Rainbow Snippets is a Facebook group for LGBTQ+ authors, readers, and bloggers to gather once a week and share six sentences from a work of fiction–a WIP or a finished work or even a 6-sentence book recommendation.
To Poison a Prince releases at the end of the month. I’ll be posting bits of Hamish and Darshan’s story for at least until then…
For those of you who are new or catching up… Darshan and Hamish are a pair of thirty-something princes from two vastly different lands. Their tale starts with them travelling through the ginormous Udynea Empire that Darshan is from on their way to the capital. This snippet follows from last week’s where the elven man announcing their arrival is struggling with what title to give Hamish.
Hamish’s eyes had adjusted to the bright light by the time they were to descend the stairs. He laid a hand on Darshan’s proffered arm, steadfastly ignoring the heat flaring in his cheeks. It had taken some time for him to stop blushing whenever Darshan introduced him, but this was different. Such gestures had a certain hierarchy that had been absent in their travels. But then, much of the journey from his homeland had taken them through small villages and towns. All places where those of the Crystal Court were unlikely to be found.
And now? They mingled at the foot of the stairs like sharks waiting for them to enter the water.
And there you have it. I’ll be back next weekend to share more of these two adorkable twits. In the meantime, check out these other snippets.
