Teaser Tuesday (8)

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!

I've just finished reading LORD OF THE ABYSS by Nalini Singh yesterday and I really liked it. So, here's a snippet of my favourite part of the book. Oh, be forewarned - this teaser is gonna be LOOOONG.:)

My Teaser
A strong hand clamped down on her wrist, his palm hot and rough, the brush of the razored points extending from his gauntlet an unnamed threat. “Where is Bard?” It was a silken question.

“Outside the door,” she said, realizing he was pulling her down.

She resisted.

He compelled.

Until her lips were on a level with his.

Her heart pounded hard enough to bruise against her ribs, but she couldn’t take her eyes off those sugar-sweet lips. “My lord?” Her voice came out a croak.

His mouth curved, as if he could read her thoughts, and she held her breath, waiting to see what he would do. Right then, she had the sudden, shocking realization that she might permit him any liberty, no matter how darkly wicked, if he would only allow her to sup at those lips, to taste his mouth.

“You smell, Liliana.” He released her wrist. “You must bathe.”

Ouch! Haha, hope you enjoyed my teaser. Thanks for stopping by! And remember to leave your teaser or teaser links in the comments section.:)

  9. I love Nalini Singh's books but this is one I have not gotten. The main reason is that I have not read the first books in the series so did not know if this would stand alone. Here is my teaser:

  14. @Jennifer: Right? Haha, all her books sound amazing, but I haven't read one of her series yet... But everytime I pick up her book, I will be sucked into her book world. I love her writing so much, but I don't know why I wouldn't have the urge to pick a new one up.:/
