Rainbow Snippets is failing to impress the boss

Today’s snippet is taken from the about-to-be-released Shamwell Tales #4, Spun!, which is due out on 3rd July (but should be available to download from the Riptide website early – either today or tomorrow, I think).

Here, our (possibly slightly inebriated) hero David is enjoying himself a little too much at a party given by his (soon-to-be-ex) employer:

David found himself seized and kissed to within an inch of his sanity. After that, matters soon came to, well, a head, and David was on his knees, willingly sucking down Xav’s sizeable manhood.

Then the curtains, which had at some point closed behind them, were flung open. There was a shrill cry of “Xavier!” followed by a hand which clapped David’s shoulder with bruising force and yanked him away from his task.

Oops. David twisted and came face-to-face with his employer, who was visibly quivering with ire.

Spun! – #4 in The Shamwell Tales

Spun-200x300With friends like these . . .

An ill-advised encounter at the office party leaves David Greenlake jobless and homeless in one heady weekend. But he quickly begs work from his ex-boss and takes a room in Shamwell with easy-going postman Rory Deamer. David doesn’t mean to flirt with the recently divorced Rory—just like he doesn’t consciously decide to breathe. After all, Rory’s far too nice for him. And far too straight.

Rory finds his new lodger surprisingly fun to be with, and what’s more, David is a hit with Rory’s troubled children. But while Rory’s world may have turned upside down in the last few years, there’s one thing he’s sure of: he’s straight as a die. So he can’t be falling for David . . . can he?

Their friends and family think they know all the answers, and David’s office party hook-up has his own plans for romance. Rory and David need to make up their minds and take a stand for what they really want–or their love could be over before it’s even begun.

Due out from Riptide Publishing 3rd July 2017 and now available to pre-order

    Hm… Doesn’t sound like the smoothest move for a work party. But at least it wasn’t during working hours — I hope.
