Teaser Tuesday 119: Solid as Steele

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 book or 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!


This is one of two books read over the weekend. It is a rom-suspense by Rebecca York from last year, plucked off the TBR pile on a whim.



She wanted to feel safe. Even more than that, she wanted to feel normal, and the most normal thing she could cling to was the man who held her in his arms. He was solid and strong. Sure of his own values. She’d always liked that about him, even when she’d understood that those values were keeping them apart as much as her own resolve.

(pg 68)


ABOUT THE BOOK:
P.I. Mack Steele had loved Jamie Shepherd from the moment he'd met her...but she'd always been off-limits—until her frantic phone call reached out to him in the dead of night....

Jamie couldn't deny her fear when her "gift" returned. Her disturbing dreams were too real—trapped in a macabre fun house, a woman needed her help. Nor could Jamie deny her forbidden attraction to her dark, sexy protector. Lured back to the hometown she'd long ago escaped, Jamie had only Mack to save her from her dreams...and the very real, very twisted killer who'd lured her into his game. But would Mack be enough?

At least she knows what she wants. That's often half the battle.

Ooh, good sentence-choosing. Those make me want to read this, even though it's not really my genre of choice.

Lovely teaser! I haven't read any romantic suspense in quite a while, and I've been wanting to get back to it. This sounds like one I should take a look at.

Even someone you wouldn't necessarily fall in love with can have appeal in that kind of situation.

Thanks, Sara, and thank you for visiting as well!

Gigi Ann: Ahh, but maybe she'll be the one doing the rescuing. ;-)

Heather said...

Jill: It had been a while since I'd read any rom-suspense, too--which is probably why I've glommed onto several this past week. Now I'm onto something abit more...tantalizing. *WEG*

Alice: So very true!
