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 another one from Winter Cowboy, Whisper Ridge Wyoming #1, my latest release…
“I loved you,” he said, and just those three words rocked my world.
“What the hell?” I’d heard what he said, but maybe I’d misunderstood.
“I loved you for a very long time, from when I was twelve, and I know I was only nineteen when we ended up together, but I knew you were it for me.”
“No, you have to listen to me. I never stopped.” He reached out and pressed a hand to my chest. “I know there’s no chance for us now, that there’s been no chance for a long time, but I want you to know that whatever happens now, I never stopped.”
The Book – Out Now
Micah Lennox left Whisper Ridge after promising the man he loved that he would never return. But with his sister’s life was in danger, the only way he knows to keep her and his nephew safe is to go home. Spending winter in Wyoming, when he’d promised never to return, opens too many old wounds, but he’s on the run from justice which can’t be far behind, and this is his last chance at redemption.
After a hostage situation leaves Doctor Daniel Sheridan struggling with PTSD, he returns to Whisper Ridge. Joining his dad in family practice is a balm to soothe his exhausted soul, and somehow, he finds a peace he can live with. That is until he meets Micah in a frozen graveyard, and the years of anger and feelings of betrayal boiling inside him, erupt.
Two broken men fight and scratch for their lives and that of their families, and somehow, in the middle of it all, they find each other.
Is it possible that love can be rekindled and become a forever to believe in?
