Teaser Tuesday


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! 


Carla is reading:


"The London train arrives and seems to be waiting for him, ticking politely, but Dexter stands shielded by the plastic carapace of the payphone booth, feels his face crumple inwards and his breath become broken and jagged, and as he starts to cry he tells himself that it‘s just chemical, chemical, chemical."

"Everything Emma knew about adultery had come from TV dramas of the Seventies. She associated it with Cinzano and Triumph TR7s and cheese and wine parties, thought of it as something the middle-aged did, the middle classes mainly; golf, yachts, adultery."


Ania is reading:


"Not that you're dissolute, I mean. I'm sorry, I don't even know you."
"Of course I am," the duke assured her. " Horridly dissolute."
"Even the messy hair fits. And those burgundy lips..." She trailed off, lost for a moment in her memories of Duke Blackmoore and his lips. She shook herself, her dancer's control making the action startlingly erotic.
"He's trouble. The ones with burgundy lips are always trouble."
The duke straightened proudly. " Am I? Sounds devilish and fun. What do I get to do?"
"Wenching. Gambling. Drinking. Dueling. The usual."
"I don't duel. But I could start."
