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’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.
“I am so glad that you found me.” Kaen stepped back and looked at him questioningly. “How did you know I was a vampire?”
“I’m a Hunter, remember? And in addition, you… You…” Gregor sighed, not having the words to explain, and finally shrugged. “You are my Blood Master… my family’s Blood Master. You… I had no choice but to respond to you, to go to you… It was so hard not to, the times that you would come to check on us…”
Kaen nodded slowly. “I think… I think I felt it… but I didn’t know what it was.” He closed his eyes, remembering the feelings that had drawn him to the work sites. “I would go to check on the work being done, but that was an excuse. It was you. I – I wanted to see you. I didn’t understand why, but…” He reached out and stroked Gregor’s cheek, awed by the connection the two of them shared.
Gregor smiled and kissed his wrist softly. “And now you are stuck with me.”
“And quite happily at that,” Kaen said, kissing him back. “Thank you, for coming to me.”
“I had no choice.” But Gregor’s smile said that he knew he was where he belonged.
“Do you want a choice?” Kaen asked quietly, searching Gregor’s eyes.
“If I had one,” Gregor replied, “it would be to stay with you.”
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?
