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.
I have another snippet from The Prince's Consort for you this weekend. The Prince's Consort, the story of a prince and the commoner who fall in love and fight to be together when some people will do anything—even resort to murder—to keep them apart, was my first published novel back in 2015. It was rereleased in March 2020 by NineStar Press, and I thought I'd celebrate it with a few snippets this month. In this snippet, Prince Philip has surprised Amory by saying he wants to marry him.
“Everyone wants you to marry because you need someone to give you heirs. No one would be happy if you married me.”
“I would.” Philip stepped closer. “Because what I need is the man I love beside me, loving me, supporting me, as I do him, for the rest of our lives.”
“You...” The shock hit him so hard the word came out breathless. “You love me?”
Philip cupped his cheek. “Yes, I love you. Do you love me?”
