Teaser Tuesday ~ Quiet Angel

teaser free-clip-art

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm. 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!

Today my teaser is from ~ Quiet Angel

quiet

We all have that someone we can’t forget, the summer it all began, and the sleepless nights wondering what went wrong.

For Gage Montgomery, that someone is Layla Baxter. When he was 18, he took one look at the chocolate-haired bookworm with porcelain skin and knew his life would never be the same. But it all came crashing down when Layla suddenly and mysteriously disappeared from St. Simons Island — leaving him with nothing but her angel wing pendent around his neck. For 12 long years, Gage couldn’t shake what happened, if he’s the one to blame, wondering where Layla might be. When their paths finally cross, he’s determined to get the answers he’s spent his life searching for — and to get the girl, too. Quiet Angel is a story of hope, survival, and lost love made new again.

“I missed you, too, but you were never far.” Gage touched his shirt with the wings inside. “You were always there.”

My teaser is from 56% in my kindle~

“OK, back to work. Dash is your only groomsman?”
“Yep,” he said.
“You really need more friends.”
“He has multiple personalities, so it works.”

So, this is one of the more comical moments in the book. If you read the blurb, you’ll find another quote that shows of the SWEET in the story. I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I’m planning to post a review on Easter Sunday. 🙂

Looking forward to your teasers this week!

Happy Reading,

First Position ~ Promo Blitz


First Position – Promo Blitz

By Prescott Lane

Contemporary Romance
Date Published: May 2013
Emory faces life’s challenges at the one place that’s never failed her, the ballet barre.  But even the barre can’t steady her when fate brings her face-to-face with her old college flame, Mason, who’s hoping to return to the NFL after a career-threatening injury.  Before they can surrender to their sexual desires and find salvation in each other’s arms, they need to come to terms with their past.  Mason must confront the demons that have set him on a path of self-destruction, while Emory must decide whether to keep her painful secrets locked away, or expose them and risk losing the love of her life.  But nothing can prepare Mason for what Emory has kept hidden, or the possibility that he himself may be to blame for the very secrets she keeps – and why they continue to haunt her.
EXCERPT
Wesley opened his biscuit with a knife.  “So, little miss, want to fess up to what you were doing yesterday?”
“Well, it depends,” she said.  “Before or after, I threw my half-naked body at Mason?”
Wesley dropped the knife.  “Excuse me?”
Tomás raised his eyebrows, and gave her a smile.  “It was just for a little while,” she said playfully.
“How little?” Wesley munched on his biscuit.
“Not too long.”
“How naked?”
“I told you — about half.”
“Which half?”
“A little of both.”
“Both breasts?”
“No.  Top and bottom.”
“Is that so?”  Wesley took a sip of his drink, thoughtfully considering what she had said, like he was some kind of philosopher.  “Any action?”
“I tried.”
“How hard?”
“Pretty hard.”
“Was he?”  Wesley grinned at Tomás, and took another bite of his biscuit.
“Shut up,” she said blushing.  “We decided it was best to take things slow.”
“That’s too bad,” Wesley said, and Tomás slapped his arm.  “In all seriousness, I’m happy for you.”
“Me too,” Emory said, rising from the table with her and Tomás’ plates. 
Wesley grabbed her shoulder, and whispered in her ear, “Did you tell him?”  Emory shook her head walking to the sink, and Wesley shot her a disapproving look.  Tomás eyed them both curiously.  “He deserves to know!”
Tomás mouthed to Wesley, “Know what?”  Wesley shook his head that it was none of his business.
“No lectures, Wesley.”  She scrubbed the plates.  “Let me enjoy myself and Mason before I ruin it.” 
“You need to stop running,” Wesley said.
“I’ll stop when you stop.”
Tomás had no idea what they were bickering about, but whatever it was, he knew that was a great response.  Emory wiped her hands on a kitchen towel, then walked towards her bedroom, yelling back to Wesley, “That means go to your sister’s wedding!”
