The renaissance faire is filled with characters and romance, 
but will it end in storybook love?

“Who said anything about a relationship?” he said, standing up so he could tower over her again. “I’m just trying to have a little fun. You know, fun?”

If he’d been an animal, she was sure he’d have had hair raised on the back of his neck, he seemed so angry, and it struck her painfully. She hadn’t wanted to anger him or hurt him. She turned away from him and closed her eyes to tamp down the tears she knew would come if she let them. She crossed her arms over her chest, to hold in the pain. Being tired made her much too vulnerable.
“Yes,” she finally said. “I know about fun. Life isn’t always fun, though.”

“Princess.” His voice was soft, tender. “I won’t hurt you. It’s not in my plan.”

Despite herself, she felt the shivers of desire race down from her shoulders, down her arms and legs, and back up to that secret, soft place at her core. She bowed her head and gritted her teeth, hoping for the feeling to go away.
“And what is your plan, Gage?”

“It’s a simple plan. I want you to feel good. I want to feel good, too.”

Thanks for having me here at the Plotting Princesses!

I loved setting this story in the Renaissance Faire, a place of magic. A lot of work goes on behind the scenes for the show to go on as it does, but I love the jousting and the play-acting and the amazing costumes and people in character. It seemed like the perfect place to set my novel.

Welcome, Susabelle. Your story sounds delightful. Love your answers above also. We could almost be twins. Ha. About as close to stilettos as I get is my current heroine who loves them. Me, I'm a flip flop, Mary Ann sorta gal.

Susabelle--Someone else who likes A Walk in the Clouds!! Hi ;)I want so much to attend a Renaissance Faire. I always forget to check out when the one is that's only four hours from me. By the time I realize it's about time, it's over! Best of luck with your book.

Susabelle, thanks for joining the Princesses today. I love the Ren Faires. I've been to several, though i didn't dress up, just went to see all the activities and meander through the multitude of booths. The jousting is so much fun.

I'd never considered setting a book there, though. Great idea! Wishing you many sales.

Great idea for a setting, Susabelle! Haven't been to the Faire in years. I guess I'm due to go back.

Hi Susabelle! Thank you for stopping by the PP blog! I love the idea of setting your story at the Ren Faire! While I've gone, I've never dressed up, but it's fun to walk around and see the different characters. Best wishes for many sales!!!
