RAINBOW SNIPPETS – Change of Plans – March 20-21, 2021

Have you discovered the Rainbow Snippets group on Facebook yet? I’ve been negligent lately, but it’s time I got back into it. Maybe it’ll help motivate me to stay active working on this WiP!

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!

This week I’m snipping from Change of Plans, a novella-in-progress following The Contingency Plan and The Best-Laid Plans.

These are the opening lines, so no context is needed.

From Efren’s 3rd-person POV. This week’s snippet:

Change of Plans - Chapter 1 - Snippet 1

(Don’t worry, I won’t try to make a living as an artist.)

Chapter 1: Forget-Me-Not

Efren, the crown prince of Zioneven, blinked himself fully awake and studied the soft curls of beautiful strawberry blond hair haloing the head of the young man slumbering in his arms. Seemed like Efren should have a headache if he’d drunk enough spirits to forget bringing this one home to his bed.

But his head was clear, so his personal servant, Dru, must have snuck the man in after Efren had fallen asleep. Odd that he hadn’t woken up, but his subconscious must have known he was safe.

Heat swirled through Efren’s bloodstream as his gaze traveled the length of that lithe body. A lovely surprise to wake up to. He would have to give Dru a bonus.

In case you missed the beginning of Marcelo and Efren’s relationship—or perhaps I should say their first time around—here are some handy links:

The Contingency Plan

A sheltered prince.
A sudden death.
An unexpected choice.
How will Prince Marcelo react
to discovering he’s…
The Contingency Plan?

A death that wasn’t
what it seemed.
A kidnapping that isn’t
what it seems.
Time is running out.
