HUMPDAY HOOK~11~

 
 
Welcome to another HDH and happy Hump Day to you! This week, I'm gonna try and hook you on my new wip, Temperatures Rising as Dating Impossible, book 2 of my Dating Series was contracted by Evernight Publishing and I hope to have a cover and release date for you all soon! This is a different story from last week's hook as I got sucked into the characters right away.  My plan is to submit this for Evernight's Cupid's Conquest Line.  My heroine a bartender who is a nursing student gets her first glimpse of the hero...
 
           As she placed a napkin on the gleaming wood in front of him, his green gaze swept the length of her.  Anne could swear she heard the heat radiating off her skin with a crackle and hiss.  Sort of like the breakfast cereal. Boy, would she like to snap, crackle and pop with this guy!  She chuckled, coming down off the momentary high that often accompanied the sight of a gorgeous hunk of man in her vicinity.  “Welcome to Jolly’s.  What can I get you?”
         
Hope you enjoyed! Please don't forget to stop by and read the other author's participating in this week's HDH here:
