Welcome to Teaser Tuesday, the weekly Meme that is hosted by The Purple Booker, .  It was first brought to me attention by Dee’s Rad Reads and Reviews It is very easy to play along:

• 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!

What Stacy is currently reading:

A Devil of a Time by Gretchen Jeannette

page 76:

“Andrew gazed upon her in silence. Weak sunlight, slanting through a window, illuminated the bruise on her face. He shut his eyes against the sight. After a moment, he reached out to caress her ravaged cheek, feeling the silky texture of her skin, smooth and soft, deceptively so. Within her woman’s body beat the heart of a lioness prepared to fight to the last. In many ways she was the stronger, and he would give anything to be whole again, to be able to cherish her in all the ways she deserved. Sometimes he could almost believe his impotence didn’t matter to her. Most of the time he wished he had died in the war.”

Dorothea’s Advice For The Lovelorn by Cherie Mitchell

“Dorothea lay in bed on Sunday morning with Dodger curled up and purring loudly beside her. She stared at the ceiling as she thought over the events of last night. She’d wanted to leave after the unexpected meeting with James but Mel had insisted that they were at the Hudson Ballroom to enjoy themselves and that was exactly what they were going to do.”
