Today I would like to share something that I usually post over on my author blog. It is a weekly exercise where authors will post excerpts from their novels and short stories, to show off some of our talents, and hopefully encourage new readers to check out our work. Here is the Hump Day Hook for my upcoming third novel Love Redeems (A Redcliffe Novel). Be warned, it is not for those of a delicate disposition…
“Jessica,” Danny gasped again, his voice struggling to sound human, “Jessica, please, let me go. You do not want to do this.”
I laughed, lowering my face to his. He smelled of woodland, fresh foliage, running water, and something clean and fresh and alive. I inhaled deeply, closing my eyes as I savoured the sensation. While I did this I held tight to his arms, feeling the strain of hard muscle beneath my fingers, which triggered a tightening in my body. Opening my eyes, I found Danny staring helplessly at me. His struggle faded as he fell into the hypnotic emerald depths of my gaze. His wolf eyes glowed at me, and he scented my skin as I moved in for a kiss.
“You smell of tiger,” he growled softly, “I have never experienced this before.”
“Enjoy it while you can,” I growled in response, and then I touched my lips to his, softly at first and then harder, passionate, forcing my power into and through his body.
I writhed on top of him, my nails gouging the skin of his arms, my power flowing straight into the alpha and calling out to his pack. Behind me I heard Simon cry out.
“No!” he shouted, “Jessica, stop this, now!”
What do you make of that? Exciting stuff! If you would like to see the offerings of my fellow group members, please see our Facebook Hump Day Hook group, or check out the blog by Kerrianne Coombes for a full list of participants. I will update you when I have a fixed release date for Love Redeems (A Redcliffe Novel), but in the meantime see my author website for books 1 and 2 in the series; Love Hurts (A Redcliffe Novel) and Love Kills (A Redcliffe Novel).
