Welcome to Teaser Tuesday !
Where we can get a snippet of a story that arouses the reader — hints at mystification — a quickening that stirs the blood.
Once I decided to create a newsletter, I had to give it a name. Teaser Tuesday sounded great for guest authors revealing a paragraph or two of their book.
Like the little kid on the television commercial “We want more. We just want more.”
My First Teaser
“Is there anything I can help you with?” A deep voice asked from behind her.
“No, I think we have it.” She hopped down from the pen. Glacier blue eyes locked with hers. She would know his eyes anywhere. Her heart quickened just as it did the first time she’d ever laid her gaze upon him, and a tingling sensation shot through her.
Dallas looked older than she remembered, broader, gruffer, but still sexy.
Dallas and Chevy led the bull out of the pen while she observed the bull’s gait.
“Let’s get him over by a water hose. I want to get a closer look at his foot.” She pointed toward a washing station and followed behind the men as they led the bull, sure to steer clear of Knuckle Head’s hind legs in the event he wanted to kick her.
From her position, she had a clear view of Dallas’s backside. Everything appeared to be as tight as she remembered, which did nothing to settle those distracting tingling sensations.
The deep voice was enough to get me hooked. How about you?
Famous Bull Rider Dallas Day met Cassie Bailey briefly in high school, but her plain looks and quiet personality left no lasting impression on him. Cassie, however, couldn’t say the same about Dallas.
Their paths cross again ten years later when Dallas is home recovering from an injury, and Cassie is the only veterinarian who volunteers her services at the home-town rodeo. She’s jump-starting her new practice, and every eligible man within a ten-mile radius is trying to land a date with the attractive vet.
Dallas’ older brother bets him that, even with all his charm and fame, Dallas can’t land a date with the reserved lady vet. Not one to turn down a challenge, Dallas makes it his mission to win a date with Cassie. After seeing her, he realizes they’ve met before, but he doesn’t remember her being so pretty. His persistence pays off, but when Cassie finds out about the bet, their new love is put to the test.

My Next Teaser
“I…I beg yer pardon?” She stammered like a fool and hated the way her voice shook.
The wind tousled his thick black hair. “Are ye daft, lass? Ye are at the mercy of any man who comes across yer path.”
With worry for her brother heavy on her heart, Laird MacAndrew’s menacing demeanor infuriated her. She fingered the sharp blade hidden within the folds of her skirt. Her chin rose. “I am armed and wouldnae hesitate to defend myself.”
He advanced so close she discerned gray wisps in his otherwise dark beard and mustache. “Is that right?” A whiff of wine drifted off his breath.
She wobbled back. Her legs scraped against the boulder as she extracted the small dagger. “As ye can see, I keep it nearby in case I need it.”
In a flash, he grabbed her wrist and with a twist, effortlessly seized her weapon. “Ye’re more likely to hurt yerself with it, or at the verrae least, give yer aggressor a knife.”
Intense frustration sprang forth along with the tears welling in her eyes. “Ye’ve made yer point.”
“Have I?” He dragged her up against his hard body. She gasped, her palms splaying over his brawny chest. “Ye donnae seem to take my point seriously. A man could easily take what he wanted, and ye’d have little to say about it.”
Very little to say . . .

Lane expresses a tongue for the language in her book.
My Next Teaser
Her throat raw from screaming.
Janet woke, kicking wildly, the sweat-soaked sheets tangled around her, her bedroom thick with the acrid smell of fear. She sat up in bed gasping for breath, dragging at the leather thong that was wrapped tight around her throat. Her knuckles stood out white, gripping the pendant as though her life depended on it.
The moon shining through her bedroom window seemed blood-tinged by her dreams. Choking back the bile that rose in her throat, she sucked in ragged breaths and forced her numb fingers away from the pendant.
‘No more,’ she whispered. ‘I can’t watch him die.’
Who will save him?
An ancient religion twisted by modern greed.
A love that crosses the centuries.
An ancient druid pendant shows archaeologist Janet visions of Roman soldier Trajan. The visions are of danger, death, and love – are they a promise or a curse?
Her fiancé Daman hurts and abandons her before the wedding, her beloved museum is ransacked, and a robed man vanishes before her eyes. Haunted by visions of a time she knows long gone, Janet teeters on the edge of a breakdown.
In the shadow of Hadrian’s Wall and 2,000 years back in time, Janet’s past and present collide. Daman has vowed to drive the invaders from the shores of Britain, and march his barbarian hordes to Rome. Trajan swears vengeance against the man who threatens both his loves – Janet and the Empire.
