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.
I’m sharing snippets from In Pain and Blood for a while. The prologue is part of the new additions and stars Tracker. The rewrite is a little light on the romance side and a touch darker in other parts.
This week’s snippet follows on from last week’s where Tracker revealed he knew exactly how people would interpret the scene.

Her hand still clung to the throwing knife he had gifted her, the same one she had plucked from the air during his pursuit. In the scant few days they had travelled together, she begged him to teach her with him remaining unrelenting until the last.
Had she been preparing herself to fight? To die?
Tracker will be back next week with more from In Pain and Blood. In the meantime, check out these other snippets.
