Rainbow Snippets – 28/1/18 – The Harp and the Sea

Rainbow Snippets is a group who post 6 sentences each week from LTBTQ+ fiction or a book rec. Check out the FB page for more. #RainbowSnippets

I haven’t posted in this group for a while as last year got very hetic, and I’ve missed it, and aiming to get back to posting regularly this year.

Today’s snippet is from The Harp and the Sea, an historical with a touch of fantasy I’m co-writing with Lou Sylvre.

Fear rose in him.

You’re too late. Too late….

The ocean fought him, wanting to keep what it thought its own, but Ian wasn’t having it. Robbie was his, and to hell with giving him up. Not after coming this close to losing him.

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
