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+
For today's snippet, I'm sharing more from The Envoy's Honor, the newest book in my Chronicles of Tournai series, which is now out everywhere. The Envoy's Honor is an adversaries to lovers romance between two men whose devotion to family and country is putting them on opposites sides of a dispute that it will take careful diplomacy to get everyone out of safely. Unwitting attraction complicates matters, of course, and just when they might be getting closer, someone is murdered. But at least they know neither of them could've done it since they were...together...at the time. And there are more dragon shifters in this one!
This snippet picks up directly after last week's, though I might skip ahead a little next time.
“Then this concerns Tournai as well as you, Corentin,” Cathal said. “Not to be cold about it, but we need to protect the interests of the country too.”
“All right, we need to hear them out, see what they want,” Philip said. “I’m tempted to meet them without Corentin but, objections from Corentin aside--and I know you would strenuously object—I don’t know if that course of action would be productive.”
“I doubt they’ll say a word without him there, even if you could convince Corentin to stay away.” Amory smiled at Corentin and then glanced around at the rest of them, all standing tense and ready to jump to Corentin’s defense. “Good luck getting any of our family to stay away.”
