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 more from The Artist's Masquerade for you today. This snippet follows directly after last week's, continuing the conversation between Flavian and Velia. (I went a bit over six sentences. I'm sorry!)
“Well, I’m trussed up in a gown—”
“And you look lovely in it.”
It was his turn to give her a vicious glare. She didn’t even flinch. “And heeled shoes, which are ridiculous torture contraptions on a normal day and even worse aboard a ship.”
“You’re very graceful on them though. More so than I expected.”
He didn’t think he could glare any harder, but he did try. “And all for a plan that will never work.”
“But it is working. We left Ardunn with no one the wiser, and no one on this ship knows you’re a man. Now sit still.” She returned to the task he had interrupted--applying cosmetics to his flinching face.
