Rainbow Snippets is a Facebook Group that invites authors to post six sentences of their work each weekend. It can be from anything you like, your current WIP, a recent release, the golden oldie that even you had forgotten you had written, or just a scrap of an idea (as long as it has six coherent sentences). Nothing of your own work worth mentioning? How about a six sentence review of your favourite LGBTQ+ story.
This week’s snippet comes from A Bell Rings again. You can now get it on early download from Pride Publishing or pre-order from Amazon and it is out on general release from this Tuesday, 10th May. More buying links below. This is the sequel to Not Every Time. Jack wakes up and has no memory of his partner Raziel, but when he finds a new person to share his flat, there is something familiar and unsettling about the man. And, I don’t know about anyone else but having cats in the bathroom is a familiar experience for me.
Familiar meowing penetrated the sound of water. Jack pulled back the curtain to find Fred and George sat waiting for him to finish.
“For goodness sake, you two. Can’t I have any privacy?” He drew back the curtain, washed himself, pushing down his half-hard cock. A few minutes later, he stepped out of the shower, grabbed a towel, wrapped it around himself then padded to his bedroom. He needed to eat, to watch something, to take his mind off those blue eyes.
Raziel Slade and Jack Hastings have been best friends since Raz saved Jack’s life twelve years ago. Only Jack doesn’t remember Raz at all, and he certainly doesn’t remember falling in love with him. Jack has explicit dreams begin of a blue-eyed male stranger. Needing a new flatmate after his best friend moves out, Jack is introduced to Raziel Slade who has extraordinary blue eyes, and Jack has no idea how to cope with his attraction to the man.
Raziel Slade has a secret—he used to be an angel. He fell in love with Jack Hastings many years ago, and happily became human, but the angels aren’t prepared to let him go. All Raz wants to do is return to his lover any way he can, but there are rules.
When a film brings back Jack’s memories, the question is will he feel the same, especially when he finds out what Raz gave up for him? And are the angels finally ready to let Raziel, the Keeper of Secrets, go?
