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 is week's snippet is more from The Spymaster's Secret and continues the scene from last week's. Things were going a bit too well for Alexander maybe...
It wouldn’t take much for him to be in Marcus’s arms. So little space separated them, and if Marcus pulled just a little on Alexander’s wrist, he would move with the cue, allowing himself to be drawn into Marcus’sarms, into a kiss.
Marcus’s eyes darkened. Did he see what Alexander was thinking?Did he want it too?
Alexander took a chance, swaying closer. Marcus seemed to lean toward him for an instant, but then he frowned. His eyes went blank, all traces of the desire there a moment ago gone as if they’d never been, andhe drew back. Alexander felt the cold of the wind again, and he forced his own expression back under control, forced away anything that wouldmake him too vulnerable, if it wasn’t already too late.
