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!).

I’m switching gears for a bit, taking a break from Onyx Sun and posting some excerpts from Sanguine, a science fiction semi-paranormal M/M erotic romance.
In this excerpt Kaen and Gregor have been discussing Kaen (he’s a vampire) feeding from other people. Kaen speaks first.
“They will never be to me what you are,” he murmured. “They are my people, but you… you are something more.”
Gregor closed his eyes, his love for Kaen overwhelming him. “It shouldn’t matter to me,” he said. “You are the Master. Who you feed from or who you…”
“No,” Kaen said sharply. He stroked Gregor’s cheek with gentle fingers. “I cannot imagine wanting anyone the way I do you. It… it goes beyond physical pleasure.” He kissed Gregor, softly at first, then with increasing passion until he finally felt Gregor yield and relax.
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?
