How was your turkey day? I hope it was gobblefabulous! Mine was nice; we went to see my side of the family 🙂
I’m posting again from This Time Around (which is a rework of Refugees which is the sequel to For the Heart of Phillip). Drama was everywhere in the first book; but it’s been tamed in this volume, which follows Robert and David’s journey after things didn’t go as planned in book one.
I hope you enjoy! This book is out now on Amazon 🙂
What is Rainbow Snippets? It’s a group of LGBT+ authors who post six sentences (or more) from a current WIP, published work or even something they’ve read that they want to rave about. Click on the link below the rainbow to be transported to a place of wonder where you will find tasters of everything from sweet romance, to hot and steamy, to fantasy and sci-fi.
To set the stage: (spoiler alert)!!! In the first book, Robert and Phillip break up and David and Andrew break up.
This is David coming home to find out that Andrew has left him:
The only thing David wanted right now was to have a nice, normal conversation about where they were headed as a couple. Was it over or would Andrew finally accept the marriage proposal that sat on the table?
While all of these thoughts swirled in his mind, David noticed a glaring incongruity; notably, that Andrew’s van was gone. He glanced at the time again—9:05 pm. He bit his lip in thought. It was unusual for Andrew to be out so late without letting him know. He frowned and scratched at his blond hair. Maybe he’s visiting his folks. Yes, that’s it. Maybe Janet and Tyler can talk some common sense into him. Marrying me is the best choice for him, not going back to that jackass.
He shrugged off his doubts, and exited his car. The warm evening air was rich with moisture. There would be a storm soon. His body had started to sweat, even in just his minimal outfit of scrubs, as he looked over his shoulder towards the street. Something nagged at him to look in the mailbox. He trudged down to the curb and saw that the day’s mail was still inside. Maybe he left to get Andrea before it came. He dismissed that as well and collected what was inside.
David didn’t even notice that all of the lights in the house were off, save for the garden lights, which were on their own timer. He yawned as he unlocked the door, and when he finished and turned the knob it creaked open, revealing the pitch-black house. He quickly turned on the foyer light, looked around the corner into the kitchen and plunked the mail on the counter.
