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.

I've been wallowing in the beginning of autumn, which is my favorite time of year, and I remembered this little snippet of The Dragon's Devotion. It seemed appropriate to share, considering my frame of mind. In The Dragon's Devotion, Bastien is an earl with far too much on his shoulders, including new revelations about his parents' death years ago. His quest to find the truth will bring him into unexpected danger (and see him unexpectedly falling in love with dragon shifter Corentin)...and take him away from the home he loves during the season he loves.
Bastien propped himself up on his arms in the open window of his study and took a long, deep breath. Fresh air filled his lungs, fragrant with grass and horse and a hint of woodsmoke—the familiar scents of home. He liked this time of year, this shift of season when the trees changed color and the estate was awash with gold and red, before the weather turned colder and the gray of winter set in.
He didn’t want to leave, didn’t want to miss all that color, but he likely would this year. It was absurd to feel so wrong about leaving, especially for so short a time. Just a trip to Jumelle for a month, maybe two. It wasn’t as if he would never return.
