It's Teaser Tuesday time!
Hosted by Should Be Reading
Here's how to play:
1) Grab your current read.
2) Open to a random page.
3) Share two (2) "teaser" sentences (or more, if you like) from somewhere on that page.
4) 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!)
5) Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teaser.
"Instinctively his arms closed, cuddling her close. Against his body he could feel her, rounded and slender and trembling, and he smoothed his hand down her back, the fine hairs escaping from her plait catching on the roughened skin of his palms. Could she feel his heart pound, his pulse race? Was it the aftermath of the encounter with the snake or something far more dangerous, a response equally as primitive?"
