Hump Day Hook 3

Read more Hump Day Hooks here
Heat up Hump Day with a tantalizing hook for readers...a challenge I take with a group of other authors.

Here's an excerpt from from Chapter 5 of THE PRINCE CHARMING HOAX. We join the conversation as Roxie tells Leah about a interesting afternoon drive she took with a sexy man she met earlier in the day at a construction site.
Roxie gave a low, throaty laugh. “It was like nothing I’ve done before. There we were at the last place he was showing me before heading back, and suddenly he drives his truck around the back of the house on a narrow road that must be a service entry to the property and pulls his truck alongside a guest cottage. We were kind of out of view from the buildings. He doesn’t say a word. He just leans over the console and pulled me to him. And, to tell you the truth, I’m not sure how it happened, but suddenly we were in the back seat of the cab pulling off our clothes and groping each other like two high school kids. I was crouched down on the floor between his legs with his fingers inside me. My mouth’s around his cock, and suddenly we hear voices outside the truck.”

Sneak Peek Sunday 4

This week's Sneak Peak is from chapter 15 of THE PRINCE CHARMING HOAX.

“Get out. Get the fuck out.” Leah pushed Tom out of her room and slammed the door. She listened to the sound of his boots on the steps as he made his way down the stairs and out the front door. She heard him gun his engine and pull out of her life forever.

Leah leaned her forehead against the door she just slammed and wrapped her arms around herself. She felt like she needed to hold herself together. If she didn’t, her insides were going to fall out. When she couldn’t hold on any longer, she turned and slid down to the floor. She pressed her back against the door, trying to keep the pain out, but she lost the battle. She grabbed one of the throw pillows that had fallen near the door and held it against her chest with her bent knees. Rocking back and forth with her arms wrapped around her knees, Leah cried until she felt there was nothing left inside her.

Hump Day Hook 2

No "official" Hump Day Hook today, but I'm still posting a snippet from chapter 13 of THE PRINCE CHARMING HOAX.

Roxie recognized the physical sensation she was feeling was the excitement she craved. She glanced down and saw her nipples were hard, standing up pertly through the soft fabric of her blouse. She felt moist between her legs and knew she was ready.

“The hell with the food. Let’s get into that hot tub.” Having said that, she was out of her clothes in an instant. D.J. kissed her hard, then released the drawstring of his pants, pulled his shirt over his head, and grabbed her hand as they joined the party outside.

Sneak Peak Sunday 3

This week, the Sneak Peek is from Chapter 3 of THE PRINCE CHARMING HOAX, when Roxie meet D.J...

Shielding her eyes from the sun’s glare, Roxie could make out a big, black pickup approaching fast. The truck stopped short only inches from her, kicking up a cloud of dust and gravel. She caught a glimpse of the workman who had just left behind the wheel. As he got out of the cab, their eyes locked and her heart raced. As he came toward her, she had a momentary flash of him tossing her Boxster in the back of his truck, picking her up, throwing her in the cab, and driving off.

Hump Day Hook

Heat up Hump Day with a tantalizing hook for readers...a challenge I take with a group of other authors.

Here's an excerpt from from Chapter 22 of THE PRINCE CHARMING HOAX where we join Roxie Stein in the shower:

Before rinsing, Roxie took her specially formulated feminine cleansing lotion off the shelf. Squirting some in her palm, she began to gently wash between her legs. She closed her eyes and leaned against the cool tile of the shower stall. She rotated her fingers over her sensitive area, letting her body wake up inside as well as out. She pressed the small of her back against the tile and rotated her hips as she felt her juices flowing. Moaning, she placed two fingers of one hand inside herself, while reaching for the handheld extension of the showerhead with the other. The pulsating pressure of the jets between her legs and the friction of her fingers brought her close to orgasm, but she wasn’t quite there. Growing impatient, she wrapped her legs around the showerhead, pressing it hard against herself with the jets directed at the pleasure points. “Yes, yes, yes. Finally!” she shrieked.
Now that you've to your juices flowing, be sure to hop over and read some more Hump Day Hooks!

Sneek Peek Sunday 2

Continuing the sneak peek from Chapter 9 of THE PRINCE CHARMING HOAX...

They fell asleep with her snuggled under his arm, her head on his chest. It was pitch black in the room when Leah sat up suddenly, gripped with terror. She wasn’t sure where she was at first, but when her eyes adjusted to the darkness, she saw Jonathan on the bed next to her and relaxed.
He was stirring. “Do you feel all right, Leah? You’ve been tossing around for hours.”
“Hold me Jonathan. Hold me until I fall asleep again.”
He pulled her to him, but this time the snuggling wasn’t enough for Leah. She needed more. She pulled his hand down between her thighs and reached for him.
“Are you sure, Leah?”
Leah was trembling. “Oh yes. I’m sure. I need this now.”

New Cover Reveal!

Well, today's the day! New cover, new print edition, revised ebook. 

Purchase on Amazon, KindleSmashwords
11 Reviews • 4.5 Stars on Amazon • “Snappy dialogue, erotic sex” “Fun, contemporary read”

THE PRINCE CHARMING HOAX is the steamy hot and often funny story of best friends Leah Gold and Roxanne Stein, two boomer women trying to break free of the “happily ever after” fairy tale myth of their childhoods. Abandoned by her latest Prince Charming on the eve of what she expected to be the start of a new life, Leah begins an introspective journey through her past for answers. When she discovers what really stands between her and happiness, she sets off on a mission to help spare other women the pain of looking for love in all the wrong places—even though she knows her crusade may just be a battle that destroys her real prince. In contrast to the reclusive Leah, Roxie teeters on the edge of self-destruction as she tries to satisfy her unquenchable thirst for excitement. Drugs and sex don't diminish her cravings, and the man she falls for, while charming, is no prince. Once they team up on a crazy trip from their South Florida home to Philadelphia and New York, the duo stumble onto how to save themselves, each other, and perhaps womankind—a surprise to everyone, especially themselves.
