#8Sunday #SnippetSunday: Apr 13, 2014




weekend_writing_warriorsveteransbadge_4Each 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.


You can read all of my past snippets here:  ALL my snippets.

Please jump back to the main site for  Weekend Writing Warriors and visit  Snippet Sunday on Facebook to see the many other authors bringing you a glance into their worlds for this week.

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

    Great description — the scene is very clear.

  2. Patricia Kiyono

    I like how she’s trying to deny her interest. But I had trouble visualizing her looking up at someone if that person is behind her. Was she looking up at someone else?

    Nice bit about the ‘fresh from the shower’. It gives it more of a powerful edge than your typical “clean as a whistle”. From that last word, I take she’s not comfortable with him filling in for Franco. Great excerpt!

  4. Millie Burns

    Oh boy…sounds like a little love triangle forming.

  5. veronicascott

    Very promising for a lot of future developments. I love the premise of the anthology! Excellent excerpt!

    I like your description: fresh from the shower good. Congratulations on the anthology. I love the title of your story, as well as the title of the book.
