This is my first go with Teaser Tuesday, a blog meme hosted by MizB on Should Be Reading. It looked so much fun, I couldn’t resist. In fact, I did two!
Grab your current read. Let the book fall open to a random page. Share (2) “teaser” sentences from that page. Share the title & author of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR list if they like your teaser. Please avoid spoilers!
So here are my two Tuesday Teasers:
She leaned over the small dining table, telling herself it was because she didn’t want to be overheard– not because she wanted to be closer to him, inhale the spicy cologne that made her want to sniff, then bite.
The Way You Love Me
Only a fool would sit back and do nothing with this windfall. Getting to know the Volnoth King, by spending a couple of months in close quarters with him — and appearing to do him a favour — while keeping a close eye on him during this crisis in his marriage, seemed like a Machiavellian-Princely thing to do.
Added: I removed a couple of sentences from the second teaser! 🙂 I had gone overboard with not just doing two, but writing far too much. Well, that’s what excitment does for you.
And tomorrow I have a meme of my own, for Wednesdays! Please do pop in and take a look.
ADDED Wednesday, 3rd June: Author, Rowena Cherry has very kindly pointed out to me that my teaser from Knight’s Fork came from p. 169 of the paperback version that most people can obtain. Where as I was lucky enough to be quoting from the Advance Review Copy, where the print was smaller and the pages larger. So, p 134 might mystify anyone nipping into a library or bookstore to check on it. Apologies to any confused readers out there! 🙂
Thinking about it, the same may be true for my other teaser…The Way You Love Me by Francis Ray. Oops!
