Teaser Tuesdays (60)


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at 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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Teaser 1:

"How on earth, she wondered, could she avoid the flirtatious earl for the duration of her stay at court? She had not forgotten his temper and did not want to be near when the fuse was lit by unpleasant memories of her father."

Synopsis:

Ellie—Lady Eleanor Rodriguez, Countess of San Jaime—possesses a worthless title, but her feisty spirit captivates the elite of the Queen's court—especially the dashing new Earl of Dorset.
William Lacey, Earl of Dorset, has inherited his father's title—and his financial ruin. Now Will must seek a wealthy bride and restore his family's fortune. If only he hadn't fallen for the beautiful but penniless Ellie . . .

Sparks fly whenever Ellie and Will are together, but circumstances—and the conniving interference of others—threaten to keep them apart.



The Other Countess by Eve Edwards
p.17




Teaser 2:


"My pack was ready to fight, and I was ready to let them-but whoever the intruder was, he never crossed the threshold of the door. There was a loud thump outside, like a duffel bag being dropped onto cement, and then a high-pitched gargle-half choke, half whine-filled the air. Blood."


Trial By Fire by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
p.37

Synopsis:


There can only be one alpha. Bryn is finally settling into her position as alpha of the Cedar Ridge Pack—or at least, her own version of what it means to be alpha when you’re a human leading a band of werewolves. Then she finds a teenage boy bleeding on her front porch. Before collapsing, he tells her his name is Lucas, he’s a Were, and Bryn’s protection is his only hope. But Lucas isn’t part of Bryn’s pack, and she has no right to claim another alpha’s Were. With threats—old and new—looming, and danger closing in from all sides, Bryn will have to accept what her guardian Callum knew all along. To be alpha, she will have to give in to her own animal instincts and become less human. And, she’s going to have to do it alone. Bryn faces both the costs, and the rewards, of love and loyalty, in this thrilling sequel to Raised by Wolves.

I haven't read very much of either of these books but they are both good so far! The Other Countess is one I've wanted to read for a long time so I couldn't wait even though I'm already reading Trial By Fire.

  6. Both great teasers, but I really liked the time period that The Other Countess is set in, so I will definitely have to add that one to my TBR. I am such a sucker for historical fiction.
