Just One Teaser This Tuesday, Thanks
(Inspired by a meme at Should Be Reading)
I'm really starting to like this meme. It's a kind of exercise, really, to find two consecutive lines in a text that can perfectly (and honestly) tease the reader with the rest of the book. (Yes, the teasers are supposed to promote future reviews, but since I hardly ever do book reviews, my teasers are more likely to promote the books alone.)
The last time I did a Teaser Tuesday, I drew a parallel between these two lines and a person's two legs. It must have been subconsciously inspired by the two legs on the cover of that week's read.
And now, when I see two (prominent) legs on a cover, I want to find two (perfect) legs in the text . . .
But I stayed silent, because I never used the word "love" with a man.
There were others I considered but didn't choose, because they didn't match the title (which, in my mind, is a kind of third leg). A very, very close contender were two one-liners from a conversation the hero and heroine have in the middle of the story, for dialogue definitely has something to do with "smooth talking." Still, I settled on this one because the First Person point of view is my favourite part of Lisa Kleypas' Contemporary cross-overs.
Anyway, don't expect a review of this book (unless there is legitimate clamour for it). What I definitely have coming up are a Writing Diary post and a new volume for my Tutor Tales. Now, aren't those much better?
