I have something from The Dragon's Devotion for you this weekend because The Dragon's Devotion is on sale and part of a BookFunnel Queer Halloween promo this week. The Dragon's Devotion is the story of Corentin, a scholar trying to protect the most important secret of his people—the magic that allows them to change into dragons—and Bastien, an earl who has just learned that the accident that killed his parents might have been murder. As Bastien tries to find the truth, he is drawn further and further into danger, making Corentin decide if he can reveal his people's secret to save the man he loves. In this scene earlier on in their acquaintance, Bastien and Corentin have literally collided with each other in the rain.
Bastien’s expression had gone quizzical. “You’re staring. What are you thinking about?”
A dangerous question, but Corentin decided to answer honestly and see what Bastien did. “Kissing you in the rain.”
“You asked what I was thinking about. I was thinking about kissing you in the rain. Or anywhere. I’m not enjoying this rain, and I’d rather not be out in it for much longer, but it might be worth it to kiss you.” His fingers itched to reach out, to drift over Bastien’s cheek, to curve around his neck and tug him closer.
