Hump Day Hook



This week’s hook is from my current WIP – Death Wish. It’s a sizzling hot paranormal. The heroine Amberlee James is scheduled to die. The fates have decided that the ‘good’ deeds, she’s done have earned her a death wish. Joel, the hero, is the granter of final wishes who has been assigned to Amberlee. Things start going south when he realizes that he’s attracted to her – very attracted…

This hook is where Joel ‘official’ introduces himself to Amberlee.

              “Amberlee Maria James?”  His face hardened and his voice chilled.  The temperature in the room seemed to drop and Shifter growled from the door. 

            “Yes,” she whispered.  He’s a serial killer or an insurance salesman.  Just my luck.  Why did I invite him in? 

            “Let me properly introduce myself.  I’m Joel, the Granter of Final Wishes.  And you have one last wish before you die.” 

            The pale blue room spun as Amberlee grabbed the edge of the counter and sank to her knees.  He is a killer.  I’m going to die.  Amberlee closed her eyes. Why did he have to have such a great ass?

Hump Day Hook



Since the theme of this Hump Day Hook was ‘scary’ for Halloween, this hook comes from Treasure Hunt. After all what is Halloween without pirates???


A female pirate for a Halloween read??

A female pirate for a Halloween read??

DeLaney Black Heart is the captain of The Gypsy Princess, the most feared pirate ship on the Cannequ seas, until recently. Her long standing enemy, Falken Sands, is making good on his threat to ruin her. She is in desperate need of a large bounty to soothe her crew and reclaim her title.

Raven Kinsley is a treasure hunter. He offers DeLaney the chance to redeem herself. Only their history is stopping DeLaney from jumping on the offer. Raven abandoned her a year earlier and disappeared.

Left with no other choice, DeLaney agrees to Raven’s commission. They begin their journey to claim the lost treasure of Midas, but soon trouble surrounds them. Raven and DeLaney combine forces to battle gryphons, the possessed Falken Sands, and other creatures.

DeLaney tries to convince herself what she feels for Raven is born out of battle, not love. Raven knows he loves DeLaney, but until an old enemy is beaten, he can’t make his claim on her heart.

As secrets are revealed, they realize this is more than a mere treasure hunt. It’s a battle for their lives.

 Hook ~

 DeLaney Black Heart walked down the uneven wooden sidewalk, her blood boiling. She couldn’t believe her body was betraying her like this. The moment she had looked into the swirling brown pools of his eyes, DeLaney’s insides had turned to burning lava.

A thick bank of fog had rolled in from Ghost Whisper harbor. The dense gray mass carried the moans and wails of the lost souls of dead fishermen, sailors, and pirates that gave the cove its name. On nights such as these, only shadows walked the streets of Twist of Fate.

Thin, wispy fingers reached out for DeLaney, but she ignored them.

Hump Day Hook



This week is another hook from  my Halloween romance suspense Knock Knock

Blurb ~ 
New to Kanna, Florida, Lila Maxwell attends All Treats, a Halloween speed dating event in the hopes of meeting Prince Charming but instead one Halloween ghoul after another appears at her door until Cowboy Bill.

Jax Carlson has spent the last year focusing all of his attention on starting his own business. Hiring Lila Maxell over the Internet as his project manager was the completing task. Set to open for business in three days, Jax plans on spending a couple of days on his boat relaxing. However, his friend Erik has a different idea – a speed dating Halloween party. 

Jax has spent the night plotting the best revenge possible for Erik until Sally opens the door. The woman dressed in the pale lavender Harem costume ignites a fire that Jax thought was impossible without the aid of his formulated dating list. 

After a night of mind blowing sex, Lila sneaks out before they exchange real names believing it was no more than a one-night stand. 

When Lila reports to work she learns Cowboy Bill is actually Jax Carlson. She thinks keeping her hormones in check while convincing Jax that love doesn’t follow a formula is complication enough until she learns the participants of the All Treats speed dating event are being killed.

Knock Knock.... answer if you dare

Knock Knock…. answer if you dare

“A lover’s moon,” a woman’s voice came from Lia’s left.

Lila looked over at the woman dressed up like Snow White. Her black wig hung a little askew and her lips appeared swollen.

“Local legend says lovers would arrange to meet in the glades using the light of the moon to find their way. If he got lost on his way, then the love wasn’t real because the beams only light the path for those with the truest hearts.” Snow White lifted a bottle of pre-mixed strawberry daiquiri. “A night of true love.” She toasted the air.

“What about those who just stumble along the sidewalk and find your door?” Lila asked trying to convince herself that the woman had to have had a better selection of date applications than she.

Hump Day Hook – Give Away

I’m excited to be part of the Hump Day Hook give away. I’ll be giving away one of these cute white boards and a five pack of dry erase makers. The board has wild thing on it and goes with my hot summer story Taking a Risk…

DangerousMen_TakingaRisk[1]writing scenes 016

Leigh is a person who enjoys routine…until she signs up for a kayak trip down the Amazon…then it becomes all about Taking a Risk.

Time to begin the seduction. “The temperature is climbing,” she commented, hoping she didn’t sound dumb. Being a tease wasn’t something she’d ever done.
“There are several bottles of water packed in ice in the hatch behind you.”
“Thanks.” She pulled her shirt off and turned to open the hatch. Women often wore the style of sports bra she had on without a shirt but she never had. She felt her breasts were too large and honestly, she’d never had courage.
Now she hoped her gut was right and Nick found her sexually appealing or it was going to be a very disappointing seven nights. Stuffing the shirt in the hatch, she turned and opened the bottle of water. While his jaw wasn’t in the river, it was hitting the side of the kayak and she couldn’t be positive but she thought he moaned.
She bit her lip to keep from smiling. If only Rayna could see her know. She was about to have sex with Tarzan.

Hump Day Hook Wednesday

humpdayhookWelcome this is my first week being a part of the Hump Day Hook Wednesday…

This snippet is from my current WIP… the first book in the Lumen Series. Each book centers around one of the five witch families that rule the non-human world. This is from Rowana’s POV, a witch who must battle a demon to save her village in 1524 and her lover. She’s a ‘good’ witch sho uses love to fuel her magic but her descendants have sort of taken to using other emotions to fuel their magic – lust, anger – which puts the family in danger. The majority of the story is told from Cyrena POV, a distant granddaughter, who has her hands full… a few glimpses of those will be forthcoming 🙂

Rowana moved across the rough wooden floor and wrapped him in her arms. “You are the bravest man I know. You are strong enough to claim me as your lover even though it has caused most of the village to reject you. On a moonless starless night with a fierce winter storm raging, you travel to my hut to ensure my safety. You are the reason my magic is as strong as it is.” She kissed his neck. “Come to my bed and love me. Make me forget for a time of what awaits us.”

Again thanks for stopping by. Make sure to check out all the other great hooks ~
