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+
For today's snippet, I'm sharing more from The Envoy's Honor, the newest book in my Chronicles of Tournai series, which is now out everywhere. The Envoy's Honor is an adversaries to lovers romance between two men whose devotion to family and country is putting them on opposites sides of a dispute that it will take careful diplomacy to get everyone out of safely. Unwitting attraction complicates matters, of course, and just when they might be getting closer, someone is murdered. But at least they know neither of them could've done it since they were...together...at the time. And there are more dragon shifters in this one!
I'm picking up directly after last week's snippet.
“Alexander,” Faelen said sharply but quietly. “It’s not your story to tell.”
“I’m well aware of that. But someone has to, and we don’t have all night.” Alexander’s words should’ve sounded sharp, but they didn’t. Marcus put a hand on his shoulder.
“Yes, thank you, Alexander,” Philip said dryly. “I’m willing to let them wait for us, but I don’t think it’s prudent to keep them waiting too long. So as much as the story isn’t Alexander’s to tell, someone has to.”
“What do the rumors of the dragon have to do with Corentin?” Marcus asked, perhaps assuming answering questions would be easier than telling a story.
Corentin took a breath. “Because I’m the dragon."
