Hump Day Hook

Currently Reading:  Finished Public Secrets and it was okay.  Despite my issues with the font size of the paperback, I seemed to be reading this book to 'get through it'.   I enjoyed the main plot idea, but this is not going to be one of my favorite Nora titles.  I also read an HQ book in the series 'Born in the USA', of which I own three or four titles.  This one was New York, and entertaining.  I did want to shake the heroine for not asking questions; she did a great deal of 'assuming', and we all know what happens when people do THAT! Still, I loved the scenes between the hero and the heroine's adopted child.  Now reading This Calder Range by Janet Daily and I'm sorry to say I'm doing a great deal of skimming.  I thoroughly enjoyed reading This Calder Sky (Under A Calder Sky?) several years ago, and this one's not living up to my expectations.

Anyway, on with today's post!


As always, check out more Hump Day Fun here:)

I'm still waiting for cover art for #6, Searching For Love, so thought I'd tease you with an excerpt.  Enjoy:)

(Steph attended a party at her new friend Jodie's house and observed some unusual behavior  She decides to ask Jodie about it the next day after class):


An hour later, as they were exiting the gym, Stephanie summoned her courage.  “Are Daphne and Laura gay?”
            “Oh my, yes.”  Jodie laughed.  “That was the big deal?  They liked you.”
            “But Jodie, I’m straight.  I like guys.  I’m not like that.”
            “I know.”  Jodie stopped walking.  “Look, all I wanted to do was invite you over for a movie and dinner, like you said was your type of celebration.  No big deal.”
            “And Brandon and Curtis?”  Despite the chill in the air, Steph felt her cheeks grow hot.
            “Stephanie, so am I.”
