Prometheus Unstitched is a paranormal romance novella. It’s one of my funniest and cleverest pieces thus far and the romance is very steamy.
Here’s the query in its most current incarnation (always a work in process until I get an acceptance):
Cory Blindbarrow, owner of Blindbarrow Crimefighting Couture, loves her work—from tailoring bulletproof fabrics to engineering cleverly concealed weaponry. Kowtowing to the over-sized egos of her superhero clientele, however, brings out her inner curmudgeon.
Her newest client, Theo Richelieu, aka Prometheus Man, is blessed with the ability to see five minutes into the future. Unfortunately, nobody believes him. He’s exactly the type that pushes Cory’s buttons. But he’s also quite talented at engaging (and disengaging) her snaps and zippers too. As maddening as Theo can be, Cory can’t deny the explosive chemistry that shifts her idling libido into overdrive. Her reactions to Theo’s touch make her wonder whether she too might possess a few latent superpowers.
When a sniper targets Cory’s suppliers and colleagues, Theo appoints himself her protector. His know-it-all attitude soon has her ready to tattoo a bullseye on her forehead. If Theo is unable to convince the headstrong couturier she’s the sniper’s next mark, their happily ever after might never make it out of the design phase.
PROMETHEUS UNSTITCHED is a paranormal romance novella, complete at 29,000 words, that parodies superhero tropes with a dash of sex and intrigue.
