Hump Day H00k ~ Looking at Sunsets #HDH for Mar. 13

Hi all! Wow. Another week's come and gone, and we're back to Hump Day Hook where authors share snippets from their stories. :)
I'm currently doing edits on my third 1NightStand story, Sunset Temptations, so I thought I'd share a bit from my first installment. The following comes from Sunset Desires book 1 of my Sunset series for Decadent Publishing's 1NS series. Enjoy!

* Gwen shook her head. “No. Just a little nervous is all.” To calm down she sucked in a humid stream of air, bringing with it the heady scents of sand, sun, and surf mixed with the aromas of bar food and beer. Though the sun dipped toward the horizon, the heat still stuck around. The warmth didn’t bother her, but her anxiety about the upcoming situation did. Heather had asked some pretty personal questions. At the time, she’d figured her cousin had grown lonely—too much work, not enough socializing, and probably wanted a better connection with family, a friend. But now…. Despite the high temperature, a chill racked her body. “Oh my God, that fantasy question. You told a total stranger about my fantasy?” Her high-pitched squeal rose above the clamor of the bar.

Please don't forget to stop by and read the other authors participating in this week's HDH ~ http://humpdayhook.blogspot.co.uk

Great setting description. I've been to a bar on the beach and it took me back there right away. And what a dirty trick for a cousin/friend to play! Hopefully, it works out in her favor. ;) Nice hook.
