Tuesday Teaser/Teaser Tuesday #6

Tuesday Teaser is a weekly meme hosted by 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!

"Rahab chose carefully, and only one lover at a time. She was stinting in her acceptance of men. Her clients were few, but generous. Her unusual selectiveness enhanced her popularity among men of higher classes. Each wanted to be chosen over the others. Rahab became the competition they sought to win."
~Pearl in the Sand by Tessa Afshar

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 set in 1945.

“Oh, don’t bother. I’m brave. I’ll go first and give you a precedent to steel your nerves.”

Before he could say a word, she popped the octopus in her mouth. She didn't flinch. Instead, she chewed a few quick bites before opening her mouth, wide. Charlie’s eyes nearly popped from their sockets at the site of the tentacle inching around on her tongue--standing on end at times--before flopping over her bottom lip.

“It’s trying to get out!” Charlie laughed as he leaned in closer; his stomach rebelling.



  1. They're both captivating...I think I'll participate in that second one sometime soon.
