Rainbow Snippets

Started nano. I managed to do 5000 in one day but today isn’t going as well.(it’s been an exhausting day).

Here’s a bit more from Blood Red Roulette

Something stirred in his gut about the cause of Luc’s injuries. If the drunk had mentioned seeing Luc in an alley with what he thought was another young man, Arrigo didn’t doubt Luc’s father would react violently. He seemed to respond viciously to most things from the few times Arrigo had seen him. Arrigo truly regretted his impulsive would-be snacking. He wished he could make Luc’s family stop hurting him. Vampires could control minds but only briefly and in very limited ways. The effects quickly faded, so the best he could do would be to take the pressure off for a night and only if he spent a good deal of time concentrating on it.

“Okay, I’ll take as many as I can carry, then.”

Luc’s pale brow beetled. “Why are you being so nice? You barely know me.”

“Call it karma.” Arrigo waved the twenty. This time Luc took it. Arrigo stooped and loaded his arms up with several water bottles. “Let’s just say I have the means, and it makes me feel good to help others. Why don’t you go get out of the heat? It’s only going to make your eye worse.”

Blurb Arrigo Giancarlo’s friends think he’s a rich young man with the unusual job of paranormal investigator, working with his psychic assistant in Las Vegas. In truth he’s a two-thousand-year-old vampire and member of the Chiaroscuro, a group of Supernaturals dedicated to keeping humanity safe from the more dangerous of their kind. He’s also openly bisexual… but alone.

When he spots Luc St. John in a bar, Arrigo is intrigued. What begins as an effort to repay the kindness shown to him in the past quickly turns into much deeper feelings for the suffering and displaced Cajun. For Luc’s part, he feels too poor, too uneducated, and too bound to his hateful family to ever be worthy of elegant and cultured Arrigo.

An old enemy, Eleni, blames Arrigo for murdering her true love. On the anniversary of that death, she’s back to take revenge. As Arrigo’s closest friends fall victim to savage attacks, he fears nothing will keep Luc safe. Should he break both their hearts and let Luc go, or is it too late? If Luc’s already in Eleni’s sights, Arrigo knows that like most things in Vegas, the odds are against him.
