This little snippet is from my current work-in-progress Duchess of War, the full-length sequel to Of Hallowed Fiends and Darkest Fortune from Naughty Nights Press. Last time on Hump Day Hook we saw Anya on the horrible "morning after," afraid to get out of bed for fear she'd wake her new husband. Now she's been tended to, given painkillers, and left to rest by herself in her new rooms as Duchess.
Anya shut her eyes, counted to ten, and opened them again. The same bed curtains hung overhead, cracked just a little to let a smidge of light in.
She shut her eyes and counted to one hundred, wishing the entire time she would finally wake up and be home. It never worked. In her dank cell, she had counted to ten thousand and still it had not worked.
This little piece always makes me so sad when I read it! I hope you enjoyed the Hump Day Hook at The Printed Fox! For more hooks, go to the HDH Blog, join the group on Facebook or sign up in the Linky list below! Happy Humping!
