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 this weekend. I've skipped ahead a bit from my previous snippet to where Cathal and Flavian meet for the first time. Cathal, his father, and his cousin the princess have gone to meet Flavian's ship because Cathal is meant to marry Flavian's friend Velia. Flavian, in disguise, is introduced to him as Flavia, Velia's companion.
Flavian nearly jumped to find himself the focus of Lord Cathal’sunusual gold eyes. Flavian had been so engrossed in studying the man that he must have missed the formal introductions making it around to him.
“Lady Flavia.” Cathal’s voice was deep and smooth, and Flavian shivered just hearing it. But the shiver was nothing compared to the heat flaring inside him when Cathal took his hand to bow over it. The heat rushed through his body and left him biting back a gasp. No. Not good. He could not be attracted to Cathal of all men.
