Hump Day Hook 2/6

This is a blog hop where participants share one paragraph from a WIP or finished book. For the entire list of participants click on this link. My paragraph is from my soon to be released novella, Valkyrie Slumbering:

“Let me buy ye lunch then,” Grím suggests as he grasps my hand, slowing down my pace. His hand encases mine completely. My first instinct is to yank away and be free of him, but I stop at the last moment. His grip is light, and though his hand is rough, callused from wielding a sword, it is gentle. In its own way, that is just as scintillating as his probing tongue was a moment ago.

I hope you enjoyed the sneak peek, don't forget to check out the others! Check us out on Twitter at the #HumpDayHook hashtag. By the way, if you're a writer and you haven't participated in this hop, I highly recommend it. Humpers, if you stop by and comment or follow, I'll be sure to do the same!
