Yoga class after Capri's strange but hot weekend. Daryl Devore's Hot and Hotter on this week's Book Hooks #MFRWhooks #MFRWAuthor #hotread


Book Hooks is a weekly meme hosted by Marketing for Romance Writers as part of the MFRW Authors Blog. It's a chance each week for you the reader to discover current WIP or previously published book by possibly new to you authors.

Today, I am showcasing a snippet from my latest duology release – Hot and Hotter. This is from the 2nd book in the duology – Love My Fate

Scene Set -Capri's best friend hauled her to a sex toy convention. Capri kept hearing a disembodied voice. Then it followed her home. Then - things got very hot. In Capri's world - this is not normal.

I unrolled my yellow yoga mat, sat crossed legged on it and inhaled the serenity of my life. Three days of no disembodied voices speaking to me. Nothing floated across my room. Fire didn’t erupt in my womanly parts.

Well, that part was kind of a bad thing.

But, I did get to spend the whole weekend at my office cleaning up a million little details. The Asian quarterly forecast looked good. Sizeable Christmas bonus. I wiggled my butt against the mat.

"Hey, you." Kat plopped her mat next to mine. "You wouldn't believe the day I had. The Garland quadruplets were in today for their annual checkup. May chaos reign supreme? Why out of all the dentists did…"

Blah. Blah blah blah. That's all I heard.

The touch of her hand on my arm snapped me out of my reverie. "You okay? You totally zoned out. Too tired from spending a weekend at the beach?"

"What?" You know the saying, 'your heart jumps up into your throat'. Well, it really does.

She rubbed my arm. "You look like you got some sun. Tried to call—"

The entrance of Joi, our instructor, cut off Kat's sentence. "Coffee, after class. Your treat." Kat winked and turned her focus to the front.

Yoga is my meditation. I let my thoughts wander. Usually, they flow to my happy place, either a sun-drenched beach with a hot handsome companion or a box filled with dark chocolates. But today, there was no focus. My warrior pose sucked; a baby kitten could have tipped me over. And down dog, let's just not go there. But no, I didn't hurt myself when my hands slipped out from under me and I face planted on the mat.

Thanks for asking.

Some like it hot… others like it HOTTER!  Daryl Devoré has done it again, pairing two of her smoking hot romances into one smouldering book.

What could be simpler than a routine plane trip from Toronto, Canada to Caracas, Venezuela for a rookie flight attendant and a sexy R.C.M.P. officer?

But Fate had other intentions.

After leaving a disastrous marriage, Paix Allcot begins a new career as a flight attendant. First time in her dream job, she is no longer a trainee and the passengers in economy class are under her care. Especially the handsome passenger seated in 36C.

Guy Lapierre, undercover officer, is following a vicious human-trafficker. He has little time for relationships. Too many innocent lives are at stake. Stranded on a tropical island, he is forced to work with Paix to survive until he makes a relationship destroying discovery.

Can a pink bra and a hot night on the side of a volcano save the relationship and their lives?


What's a woman to do when a voice follows her home and makes mad, passionate love to her?

Corporate businesswoman, Capricious Gray, is dragged to a sex toy convention by her best friend. After a mysterious disembodied voice helps her with her purchases, it follows her home. Passion ensues, leaving Capri torn between lust for her fantasy lover and the desperate need for reality in her life.

Thall, son of one of the Fates, harbours the irrepressible need to be with the woman he's desired from afar for years. In order to make her his, once and for all, he must help Capri get past her fears, including the fear of what he represents - a fantasy.

Can fantasy become a reality for these two lovers?
