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.
Today’s Hump Day Hook comes from my new exotic romantic adventure, NEVER LET YOU GO; to be released later today. Here’s the blurb:
For ten years, Sydney and her husband, Craig, tried to have a baby without success. Sydney is devastated when Craig tells her he’s met someone else. Desperate to escape, she books a flight to the Bocas del Toro Islands in Panama. She hopes the remote location will help her cope with being abandoned and her lost dream of becoming a mother. Her spontaneous decision brings about a surprising change in the course of her life.
My hook today explores the beginning of romance of another kind, between a woman and a baby boy, who under unusual circumstances, is about to become Sydney’s own child.
Tears streamed down Sydney’s face, mingling with splashing seawater. Sydney took the baby boy from Tiffany’s arms. The blanket unraveled around him, revealing a soggy white T-shirt, decorated with red and blue bears and snapped between his chubby legs. Sydney wrapped him in the blanket and clutched him to her chest. “I have him. You just rest.” He felt so warm nestled there and for a moment, peace like she’d never experienced before settled over her. Kevin stopped sobbing, and his velvet soft nose brushed against her neck.
