My Sexy Saturday – June 29 – from Dangerous Descent

Every Saturday, a group of talented authors post 7 words, 7 lines or 7 paragraphs from a published book or work in progress. You can read some other My Sexy Saturday author posts by clicking here.   My post this morning comes from my soon-to-be-released (July 1) contemporary romantic adventure, Dangerous Descents (first book in the LOVE IN THE LABYRINTHS series).

Here’s the log line… 

Rebecca seeks outdoor adventure work. Kent has the perfect job for her. The Vietnam caving expedition gets crazy when too-hot-to-handle love strikes—along with murderous smugglers.

Here’s my 7 sentences…Things are starting to get hot and heavy between Rebecca and Amanda.

“And why do I make your brain feel like scrambled eggs?” She longed to hear him spell out the details.

“He moistened his sumptuous lips with his tongue and clenched his jaw. “Isn’t it obvious? I find everything about you irresistible. Your beautiful green eyes say you want me, you hair lures me to touch it and your body…don’t get me started. You about gave me a frigging heart attack when you pulled that towel dropping stunt.”

Hump Day Hook – Post 18

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 – quite hot, this one – comes from my soon-to-be-released (July 1) contemporary romantic adventure, Dangerous Descents (Book One in the LOVE IN THE LABYRINTHS series). I’m working on final edits on this as we speak 🙂 

Rebecca seeks outdoor adventure work. Kent has the perfect job for her. The Vietnam caving expedition gets crazy when too-hot-to-handle love strikes—along with murderous smugglers.

 

Kent’s fascination with her body enhanced Rebecca’s arousal and wetness pooled between her thighs. Normally, she’d say no to going any further, tell him she didn’t sleep around, especially on the first date. First date? Is that what you call this?
But Kent wasn’t like any man she’d ever met before. He’d shut down her common sense and stolen every ounce of control.
Grazing her fingertips over edge of his razor-trimmed hair numbed her fingertips and she tugged his face in closer. She wanted to feel his breath on her neck, his body pressed against her, to feel every fiber of his body press into her and through her and come out on the other side.

Here’s the blurb… 
After months holed up in a dreary department store, laid-off outdoor adventure director, Rebecca Devereaux, vows to change her life’s trajectory.

Kent Dunbar believes Vietnam’s Mountain River Cave may be the largest in the world.  He plans a sponsored expedition to survey the cave and learn about its origin. In need of assistants, he sends out a mass email to recruit participants. Kent is pleasantly surprised to receive an application from Rebecca and instantly hires her.

The instant Kent and Rebecca meet, the two find attraction too hot to handle. Soon, every jungle tree and shelf of cave rock becomes a potential place to release their pent up passion for each other. But Kent’s not used to commitment, both are coping with traumatic pasts, and murderous gem smugglers are on the loose near their camp. Will their tumultuous love affair survive?

Here’s my hook. The group has just checked into a dilapidated hotel in Dong Hoi, Vietnam and Rebecca and Kent are a little at odds about the fact that The Science Channel will film them once they reach the cave.

“You can wear makeup and brush your hair if you like,” said Kent with a wry grin. “Not that primping will last long here with frequent downpours and ninety percent humidity.”

“You’re not filming me unless I’ve put a bag over my head first,” said Rebecca. Is he out of his mind? If we get bed bugs in this dump, we’ll probably be scratching our unmentionables whenever the camera swings our way.

Here’s my hook, which is a flashback scene of Rebecca leading a fateful hike to Mt. Wrightson outside Tucson, Arizona.
Rebecca’s muscles tensed as she whipped her head around. Her VIP guest Steve Jones, a famous big-screen star, had crumpled to the ground. She stifled a gasp and rushed to his side, rolled him over and tapped on his chest. Dirt and leaves stuck to his sweaty face. Rebecca’s heart pounded in her chest. Oh my God, this can’t be happening. “Steve, are you all right?” His head fell limply to the side and his usually handsome face flushed to asphyxiation purple. Holy Shit.
