Hump Day Hook from WIP Seaside Seduction

By | August 14, 2013

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.

This little excerpt is from my WIP, SEASIDE SEDUCTION. The story is written entirely from the male point-of-view.

Two spouts of water shot into the air, thinning into a mist in the wind. Sudden movement in the lowest quadrant of my binoculars caught my attention. It’s awkward efforts contrasted sharply with the fluid flow of dolphins, whales, turtles and other aquatic creatures I was accustomed to seeing. It must be a struggling swimmer. The receding tide had exposed blocks of previously submerged granite. I focused my binoculars on the movement, zooming in on a head of long dark hair. I could tell by the way her hands splashed frantically and her head periodically dipped beneath the waves that the woman was in trouble. I jumped up from my chair, my muscles tensed and readied.
