This week we showcase romance in the Hump Day Hook. Here is an excerpt from my second Redcliffe novel, Love Kills (A Redcliffe Novel):
“This is all for you, Jessica,” Danny said, “I can no longer deny my feelings for you.”
My heart skipped a beat and the room spun around me. It was nothing to do with the whiskey. I swallowed nervously, again glancing from Jack to Danny. My boyfriend was silent at my side, and I was aware of Simon standing just in front of the desk.
“W-what do you mean?” I asked shakily.
Danny placed his hands on my knees, and I sat rigid, unable to move. Suri stirred again within me. I was aware of her lifting her head, surveying the scene with interest. I could hear her thinking how useful this situation could be to her. She pleaded again for me to allow her release.
“Not now, Suri,” I whispered, and Danny looked at me sharply.
“Your tiger is here,” he said with a faint smile, “I can feel her. She wants me. Do you want me, Jessica?”
I licked my lips nervously. Yes, I wanted Danny, and it terrified me. How could I do this to Jack? Surely I could not be in love with two men. It wasn’t possible. Well, maybe it wasn’t love. But I certainly felt something for Danny, and I could no longer deny it. He knew. He stared at me with growing comprehension, and his expression grew triumphant.
