I’ve joined the Rainbow Snippets group on Facebook. From their description: “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 (no spoilers please!).” Pretty cool, eh? Don’t forget to “Like” my Facebook page and/or my Facebook profile while you’re over there checking out this fantastic group!
I’m continuing with snippets to celebrate the 1-year anniversary of the release of ’Til Death Do Us Part. This one is told from Henry’s 1st-person POV, taken from a scene where Henry and his fellow castaways have hunkered down as best they could to ride out a tropical storm.
“More projectiles smashed through the remains of our walls. I groaned and winced as something hit me in the upper back. The pain radiated through my torso. I felt Garrett shudder, apparently experiencing the same. I held our small tree with one hand, but had the other wrapped around Buddy’s torso. His body quivered in a manner consistent with a child crying. I felt impotent as I rubbed his chest and abdomen. I wanted desperately to soothe his terror, but nothing was likely to do that until the storm abated.”
Henry and Sam Miller-Greene are living the dream. They love their careers — which afford each of them opportunities to travel to exotic locations — they love their home, Sam’s caring family, and each other. They disagree on the subject of adoption, but are fully committed to each other in marriage … ’Til Death Do Us Part.
The dream is shattered when Henry’s plane crashes, and he’s presumed dead. But four people — Henry, two other men, and a child — survive undetected on a remote, small, and insignificant island. Will Sam and Henry’s love be able to survive as well?
Henry fights to endure in harsh conditions, never knowing when disaster will strike. Sam struggles with his loss, but with help moves on with his life. Will Sam be able to put aside his new love when he reunites with Henry?

I feel so bad for him.
That was one of their scarier days on the island. :-/
That would be so scary. How awful for them.
It was quite the ordeal. :-/
So sad. This little snippet makes me want to cheer for their HEA.
Thank you! 🙂 That was the goal—to get readers rooting for them. 💕
This is such a nail-biting scene. Love it <3
Thank you! As you know, it gets worse before it gets better. 🙂
Oh, I know. The entire scene is fantastic, you did a great job with it! <3

It must feel like one awful thing to endure after another. 🙁
True, it wasn’t exactly an island paradise holiday. 😉
Oh, you can really feel his pain at being so powerless. Great snippet!
Thank you! 💗
Poor Henry. Being powerless makes it all the more terrifying.
It sure does. 🌸
That’s one scary situation.
Yep. I sure wouldn’t want to have to face it. :-/
Such a tense, emotional scene.
Thanks! It was a rough night for them. :-/
Fortunately, I’ve never been in a storm as bad as that…
Me neither. And don’t want to in any circumstances, let alone theirs, with little protection. :-/
