Tuesday Teaser/Teaser Tuesday #3

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Here are the rules: Grab your current read. Open to a random page. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page, and BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!) Share the title & author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!



"Don't tease, Alice, and don't fall--" Her friend, Louise Renee grabbed Alice's gown, for by now Alice was leaning over the edge at a dangerous angle, the feet in her dainty satin shoes on tiptoe."

Dark Angels by Karen Koen





And now, for my Tuesday Teaser...inspired by i swim for oceans. If you are writer, take a line from your current WIP or published piece. This is a line from my novel, When The Night Is New.



"She shook her head, a sweet smile on her lips. “You’re a good man, Captain Dalton,” she breathed, standing on the tips of her toes to press a kiss to his lips. Her hands moved; one sliding to the back of his head to pull it down to her own. Her other hand lay flat on his chest with fingers splayed over his heart."

  1. Both teasers were real teasers, esp. the last one out of your book.
    Thanks for the visit to My Reading Corner.

  3. Both teasers involve tiptoes! Really liked the first one, sounds a little tense.

  5. Here's a teaser from my novel Behind Green Glass:

    "He ran through the forest, dodging pine trunks with practiced ease, leaping over hidden boulders and brooks. As he ran, a kaleidescope of images danced before his eyes: Meredith's full bloodless lips on the day she died; Nola's tattered wings like glistening fishnets held up to the sun...the place on Isolde's neck where her pulse visibly throbbed as she spoke the truth." (p.78)

  10. @Laurel-Rain Snow, That is awesome! Gia is such an unusual name. I used to hate that people would call me Gia, but now it is all I go by. :) Too much like 'chia pet'. ;)

  12. PS: No, my book did not lead to a sex scene. It was kiss goodnight. A very tender kiss. :)
