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.

It’s not really a loan so much as a transfer without involving anything traceable.”
Taliya stared at him. “I’m not sure if you’re brilliant or devious.”
