It's weekend, and time for more Rainbow Snippets. The Rainbow Snippets group on Facebook asks its members to share six sentence snippets from their work each weekend. Check out the group's Facebook page to read all the snippets and add lots of great books to your TBR. You'll find all sorts of books with the common thread that the main character identifies as LGBTQ+
I have another snippet from The Artist's Masquerade for you today. I've skipped ahead a little from last time. In this snippet, Flavian has found himself required to go with Velia to the royal palace, still in his disguise. And he's definitely caught Cathal's attention.
Flavian froze under his gold gaze, so intense. He found himself staring back at Cathal, helpless to look anywhere except those eyes, and he had no idea why. He clenched his hands into fists hidden by the skirt of his gown. He wanted to look away; he had to look away. He didn’t understand, had never felt a compulsion like it before. It was bizarre andhe didn’t like it and he needed to stop before Cathal peered too closely at him and realized things Flavian didn’t need him to know.
Why was Cathal looking at him anyway?
