Welcome to Rainbow Snippets! Today, Callum wakes up with his Gruagach…
* * *
Ashamed of the tears that pricked his eyes, he tried to sit up, and turned in surprise when he wasn’t released from the stranger’s hold. His breath caught in his throat. The man was everything Callum found beautiful: carelessly handsome, with silver-blond hair falling in waves past his shoulders. Deep blue eyes met his, dancing with mischief, then without warning the man leaned forward and kissed him on the mouth. Callum moaned when the soft lips pressed against his, warm and sweet, and whimpered when the stranger drew away. A brilliant smile leaped across the lovely face, as if the man knew he wanted to be kissed again.
Callum touched his lips, confused. Had he been bespelled? “I don’t understand.”
CALLUM’S FATE -Amazon
In 1780, Scotland, following a harsh year of drought, Callum Mackenzie is forced from his father’s farm in the hopes of finding work.
But as fate would have it, Callum is lured onto the moors by the will-o-the-wisp. Lost in the dark, he falls into enchantment, encountering faeries and nymphs, until he stumbles into the arms of a licentious Barrow-Wight who lays claim to his soul.
Hearing his silent pleas, Donal sends Liam the gruagach (faery) to rescue Callum and bring him to his farm, a place of refuge from the Fae. Callum is happy working on Donal’s farm, slowly falling in love with the beautiful, silver-haired gruagach.
Yet there’s something wrong in the nearby forest…
Despite Donal’s warnings, Callum is lured into the forest and becomes tangled in its magic, easy prey for the Barrow-Wight. Will Liam be able to strike a deal with the Barrow-Wight to save Callum’s life, or has Callum found his last resting place instead?
Liam is amazing. Hes my favourite character.
Lovely description. Love Callum’s confusion.
Lovely, I love the dexcription of Liam.

Yeah, sorry, don’t see anything wrong with that situation! Lovely imagery, and Callum–oh, Callum. I can’t wait to read the whole thing.
