Each week authors from all over and writing in all genres bring you snippets from their work. It could be a work in progress or a completed piece. It could be published or not. But it’s only 8 sentences.
Today, I’ve decided to share a snippet from an anthology that I’m in, which is coming out at the end of this month. Eight authors, eight erotic stories, all based around one very unique circus.
My story, With the Greatest of Ease, is about one of the troupe’s trapeze artists, Lucia Palagrino, and her long ago partner Nicco Sarducci, who left the circus trying to get away from the family business. But now he’s back.
Lucia is currently hiding in the shadows near her trailing, watching the welcome Nicco is receiving from his brother.
Note: in the interest of keeping to eight sentences, and still set the scene for you, I’ve take liberty with the punctuation and a few words to join a couple of the sentences together.
“Well, well, what’s he doing here?”
Lucia glanced up at Andrei Danescu as he pressed his muscled chest tight to her back—he smelled fresh from the shower good. She’d heard him coming up behind her and wished, once again, she could feel the same for him that she suspected he did for her as he snaked his arms around her waist and rested his chin on her shoulder—she angled a look in his direction and smiled, but felt the tightness in her cheeks. “He’s filling in until Franco’s wrist is healed.”
“And how do you feel about that?”
She shrugged. “No big deal.” Liar.

I’m looking forward to catching up with everybody. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
