#RainbowSnippets: Dreamers’ Destiny – 02/13/2016–02/14/2016


Happy Valentine’s Day!

My snippet is 6-ish sentences from my upcoming book, Dreamers’ Destiny, due out in April 2016 from Dreamspinner Press. Dreamers’ Destiny is m/m, erotic romance. (I refuse to acknowledge the sounds as words for this weeks snippet… and that may or may not be after creative punctuation, lol – please ignore and enjoy!)

Oh, and 18+ only please

Hope you enjoy!

“Thank you.”

Confused, he shifted so he could look into Cameron’s eyes. “For what, baby?”

“For being so good to me and always knowing what I need.” Cam leaned in, brushing his lips against Liam’s so softly, they barely touched.


Beep…. Beep…. Beep….

“No, not yet!”

Beep…. Beep…. Beep….

Liam Grady is the owner of the Feathered Quill, a quirky little bookstore in Asheville, and—though he doesn’t realize it yet—a dreamwalker. His last relationship failed almost a year ago, and he’s not had the interest or nerve to pursue anyone he’s met since.

Cameron Danu is a tattoo artist from rural Georgia. Cameron is left without a job after his boss, Jose, is forced to close the shop after a heart attack. When Cameron learns Jose has set up an interview for him at a small tattoo parlor in Asheville, he hopes for a fresh start in a new town.

Fate brings Cameron and Liam together, and they realize they’ve met before—in their dreams. A chance encounter and a winged tattoo might lead them to their destiny—if fear doesn’t turn their dreams into a nightmare.

    Sweet snippet, I love the “barely there” kiss, and the annoyance/denial of the beeping.

    Sweet snippet, but how annoying to be interrupted by the alarm.
