It's Wednesday -- time for the HUMP DAY HOOK, a weekly blog meme where authors post a tempting portion of their writing.

Follow this link for a complete listing of this week's participants:
Hump Day Authors. And you can find links to these posts on twitter using the hashtag #HDH.

My excerpt today comes from book 2 in The Witchy Wold and the Wendigo tale.

Setting the Stage:  Knowing Eli comes for him, Ash takes Livie north to the reservation where John's family can keep her safe. But first, he stops at his old cave for a few possessions from his old life.

My Hook:
Seeking to build a new memory, she twined her arms around him and kissed him. Intimate caresses followed kisses and soon both were absorbed in their newfound love. 

His hand slid inside her jeans but she stayed it. Drawing back, he searched her face. He was confused by her refusal when it was obvious she wanted him as badly as he wanted her. 

She kissed him sweetly. “I want this as much as you do but I know we need to get on the road. I’ll take a rain check, though.”

His hand delved deeper and discovered how hot and slick she was. Rekindled desire made his words husky as he said, “We may not have rain for days, my heart.”

Suppressing a giggle she rolled from his touch. Lest he feel self-conscious about not grasping the nuance of his new language, she played along as though her slang meant exactly what the words described. “I hadn’t thought of that. You can make love to me rain or shine, but right now we have somewhere to go.” 

“You’re right.” Seeing the truth in her words, he rose and extended his hand. Enfolding her in his arms, he promised softly, “I have no words to describe how you make me feel my love, but I will show you soon … rain or shining sun.”

Here's the story

"The Native American lore is engrossing and obviously the result of deep, respectful research. And, as usual, Ms. Anderson's love scenes are sweet, funny, sensual, and fulfilling for Ash and Olivia, as well as the reader."
~ Author Jane Leopold Quinn
