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!
I've skipped ahead just a little from last week's snippet (though this still takes place that same night) to introduce Kirill, one of people sent by the king of Ivria to find Corentin.
Kirill didn’t like how the evening was turning out—he didn’t like how this entire enterprise was turning out, and they were still at the beginning of it. He’d been reluctant to leave Ivria but, of course, he would never refuse his king. And something had to be done about Corentin. Explanations needed to be made and apologies sincerely given. It would be King Lysander’s decision if, once received, those things were sufficient.
