Teaser Tuesday: No. 6

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!
It's summer and I'm participating in the 2011 Summer Romance Challenge, so like last week, this week's teaser will be coming from a romance novel! I'm currently reading The Taming of the Rake* by Kasey Michaels and I'm enjoying it. I've not had as much time to read lately as usual, or at least not my usual reading, as I'm embarking this week on researching and writing my thesis introduction, as well as studying for my comprehensive exams. Ah grad school, can't even escape it in the summer! So, without further ado...


"I'll take that as a yes," Beau said, looking longingly at the wine decanter. "How long before he misses you and comes racing hotfoot over here, brandishing a pistol, and demanding I present myself?"

Chelsea glanced assessingly at the mantel clock. "We should probably be going."
*Expected publication date for this novel is July 26th. This tiny excerpt comes from the eARC and is subject to change before publication. Review forthcoming.


  1. I love your teaser. A sense of humor is good. My teaser this week is at http://lisaisabookworm.blogspot.com/2011/06/teaser-tuesday.html

  2. Right now I am pretty much stuck on YA fiction, but I'm not gonna lie-- I love romance novels! It's my guilty pleasure ;) Hope you are enjoying this one, and have fun with the Summer Romance Challenge!

  3. Heyas! So I should tell you, you're my favorite person of the week/month/year/EVER! I say this because you are my first official follower that I don't know, haha. Really, you made my day!

    Also, I won't lie, I have a secret love of romance novels on occasion. Why is it that so many of us can't openly admit to our love of them?

    Thank goodness I'm not the only having not read the Mortal Instrument series. I'd say give it a try, I'm enjoying it so far!
