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 Spirit Bear – now available in Kindle Unlimited.
“Is it okay if I kiss you?” Mitchell asked softly, leaning closer until mere inches were between their lips.
Aiden was struck dumb, couldn’t form words if he had tried as Mitchell leaned impossibly close, a spark of something in his eyes that scared Aiden. He moved closer and closer until only breath separated them, then Mitchell paused, waiting for affirmation, waiting for the okay. It never came, not in words anyhow. Aiden reached up to meet the kiss and they simply brushed a warm touch, mouths closed and eyes open. Aiden slanted his head, getting a better position, and opened his mouth on a breath.

Aiden Novak hides who he is. Losing his dad five years ago in the most horrific way has left him scarred and wary. He’s supposed to inherit everything his dad worked so hard to build, but he feels nothing, and after a failed abusive relationship he is desperately combatting grief and isolation.
Mitchell’s entire life changes when he hears a lecture on conservationism from Dominic Novak, and like the rest of the world, he’s stunned when he hears Dominic has died. Five years later, he has worked hard to prove that he deserves a permanent position at Novak Park, he needs to show the new owner what an asset he would be.
Could working together at a grizzly bear sanctuary in British Columbia be the answer for them both?
