Rainbow Snippets wishes you a Happy New Year

And does so with some confidence – after all, how can 2017 fail to be better than 2016?

(Don’t answer that. Please, please don’t answer that!)

Here’s a snippet from my lesbian fairytale, Capture the Moon, which came out for the first time as a standalone ebook today:

They kissed, and Adrien felt as though her body were on fire. Her breasts tingled where they pressed against Selene’s, and there was a throbbing between her legs she’d never known before. Selene’s mouth was hot and spicy, and her darting tongue teased at Adrien’s lips with a promise of yet sweeter pleasure to come. Adrien’s breathing quickened, and her chest heaved as Selene broke the kiss at last. “My own dear one,” Selene breathed. “But I have not yet freed you!” So saying, she took the key that Ned had given her and unlocked the chains that still bound Adrien’s hands. “There! You are free now, my love!”

Adrien smiled and took her princess in her arms once more. “Is it treason to gainsay a princess?” she asked. “For I fear you are wrong, my lovely Selene. Those iron chains about my wrists may be gone, but there are chains around my heart that will never be loosened.”

Rescuing a young monk, Felix, from brigands, she agrees to accompany him on his journey to the King’s castle to present the princess with a telescope he has made.

Princess Selene has sworn to marry only one who can give her the moon—but does she mean it literally? As Felix loves another, Adrien, still dressed as a man, takes the telescope in his stead. Adrien falls in love with the lively, beautiful princess and is amazed to find Selene loves her in return.

But will Selene’s love die when Adrien reveals her true gender? And in any case, two women cannot be married—can they?

Rainbow Snippets is posting early for Christmas

And today’s snippet is taken from To Love a Traitor, my historical novel set in the winter of 1920-21 but looking back to the Great War ( I did warn you Christmas makes me go all historical! *g*)

Our hero George is undercover investigating whether disabled veteran Matthew could be the traitor who cost George’s older brother his life during the war – and finding it ever harder to be objective. Especially when the disarmingly friendly Matthew invites him to stay with his family for Christmas:

“Wake up, sleepyhead! It’s Christmas morning!”

George opened one bleary eye to find Matthew’s boyishly grinning face not six inches away. “Bah, humbug,” he muttered only half in jest, pulling the pillow over his head.

It was torn away from him without ceremony. “I hope I don’t have to turn up clanking in chains to convince you of the error of your ways. Come on, come on! It’s Christmas! Time to get up!”

As he punctuated his last sentence by pulling the blankets from George’s bed, George was left with little choice but to follow orders. Still protesting grumpily, he swung his feet to the floor and stood to stretch.

“I can see at least six inches of stomach when you do that,” Matthew said teasingly. “You’ve no idea how tempting it is to poke it.”

Rather embarrassed, George dropped his arms abruptly.

Have a fabulous Christmas/holiday of your choosing, everyone! :D

best-gay-2016Wounds of the heart take the longest to heal.

When solicitor’s clerk George Johnson moves into a rented London room in the winter of 1920, it’s with a secret goal: to find out if his fellow lodger, Matthew Connaught, is the wartime traitor who cost George’s adored older brother his life.

Yet as he gets to know Matthew—an irrepressibly cheerful ad man whose missing arm hasn’t dimmed his smile—George begins to lose sight of his mission.

As Matthew’s advances become ever harder to resist, George tries to convince himself his brother’s death was just the luck of the draw, and to forget he’s hiding a secret of his own. His true identity—and an act of conscience that shamed his family.

But as their mutual attraction grows, so does George’s desperation to know the truth about what happened that day in Ypres. If only to prove Matthew innocent—even if it means losing the man he’s come to love.

Warning: Contains larks in the snow, stiff upper lips, shadows of the Great War, and one man working undercover while another tries to lure him under the covers.

Rainbow Snippets is travelling in time

I’m travelling back to Victorian times today – I’m off to see Conan Doyle and William Gillette’s Sherlock Holmes play in London in a mo. So why not travel with me? Here’s a snippet from my time travel novella, Trick of Time (which is, appropriately enough, set in and around the Criterion Theatre in Piccadilly):

I realise this is way over 6 sentences. But hey, it’s Christmas!πŸ˜‰

My present companion had on a single-breasted jacket that was open to display a dark waistcoat and a sort of white cravat. His clothes suited the scene a damned sight better than my jeans and T-shirt—suited the temperature better too; I shivered and wrapped my arms about myself. He had dark hair, slightly curly, and a full mouth, bringing to mind the cherubs from the Cri’s ceilings. His features, though, were far finer than theirs, his elegant cheekbones starkly visible, not hidden by a layer of puppy fat. He was a pared-down Lord Alfred Douglas, the highborn beauty who’d brought a playwright to his knees.

My lip quirked in a self-mocking smile. I was no Oscar Wilde, that was for sure.

The lad looked me up and down slowly then smiled without warmth, showing crooked teeth that were disconcertingly engaging—a touch of flawed humanity in that perfect face.

Then he spoke. “Oi, piss off, will yer? This is my patch.”

A lover from another time

When Ted Ennis steps out the doors of the Criterion Theatre for a cigarette and finds himself in Victorian London, he begins to doubt his sanity. At first he thinks it’s all a film set, and is sure that the strikingly handsome young man leaning against a lamppost must be the leading man…

What starts as a sordid transaction with a beautiful rent boy quickly turns into something much deeper, drawing him back again and again as he gets to know Jem and craves meaningful encounters with him.

But Ted doesn’t understand the exact conditions necessary for his trips through time—and for Jem, time may actually be running out. Now Ted has one last shot to get back to Jem and save their relationship, before it’s too late…

Rainbow Snippets is Celebrating Trans Awareness Week

This is Trans Awareness Week, so to celebrate, today’s snippet is taken from my novel Out! (3rd in my series of romantic comedies, The Shamwell Tales – and I’m also celebrating finishing writing #4, which has the provisional title of Spun! and should hit the shelves sometime in 2017). Out! features as a secondary character Lex, who is non-binary and uses they/their pronouns.

Here’s Lex musing on relationships to Patrick, who they work with:

“I just think you never see what people are really like before you go out with them, so you might as well get on with it. Saves time, dunnit?” Lex looked up, face earnest. “And well, before you go out with someone, you sorta build them up in your head, don’t you? Like, you start thinking they’re all brilliant and well fit and stuff. So when you finally go out with them, yeah, and they’re just like a normal person who farts in bed and picks their nose, right, you’re gonna be way more disappointed than you would of if you’d just gone out with ’em straightaway.”

“Bollocks,” [Patrick said.] “I don’t go putting blokes on a pedestal.”

Lex looked at him thoughtfully. “Nah, s’pose not. You’re more the he’s a wanker until proven innocent sort.”

And there’s still time (until around Sunday teatime) to enter the draw to win an e-copy of Out!, which you can do by leaving a comment on my post over at Trans Fiction Week: Gun Control.

Out!72web

When the costs are added up, will love land in the black?

Mark Nugent has spent his life in the closet—at least, the small part of it he hasn’t spent in the office. Divorced when he could no longer deny his sexuality, he’s sworn off his workaholic ways and moved to Shamwell with his headstrong teen daughter to give her a stable home environment.

His resolve to put his love life on hold is severely tested when he joins a local organization and meets a lively yet intense young man who tempts him closer to the closet threshold.

Patrick Owen is an out-and-proud charity worker with strong principles—and a newly discovered weakness for an older man. One snag: Mark is adamant he’s not coming out to his daughter, and Patrick will be damned if he’s going to start a relationship with a lie.

Between Mark’s old-fashioned attitudes and a camp, flirtatious ex-colleague who wants Mark for himself, Patrick wonders if they’ll ever be on the same romantic page. And when Mark’s former career as a tax advisor clashes with Patrick’s social conscience, it could be the one stumbling block they can’t get past.

Warning: Contains historically inaccurate Spartan costumes, mangled movie quotes, dubious mathematical logic and a three-legged pub crawl.

A Certain Persuasion is Out Today

A CERTAIN PERSUASSION
An anthology of stories set in and around the writings of Jane Austen, featuring LGBTQIA characters.

Thirteen stories from eleven authors, exploring the world of Jane Austen and celebrating her influence on ours.

Being cousins-by-marriage doesn’t deter William Elliot from pursuing Richard Musgrove in Lyme; nor does it prevent Elinor Dashwood falling in love with Ada Ferrars. Surprises are in store for Emma Woodhouse while visiting Harriet Smith; for William Price mentoring a seaman on board the Thrush; and for Adam Otelian befriending his children’s governess, Miss Hay. Margaret Dashwood seeks an alternative to the happy marriages chosen by her sisters; and Susan Price ponders just such a possibility with Mrs Lynd. One Fitzwilliam Darcy is plagued by constant reports of convictions for ‘unnatural’ crimes; while another must work out how to secure the Pemberley inheritance for her family.

Meanwhile, a modern-day Darcy meets the enigmatic Lint on the edge of Pemberley Cliff; while another struggles to live up to wearing Colin Firth’s breeches on a celebrity dance show. Cooper is confronted by his lost love at a book club meeting in Melbourne while reading Persuasion; and Ashley finds more than he’d bargained for at the Jane Austen museum in Bath.

My story: A Particular Friend

When Susan Price leaves Mansfield Park to accompany her aunt, Lady Bertram, to take the waters in Bath, she little expects to meet an old ‘friend’ of the family. Initially scandalised, Susan finds herself drawn to the former Mary Crawford, now a widow, Mrs Lynd.

But Lady Bertram will surely never countenance Susan’s intimacy with a woman whose brother caused her daughter’s disgrace – and Mrs Lynd’s true identity cannot be kept a secret forever.

Rainbow Snippets is getting in the Halloween Spirit

Charley Descoteaux posted a picture of skulls for Day of the Dead over at the Rainbow Snippets Facebook group this week, which reminded me of this little snippet from Fall Hard, my romantic suspense novel set in Iceland. Our amnesiac hero, Paul is visiting an exhibition on Egil’s Saga, and has come across the exhibit of a Viking scorn-stick. It’s jogged a memory – but not necessarily a pleasant one!

I’d seen something like this before. But not here. And it had been different; the head had been a skull, its bones shining whitely in the grey light that came through our window…

Our window. There had been a horse’s skull in our flat. Mine and Sven’s.

I stumbled out of the exhibition, tearing off the headphones.

Fall Hard

FallHard72web

Some memories are better off lost in the mist…

Eight months ago, British academic Paul Ansell lost his lover—and all the memories of their time together—in an accident at Iceland’s Gullfoss Falls. Returning to the misty island country to resume his study of the bloodthirsty Viking Egil Skallagrimsson is tough as he struggles to pull his life back together.

First, there’s his colleague, Mags, who treats him like glass, and summer student Alex, who peppers him with discomforting questions. Then there’s Icelandic jet-boat driver Viggo, a tattooed, modern-day Viking who won’t say much about how they know each other. Leaving Paul to wonder if their volcanic attraction is fuelled by a desire to make a fresh start, or desperation to forget the past.

As more fragments of his lost memories fall into place, Paul is unsure if he can trust himself, much less anyone around him. And he begins to suspect his accident was nothing of the kind.

Warning: Contains a modern-day Viking whose boat has V8 engines for oars, and a harsh land of hot springs and hotter passions that won’t forgive any false steps.

Sapphic Spectres

I’m delighted to say that Haunting Muses is now available in ebook and paperback, just in time to get you in the mood for Halloween:

In this collection of lesbian stories, ghosts, be they actual or the metaphorical ghosts of memories, aren’t necessarily evil and hauntings may or may not be bad. How do we move beyond the foul spirits or integrate the shining beings who haunt us in the cruelest or the best ways? And how do we or our characters reconcile these ghosts into transformation and healing within present reality?

Includes stories by Sacchi Green, Deborah Walker, Pascal Scott, Bonnie Jo Stufflebeam, Elaine Burnes, Doreen Perrine and my own story, Dance With Me.

I love a good anthology call, and this one really intrigued me with its wide interpretation of hauntings – and the chance to write a story about a very different kind of love from my usual. Here’s a little snippet from Dance With Me:

“Read to me,” Helen says, perched up on the kitchen counter, her stockinged legs swinging. “Read some more of that book about the girl who faked her own death to frame her husband. I like that one.”

“You would,” I say. “But I can’t. I’m cooking. See?” I hold up the knife I’ve been using to chop the courgette. It’s larger than the one I’d usually use for vegetables, but it’s beautifully curved and I like the way it feels in my hand. “Maybe after tea.”

“You’re soooo booooring,” she moans, slouching in a parody of teenage ennui. Then she smiles and sits up straight again. “If you don’t want to read, how about putting on some music? We could dance. You like dancing. I could teach you some more steps.”

I look at the knife, its surface too dull to show my reflection. It does feel good in my hand…

I put it down firmly. It’s only for a short while. “All right. But just a few dances.”

Rainbow Snippets is Visibly Bisexual

In celebration of Bisexual Visibility Week, here’s a snippet from Lovers Leap where, for a change, the bi guy really is confused. Only not about his sexuality. It’s about everyone else’s.πŸ˜‰

In this snippet, Liz is explaining to Michael that her romance with a trans woman doesn’t mean she’s attracted to guys:

Liz got right up in Michael’s face, her eyes narrowed to little slits like a snake’s. “I’ve got no problem with dicks. Well, not actual dicks, anyway. It’s the man on the other end I’ve got a problem with.”

“Why?”

“Jesus, do I have to spell it out? Lesbian.”

“Yeah, but . . . Girls are great, yeah, don’t get me wrong. But blokes are too. And if it’s not the actual tackle you’re objecting to, what is it?” He whirled to face Rufus. “Come to that, what you got against tits?”

Rufus hesitated, put on the spot. “Um, they wobble?”

Lovers Leap

LoversLeap_200x300If they looked, would they ever leap?

Good-looking, confident, and doted on by his widowed mum, Michael is used to thinking only of himself. Getting shoved off an Isle of Wight pier by an exasperated ex ought to come as a wake-up call—but then he meets Rufus and he’s right back to letting the little head take charge. Rufus is cute, keen, and gets under Michael’s skin in a disturbing way.

Would-be chef Rufus can’t believe his luck when a dripping wet dream of a man walks out of the sea on his birthday, especially when Michael ends up staying at the family B&B. Life is perfect—at least until Michael has to go home to the mainland.

Rufus can’t leave the island for reasons he’s entirely neglected to mention. And though Michael identifies as bi, breaking his mum’s heart by coming out and having an actual relationship with a guy has never been his plan. With both men determined to keep their secrets, a leap of faith could land them in deep water.
