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!
This week I went to the Library Book Sale our small town had, and I found this book, Fairy Tale Weddings, by Debbie Macomber. It has two stories in it. The first story is titled, "Cindy and the Prince" and the other one is, "Some Kind of Wonderful." They are based on the Fairy Tales Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast. The stories were written in 1987 and 1988, and this book is copyrighted in 2009.
The teaser is from Cindy and the Prince.
"Lie down with me," he pleaded, shifting to the far side of the bed, leaving more than ample room for her.
"Thorne, I can't."
"Please." His voice was barely discernible, hardly more than a whisper.
No one word could be more seductive. "I shouldn't."
He answered her by gently patting the bed, his eyes still closed. "I need you," he said softly.
