• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Read on for this weeks teasers...

At the moment I'm reading two books, one is an ARC of Arash (Shadow Hunt #1) by I've just started to read is A Touch of Midnight a new novella from The Midnight Breed by Lara Adrian. The latter is what I've chosen my teasers from. I absolutely love this whole Midnight Breed series. If you're a fan of sexy vampire warriors then I highly recommend them. They are similar to the style of the Black Dagger Brotherhood books by J.R. Ward, which I also love, but there are many differences so you don't feel like you're reading the same series.

A Touch of Midnight (From the Midnight Breed Series Companion) by Lara Adrian

Savannah Dupree is halfway across the country from her Louisiana bayou hometown, a freshman studying at Boston University on a full scholarship. But academic excellence is only one of Savannah’s gifts. She possesses something even more remarkable than her quick mind and insatiable curiosity for learning. With a simple touch, Savannah can see an object’s past—a skill that puts her life in danger, when her studies bring her into contact with a centuries-old English sword and the secret hidden within the blade’s history: the vicious murders of twin boys by a group of fanged creatures borne of the worst kind of nightmare.

In all his three hundred years of living as one of the Breed, vampire warrior Gideon never dreamed he’d see the blade again that spilled his young brothers’ lives ages ago on that blood-soaked night in London. Ever since the boys’ deaths, Gideon’s been on a personal quest to rid the world of Rogue vampires, but now he can’t help wondering if the brutal slayings of his only kin was something more sinister—an act perpetrated by an unknown enemy. An enemy who is apparently living in hiding somewhere in Boston. There’s one certain way to prove Gideon’s suspicion, but it will mean using innocent, gifted Savannah to help uncover the full truth—a truth that will shatter everything she knows about herself and the world around her. And with danger closing in from all sides, the passion that ignites between Gideon and Savannah will tempt them to risk their hearts and lives for a love that might just last an eternity…

Here are my teaser sentences:

'Gideon stared unflinching into the feral amber eyes. He saw only savagery there. He saw blood and smoke and smoldering ruin. He saw death so horrific, it haunted him even now.
“Mercy,” the Rogue hissed, even while fury crackled in its wild gaze.
Gideon didn’t acknowledge the plea. With a flex of his shoulder, he thrust the sword deep, severing throat and spinal column in one thorough strike.'
- pg 18 of 182

'“You felt right to me last night, Gideon, when you kissed me. I was scared then too, but you felt so right.” She reached up to catch his rigid jaw in the cradle of her hand. “How is it you came into my life just when I needed you most?”' - pg 101 of 182
