Hump Day Hook No. 17 #HDH

humpdayhookHi everyone and welcome to Hump Day Hook, which is basically where authors post a paragraph from a WIP or a published work to show it off to the world. This week, I’m sharing a snippet from my just released erotic romance novella, A French Affair. It follows on directly from last week’s, so you know what happened next 😉 Next week, I’ll be sharing something different.

The arrival of workmen was incredibly irritating. Her temporary landlord hadn’t mentioned there’d be anyone working next door. If he had, she wouldn’t have booked the place—the quiet and idyllic location were the whole reason for choosing this property, this area. Even though there was no way he could have known she was there to work, common courtesy would dictate that he told her. Perhaps he was just interested in taking her money and didn’t give a damn about whether she had a satisfactory stay or not. There was nothing to be done about it now, unfortunately. She’d paid for the fortnight, and she was buggered if she was going to cut and run, pissing that money down the drain. She’d just have to find a way around the disturbance, and console herself that she could leave a snarky write up on a review site when she got home.

Want more? Of course you do! Here’s the page  for A French Affair. And click here to go and visit the rest of the Hump Day Hook gang. Leave us comments about our pieces – we love it! 🙂

Happy Reading x

    Hmmm…wonder if one of the workmen will make it less of a disturbance and more of a pleasure.

    Yeah, I’m thinking the same thing as Sarah and Sue. Maybe she should go find them and find out. Great hook! Looking forward to reading this story. 🙂

    Ugh, I feel her pain. I live in an apartment, and I’m just disturbed by the staff who cut the grass or blow leaves everywhere, lol. Hope she finds something to distract her from all the noise.
