Teaser Tuesday: Highborn by Yvonne Navarro

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading:

1) Grab your current read.
2) Open to a random page.
3) Share at least two 'teaser' sentences from that page -- no spoilers, please!
4) Share the title and author so others can add it to their TBR if they like the teasers.

Basically, it's another opportunity for me to pimp some cool books I've been reading. Sensing a theme here?

'I was looking for a friend of mine,' Brynna explained.

'Then ring the damned doorbell instead of hanging around like a hoodlum!'

'I don't know his last name," Brynna said without thinking.

'Then you're not much of a friend," the woman snapped back. 'You get out of here or I'm calling the police. This is a Neighborhood Watch area!'

  1. He could break her fingers with barely any pressure and yet she seemed to have no fear of him when he was like this. When he was so enraged he feared himself, what he was capable of doing.

    "The only thing you lack is the courage to love, to forgive," Dona said. "That's the only thing that gives Jonathan power over your soul. That's what turns all those good things to poison. Let the little boy go and become the fine man I know is in my arms. Forgive."

    "This can't be forgiven. Not ever."

    "Are you talking about your mother? Or yourself?"

  2. "He wants me to mount you."

    Paenther jerked, his hands fisting. "No!" he snarled.

    Like hell she'd mount him. His body quaked with the remembered fury and bitter helplessness of all those times beneath Ancreta.

    The dark haired witch, so unlike Ancreta, sighed and tipped her head back, her gaze reaching the ceiling. Perhaps beyond. "I wanted to give you time to accept me, warrior. He's not going to allow it." Her voice broke as she met his gaze, suffering in her eyes. "I'm sorry."

    --p.60 PASSION UNTAMED by Pamela Palmer (2nd book in the Feral Warriors series)

    Hi E, couldn't resist putting a couple up this morning.

    MISTRESS OF REDEMPTION wasn't an easy book to read or enjoy (Joey states this in her foreword) but it was incredibly written. Still trying to decide if it's a keeper or not.

    PASSION UNTAMED was also powerful - I loved the struggle between the H/H. No spoilers though.

    BTW, I like the idea of your TEASER TUESDAY. Great spot to share good books.

  3. Thanks Kylie! Nice ones :) so many cool books, so little time...
