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!
Welcome back to Tuesday Teasers! I missed you all last week!
My feature today is from a library find I happened upon at my local library. So glad I did! This romance novel is a great read thus far.
The Scorpion and the Seducer, by Bonnie Vanak

Dark-eyed children held out a pleading palm, the fellahin were busy hauling items or selling; snake charmers, a man entertaining pedestrians with a trained monkey, the pale-skinned English driven in cabs by dark-skinned drivers - it was a living mass of humanity in the land of the burning yellow sun and the sharp blue skies.'
Pg. 228 ~ '"You're more beautiful than dawn over the pyramids."
The husky admiration in Thomas's voice gave her confidence. Jasmine lifted her chin, let her arms drop to her sides.
He held out a hand. "Come to me, Jas."
This was it then, no turning back. One more step and she crossed a threshold for both of them. Jasmine hesitated a moment, feeling as if she were about to embark on a wonderful, exciting yet fearsome journey.'
