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.
This week's Rainbow Snippet is from Deacon's Law my current WIP, the final book in the Heroes series.
“Your dad wouldn’t want you hurt like this,” Deacon murmured.
“You didn’t know my dad, you wouldn’t know what he wanted for me.”
“I know his son well enough to understand what kind of man he had to have been. You’re nothing like your Uncle and cousins.”
Rafe’s breath hitched.
“You don’t know me at all.”
The last thing he needs is to be dragged back in that world, but an attempt on Rafael's life is enough to make him risk his heart again.
Rafael 'Rafe' Ramirez wakes up in hospital, the victim of a hit and run. He’s stunned when the first face he sees is that of the man who betrayed him and left him for dead three years before. Witness protection had stripped Rafe of his family and friends and now it seems his sacrifice to bring his Uncle to justice was for nothing.
Someone wants Rafe dead and the only way he can stay alive is to go with the murdering drug dealer who broke his heart. But how can he ever trust Deacon, and how can Deacon protect Rafe without falling in love all over again?
