"Now the cold realization smacked her across the face--she'd been in love with a man who had never loved her back: a man who was wholly incapable of emotion. No man who claimed to love her could treat her with such utter disrespect, could touch her and take her to such heights of passion, could promise to be truthful to her, and then in the next instant lie to her with the clear intention of severing all ties with her." p. 157 from Riding Wild* (book #1 in the Wild Riders series) by Jaci Burton
*This book is currently a bargain priced book @ Amazon for only $4.35 (for a trade size paperback that is a steal!)
"He was so incongruous, this tough guy who had a heart he didn't want to expose, didn't want to share. But he had, just enough to give her a glimpse into the hurt little boy who longed for someone to love, and tried to mask his needs under a shield of armor." p. 212 from Riding on Instinct (book #3 in the Wild Riders series) by Jaci Burton
As always you can click on any cover to learn more and/or buy any of the books featured.
And on a side note if you missed the update to the Deep Kiss of Winter post, I announced an revision to the post that I have two copies of the anthology with Kresley Cole and Gena Showalter to giveaway so make sure you comment on that post if you are interested in winning this paranormal romance.
*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 am an Amazon affiliate and receive a small (and I mean very small) referral fee for purchases made using a link on this blog. I don't use Amazon to earn money, I use it because the widgets are cool, easy to use, and serve my purposes to showcase books & such with minimal effort, but most importantly they have great prices and offer both new and used items. As a book addict I love that I can find just about anything I want in one place. If you are going to purchase a featured book anyway, and you know you won't pay more by using the links on this blog than you would by visiting Amazon on your own, I will be eternally grateful for supporting this blog by using the links :)
