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+
Today, I'm sharing a snippet from The Envoy's Honor. This story puts Griffen, who is trying to protect his family, at odds with dragon shifter Kirill, who is trying to protect his people. Their attraction to each other doesn't make anything easier. Nor does the murder they decide they're going to have to look into together. Here is Kirill's first sight of (and reaction to) Griffen.
Another man who entered the room behind them with Ligeia on his arm wasn’t quite so emotionless. Something smoldered in his eyes, some emotion hastily banked.
But that wasn’t what made Kirill utterly freeze where he stood.
The man did that on his own.
He was watching Kirill, stare intense out of rich brown eyes. His bronze hair was thick and wavy, framing an incredibly handsome face of chiseled features. Kirill gritted his teeth. He’d never let it happen before and he could not afford to get turned around by a handsome face now of all times. He had no time for an affair on this trip and certainly not with someone connected with the royal palace--and to Corentin, too,considering this man’s close resemblance to the earl Corentin was going to marry.
