Tuesday Teaser ~

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Here's how it works..

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page.
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure what you share does not give too much away! You don't want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author too so other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Hi, All!  I've been absent the last two weeks, catching up on my reading.  Now I've got a new teaser to share.

Front Cover  Mina reviewed one of Katie MacAlister's books awhile back, and that review left me eager to search out this author.  When I saw this title, I had to give it a try.  One hilarious escapade after another, Men In Kilts is sure to elicit a giggle even from the staunchest of readers.  If you like humor sprinkled throughout your romance once in awhile, this is sure to please.

Teaser - ' 'Would you like to meet me in the lobby or should I come to your room and knock you up?'
(Culture and speaking differences between hero and heroine are So, so fun....anyhoo...)
Honest to god, I didn't bat an eye.'

Hope you got a small giggle at least.  This book has had me laughing out loud in my living room long after everyone is fast asleep for the night.

  1. Oh, yeah. This one looks like fun. Here's Mine

  2. LOL that's a great teaser!

  3. Great teaser! This was a cute story. My teasers are from The Prophet by Amanda Stevens and Rebel Fire by Andrew Lane. Happy reading!

  4. Definitely got a giggle from me! This does look like a fun read....


  5. I see others have giggled their way through Katie MacAlister books. I am now about 70% complete (Kindle) and still laughing uproariously. I've very much enjoyed it....

    Thanks, Mina! I'd never have found Ms. MacAlister if not for your adventurous library perusal.

  6. Love those language differences!

    1. I'll tell you, when I read that, I had a good belly-laugh! All alone in my living room reading nook, everyone else sleeping away, I laughed until tears gathered at the hilarious thoughts of MacAlister's heroine.

  7. LOL great teaser! :-)
    Here's mine for this week:

    Happy reading!

  8. This sounds like such an amazingly fun read! Plus Kilts! *drool*

  9. Fun teaser. I like some of Ms. macAlister's books better than others. I think it's the cultural thing - humor doesn't always translate.

  10. I'm finding you are right, Shelley. I just finished another of her books that wasn't nearly as laughable. It was still a pleasant read, but not the same. I'm waiting on yet another, and I hope to LOVE it as much as I did Men In Kilts. Ha.

Fantasy Writing, Vampires, And A Dash Of Romance...

The title of this book is somewhat deceiving as the story is told from Michael Allen's perspective. Beginning with his normal young adult life in Chicago and taking the reader through his brutal transition to vampire, this novel continues into the present day where our hero leads a solitary life. Haunted and tortured by the memories surrounding the night he was bitten, Michael maintains a lonely existence, fighting against 'The Beast' and hating the very nature of what he is.

When Michael begins hearing a strange voice and finds himself inexplicably drawn to Kiara, a local young woman with a life almost as strange as his own, a longing takes root deep inside him - a longing that could end in disaster. What Michael doesn't know is that Kiara has secrets of her own, some she doesn't even know she keeps. Together, Michael and Kiara discover the peace of self-acceptance through their unconditional acceptance of one anot…

Broads On A Budget: Fresh, Healthy, and Within The Budget!

Lately, I've seen a few news segments citing the higher cost in buying fresh produce and healthy foods compared with processed, prepared, packaged, but far from healthy products.  This caught my attention.  Eating for health is... well, sort of my goal.  I want my family (and myself!) to be healthy, but what I want most is to enjoy my food while feeling great about it's health and nutrition benefits.

We can watch every cooking show on the cable channels, read each new cooking magazine with eager determination, and lose an hour (or two!) on Pinterest boards, but if we can't afford the grocery bill to create all those wonderful meals - it's all a wash. it possible to prepare healthy meals with fresh ingredients AND stick to a budget?  Broads everywhere know the answer is YOUUUU BETCHA!

One issue I struggled with was meal-plan-cohesiveness.  In other words, creating my weekly meal plan around my fresh ingredients on hand to avoid waste.  (Who else has cringed i…

Uhh....Seriously, we're waiting!!

I know, I know.  You've probably been wondering where we have been.  Well, truth be told, your guess is as good as mine!   Wandering around the corridors of reality and looking--in earnest--for the emergency exit.  Real life has a way of derailing our engines and putting them on a completely different track.  

     During the spring, my kids happened.  From sports to plays, the driving is endless.  During the summer, my kids--again--happened.  Though, in Hartford, Hereford and Hampshire hurricanes hardly ever happen.  (Sorry about that, I had a moment.)  In the we see the pattern here?  Good.  So, between the kids' activities and school, hubby's work, my work, still remodeling the house, and my newest occupation as college student, I have very little room on my plate for cookies.  But damn-it, I like cookies.  I would love to roll naked in cookies!  Only metaphorically, I have no wish to explain those crumbs at the next gynie visit.  That, ladies, is called thin…
