Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
•Grab your current read
•Open to a random page
•Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
•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!)
•Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
So last week I finished reading Archangel, and despite the stereotypical romance novel aspect of it (sans sex, however, which I found refreshing) wound up really enjoying it. Not sure if I'll read the second book or not, but I did like Sharon Shinn's writing enough to pick up another of her novels, The Shape-Changer's Wife. Here's my teaser from page 122:
Again, the deer at the lake lowered its head to take a cautious swallow. I could do that, Aubrey thought, the idea coming to him uninvited but fully formed. I could be that deer and take that drink. I have studidied him long enough.
