Hump Day Hook!

humpdayhookWelcome to my Hump Day Hook! This is a weekly blog hop where you post ONE paragraph from a WIP or a published work and post it on your blog. You can find other delicious hooks HERE.

It’s been awhile since I posted, but this is a snippet from my recent thriller story THE DARK BOKOR, just on time for Halloween!

TheDarkBokar200It was hard to ignore the fear in Matt’s voice. Jesse held his ground, waited, rocked on the balls of his feet. Every instinct told him to flee, but instead he focused his thoughts on the man. He held up his hand when the dead man reached him and felt the power emanating from the creature, a puppet controlled by someone else. Pity stirred in his heart for the person trapped within the walls of the hoodoo curse.


It’s started. Bodies have been found in the French Quarter, torn limb from limb. The undead have been seen walking. For Detective Matthew Rieves, this is the worst news he can imagine. Having spent his entire life in Orleans Parish, Matt’s no stranger to the bizarre. Though, despite the growing evidence, he still has a hard time believing in the occult. But when two hoodoo bokors vie for supremacy, it’s the innocent civilians that pay the price.

For Jesse Dalembert, he’d left New Orleans to sever his ties with hoodoo. But when a friend is brutally murdered by the bokor’s zombies, he returns, falling at once into danger and into Detective Rieves’s bed. With their lives on the line, their simmering attraction flares into a passion they can no longer deny.

Working against time, can the lovers find a way to stop the hoodoo war, or will they fall victim to the dark magic, maybe becoming zombies themselves?
