Rainbow snippets (12th March)

And here is this week’s snippet, continuing the vague theme of introducing the supporting cast of Recovery. Here’s the one who keeps trying to steal the book (and my protagonist’s virtue). Here’s Prince Kastrian of the Ala Isles…

Then the doors to the council chamber swung open and a beautiful pirate strode in.
He was so very obviously cut from the same cloth as the thugs on the street that Raif gaped at him for a moment. Of course, what looked garish on the street thugs looked, well, no less garish on this man, but it suited him. His shirt was scarlet, his boots were knee-high black leather, over loose trousers; he wore a brass-studded leather baldric which supported both a long cutlass and a dagger. His shoulders, Raif couldn’t help noticing, were very broad, and his black hair was caught back in a long queue of curls.
So nice of you to join us promptly, Kastrian,” Isla called.

Rainbow Snippets is a wonderful little Facebook group in which writers gather every weekend to post a six-sentence peek at one of their works. All genres are included but the snippets must be from books with a LGBTQIA+ protagonist.

    I definitely see why he’s a scene-stealer! Love this line: “Of course, what looked garish on the street thugs looked, well, no less garish on this man, but it suited him.”

  5. Sounds like Prince Kastrian really fills up the room! My interest is piqued too. 🙂

    Just 6 sentences and I’m DYING to know more about him. (Although I have a forever love for Raif. 🙂 )

    When is this book coming out again? Kinda sorta want it now. ❤
