Hump Day Hook No. 7 #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 Off the Shelf, as it’s been nominated at The Romance Reviews’ Best Book of 2012 in theΒ Best Erotic Romance – Contemporary Romance category! I’d love your votes, if you’re so inclined. The voting page is here.

Annalise hated leaving her favourite toy behind when she went away, but she just wasn’t brave enough to take it with her. She usually only took carry-on luggage, and the very thought of the distinctive shape of the Rampant Rabbit popping up on the screen of the airport scanners made her shudder. It would be bad enough for the staff to see it on their monitors, knowing what it was and giving her knowing looks; imagine what would happen if they decided to check inside her bags! She would want to curl up and die of embarrassment, she just knew it.

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

Happy Reading x

    Great hook! Um, yeah, some toys are more distinctive than others…Though you can find some that are disguised to look like something else, designed especially for discretion πŸ™‚
