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+
This week, I have another snippet from The Prince's Consort, which is back out in the world now. Yay! This snippet follows immediately after last week's, which you can find here. It's more that six sentences—sorry!—but I thought it was necessary. Amory's father, Arnau, continues to be horrible in this one. Philip speaks first.
“I don’t understand, Master Arnau. What are you offering?”
Oh, yes, his expression was definitely smug. “I only hoped you might like to get to know Amory better, Your Highness. You are both like-minded men, and Amory hasn’t known any others. I thought you might get along well, if you spent an evening, or a night, getting acquainted.”
Was Arnau really...? Arnau’s expression wasn’t just smug, it wasknowing, somehow, and slimy. He was. Arnau was offering his son’s virginity, or at least a night with Amory in Philip’s bed, in exchange forhis allowing them extra time to work on the commission. His stomach churned with a sick mixture of horror and disgust. How could a father do such a thing? For all intents sell his child for his own gain.
