Artist: Rodin

My story, A MAN OF VISION, came out on September 23, in the Ellora's Cavemen Seasons of Seduction, Volume III. Here's a little blurb about it:

For Cristoforo, sculpting marble is his life, but the price of creation is a libido that rides him like a demon. When he discovers his sculpting days are numbered, he hires a mistress to satisfy him night and day.

Modern-day courtesan Delphine arrives at his villa prepared for the rigors of being on call 24/7. What she isn’t prepared for, however, is the intensity of her body’s response to Cristoforo. When she learns what is driving him so ruthlessly, she wonders if she can protect her heart…or if it’s already too late.


In the spirit of that, I'm featuring some sculpture. This is work by Rodin, the man who is most famous for his "Thinker" sculpture. You know the one. It's a guy sitting with his forehead resting on his fist. This piece, "The Kiss," is much more beautiful and moving. The passion is so immediate. I can see the man holding back, but feel that at any moment, he's going to let go and grab her. I love this piece and I really wish I could walk around it to see the back.

Does this sculpture make you yearn for a kiss?

I tried to order Seasons of Seduction from Amazon today and it wasn't available or listed. GRRR.
