing), (verbing), (verbing), (verbing), (verbing), (verbing), took a brief break and then went back to (verbing), (verbing) and (verbing) until the next morn.

Rolling over in her bed, Derek stared into her (adjective or number) eyes. “I think I’ve fallen in love with you, Cindy.”

“I hope so, you gorgeous (bonus adjective) man-sickle.” she whispered back to him as she kissed the tip of his perfect (here you can use ‘nose’). She held up a pair of pink suede gold metallic ankle boots. “I stole these from your store. Because as any real woman knows, it’s always about the shoes.”
