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+.
This weekend, I'm sharing a snippet from The Sorcerer's Guardian, my opposites attract, arrogant sorcerer and loyal guard captain thrown together on a mission for the prince (and by the way, there's only one room left at the inn with only one bed) romance. This snippet comes from very early on in the book. Loriot's sister, who is a writer, is trying to get him to tell her about the sorcerer Savarin so she can use the information in a book.
But wait,” she called after him as he walked toward the door. “You must know something else about Master Savarin.”
“I really don’t.” He didn’t turn.
“Is he handsome?”
Savarin’s image filled his mind—his height and broad shoulders, perfectly carved features, blond hair that looked as if it would be soft under his hands. His stride hitched, but he shook the image away and ignored Joceline calling after him. Perhaps she would forget the idea entirely if he didn’t encourage her.
He doubted it, but he could hope. The idea of Savarin as a character in a book on the shelf of a bookshop made him cringe.
