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!
