The Sin Circus
Everyone remembers their first trip to the circus–the home of fantasy and dreams. Where the idea that anything is possible meets a creative reality of alluring tricks and amazing acts of defiance. The big top is known for inspiring lust, awe, and happy memories, and now you’ll see it like never before.
Some of today’s hottest romance authors combine the decadent memories of the center ring with all the flavors in erotic fiction in The Sin Circus. Whether it’s with a dominating Ringmaster, a lion tamer’s bratty kittens, or a dark Harlequin King, this show is sure to shock the audience with its dazzling dares and tantalizing tales.
Oh, that sounds fun and now here’s something Sweet and Sticky from Sabrina Garie
The circus abounds with very naughty food. Cotton candy, popcorn, snow-cones, cracker jacks and so much more. In the The Sin Circus, my story “Sweet and Sticky,” uses edibles in tantalizing and sexy ways. You may find some new uses for cotton candy after you read it. 🙂
In addition to serving as sexy props, food is also woven into the main story. The hero, Nick, is a literary agent specializing in cook books and food writers. Here’s a pretty decadent recipe from his most successful, and eccentric, authors. Sweet and sticky, just like the story.
Dorothy Blaine’s Vanilla-iced Cinnamon Buns
- 2 (.25 oz) active dry yeast packages
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 2 cups warm water
- 6 and ½ cups all-purpose flour (this will be divided)
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- ½ cup of sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
Vanilla Icing Ingredients
- 1/3 cup of softened butter
- 3 cups confectioners’ sugar
- 1 and ½ tablespoons of Milk
- 1and ½ teaspoons Vanilla extract
- Dissolve yeast and 1/3 cup sugar in warm water. Best to use a large mixing bowl for this. Then, stir in 2 cups of flour and beat for two minutes, then add in the eggs and oil. Add one half cup at a time, then beat well. Continue to do so, one half cup at a time, until you’ve used all the flour.
- Once the dough is ready, knead it for five minutes on a lightly floured surface. Butter a large bowl (you can use oil if you prefer), add the dough and coat it with the butter (or oil). Cover and let rise. You want it to double in size. This will take about forty minutes.
- While the dough is rising, mix together the cinnamon and the remaining ½ cup of sugar.
- When the dough has doubled, divide it into 12 pieces and roll in the cinnamon sugar then put in a greased baking pan. Cover the pan and let it rise, again about 40 minutes until it doubles yet again.
- Bake for 30 minutes in an oven preheated to 350 degrees F
- Let cool then add the icing.
- Stir all the ingredients (butter, sugar, milk, vanilla) together. Add when the buns are cool.
