For today's snippet, I have the first several lines of The Envoy's Honor, the most recent book in the Chronicles of Tournai series. This book is an adversaries to lovers romance between Griffen, the brother of an earl who is trying to protect his family, and Kirill, an envoy from a far-off land who is trying to protect his people. Plus a murder, some intrigue, family drama, and more dragon shifters.
Griffen’s day had been utterly normal--boring, even--until the dragons arrived.
The only mildly interesting thing that had happened was Bastien for once being convinced to attend a family dinner at the palace. Griffen didn’t delude himself into thinking his persuasion and prodding had anything to do with his older brother’s decision. No, Philip’s order had gotten Bastien and Corentin, the man he would soon marry, here. The prince rarely ordered his family about--and never in this type of situation, so Philip’s edict had probably been at least half joking--but Bastien was too dutiful to ignore it, despite his preference to be something of a hermit.
