Rainbow Snippets is a group for LGBTQ+ authors, readers, and bloggers to gather once a week to share six sentences from a work of fiction–a WIP or a finished work or even a 6-sentence book recommendation (snippets are 6 sentences long–one for each colour in the Pride flag). You can find all the snippets by clicking here.
My snippet this week is from Crooked Tree Ranch the first book in the Montana Series.
Damn cowboy was making a statement there and then; drawing a line in the dirt with his heated looks and his stubborn sexiness. Jay deliberately lifted a hand and waved, and in response Nate turned on his heel and walked up the path to the private houses. Gabe waved back though, a grin slashing his face. Luke said something, and whatever he said had Gabe cuffing his little brother around the ear. Then they followed Nate, and all too soon Jay and Ashley were in their own place with the door shut against the world.
“Got to love those cowboys,” Ashley said with a small smile.
