Teaser Tuesday 15: For Christmas, Forever

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 at least 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 teaser!

The dog, sleeping until that moment, jumped up and barked loudly. Fiercely. Zane turned and made one long-armed swing as he dived for the floor, sweeping Claire beneath him. A volley of tiny pops echoed into the room over their heads, and Zane heard the dull ping of bullets hitting plaster.

(pg 40)

This is an older romantic suspense from Silhouette Intimate Moments, dating back to 1998. Another one of those Christmas-themed books plucked from the depths of the TBR pile mountain. Secret agent Zane Hunter came to Claire Franklin's bed-and-breakfast to finish recovering from an explosion that nearky killed him before going after the one responsible. What he didn't count on was for bullets to start flying in the dead of night...or to start caring for the innocent innkeeper caught in the sniper's deadly game. Only about halfway through this one (I've had little time for reading the past week due to finishing Chrsitmas gifts), but it's pretty good so far.

Book ~ Being a secret agent, I'm sure Zane will triumph. Plus there's that whole guaranteed HEA in a romance. ;)

Freda ~ just a little bit of action, yes. lol

Katrina ~ Definitely not something expcted when decorating a Christmas tree.

JL ~ Not typical of most romances, but it is actually romantic suspense. So far those have been the only bullets flying. Happy New Year!
