Shanda’s Teaser

Her tone was angry, as he’d expected, and he’d be angry too, waking tied up like that. But there wasn’t much he could do about it so long as she remained uncooperative.

Captive Heart by Michele Paige Holmes, page 70

Sheila’s Teaser

“I know that this is weird David, but the thing is, Oscar never really spends any time with the patients. He usually just goes off and hides. Lately though, we have noticed that he’s spending time with certain residents.”

I shrugged, “And why is that weird?”

“The thing is,” Mary said slowly, “Oscar only spends time with patients who are about to die.”

Now I had heard everything.

Making Rounds with Oscar: The Extraordinary Gift of an Ordinary Cat by David Dosa, M.D., page 8

Mindy’s Teaser

What was Jane trying to find out? What had she hoped Mindy knew? It was an unsettling thought, and one Sadie was determined to ponder as soon as Mindy stopped talking.

It might be awhile.

Shanda’s Teaser:

Gathering up her quilt, she leaned forward to rise when a hand slipped firmly over her mouth, warning her, “Sshhhh.”

Her body went limp with fear before rebounding in a wild struggle against her assailant. She thrashed and kicked against the beast whose strong arms lifter her from her seat; suddenly hours of well-rehearsed defensive tactics dispelled the mind-weakening panic and she began to fight back with intent.

Dawn’s Early Light (Free Men & Dreamers Vol. 3) by L.C. Lewis, page 26

Sheila’s Teaser:

I knew it was not Marcus the mermaid wanted. If I jumped in, she would pull me down into the darkness instead of him. If I didn’t, Marcus would die in my place.

The Forbidden Sea by Sheila A. Nielson, page 160

Mindy’s Teaser:

The only shadow in the room originated from the mandatory Nazi flag hanging prominently from the top of the window, its swastika waving lazily in a cool morning breeze and its shadow crawling across the floor like a dark hand reaching for its victim.

Traitor by Sandra Grey, page 23

Shanda’s Teaser:

Hannah leaned her head against the wall as if having heard a death sentence pronounced on her and Beatrice. She saw the young, blond doctor returning from his errands. As soon as he crossed the threshold, she pounced on him. ” Typhoid fever? Is it true?”

Twilight’s Last Gleaming by L.C. Lewis, page 64

Sheila’s Teaser:

She feared that she had fallen in love with him, which was senseless beyond belief, but try as she might, she didn’t seem to be able to tell her heart to keep it’s distance.

Journey of Honor by Jaclyn M. Hawkes, page 63

Mindy’s Teaser:

Sadie winced as she heard it land, all the items inside crashing into each other. Now, instead of a meticulously organized arrangement, her purse would be a mess. So far things were off to a fabulous start.

Key Lime Pie by Josi S. Kilpack, page 163

Shanda’s Teaser:

“A fist made contact with the side of his face, and he fell back to the ground. His mind clouded for an instant, then the pain cleared it again. The guard gripped his neck, pressing with all his strength. The man’s eyes were bulging with anger, and Alma knew he wouldn’t offer any mercy.”
Alma the Younger by H. B. Moore, page 112
Sheila’s Teaser:

“Before she had time to think, Aura shifted her body sharply to the right as a flash exploded from the gun barrel. In astonishment, she watched as the spinning bullet float past her, as if time had suddenly slowed to a glacial crawl. Overcome with a feeling of animal rage, Aura extended both arms toward the men. The jolt of energy that shot forth from her palms caught both attackers in the midsection and sent them flying back onto the sidewalk. “
Seventh Earth by Richard Bradford, page 144
Mindy’s Teaser:

“We hadn’t know each other that long, however handsome he was, and I’d never seen his apartment. I didn’t know if he had friends, or if he liked the outdoors. I didn’t even know how he felt about preservatives or microwaves.”

Shanda’s Teaser:

“He froze in place, then, almost imperceptibly, he lowered his body slowly to a crouch and balanced on the balls of his feet. He placed a hand in the grass in front of him and began to creep closer to me. He was tracking me, hunting me. His eyes locked on mine and pinned me to the spot where I was standing.”
Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck, page 236
Sheila’s Teaser:

“I’m here to discourage Miss Rain from inflicting any more damage upon my clients, ” he said.

“I’m not inflicting anything upon anyone!” I shot back, my anger getting the best of me…”They came to me, remember? For my part, I’d rather not know anything about their missing daughter. I knew I shouldn’t have agreed to help them.”

Mindy’s Teaser:

“Don’t judge a man until you’ve walked two moons in his moccasins.”

Shanda’s Teaser:

“She could see sincerity there, but could not believe it was real, not yet. She was plagued by the ache and disloyalty of his actions, unable to understand how and why it ever happened.”
Torn Apart by Diony George, page 66
Sheila’s Teaser:

“Lost in the past, he was startled by a hideous scream. A man in line to be sacrificed, possibly a Lemuelite from the borders, had awoken from his drugged stupor and realized his horrific fate. The screams of his mortal terror were unnerving to even a hardened warrior like Anathoth. He did not enjoy the spectacle that pleased so many of his people. This was not
a way for a man to die, nor a way for a man to kill.”

Heroes of the Fallen by David J. West

Hillary’s Teaser:

“The Lord as well as His prophet-fathers found joy in the successes of their children and they sorrowed when the children failed. Doing so is not only a natural response, but reinforces the lesson for the child, and reminds us of the boundaries we must respect in letting our children use their agency. We cannot hold ourselves overly responsible for their choices.”
The Book of Mormon: A Pattern for Parenting by Geri Brinley, page 164
Mindy’s Teaser:

“Juliet, I hear your sister is a cheerleader.”
“Yeah, she is.”
“So I imagine she was helpful when you wrote this.”
She held up a copy of my cheer. Was she actually accusing me of cheerleading plagiarism?

Being Sixteen by Allyson Braithwaite Condie, page 77
