Teaser Tuesday #4

teaser tuesdayOne of the fun parts of taking part in blog hops (aside from getting to visit new to me blogs) is finding great ways to interact with other book lovers.  This is one:

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• 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 TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

(I know, it’s longer than two sentences – but it’s so worth it  Forgive this one?  😉 )

And then he frowned , because there was no pulsing warmth oozing now. No sticky residue on his skin. His fingers probed, and then he bowed his head, staring at his bared chest. His clean bared chest.

No blood . No wound. He blinked, pressing both hands to his chest now, moving them, pressing again, searching for the bullet hole. It had seemed gaping before. Maybe it was just smaller than it seemed.

“There’s nothing there, Duncan ,” Arianna said. “You died. Right there on the floor. We cleaned you up, and put you on the couch. In less than an hour the wound healed and you revivified . You’re alive now, and there’s no hole in your chest because you’re immortal.”

He gaped at her, then stared up at Raven. “I know it’s shocking the first time,” she whispered. “I know how difficult this is for you to believe. But, Duncan, we didn’t mean to. Arianna was aiming at me–”

“Oh, but this is so much better. Really drives the point home.”

This is the novel the tease is from:

But as he awakens to the passion of his past life, so too does the evil that tore them apart. Now Raven and Duncan must prove their love for all eternity…

    Hi Laura,

    No, not threatening – more like ironic. The speaker is Raven’s older sister, a witch and the one who shot Duncan to prove to him that he is indeed immortal…. he’s a man, he was being stubborn. 😉

    Thanks for visiting 🙂

    I often think that I buy books for the covers as much as for the story between them. 🙂 And yes, it is beautiful – I wouldn’t mind walking along that coastline one bit.

    Thanks for visiting 🙂

      Hi Karen,

      I fell in love with Maggie Shayne’s style of delivering a story back in her “Wings in the Night” Silhoutte time, so I’ve been reading Maggie for quite awhile now. (the Twilight for grown up girls – her motto not mine) – now her novels are just an auto-buy for me.

      Thanks for visiting 🙂
