Rainbow Snippets is a group for LGBTQ+ authors, bloggers, and readers to gather once a week and share six sentences from a work of fiction–a WIP or a finished work or even a 6-sentence book recommendation (no spoilers please!). Check out all the other awesome snippets by clicking on the picture above.
I decided to continue with excerpts from my science fiction semi-paranormal M/M erotic romance, Sanguine, since it’s on sale for 99 cents for the remainder of the year. I’m picking up from where I left off in last Saturday’s snippet.
Gregor turned away from him, bracing his hands on the dresser. His shoulders were shaking and Kaen wanted to go to him, to hold him.
“Say it.” Kaen’s voice was a whisper.
“Your lover,” he choked. “I want to be your lover.”
“Was that so hard?” Kaen asked gently, coming up behind him. Strong arms encircled him and pulled him upright, holding him against his chest as he nuzzled the back of his neck.
The only response Gregor could muster fell somewhere between a moan, a whimper, and a sob, and Kaen smiled.
“I am sorry,” Kaen whispered. “I was not angry with you, Gregor. I just… I don’t know what to do with the feelings that I have for you. It has been so long…”
Gregor turned to face him. “Master,” he whispered. “Do with them – with me – whatever you wish.”
Kaen Yblis is a man with a past – if only he could remember it. He lost his memories in a duel with another vampire, and for centuries he has been alone, not even aware of all that had been torn from him.
Until he meets Gregor Vladescu, a young human who stirs desires and emotions that Kaen didn’t know he had, and whose blood brings back fragments of memories.
As Kaen returns to his ancient home, a threat from his past arises and threatens to once again tear away everything that is precious to him. Will ancient blood and ancient soul bond be enough to save them all or will they be the very things that destroy them?
