#8Sunday #SnippetSunday: May 11, 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.

Are any of you going to RT this week?  I AM!  If you see me, please don’t be shy.  Stop me and say Hi!!! I’m not signing or anything this year, but am taking it all in, and I’m really looking forward to my first RT experience, so I hope to meet some of you!

I’m sharing another snippet from an anthology that I’m in. 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.

The last few snippets were of Lucia hiding in the shadows near her trailing with Andrei, watching the welcome Nicco is receiving from his brother. I’ve jumped ahead a little here to where she and Andrei have walked over to greet Nicco.  Nicco is the one speaking below.  I’ve taken liberty with the punctuation to fit the eight sentences.



Oh that voice-that deep smooth as chocolate voice that flowed over her like a piece of fruit dipped into a fondue pot. It still had the power to melt her, damn it.

The intensity of his gaze lit the spark that had been smoldering for years. Heat fanned and rushed through her. Tingles of awareness broke out all over her body. She fought the urge to cross her arms over her chest. His hooded gaze dipped there anyway, and his right brow lifted in a cocky quirk.


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!  AND I really hope to see some of you in New Orleans!
