Welcome to my last Rainbow Snippet of 2018. The above picture pretty much sums up how my festive period is panning out. I am knee deep in cheese products right now, with no end in sight.
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!). To see what others are sharing this week click here.
My snippet this week comes from my recent Rainbow Advent Calendar release: A Frosty Tail. This story is still available free from Smashwords. I’m trying to put it on Amazon, but that may not happen until New Year.
First take a look at the gorgeous cover, designed by Roe Horvat, and read the blurb.
When professional gardener, Liam Walton, falls and hits his head on his way home from work one cold and frosty winter’s night, he is rescued by a beautiful yet mysterious young man with white hair, icy blue eyes and very cold hands.
This story contains scenes of an adult nature involving physical intimacy between two men. There is also an awful lot of weather, a pretty white fox, a vicar that tells ghost stories and some very dangerous behaviour on a frozen lake (do not try this at home).
And now for the snippet:
Liam’s legs felt weak and his head pounded. Dizziness threatened to topple him again and in desperation he reached out for something solid to hold onto, hoping he’d find a fence post, or a tree trunk. Instead he found an arm.
“Woah, there, big feller.” A cheerful, male voice called in a lilting Scottish accent. A hand grabbed his and held it fast. The other arm snaked around Liam’s waist to stop him from falling. “I got you, don’t worry. Of course, I can’t guarantee we won’t go arse over tit anyway. I’m only just getting used to these legs myself.”
“W-what?” Liam asked in confusion, trying to focus on his rescuer.
“Legs.” The voice by his side repeated. “And feet, really? How do you cope with just two?”
