This week I’m featuring Cirque du Minuit for Seventeen Sentence Sunday. This is probably among my favorite books I’ve written, in large part because Theo is my dream bad boy. Reckless, sexy, demanding–with a French accent. And of course, the softest heart in the world underneath. Here, he introduces Kelsey to the art of aerial silks.
“This tree is stronger than you can imagine. The silk is strong, I am strong.” He paused to wrap his leg in the silk as he hung beside her. “What about you? Strong enough, Kelsey? Brave enough?”
She resisted the urge to look down, instead keeping her gaze locked on Theo’s darkly animated eyes. “I just need a little time to get used to this before you start scaring me again.”
Theo blinked in innocence. “Scaring you? Moi? I don’t know what you speak of.” He reached out to her, pulling her close, both of them swaying thirty feet up, limbs wrapped in diaphanous silk. “You be a good, brave girl, and I’ll let you come back my place after, eh?”
She always imagined him as dark, threatening, but up close he had light, tiny freckles on the bridge of his nose. His arm tightened around her. His lips were so close she could feel their warmth. “You want, Kel-zee?”
Yes, I know there are eighteen sentences this week. I’m a rulebreaker!
If you’re into demanding, slightly borderline alpha guys and the romance of collaboration, you’d really love this book. Hope you check it out! Click the cover below for a blurb and buy links.
Also…a bit of news while you’re stopping by. I’ll be uploading The Edge of the Earth to the various sales outlets by the end of next week. (Amazon, Barnes and Noble, All Romance ebooks, Smashwords.) The wait is over, Molly Joseph is finally coming. This book was years in the making, and even though it’s vanilla, it’s still by ME, it will still make you squirm and probably cause controversy. Spread the word!
