Rainbow Snippets is feeling much more upbeat this week

So here’s a snippet from Lovers Leap, my romantic comedy due out on Leap Day, 29th February:

Story so far: Our unlikely hero Rufus has just found a stranger, Michael, walking out of the sea, fully clothed and dripping wet, on the Isle of Wight in February…


He swallowed, because this was starting to seem like it might be about to turn into one of his dreams or a porno or something (not a lot of difference, if he was honest, most of the time). Was this the bit where the wet guy winked at him and said, Come on then, don’t you want to get me out of these wet clothes?

What the wet guy actually did was scowl and say, “Well? You just gonna stand there and watch me die of hypothermia, or are you gonna get me somewhere warm?”

Close enough.

    *chuckles* Love the ‘close enough.’ Nothing like looking on the bright side XD

    Snort. Loved this exchange. Apropos of nothing, Isle of Wight is one of those places I’d love to see.

  8. Rian Durant says:

    LOL! It might be close when you think of it – get me somewhere warm and then get my clothes off. This will hardly happen though, I see a stormy (and funny!) relationship between those two:)

  9. Hehehe… love Michael already! And Rufus sounds like a great character. Can’t wait to see more of them.

  10. “Not a lot of difference.” I laughed at this. I can’t wait to read more!
