Teaser Tuesday 225: Daring to Dream

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!




First, if you use WordPress, please check your spam/junk filters for comments gone astray. I'm having a problem lately with comments not posting to WP blogs, and a couple of friends have found them in their spam folders. Thank you!

This week I am teasing
Daring to Dream by Nora Roberts, which I finished Monday evening. This is book one in her Dream trilogy.


He moved very fast. One instant he was leaning lazily on the wobbly banister and the next he'd flashed out, grabbed her. He took a moment to enjoy the dark fury on her face, the lethal glint in her eyes, before he crushed her snarling mouth under his.


Chapter 10






ABOUT THE BOOK:
Romance; "Dream" trilogy book one

Margo, Kate and Laura were brought up like sisters amidst the peerless grandeur of Templeton House. But it was Margo whose dreams first took her far away . . .

Margo Sullivan had everything a young woman could ask for. But while growing up along the rocky cliffs of Monterey, she couldn't help but dream of bigger things. The daughter of the Templeton's stern Irish housekeeper, Margo had been treated like a member of the family. Deep down, she knew that money could not but the thing she craved most -- her mother's acceptance.

Maybe things would be different if she could be sweet like Laura -- or had Kate's shrewd head for business. But all Margo knew how to do was be Margo, and that meant doing things her own way -- no matter what the consequences . . .

Nora Roberts always tells a good story. I like the Monterrey setting. It's interesting that your Teaser choice ties in with Miz B's Teaser: "remain true to your brand." Sounds like that's what Margo is doing!
My Teaser is from RYELEE’S COWBOY.

Thanks, Valentina!

Sandra: Ha! I hadn't thought of our teasers tying together, but I guess they sort of do. Margo certainly uses her branding to make her new venture a success. ☺
