I am one of many talented authors who share excerpts from their books and/or works-in-progress every Wednesday on Hump Day Hook. If you’d like to read some more enticing author hooks, please follow this link.
My hump day hook for the day comes from my soon-to-be-released (July 1) contemporary romantic adventure, Dangerous Descents (first book in the LOVE IN THE LABYRINTHS series). Extasy Books just finished designing my cover last weekend – this beauty was done by Carmen Waters!
In this scene, the depressed Rebecca, who has overslept yet again, tells her best friend, Amanda, that she’s got a different destination in mind other than her normal day job…
Amanda furrowed her brow and shook her head. “What am I going to do with you? You’re not even dressed. If you don’t hurry, we’ll be late for work. I’ll still wait if you’ll get moving.”
“No, you go on ahead. I’m going to call in sick. I might quit anyway…or go to Vietnam.”
