Time for a Hump Day Hook! Today’s piece is from my recent release, Midnight Incantation, a paranormal/horror erotica short.
Untouched by moonbeams, seeming to absorb the nacreous light, the demon stood black and infinite, taking in the small, mundane—oh, so human—details of the room. A porn star calendar hung above the desk, two muscled young men engrossed in each other’s cock. Escher postcards stood at angles in the mirror’s frame. Crimson eyes moved toward Jason. He lay face down on the bed where the cotton sheet cowered over his legs, and the moon’s light edged the fine hairs on his arms and neck. Making a casual gesture with a scaled hand, the intruding spirit froze the bolt of the door in the jamb. Jason would not be leaving for a while.
Midnight Incantation is available at All Romance eBooks, Amazon and Rainbow eBooks.

‘Til next time!
Descriptive. 🙂 Good paragraph!
Oooh, I like demons…and beautiful men…especially together. 😉 Great hook, you got my attention. I’ll be off to check out the book now…
Glad you liked it , Jade!
A wonderful snippet, Cee. Dark and alluring attention grabber. I loved reading it.
Thanks for reading, Ciaran!
Hee, hookers and humpers!
This is a very chilling snippet. I like the confidence shown in the leisurely pace of the demon and the little details of the room are very and tragically human. I already fear for Jason.
Glad I succeeded with dark and creepy!
Wonderful snippet…the details are so real and gritty. Great job.
Thanks for the support, Michelle!
wonderful description and hook! 🙂
Glad you stopped by, Jessica!
The description of the demon is wonderful…and I’m both scared and curious to find out what happens next…
Good! Thanks for commenting, Sarah!
Ooh, I fear for Jason’s safety (and sanity!) Love the description, I must read more…
Yeaaaah… he’s not quite the same after this. Thanks, Catherine!
Hmm… just what does he have planned? Looking forward to finding out.
Oh, we’ll see… Thanks, Cerian!
Chilling!!! Vivid imagery and set up! Brilliant!
Thanks so much, Kathleen!
I think this is the first time I’ve read your stuff. I’m sorry if I have missed your hooks in the past. Loved your writing and description. What a great hook!
Just joined! Thanks, Jennifer!
Great imagery – I esp liked the juxtaposition of the two me in the porn calendar with the Escher postcards.
That was pretty much my dorm room in college! Thanks for stopping and reading, Colette!
