Rainbow Snippet for 6-17-2017

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.

Picking up from last week’ snippet of Onyx Sun.

Taliya sighed. “It’s been a long day – for both of us.  I’m going to bed.”


“No,” Luzita pleaded softly.  She stepped closer to Taliya and wrapped her arms around her, and a moment later Taliya was lost in the feel of her lips, soft and gentle, then almost fierce with a growing hunger.

Luzita’s arms and lips – the things she had missed the most, the only things she had been looking forward to when she was heading home from Roseeba Seven – the only things that had drawn her home at all…

And yet she could not quite lose herself in them; she was too hurt, and too mistrustful, and she pulled away.

    I’m right there with her. I don’t shift gears that fast either. Great snippet, P.T. :)

  2. Hard to find sort things out when attraction clouds the issue…

    Yes, I’m with her. It’s hard to just pick right back up with trust.

    It’s hard to trust again, but I hope she can eventually move past it.

  5. Trust is such a fragile thing.

    Poor Taliya, trust is so easily crushed.

  7. (Racing to read…a week behind, ugh)

    This is a beautiful moment, and a difficult one. Poor Taliya. :(
