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 Scholar's Heart. I seem to have started on a theme of first meetings, but Etan and Tristan, the main characters of this estranged friends to lovers story, met long before this book started. So, I thought I would share when Tristan first meets his newborn daughter.
She made a little snuffling sound, and he reflexively looked down. His first look at his daughter’s face...and he tumbled headlong into love.
She was perfect, from the wispy pale hair on her head to her delicate little fingers that came into view as the blanket wrapping her loosened. He walked carefully to the rocking chair near the hearth, the chair Dariela had specifically designed, and sat, careful not to wake the baby. He had no idea what to do with a baby, no idea how to raise a daughter, but sitting here, staring down at her sweet little face, he vowed he would learn anything he needed to know. Anything to keep her safe, healthy, and happy.
