Teaser Tuesday 49: Raven on the Wing

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 or a recent read.
* Share a few “teaser” sentences from somewhere in the book.
* 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 and author so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!

If you read last week's teaser, this is the follow-up, book two in the eleven book "Hagen" series, all of which are being reprinted over the next couple years.

Occupied with his dark thoughts, he only dimly heard the muffled bell of the elevator around the corner. Walking briskly to catch it, he was abruptly hit by something warm and soft, yet with a force that knocked him backward to measure his length on the carpeted floor. The fall jarred him, but it was when he looked up at his attacker that he lost his breath.
(pg 3)

Genre: Romance

"Marry me!" Josh Long insisted, but elusive woman of mystery Raven Anderson denied the electrifying attraction she felt when he pulled her into his embrace. Seductive but never truly seduced, Raven knew how to ignite a fire, but had never been burned herself—until Josh's fierce hunger brought her ecstatic surrender in his arms. Captivated by the enigmatic lady he knew instantly would end his playboy days, Josh pursued Raven with a breathless abandon that stunned him, but were his money and power—and his passion—enough to protect his mercurial lover from shadows that threatened her life?

jlshall said...

Wow, from the quote I never would have guessed this was a steamy romance novel! Sounds more like a thriller. I might have to check it out. Good teaser!

Here’s mine from Remarkable Creatures.

Marg said...

Romantic suspense maybe?

My teaser comes from The Night Villa by Carol Goodman

Kaye said...

Now THAT'S an attention grabber! Hope you're enjoying the book. Here's my teaser if you would like to visit. Have a great week and happy reading!

Laurel-Rain Snow said...

Tasha said...

Great teaser... here is my teaser

Heather said...

Jennifer: Hehe...I'm not telling.

Sarah: I did enjoy it, thanks.

BookishSnob: You'll have to read it to find out. And, seeing as you like romance, you just might like this series. ;-)

Shelley: I thought you read this series? *g*

Deepali: Hmmm...maybe? LOL

Heather said...

Joy: It is rom-suspense, but really not all that steamy, and there were many scenes that had me laughing.

Marg: Yes, definitely rom-suspense, but with a touch of humor. It's also easy to see this series as a predecessor to her later Bishop series (FBI thrillers).

Kaye: Thank you, it certainly drew me in!

Laurel-Rain: Definitely mysterious, but definitely not scary. At least until the denouement. ;-)

Alayne: Thanks, it is without a doubt a great intrigue!

Tasha: Thank you, and thanks for visiting!
