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!
In honor of the release of the Vows Series Box Set, I’m going with another snippet from To Love and To Cherish (the final story in the set). The box set is up exclusively at Amazon. With the collection (2 novels, a novelette, and a short story) coming in at over 147,000 words, it’s a steal at only $6.99! (PSSSST…Watch for a very special Kindle Select deal for this collection on Monday, July 17th)
This snippet is unrelated to last week’s racy excerpt (continuing would have been a tad bit too steamy for a blog post). It picks up just a little later in the story when Nash comes home to face his roommates (Harley and Oliver), and he’s scrabbling to find a way to tell them about the arrangement he’s just made with Emmitt (a marriage of convenience). He’s afraid of what their reaction might be so he’s trying to head that off. This is told from Nash’s 3rd-person POV:
“I had this whole conversation with Angela the other day,” Nash said. “About how quickly we’d known in our hearts that a relationship ultimately wouldn’t work, but stuck it out anyway because we’d hope things would work out. But when we’d met someone who was a great match for us, we’d known that just as fast. Admit it, you know right now that you’re going to marry Oliver in the end. You’re just holding out for bullshit reasons.”
“I don’t know that I’d call them bullshit reasons,” Harley blustered.
“What would you call them?” Oliver asked.
Harley pointed a finger at him. “Don’t put this all on me. You’re just as capable of asking as I am.”
