Rainbow Snippets wishes you a Happy New Year

And does so with some confidence – after all, how can 2017 fail to be better than 2016?

(Don’t answer that. Please, please don’t answer that!)

Here’s a snippet from my lesbian fairytale, Capture the Moon, which came out for the first time as a standalone ebook today:

They kissed, and Adrien felt as though her body were on fire. Her breasts tingled where they pressed against Selene’s, and there was a throbbing between her legs she’d never known before. Selene’s mouth was hot and spicy, and her darting tongue teased at Adrien’s lips with a promise of yet sweeter pleasure to come. Adrien’s breathing quickened, and her chest heaved as Selene broke the kiss at last. “My own dear one,” Selene breathed. “But I have not yet freed you!” So saying, she took the key that Ned had given her and unlocked the chains that still bound Adrien’s hands. “There! You are free now, my love!”

Adrien smiled and took her princess in her arms once more. “Is it treason to gainsay a princess?” she asked. “For I fear you are wrong, my lovely Selene. Those iron chains about my wrists may be gone, but there are chains around my heart that will never be loosened.”

capturethemoonAccompanied only by her faithful piglet Ferkel, country girl Adrien disguises herself as a boy and sets out on a journey of discovery—not least to evade her several suitors. Rescuing a young monk, Felix, from brigands, she agrees to accompany him on his journey to the King’s castle to present the princess with a telescope he has made.

Princess Selene has sworn to marry only one who can give her the moon—but does she mean it literally? As Felix loves another, Adrien, still dressed as a man, takes the telescope in his stead. Adrien falls in love with the lively, beautiful princess and is amazed to find Selene loves her in return.

But will Selene’s love die when Adrien reveals her true gender? And in any case, two women cannot be married—can they?
