Hiya, folks! Hope you're all having a sensational Sunday! My brain is stuck in a circus tent on account of me teaching my Grade 11 drama class a unit on clowning, so I figured today would be the perfect day to share an excerpt from my Mime/Clown wedding story called 'All Action, No Talk'. Clever, isn't it? ;)
Here's the blurb:
Alice Moore is a clown . . . in love with a mime.
Her parents have never approved of her circus-oriented lifestyle and in effort to deter her from wasting her life clowning around, they set her up with family friend, Grant Humphrey. A practical man. A businessman. And the last man on earth she wants to marry, but here she is, marching down the aisle toward him.
Alex Holiday is a mime . . . in love with a clown.
He’s silently followed Alice from venue to venue on the circus circuit, working alongside her, worshiping her in secret. He’s never been able to tell her how he feels . . . until now. When he catches wind of the upcoming wedding, he vows to put a stop to it. But will his objection be too late?
And now, an excerpt!
“You can talk.” She covered her mouth when a giddy laugh escaped.
Clasping the hand that still pressed to his chest, he whispered, “Don’t blow my cover.” She nodded, hypnotized by the color of his eyes from up close—aquamarine with flecks of copper and gold. Like an ocean filled with treasures. “And don’t marry that guy.”
Who knew mimes were so sexy and demanding? Rawwrrrrr! :D Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
