Welcome to Book Hooks
Here’s a snippet from my forthcoming novel, Fallen – Book 2 Claimed series:
Who does he think he is? Why was she nearly naked? What a dirt bag, standing there gawking. “What are you doing?”
“Addie, I didn’t—”
“My name is Adeline,” she said between clenched teeth. Finding her shirt on the floor she snatched it up and yanked it over her head then snatched up her jeans and boots.
“Listen, it’s not what you think. Let me explain.”
She halted. This had to be good. She narrowed her eyes, and said, “Make it quick.”
If fury didn’t scald her veins, she’d have laughed. Jack’s gaze lingering on her face as if daring to ease some of the rage boiling through her. She had no qualms about checking him out. He wore a pair of navy briefs and had chiseled muscles all over. Not just his upper body like many men who showed off at any chance they got. Not Jack, he was toned all over. Forget that. Remember you were nearly naked.
She detected the faint whiff of heated musk. What happened? Vague images of caressing and kissing. The feeling of ecstasy, as if his touch nearly brought her to orgasm. Why couldn’t she remember?
No way. No one could bring a succubus pleasure unless the bracelet made her human in that regard. Then if he was one of her kindred, he could make her do whatever he wished. Is that what happened? And when he stopped touching her the power waned?
“Let me explain, I—”
“Bastard, you’re an incubus?” Normally, succubae and incubi didn’t mate as each grappled for sensual energy which left neither satisfied. Only exceptions were half-breeds, but she hadn’t met one of those in centuries.
“A what?” For a fleeting second, a look of understanding crossed his features. So he’d at least heard about her people.

Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends, and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.
