Wow, only one more week of 2017 left! Where has the year gone? I’m loving the snippeting picture for this week 🙂
Anyway, if you’re new to Rainbow Snippets, authors post links to 6-line teasers from LGBT+ stories with a wide variety of themes. They could be WIPs, published works, recommendations etc. Check out the group HERE and you might find your next favourite read.
Last week I posted a teaser from In Darkest Peru, the first story to be included in my upcoming Short Stories Collection, which I am hoping will be available from January 31, 2018. Watch out for updates, but I’m working hard to get it ready in time.
In Darkest Peru now has a brand new blurb, too, take a look 🙂
When shy and geeky Rhys White is ditched by his boyfriend of five years, and made redundant from his job in the space of one week, he decides to make some changes. Tired of being boring and hiding being his computer, he throws caution to the winds and buys a plane ticket to Peru.
The adventure in Peru starts out well, but then disaster strikes when the bus he is travelling on is held up by thieves. Rhys loses everything, including his passport, wallet, and phone.
Stranded in Cuzco, not too far from the famous Inca city of Machu Picchu, Rhys tries to find someone to help him. Just when he begins to lose hope, sexy Brazilian, Rafael, comes to his rescue, and his desperation situation takes a turn for the better.
MC Rhys gets his first look at Rafael, his rescuer, after he loses all his belongings and finds himself stranded in Peru. After almost getting himself run over, the person in the car jumps out and helps him up.

“Yes. Thanks. Sorry.” I nodded to emphasise my reply. A large, caramel-coloured hand reached out to me, its owner stooping slightly. I stared at the hand, then let my gaze drift along a muscular but not enormous arm to the short sleeve of a blue T-shirt. Finally, I took in the stranger’s face with its chiselled features, high cheekbones, collar-length black hair, and dark brown eyes. He didn’t look Peruvian. He was too tall and he was gorgeous.
