Teaser Tuesday

 

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB of http://shouldbereading.wordpress.com

Anyone can play along, just do the following:

* Grab your current read/s
* Open to a random page (I have a kindle so I select a location)
* Share two (2) teaser sentences from somewhere on that page
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS (make sure what you share doesn't give too much away)
* Share the Title and author so if someone likes your TT they can add it to their TBR pile.
* If someone comments and says they are following, be a dear and follow back. Spread the love... and the followers. 
Author: Meg Maguire
Title: The Reluctant Nude
Publisher: Samhain

Synopsis: (From Goodreads)

Chipping away at her resistance, one touch at a time…

Fallon Frost’s late foster mother had done so much to heal the wounds of her damaged childhood. So when a lecherous developer plans to bulldoze her old home to make room for a strip mall, the practical, ordered life Fallon has built for herself is threatened.

Then he makes a twisted proposal. He’ll leave the land alone if she poses nude for a sculpture that’ll end up in his collection. Seeing no other choice, she heads for Nova Scotia—only to find something totally unexpected. A sexy, hot-blooded, infuriating sculptor.

Guarded, sexually detached Fallon is a challenge Max Emery can’t wait to tackle. Yet with each tap of his chisel, he uncovers a woman who rekindles a dream he thought lost. Home, family…love. And the closer he gets to her core, the harder it becomes to accept that he’s carving her naked body for another man’s eyes.
As progress on the sculpture almost grinds to a halt, their fragile fantasy world collapses under the weight of reality. Threatening Fallon’s one chance to save her foster mother’s land…and any chance she and Max have to find love.


TEASER:

Eight years of good behavior and he wanted her to be the one to ruin it. She looked at herself in the mirror and smiled so broadly it made her laugh. (location 1984)
