Rainbow Snippets – 25/2/18 – A Knight to Remember

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.


My Rainbow Snippet for this week is from A Knight to Remember. Here be dragons.

Aric removed his hand and sat there waiting for Denys to speak. Surely what he said couldn’t be true? Denys wasn’t used to being trusted like this. He raised his head, daring to look at Aric properly, to give him a glimpse of the loneliness and tiredness that had plagued him for so many months now. Aric returned Denys’s gaze steadily. There was a depth of emotion in the dark shade of Aric’s eyes, and a gentleness about him Denys hadn’t noticed before.

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
