#RainbowSnippets #novellines Forty-Five 5/5: Nosy Neighbor

First off, Bella Books is having an ebook sale this weekend that includes three titles from my award-winning Sisters series (FF Sci-Fi) so go snatch some good deals before their gone. BELLA BOOK’S EXPLORE NEW WORLDS SALE.

Second, welcome to this week’s installment of Rainbowsnippets*! This one is uniquely mine, but there are lots of other great snippets to read, so after you finish here click the FB link at the bottom of the post to discover other great LGBTQIA authors and their works.

I’m sharing from Cleaning House, one of my current WIPs, again. Cleaning House is nearing the end of the WIP status. It’s set for an August 1 release, and it’s currently off in the fair land of proofreading, soon to return so it can be formatted and made pretty for its debut. (good grief, that sounded regrettably old south. Debutant ball anyone? Eww. *grimaces and shudders*)

I’m going to be looking for ARC reviewers in the very near future. If you’re interested, let me know.

The Setup: That messenger at Cent’s door has asked if she needs anything else… wonder what she says. Let’s find out, shall we?

     “No, um, thanks.”

     “Have a good day.” The messenger turned down the hall, leaving Cent to watch their floor-gliding strides until they reached the stairs.

     “You too.”

     “Cute accent, by the way.” The messenger stopped at the stairhead to smile at her then descended without saying more.

     “I thought you were into men.” Mrs. Donright, 3J, stared at Cent from between the chains securing her door. “That was a woman, right?”

     “Mind your own business.” Cent slammed her door closed and turned to press her back against it. Was that a man or a woman or…? Hell, she didn’t care. They were hot, and they’d flirted with her. That was enough.

Don’t just hate nosy neighbors when you’re trying to swoon?
