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.

Rainbow Snippets October 28

Hello again! It’s been a while. I’ve returned to WordPress as my website host and to mark the occasion I’m participating in Rainbow Snippets.

My serialized novel, Fidele, is still ongoing. (The link goes to the index page for the story so far.) This snippet is from the latest update, chapter 27, The Empty House.

“Malcolm,” he said hesitantly, “I … lured you here under false pretenses.”

To be honest, I had suspected as much from the moment he parked the Jaguar. “Oh?” I said in my most innocent, trusting tone.

“My previous tenant moved out last week,” he said, “and my new tenant doesn’t move in until the first of February. There aren’t any repairs that need to be done — just a few things cleaned here and there, or washed and put away, at most. I brought you here so … we could be alone.”
