For now, here is the Hump Day Hook taken from my debut novel Love Hurts (A Redcliffe Novel). Don't forget you can read the whole novel for free on Wattpad for a limited time only, check it out!
“Marcus stop!” I cried, “Please stop, you’re hurting me!”
I was suddenly in a blind panic as he lifted his head, his face pale, and his eyes wild. He opened his mouth and I tried to scream. He was going to bite me!
Suddenly he was flung away and slammed into the ground across the car park. I saw Danny standing before me. He glared at Marcus.
“What did we tell you?” he yelled, “She is with Jack; she is not yours to take. Leave us!”
Marcus smoothly stood and put a hand to his mouth where he was bleeding from Danny’s punch. He smiled and sauntered away without a word. Danny turned back to me.
“Are you alright, Jessica?” he asked, “Did he hurt you?”
Tears sprang to my eyes. I felt so foolish, so stupid. If I hadn’t gotten drunk I could have stopped this from happening. Danny‘s expression was full of concern.
“Hey it’s all right.” he said softly, “Look, come inside and I’ll get you some water and find Jack.”
Dramatic, isn't he? Marcus is a brilliant vampire, and he certainly throws a spanner in the works when he makes an appearance. You can see more of him in my second novel Love Kills (A Redcliffe Novel) and in my upcoming third release Love Redeems (A Redcliffe Novel).
