I started this WIP back in NaNoWriMo of 2018 and the writing was so tough for me. It was a busy month, I got sick, and there was no energy for drafting something branch new. It made me decide this circus story of mine wasn’t worth the time of day. Now, with some time and distance I’m falling back in love with LEAP OF FAITH and I’m especially excited to share the blurb I wrote for the site.
You can’t run away with the circus if it’s where you’re from…
Zora Novak isn’t ready to return to her family’s flying trapeze act, but out of work and needing the capital to open her own gym, she doesn’t see another option. She spent her childhood on and off a trapeze bar, but after her brother fell to his death during an act, the thought of getting in the ring again leaves her cold. To make matters worse, her ex-boyfriend is now managing Circo Parisi, and it’s clear he’s noticed her fear of heights.
Aiden wants to keep the floundering circus where they grew up afloat, and with his mother too
injured to perform and profits falling, he doesn’t need the distraction of Zora in his life. He’d avoid her, and the inconvenient feelings she stirs in him, but it seems they need each other for a new act.
Close quarters under the big top remind Aiden and Zora that, as teens, there was real affection between them. Ten years have passed, but the attraction remains. With Zora bent on leaving again, and Aiden already burned from the last time she took off, it will be the show of a lifetime pretending they aren’t falling (back) in love.
