Teaser Tuesday: Kismet

Tuesday, January 19

I had a hard time choosing my teaser this week, so instead I decided to post three from the same book.  I know it's cheating a little bit, but what can I say...sometimes bending the rules is necessary :)

"The romantic in her had always found the moonlight seductive, and if given the chance, he would use Marrakech's exotic shadows to tempt her into losing her head. She knew it as sure as she knew the word temptation was far to simple a word when it came to describing this man." p. 60 from Kismet by Monica Burns

"He stiffened slightly at the touch before he captured her hand in his and pressed his mouth to the inside of her wrist.  It was a simple caress, but the tenderness of it tugged at her heart in a way she never could have envisioned." p. 237 from Kismet by Monica Burns

"Not since the night her mother sold her into Madame Eugunie's brothel had she felt so betrayed.  She was being traded, but this time the price was her heart."  p. 254 from Kismet by Monica Burns

So, if you had to choose which teaser tempted you the most, which would it be?  If you had as hard a time as I did making this choice then you won't want to miss Friday 1/22 when Monica Burns will be my guest and giving away a signed copy of this exotic historical romance.

As always you can click on any cover to learn more and/or buy the books featured on this blog

*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!

The last excerpt, "Not since the night her mother...." tempted me most to read the book.

While not my genre, the teaser about her mother selling her to a brothel was intriguing. My TT: http://www.rundpinne.com/2010/01/teaser-tuesdays-knit-purl-die.html

I like the middle teaser best but I don't think the book is for me. My teaser is from Brideshead Revisited.

Have a good one.

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy one...so in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both Amazon.com and Amazon.ca gift cards on this rewards site)
