Hello! Come meet two of the carnival’s delicious barkers…
* * *
They were gorgeous, the satin and leather of their barker’s uniforms hugging their svelte bodies. Cory recognized the man with glorious purple hair as the one Jules had met at the gate that morning, dressed for the Mirror Maze. He certainly would have remembered the other man had he’d met him before, his dark skin contrasting deliciously with the vibrant green and blue of his tight outfit.
They swept into the shop, laughing and talking a mile a minute as they went up to the counter, and the room began to buzz with sudden energy. Definitely showmen, preening under the attention. Cory had the sudden urge to watch them kiss, then blushed hotly. Where had that thought come from?

Cory loves the carnival. Even as an adult, the lights and color, flashing rides, popcorn and cotton candy, all hold a special allure for him. Especially this year, when the men seem extraordinarily beautiful and Jules, the barker for the Mirror Maze, ran away with his heart from the moment Cory first saw him in his purple-satin and leather uniform.
For Jules, the carnival is life, the other carnies his family, friends, lovers. He can’t think of anywhere else he’d rather be. But the carnival has a secret that, if found out, could bring an end to their ideal existence. What with falling in love with a local man and a detective dogging their heels about the body found on the hill above the fairgrounds, his perfect life just might be changing, and he has no idea if it is for the better.
