Rainbow Snippets, July 16-17

Hello Snippeteers and other visitors! I am posting a serialized novel called Fidele.

Malcolm Carmichael is a WWII veteran dealing with the death of his mother, a disappointing love affair, and the ghosts who don’t leave him alone.

In the current chapter, Malcolm catches a glimpse of someone who will change his life:

He was tall and broad-shouldered, with wide-set eyes that swept over the lounge in a cool, measured way, and a stern set to his features, like someone accustomed to being in command. His dark hair was pushed back from his face, thick, wavy, and longer than was currently fashionable. His clothes fit his body perfectly, from the cuffs of his raincoat to the toes of his Oxfords, and all looked expensive and custom-made. His bearing was military-straight, not an unusual sight in those post-war days, his shoulders a perfect square and his feet planted solidly on the marble floor.

He was the most beautiful man I’d ever seen. Just one look and I wanted him, fervently and fully and without hope of possession.

Fidele‘s Table of Contents can be found here.

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.

  1. Lovely description, not just of the man’s appearance but of the hints of his character that it reveals. No wonder Malcolm is smitten.
