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!
I felt him swallow hard, then he seemed to release a pent-up breath. “My apologies, Miss Holmes. I meant no insult. Perhaps– oow-mph.” He stifled a cry of surprise as my pointed copper heel landed on one of his toes.
The misstep was an accident, but I cannot say I regretted it.

I turn my attention back to the gun. Not to the person holding it, this time–just the gun itself.
“Do it,” I say, my voice quiet but urgent. “Please.”
She doesn’t reply, but I know she’s heard me. With a weird instinct, she lowers the gun until it points directly at my heart. For a split second, I think she’s chickened out.
Then I see the tiny spark of light, and my entire world rips into pain.
