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 today. This snippet follows immediately after last week's (and it's a little long again—I'm sorry I keep doing this!). We're in Philip's head as he reacts to the offer Amory's father made.
One glance at Amory’s stricken expression told him Amory had no part in Arnau’s plan. The horror and embarrassment in those big eyes ignited a fire inside Philip. He opened his mouth to yell, to give Arnau the scare of his life before sending him on his way. After canceling the order that brought them there and assuring Arnau the royal family would never go to him for glasswork again.
But then he looked at Amory. He didn’t know the man at all, but there was something about him...and he didn’t think it was only Amory’s beauty. Something told him maybe Amory could be a friend at least, if not a lover. He wanted to trust the feeling, ached to be right. But even if he imagined whatever potential he thought was there, no one deserved to be treated the way Arnau was treating Amory.
He couldn’t yell and send them away. Couldn’t send Amory away with them.
