Teaser Tuesday #9

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading and here's how you play..


Grab your current read and open to a random page. Share a couple of “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 and author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teaser.


*Click on the post title to find my teaser for the week*


Ok this week I'm aware that I FAR surpassed the asked for 2 sentences but I'm reading the sequel to Shades Of Gray (the book I gave my highest rating to, the HALLELUJAH) and I have to say that this book goes WAY beyond that rating for me. This book is incredible - the way the author has written it not only has me seeing and feeling the scenes but I swear at times I could actually hear the characters as they spoke with each other. I'm having such an amazing experience with it that I just had to share a few of my favorite parts (well at least the ones that don't hold spoilers) as teasers. So please forgive me this week ... this book just has me so giddy.


"Jude, you're beginning to upset me, You won't like me when I'm upset."
I couldn't help it. I laughed. Maybe it was the tension, the stress, but I laughed until tears rolled down my face. "Okay, that was just way too funny. "You won't like me when I'm upset? That's straight out of the incredible Hulk. If you're going to be all scary and crazy, you have to have a better tagline."
There was some heavy breathing on the other end and my mind went from the Incredible Hulk to Darth Vader. And then it went completely blank when screams came through the phone line."
                                          - Shades Of Desire, Location 37-44 (Kindle)

"I watched in disbelief as Theo reached  inside his jacket and pulled out a spray bottle.
"Theo, what the hell is that?"
He didn't look concerned at all that I seemed to be questioning his sanity. "Holy water. With a wide spray nozzle."
I blinked once in shock, then grabbed his jacket front and yanked him forward. He managed to catch himself with one hand on the wall behind me while I attacked his mouth with mine. The strangest things could just push my lust button and usually at the strangest of times. Both of us were a little short of breath when I finally pushed him away.
"This is why I love you"
                                            - Shades of Desire / Location 20-26 (Kindle)



Shades Of Desire - A Jude Magdalyn Novel
LM Pruitt / Urban Fantasy / Book 2

All I wanted was a little peace and quiet.

Instead, I've got dead Covenant members and a steady stream of letters from the new guy in town. His beverage of choice? A 2002 Merlot, with a shot or two of powerful virgin blood. On top of that, I'm breaking in a new police liaison, failing at playing matchmaker, and fighting nausea like it's a full time job. Did I forget to mention that I've also got enough girls living at the Crossroads to start my own boarding school?



Exciting news is Shades Of Desire is set to be released November 2nd 2010  
and to celebrate,  author L.M. Pruitt will be visiting my blog as part of her book tour.
She'll be here this coming Sunday (October 31st) to share her thoughts about her
books and the amazing characters readers will find there. So come by and check it out. L.M. Pruitt is definitely an author to watch out for.
