Rainbow Snippets: There You Are
Hello All! Time for another snippet for Charley Descouteaux’s Rainbow Snippets Facebook Group!
I’m excited about the release of my new novella, There You Are this week on Wednesday, 12/23. So I’m sharing another six sentences from this wonderful story about love and second chances. This snippet comes after Phineas returns to the stage as drag queen Phanny Hill and Cody is completely enthralled. They return to Phineas’s home after the show:
Phineas pulled the dress on and let its skirt fall gently around him, then contemplated himself in the mirror. He loved this dress—it reminded him of the one Marilyn Monroe had worn in The Seven Year Itch, which had billowed so tantalizingly around her thighs. Only this one was jade green, the color a wonderful contrast with his red hair. He stared at himself, admiring how the halter set off the dusting of freckles on his shoulders, liking how feminine he looked in his makeup and eyelashes, even without the wig.
Cody appeared behind him, barefoot and shirtless—sexy and lanky and all man—and snaked his tattooed arms around Phineas’s waist. “What a beautiful fox you are,” he murmured, blue eyes twinkling.
Bisexual musician Cody Bellstrom is a free spirit, easygoing and unattached. On a cross-country trip, Cody befriends young Sandy Nixon and gets him safely to Portland and his uncle, Phineas MacDonald. Beautiful Phineas turns Cody’s life upside down, and Cody learns he’s not as unattached as he aspires to be. With the hard-won knowledge of what lies underneath his need to be free, Cody wins a chance at real freedom and true love.
Ever since his longtime lover Allen died, Phineas MacDonald has lived a circumscribed life. He stopped performing as fierce drag queen Phanny Hill and works part-time in a bookstore. Phineas never expected to find love again. But when sexy and caring Cody Bellstrom turns up, Phineas feels his orderly life slipping out of his control. Cody brings him alive again, but now Phineas must find the courage to let go of his grief over Allen and give love a second chance.
