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 a book I've just got the rights back to, Seth and Casey, which will be re-released on February 7.
“Get out!” Seth shouted. “I don’t care about your shit, or anyone else’s shit. I don’t need a counselor, so take your bag and get out. I don’t need you up in my space, telling me that my career is over. It wasn’t you who nearly died and I can make my own damn decisions.”
“And I don’t need a husband in denial who refuses to admit he needs any help, that he won’t ever be a firefighter again, with a hair-trigger temper who scares the hell out of me,” Casey snapped and then clapped his hand over his mouth.
Seth Wild is a fire fighter who has lost everything. Nearly dying in a building collapse, he is scared and angry and chases away the only good thing in his life—school teacher Casey McGuire.
When a sudden and violent snow storm hits their town he receives a message Casey and ten kids are trapped in an education centre center with no way out. There is no one else who can help, he’s the last fire fighter in town with his bum leg and his icy heart.
He doesn’t hesitate. He always promised he would be Casey’s hero, but will he ever again be Casey’s love?
