Weekend Writing Warriors #17!

Hello there and happy Sunday, my friends! I probably won't be around much today because my one and only brother's wedding was yesterday! I'm typing this four days ahead of schedule, by the way. So I can only guess that I had an amazing time, and that I was the life of the party, and that I drank champagne irresponsibly. Since I'm in a wedding mood, here's more of my story, 'All Action, No Talk', from The Wedding Day Collection!

Through layers of clothing, she could feel his heart beating. “I can feel you.”
The word washed over her in a rush. For a moment, she doubted whether she’d actually heard it. Her eyes flashed to his when his chest stopped rising against her palm. “Did you, uh….”
Red clung to the tips of his ears and the apples of his cheeks.

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?

My magnificent mime and my charming clown can be yours beginning the week of June 9th! Mark your calendars, folks! :) Thanks so much for coming out and be sure to visit the other Weekend Writing Warriors!

  3. He speaks! That was a very sweet moment. Nice job conveying the feeling of that in your snippet.

  4. I LOVE this story. I can see the hero blushing....awwww! Congratulations to your brother and his bride! I hope you all had fun :-)

  5. Finally! His first word! And it was yes! Kinda too bad she didn't ask a different question...

  6. Wooot! Love this and you! Cannot wait!

  7. Beautiful excerpt! I love the description and the emotion that is in this snippet!

  8. Wow he is talking. I like how you used the colors.

  9. A smashing excerpt there. I love this story's concept.

  10. Okay, I admit that this is the first of yours I've read. (I'm usually blog-hopping in the living room, so avoid the ones with a warning in case my mom picks that moment to glance at my screen), but I take it that's the first time he ever actually spoke to her? Very cute snippet.

  11. "Yes" is a good first word. Hopeful. But then he freezes! Poor guy...
