Teaser Tuesday #13

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* 



Here's a teaser from the book I just started today.





"There is just something about you I can't seem to resist," she confessed in a whisper, feeling a little safer in the deep shadow, out of the lamplight, and felt her heart grow heavy from the loneliness"








So I don't think this is cheating. Technically I know I'm writing it BUT rereading it to edit it counts right? *gathers courage to share* Here's a few teasers from my NaNo novel Broken Promises.



*this is just a mock book cover I designed for inspiration when my brain doesn't want to work. Isn't it pretty?*









"Please tell me you weren't thinking of touching my knobs." I blurted out before I realized what I'd said. Stammering with a hot blush burning across my face, I grimaced and quickly added, "The dial, the dial." I gave up trying to convince him as the sound of Quinn's deep throaty laugh filled the car"


"He chuckled as he took the book, clearly not worried about what he would find. He began to read but must have skimmed ahead because the next sound out of his mouth was one of him choking, followed closely by his face turning a mottled kind of red. The look on his face was priceless."


"Absolute terror struck me, causing my heart to bang relentlessly inside my chest, any numbness completely gone. I was feeling again and for the second time that night I knew I was going to die."


Come back on Wednesday 17th because I'm participating in
the Gratitude Giveaway Blog Hop and I've chosen the
 first 3 books in the Sookie Stackhouse series to giveaway.
Make sure you enter for your chance to win!!

I love the teasers from your current read, don't really need to overwork the imagination to see where they are heading!

I love your mock up cover and the lines you have written so far, they are great.

Prefer your book's teaser to the first one! Enchanted seems over wrought to me.

My teaser is from an alternative history novel with dragons, napolean and War --> e-Volving Books
