Marketing for Romance Writers' Books Hooks!

MFRW Authors BlogIt's Wednesday and I'm glad to be participating in the new Marketing for Romance Writers Books Hooks mini hop! (see linky list below) The deal is to post 6-8 sentences from your novel. This time I'm offering a bit from Enchanted Skye.

First my 8, then details follow:
At twenty-three, black-haired, amber-eyed Beatrix MacCodrum was as beautiful as the rest of her kind. She was also a born homemaker, as the Selkie legends foretold. A Selkie woman would keep a lovely home if a man were lucky enough to find and wed one. No doubt this was true for Beatrix, though as yet unwed, she never lacked hopeful suitors. It was only the four of them now in the big house, and called between the sea and land like they were, her brothers came and went.
But not Bea. She’d been caught in a herring net as a child and it nearly killed her. Restless or not, since that incident, Bea preferred the land.

Setting up the scene: Bea's intro. Her brother Alex has just come home after months at sea. She'll soon discover he's fallen under a potentially deadly charm.

 Here's the blurb~

"With the love and humor, there's danger which is written so well and culminates in a wonderful, surprise ending. Enchanted Skye is an outstanding book. "
~Author Jane Leopold Quin
