Now on to my personal contribution to this giveaway.

Summer Romance. Well, the circus comes to town during the summer.

So, I’m sharing a short excerpt from my story

With the Greatest of Ease

which was available in The Sin Circus Anthology and which will soon be released on it’s own.

Available April 29, 2014

Available April 29, 2014

Nicco watched her, studied her, actually. She felt like a gazelle under the hungry eye of a lion. Unable to move to protect herself, shivers raced through her, but she couldn’t form a response.
After what seemed an eternity, she managed to break the spell, and turned to Andrei, who wore a bemused look, his own gaze as intent on Nicco as Nicco’s was on her. “I’ll catch up with you later?”
“Sure. His focus remained on Nicco, though he spoke to her. “Find me if you need—anything.” He gave a friendly nod, and then wandered away, but glanced back over his shoulder a few times, that curious expression still on his face.
“Are you with him now?”
She swiveled back around. Franco and Ana had gone inside, leaving the two of them alone under the trailer’s red and white striped awning. “Not really.”
“What does that mean? He seemed pretty possessive.”
“Why do you care?” The man had been gone for ten years. He had no reason to ask these questions.
He frowned. “I don’t. Though I think he’s too young for you.” He stepped toward her, backing her up against the siding of the trailer. “You’re beautiful, Lucia.” His words rasped out on a whisper, as though he couldn’t stop himself from uttering them.
She gulped. “Thank you.”
A dog barked. One of the elephants responded. In the distance, the chatter and shouts of people practicing or getting ready for their evening meal invaded the choked moment.
“Do you know why I’m here?”
“Of course.”
“Is it going to be a problem for you?”
They had three days of practice before the next official show. Three days she’d have to spend under Nicco’s watchful eye, letting him touch her, letting his scent whirl around her. Putting her trust into his hands, literally. But what of her heart? Could she keep that for herself?
She’d have to paste a pretty smile on her face while she hid her feelings. But she couldn’t let herself fall for him, not again. He wasn’t committed to this family or this lifestyle. He was only visiting. She needed to remember that.
He reached up and trailed one finger down the side of her face, his caress feather-soft. Working behind a desk all these years had smoothed out his callouses. She smelled the hint of coffee on his warm breath, as it drifted over her skin and fluttered her bangs.
“Tell me, Lucia, after the show, do you stick around and play in the ring for the guests? Do I have that to look forward to?”

    I’m not very active in the summer. I don’t really like sweating and I try not to do anything that will make me do that. I do like sitting outside on the porch and admiring the night sky though.

    My fav activity is white water kayaking. There’s a great place in CT that lets me use the olympic practice gates. Last time I was there, when I aced the forward gates, my instructor had me to do them going through backwards. That was an interesting challenge, but I did them.
