If you’re new to the snips circuit or have found me by accident…Rainbow Snippets is a Facebook group where GLTBQ writers post snippets of their work every Saturday. There are snips from every genre, kind of pairing and heat level from sweet to steamy.

Good afternoon, snippeteers! Between a niggling cold, a mountain of work, and a stack of edits it’s been a very loooooong week. It’s a kinda release day for me today too, as my latest story, Crossfire, is part of the MM Romance Valentine’s Day Giveaway before going on sale later in the week. (The giveaway has 20 new m/m love stories in a range of genres… so if you’re in need of a new book or two, head on over!)
On top of all that, it’s also the anniversary of Ghosts coming out today, which is sorta poignant, since I’m editing the extra-trickly bits of Nico and Daniel’s journey today.
It’s all a little crazy, and I’m sorely in need of some quiet time with a book or some knitting and music. Hopefully, there’ll be a chance of it later.
For my rainbow snippet today, I’m staying with Starstruck, the sequel to Undercover Star. Matisse and Josh have been apart for weeks while Matisse was on tour and on their first evening at home, they’re working to reconnect. Last week, we saw Mat’s take on this, and today it’s Josh’s turn.
Josh settled on one end of the couch and pulled Matisse’s feet into his lap. Gently at first, then harder, he started to rub his thumb up and down the bottom of Matisse’s foot. He knew when the pressure was perfect, because Matisse threw his head back and a perfectly filthy groan rang from his throat.
“Gods, yes! More.”
Josh’s body reacted to sound and words alike. He enjoyed the slow wash of arousal, the gentle burn starting deep in his belly and drifting through his body like lazy smoke. Wildfire passion was fun. Indulging it with Matisse was exceptionally good fun. But this gentle way of getting reacquainted was enjoyable, too. A slow dance of seduction, of relearning each other after all the time they’d spent apart.
