Rainbow Snippet – 11/9/16 – Winter Duet

My Rainbow Snippet this week is from Winter Duet book 2 of my WWII Echoes Rising series. I’m finding it very difficult to find snippets from the books in this series that don’t contain spoilers. Too much plot going on!

“Of course he could just be faking sleep and listening to everything we’ve just said.”

Ken slammed on the brakes. Pain screamed through Matt’s arm as he was flung forward and collided with the dashboard.

“I was just joking,” Matt said. He hadn’t meant to get Ken so riled up. Matt rubbed at his sore arm. He’d been told his jokes could be painful at times, but this was taking that just a little too literally.

About Anne Barwell

Anne Barwell lives in Wellington, New Zealand. She shares her home with a cat with “tortitude” who is convinced that the house is run to suit her; this is an ongoing “discussion,” and to date, it appears as though Kaylee may be winning. In 2008, Anne completed her conjoint BA in English Literature and Music/Bachelor of Teaching. She has worked as a music teacher, a primary school teacher, and now works in a library. She is a member of the Upper Hutt Science Fiction Club and plays violin for Hutt Valley Orchestra. She is an avid reader across a wide range of genres and a watcher of far too many TV series and movies, although it can be argued that there is no such thing as “too many.” These, of course, are best enjoyed with a decent cup of tea and further the continuing argument that the concept of “spare time” is really just a myth. She also hosts and reviews for other authors, and writes monthly blog posts for Love Bytes. She is the co-founder of the New Zealand Rainbow Romance writers, and a member of RWNZ. Anne’s books have received honorable mentions five times, reached the finals four times—one of which was for best gay book—and been a runner up in the Rainbow Awards. She has also been nominated twice in the Goodreads M/M Romance Reader’s Choice Awards—once for Best Fantasy and once for Best Historical. Anne can be found at https://annebarwell.wordpress.com

      Ken had good reason to slam on the brakes, but revealing why would be a spoiler 😉 (although it is a documented piece of history) Glad you enjoyed the snippet 🙂


  6. Poor Matt. That was kind of funny too, but yes, poor Matt.
