Teaser Tuesday (33)

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish 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 what you share doesn't give too much away! You don't want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title and the author too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers.

I'm going to do things just a little bit differently this week. As many of you know I read and review several books each week. So I decided to put up a teaser from each book. Let me know in your comment... If you like it this way or not???

Foresight by Sherry Ficklin, page 38. " Lilith pulled a glowing orb from the folds of her skirt. It was small, no larger than her fist, and glowing ever so dimly with yellow light. "

Gerry Tales by Gerry Boylan, page 111. ' "Now," I said, "you'll need to be careful not to get your fingers anywhere near the hook or weights. In fact, at the very last second, just before the weights smash into the hook, just let go. Can you do that sweetie?" '

Letters From Sweetwater by Dr. Dale Garland, page 209. "Then what about the billions and billions of people who never even heard of Jesus Christ, much less know His name; what about them? They's people now, good honest people, who have no idea that such a man ever existed."

Almost to Die For by Tate Hallaway, page 181. "I was still so very confused about how I felt about him. He scared me. He excited me. His violence disturbed me, but his compassion touched me."

Choosing to See by Mary Beth Chapman, with Ellen Vaughn, page 57. "Steven has always responded to life's challenges and hurts through his music. Certainly this was the case with the pain of his parents' divorce. Their breakup was a wake up call, a catalyst, to say to me that he would not leave me, that in spite of the difficulties we faced, whatever came, we would be together."

Radiant Daughter by Patricia Grossman, page 219. " Standing in front of a row of cages, looking on silently as a zebra emptied his bladder - a seemingly endless affair - Milo arrived at a strategy. Whatever its worth, it was his single plan: he had no backup."

To Tame a Dangerous Lord by Nicole Jordan, page 267. "Judging that enough time had passed for him to safely return home, Rayne penned his new wife a note, saying to expect him early Tuesday afternoon, nearly a week after taking their nuptial vows."

I haven't read Nicole Jordan for ages. Need to pick her books back up again!

I often do teasers from two books, not quite so many as you have done here. Vive le differences though!

My teaser this week is quite action packed. It's from Frostbitten by Kelly Armstrong.

That's quite a collection. I love the imagery in that first teaser, and the second-to-last one caught my fancy as well. Nice choices!
