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+
Happy Pride Month, everyone! Today, I'm sharing the first lines from The Dragon's Devotion. Corentin is a scholar with a secret (he can turn into a dragon); Bastien is an earl who takes too much on himself. When he learns his parents' deaths were likely murder not the accident they were long thought to be, Bastien decides to find out what happened to them himself—only he doesn't expect the danger he'll find himself in, or that Corentin will have to choose whether to reveal his secret to save the man he's fallen in love with.
In the privacy of his small office, Corentin circled his neck and rolled his bare shoulders and back, trying to loosen the stiffness there—impossible because his muscles weren’t really stiff. But he did it anyway. It was just that he hadn’t changed and stretched his wings in far too long. Whether real or imagined, it had always been this way if he didn’t use his Talent regularly. Only how was he to accomplish that in this place?
There wasn’t anywhere in the capital city where he could change unseen, and few places close to Jumelle where a large dragon would go unnoticed.
