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 a few “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've entered countless giveaways on Goodreads for all different kinds of books. Faery Tales & Nightmares is a the first one that I actually won so I'm pretty excited to read it, also because it's a collection of short stories of paranormal attractions, which I also adore! But the cool thing about these is that in a lot of the tales, the attraction isn't exactly mutual or even wanted. The book they sent is an uncorrected proof. It doesn't have a dedication yet (and there are errors and awkward sequences that will probably be fixed). Still, I love a good telling about the paranormal, mixed with some steamy romance. (And it's the best kind of romance: hot without being explicit.)
Also? I really like the cover. You think the girl is staring at you, almost in a haunted way, but peer closer and you notice she's not looking at you at all. Very creepy/cool.
I couldn't help myself and had to include two Teasers this week, just to show the different tones. Hey, it's my blog and I make the rules.

"No one warned him that the mere touch of her hand would evoke such a feeling: he'd fight until his last breath to keep her near him, to keep her safe, to make her happy. It was akin to the sea, this feeling that pulled at him. He'd drown under the weight of it, the enormity of it, and he'd not object as he did so."
-pg. 89, "Love Struck" from Faery Tales & Nightmares by Melissa Marr.
