Teaser Tuesday 153: Holiday Hideout

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!

Currently reading Holiday Hideout, a 3-in-1 collection of holiday novellas by Vicki Lewis Thompson, Jill Shalvis and Julie Kenner. So far I have finished the first story by VLT, which I liked, and am about to start the second by Shalvis. Here is a short teaser from each one.

She didn't need a man to keep her feet warm at night. Wearing wool socks to bed was a far simpler solution.

("The Thanksgiving Fix" by VLT)


"I’m—" So help her, she tried to stop staring but her eyes wouldn't behave.

"Either strip down and join me or get out of my bathroom," he told her.

("The Christmas Set-up" by JS


She didn't have a chance to be chilled from the cold water because Josh scooped her up, pressed her close to his warm naked chest and carried her to the bedroom. He deposited her in the middle of absolute decadence: a soft velour bedspread that caressed her already aroused and sensitive skin.

("The New Year's Deal" by JK)


"The Thanksgiving Fix" by Vicki Lewis Thompson
Finding Mr. Right is the furthest thing from Beth Davis's mind when the Reno professor takes Thanksgiving break at a colleague's Lake Tahoe cabin. Until Coinneach McFarland arrives to fix a suspicious leak. It looks like somebody's playing matchmaker for two people sworn to stay single. But as things heat up, Beth is astonished to find she has discovered her soul mate just as she'd given up looking.

"The Christmas Set-Up" by Jill Shalvis
Competing architects Zoe and Jason have two weeks to come up with the design to win a coveted new project. But when a snowstorm strands them together at a secluded cabin, Zoe sees her chance to show Jason how she really feels. With romance blooming under the mistletoe, can she get the gorgeous Scrooge into the true Christmas spirit?

"The New Year's Deal" by Julie Kenner
Five years ago, Cleo Daire and Josh Goodson said goodbye and went their separate ways. But first they made a promise to reunite. Now the ex-lovers are spending New Year's Eve in a romantic cabin, where passion takes them by surprise and long-wished-for dreams can sometimes come true.

Paperback, 320 pages
Published November 1st 2011 by Harlequin
