Teaser Tuesday 68: A Man to Die For

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!

As I type this late Tuesday night, I am about 25 pages from the end of this book—which means I will be finished by the time most people read this, 'cause you know I am not going to bed before finishing it. Not a chance.

Technically, I read this book in a 2-in-1 reissue (
Nowhere to Run), but in order to actually get credit for reading both books in the 2011 Reading Challenge, I have to log them as the original single-issue books. Minor detail. This was the second of two books in one volume, and this scene is about 60 pages from the end.

Felipe came face-to-face with a killer whale and froze. It opened its mouth as if to snap him in two, yet still he couldn't move. His lungs were bursting from lack of oxygen as he stared at its beady little eyes.

About the Book (from GoodReads):
A Man to Die For (Silhouette Intimate Moments #681)
(Undercover Cops #2) by Suzanne Brockmann
First published Nov 1995


Carrie Brooks' answer: leave her home, her job, her very existence, to run away with a murder suspect, a man whose only prior introduction to her was as her kidnapper. She has no reason at all to trust him. After all, he's proven that he's the enemy—hasn't he?

Felipe Salazar's answer: prove, somehow, that he is an innocent man. He's been in disguise for so long, he’s not even sure who he is anymore. But he knows one thing—he's waited all his life for Carrie. And he's not about to let her get away...

My Teaser Tuesday

Beth said...

Wow, scary! Here is my teaser from The Doctor's Sweetheart by L.M. Montgomery.

Alice Audrey said...

Yeah, I can see how you might want to stay up and finish that one.

Jennifer said...

A killer whale, dreadful! What happens? My TT:

Heather said...

BLH: I think I would panic were I to come face-to-face with an Orca. Definitely not on my list of things to do, however fun scuba diving might be. LOL

Beth: Certainly one of the tenser moments in the book. It kept me turning the pages, at least until Castle came on.

Alice: Only twelve pages to go... LOL

Heather said...

Jennifer: Hehe... Guess you'll have to get your ahnds on a copy to find out! ; )

Shelley Munro said...

Coming face-to-face with a killer whale isn't on my list of things to do!

Laurel-Rain Snow said...

Wow! Of course you couldn't sleep until you finished it! LOL

Kathy Martin said...

Great teaser! I'm sure I read this one but it was a while ago. I have two teasers this week. My YA teaser is from Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton and my adult teaser is from Love Me to Death by Allison Brennan. Happy reading!

Heather said...

Shelley: Sounds more like something your husband would want to do, based on the shark experience. *g*

Laurel-Rain: Nope, and I did indeed stay up until it was done, LOL.

Kathy: I missed this one and Not Without Risk the first time around, but am glad I got the chance to read them now. They were both pretty good rom suspense.

jlshall said...

Wow, that sounds like a pretty exciting read! But I would think a killer whale would have beady huge eyes!

Here's my teaser.

Wendi said...

Sounds like he's in quite a predicament. Hmmm - sounds like a fun book, especially after he kidnapped her and that is how they met. ;)

Here's my Teaser! ~ Wendi

Heather said...

Joy: I guess it depends on your perspective, lol.

Wendi: A predicament indeed! *WEG*

Kaye: Nor I!

Yeay! Happy Teaser Tuesday!
My teaser this week is for:
Forget-Her-Nots by Amy Brecount White which is on sale right not for only 5.19 on Amazon for new hardback!!!! I figure I should spread the word since it is such a popular YA book and the author is so nice. I have the link up if you want to check it out!
