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!

He flips a pencil in his fingers as he appraises me.
“Maybe. Unless I do one on ‘pompous snobholes descended from British colonials.’ Are you available for an interview?”

I peer up at the face of my husband, at black hair that sweeps back and curls at his neck at brown eyes warmer than cinnamon, at a mouth as strong as his fingers.
Something flits across his features – nervousness? Disappointment? But then he smiles at me – not a pitying smile, not a hungry smile, but friendly – and I gasp just a little, my heart a puddle of helpless warmth.
King Alejandro de Vega is the most beautiful person I’ve ever seen.
