#‎RainbowSnippets‬‬‬, March 3 2018

Rainbow Snippets is a group for LGBTQ+ authors, readers, and bloggers to gather once a week to share six sentences from a work of fiction–a WIP or a finished work or even a 6-sentence book recommendation.

I’ve finished Fidele, my serialized novel! (Link goes to the serial’s main page.) This snippet is from Chapter 4: Malcolm sees Noel for the first time.

He was tall and broad-shouldered, with wide-set eyes that swept over the lounge in a cool, measured way, and a stern set to his features, like someone accustomed to being in command. His dark hair was pushed back from his face, thick, wavy, and longer than was currently fashionable. His clothes fit his body perfectly, from the cuffs of his raincoat to the toes of his Oxfords, and all looked expensive and custom-made. His bearing was military-straight, not an unusual sight in those post-war days, his shoulders a perfect square and his feet planted solidly on the marble floor.

He was the most beautiful man I’d ever seen. Just one look and I wanted him, fervently and fully and without hope of possession.
