Hump Day Hook - Authors showcasing their work on Hump Day!
Welcome to Hump Day Hook, a weekly list of authors showcasing their work around the Internets. A big thanks to the wonderful peeps at Hump Day Hook for making this possible.

Right, on with the hook itself! A blast from the past and a smidge from ENSLAVED, my very first published book!

Enslaved Cassandra Dean Decadent Publishing Roman Series
“But I wanted you, Lucia.” Marcus tucked my hair behind my ear and his hand rested warm against my cheek. “I would have given anything to take you away, to save you from hurt. I still would.”

Finally, I thought what to say. “It has been eight years. More. How can you…It has been eight years.”

“I have not wavered.” His eyes were steady on mine. His hand was so very warm.

As if in a dream, I reached up and cradled his hand in both of mine. Closing my eyes, I turned to kiss his palm. His other hand smoothed my hair, trailing over my shoulder, down my spine. Leaning into his touch, I shivered with emotion that finally, after all these years, he was touching me.

My hand slid up his forearm, tracing the muscles I found there. He turned my face to his, and I opened my eyes to find his gaze upon me, soft and warm and hard all at the same time. My hand moulded his shoulder as he cupped the back of my head.

We kissed.
