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+
Today, I'm sharing a snippet from The Sorcerer's Guardian. In this book, an arrogant sorcerer and a loyal guard captain are sent on an important mission for the crown. They snark and snap at each other as they tumble into love (and of course, at one point, there's only one bed...). Loriot and Savarin have known each other for years at the beginning of this story, but I thought I would share a snippet of Loriot remembering his first impressions of Savarin.
Loriot took the opportunity to study Savarin surreptitiously.
Savarin was a handsome man, far too handsome, really. When Loriot had seen him for the first time years ago, he hadn’t quite been able to believe the man was real, with his near-perfect features and tall, lean frame. Savarin’s aloofness and arrogance had convinced him otherwise. As always, Savarin was dressed well and fashionably, but Loriot was glad to see his clothing was also practical for travel. He didn’t think he had ever seen Savarin less than perfectly attired in anything except the more formal clothes appropriate for the palace or the city, in rich silks and velvets all in saturated colors and excellent cuts, certainly from the best tailors in Jumelle.
