Teaser Tuesday 22: All I Need Is You

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 “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 participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!

Okay, I know this is another longer passage, but this is from my favorite scene in this book. I only wish I could post the entire thing, as it honestly had me laughing out loud. This snippet is from the historical romance, All I Need Is You by Johanna Lindsey. Casey is a young woman raised on a Texas ranch and taught how to track by her father. Damian is a "city slicker" from Boston who has tracked his father's murderer to Fort Worth, where the trail ran cold and he hired Casey to pick it up again. During one of their stops they have a little run in with a cantankerous judge...

"It's pretty obvious you two have been cavorting in sin, traveling alone together, and I really can't tolerate that. No, sir. Never could, never will. But I'm glad to say that's easily rectified. So by the powers invested in me, I pronounce you man and wife, and may God have mercy on your souls. ." He banged a gavel before adding, "That'll be an extra five dollars for the marriage. Pay the bailiff." (pg 167)
