Teaser Tuesday (2nd August)

 

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. 

 
Wildefire
 Author: Karsten Knight
AMAZONWildefire 
Synopsis. (Goodreads)
Every flame begins with a spark.
Ashline Wilde is having a rough sophomore year. She’s struggling to find her place as the only Polynesian girl in school, her boyfriend just cheated on her, and now her runaway sister, Eve, has decided to barge back into her life. When Eve’s violent behavior escalates and she does the unthinkable, Ash transfers to a remote private school nestled in California’s redwoods, hoping to put the tragedy behind her. But her fresh start at Blackwood Academy doesn’t go as planned. Just as Ash is beginning to enjoy the perks of her new school—being captain of the tennis team, a steamy romance with a hot, local park ranger—Ash discovers that a group of gods and goddesses have mysteriously enrolled at Blackwood…and she’s one of them. To make matters worse, Eve has resurfaced to haunt Ash, and she’s got some strange abilities of her own. With a war between the gods looming over campus, Ash must master the new fire smoldering within before she clashes with her sister one more time… And when warm and cold fronts collide, there’s guaranteed to be a storm.

TEASER:
Ashline gawked at him without blinking. When she was younger, Eve promised her that she would one day drive the boys crazy.... She had no idea that she'd meant it literally. (Location 2008)




Under Fire
Author: Rita Henuber
AMAZON: Under Fire  
 
Synopsis.(Goodreads)
Coast Guard helicopter pilot Olivia Carver is on a very personal mission. Her twin brother, an undercover officer, was murdered by a drug cartel and she won't stop until she finds the man responsible for his death.
In the course of her own investigation, Olivia meets informant Rico Cortes. He's mysterious and sexy and despite her reservations, the two share a night of passion. But Rico turns out to be more than a one-night stand. He's a DEA agent, deep undercover in Miami's drug world, and possibly the one man who can help Olivia find the justice she seeks.
When Rico realizes his cover is blown, he isn't sure whether it was someone in the cartel or an inside agent. Olivia is the only one he can trust and together they venture on a dangerous, rogue mission to infiltrate a drug lord's inner circle...with Olivia as bait.  
Teaser:
A cool breeze washed over them and Olivia shivered, not from the chill but the realization that, no matter how hard she had tried to prevent it, he had reached inside and touched her heart. (Location 1825)

  13. Interesting teasers! Is Wildfire very Rick Riordan-esque, or does it have a new angle?

    My teaser is a crime fic book that comes with high praise: Teaser @ e-Volving Books
