#ReadMe - Love Redeems (A Redcliffe Novel) by Catherine Green - #HDH

Hello and welcome to the Hump Day Hook. Here is an excerpt from my third book Love Redeems (A Redcliffe Novel), where our reluctant witch Jessica has had a run-in with the alpha werewolf and her wayward animal familiar. As always, the vampires are never far behind when they sense trouble brewing…


I gasped when I found Marcus Scott standing before me.  He was staring at me with interest, his silvery-blue eyes full of curiosity and intrigue.  His skin was pale, and I could see his fangs protruding when he smiled.  I didn’t know whether to smile or snarl at him, given our interaction only a few hours ago.  I was definitely angry.  This whole sorry mess was his fault.
“Why are you here, Marcus?” I asked moodily.
He dropped into a squat before me, staring intently at my face.  I knew that he was trying to decide whether to touch me or not.  I moved away from him, struggling to stand up but making it clear he was not welcome when he reached out to help me.
“I came to see Jack,” Marcus replied, “What happened here?”
He straightened up as I stood, and he gestured to the room.  I realised he could sense the energy that still lingered, and maybe he had seen Jack and Danny.  I wasn’t sure. 
“You,” I said, “That’s what happened.”
“Ah,” he said, “You refer to our liaison earlier.  That was not entirely my fault, Jessica.”

  1. I like her answer when he ask what happened. I can sense that he is not welcome the way you depict her body motion and I can hear her voice in my head.

  3. Wonderfully flowing dialogue. It took me a few lines to realise I was reading first person, as normally they irritate me and I have a hard time reading them. Not so with this snippet. Well done!!

    1. Got you guessing? She intervened in a fight between her lover and his identical twin brother, and her animal familiar 'stepped in!' Thanks for stopping by.
