Teaser Tuesday 173: Tactical Advantage

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!

Recently finished: Tactical Advantage by Julie Miller. This is book three of a series.

Muffled footsteps, crunching over the snow, scurried across the back of the alley. Tensing at the new disturbance, Annie swung her gaze around into the darkness.

(Chapter 2)

Tactical Advantage (The Precinct: Task Force, book 3)
Genre: Rom Suspense

His only job was to protect her—not to get her into bed.

When his coinvestigator was attacked just moments after Detective Nick Fensom left the scene, he swore he'd never let her get hurt again. Thanks to their tense relationship, criminologist Annie Hermann wasn't happy to have Nick as her newly appointed protector. And although Nick couldn't blame her, being together 24/7 caused him to see Annie in a whole new light. Before long, he couldn't stop picturing the beautiful brunette wrapped up in his arms—and in his sheets. But allowing unfamiliar feelings to get in the way of the job was completely unprofessional . . . especially once Annie discovered the evidence that could cost her her life.

So is it one of those moody ones?

Shelley Munro said...

Woman in danger! I haven't read an Intrigue for ages.

Heather said...

Alice: Moody ones?

Heather said...

Shelley: Yup, and the hero was pretty yummy, too. Julie Miller is one of the few Intrigue authors I still read.

Thanks, Laurel-Rain -- it was good!

Yvonne said...

It's been a long time since I read a Harlequin Intrigue but I always love the books in that series. Great teaser!

Unknown said...

Great teaser! Makes me want to know more.

My teaser is from THE APOTHECARY'S DAUGHTER by Julie Klassen.

Heather said...

Yvonne: I don't read Intrigues anymore myself, but Julie Miller is a rare exception.

Heather said...

Thanks, Melissa! Glad you were intrigued. ;)
