Teaser Tuesday #15

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*
I LOVE Lynsay Sands. She has such an amazing sense of humor and the last historical novel I read of hers had me in hysterics. From what I've read so far, The Countess is just as funny and I couldn't resist sharing this as a teaser.

"Oh dear, are you going to be sick?" Lisa asked and Christiana noticed that she took a step or two back. Lisa never had been good with illness.
"She probably will," Suzette said dryly. "Just the thought of seeing Dicky naked makes me nauseous."
"Not all of Dicky, just his bottom." Christiana assured her earnestly. "I have to find the strawberry."

In honor of me completing the NaNo challenge, one more teaser from Broken Promises...

“Let me show you Bree. Please”

It was the please that broke me, that had me reaching out to him with my lips and had me opening my mouth as his tongue swept in to taste me. A flash of blinding light seared my mind as the aggression and terror of the last few days was hastily pushed aside and replaced with a burning desire so fierce, it had me gasping with need and frantically trying to pull him as close to me as possible."
