I'm sharing another snippet from A Harmony of Fire and Earth this week and also giving you the first look at the cover, designed by the fantastic Natasha Snow! This snippet comes after the last snippet I shared and answers the question of whether Rhys kisses Gaz.
“Do you not want me to kiss you? If so, just say, and I’ll never mention it again.” He silently recited every prayer he knew that Gaz wouldn’t say it.
“It isn’t that I don’t want you to. It’s just—”
Rhys didn’t let Gaz finish, and maybe that was wrong. He didn’t even consciously make the decision to close the distance—only a step or two—between them and press his lips to Gaz’s. It was a whisper of a kiss at first, light and soft. But Rhys was stunned to be kissing Gaz after all this time. Just that fact was glorious.
Gaz’s lips were soft and still under his. Then he made a little noise and stepped into Rhys, bent just a bit, and the kiss became something more.
