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 (August 1) contemporary romantic adventure, The Unseen (Book 2 in the LOVE IN THE LABYRINTHS series). I’m working on edits on this as we speak 🙂
Here’s the short blurb:
After three tourists are murdered, Kent Dunbar pretends to abandon his Vietnam caving expedition so Rebecca Devereaux will be clear of danger and enlists the help of some men who served with his father in the Vietnam War. But Rebecca has other plans.
In this scene, Rebecca and Kent have just reunited and he’s left to meet with the soldiers about to launch an attack on the gemstone smugglers.
A crash of thunder made her jump. She’d always feared the dark. Kent should be back by now. As she slipped on jeans and a T-shirt, another flash of lightning caused the lights to flicker and go out. “Oh, great, no power.”
She thought she heard the knob jiggle. “Kent, is that you?” Again, there was no answer. She ducked behind the rickety table when the door creaked open. She peered out into the dimly lit hallway, but no one was there. Then why do I hear footsteps? Goosebumps crept up her neck.
If you’d like to download Book 1, Dangerous Descent so you’ll be ready to read this one by release day, it’s available on Amazon.
