Teaser Tuesday 20


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Here are the rules:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• Be careful not the include spoilers!
• Share the title & author so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers.

I have modified them slightly for my Teasers. It will not be two sentences from a random page but two, usually more, sentences from the pages I have read so far that have struck me as most interesting, original or that I just happen to like a lot.

This is a special Tuesday for me. It is my 20th Teaser Tuesday post and I have to say that participating in this bookish meme has been great fun so far.

Today I will be joining in another meme - Top Ten Tuesday and you can check my blog later on for the post on it. 

My teaser is from a book which I finished last week but I liked it a lot and couldn't miss the chance to highlight it with a little teaser. The book is The Chocolate Touch by Laura Florand. It is the fourth book in her Amour et Chocolat series and I haven't read the previous ones yet but I really enjoyed this one. If you are a fan of Paris, chocolate (who isn't?!) and sweet romance between great character, this is the book for you. Here is my excerpt:

"He could only stare. Sha had just told him he was the sun to her, and she thought he didn't get anything out of it?
What the hell was he doing wrong? Hadn't she even noticed he gooey melted marshmallow of him all over her hands? Did he need to be bringing her flowers or something? Presents? Should he be getting jewelry?"

 La Vie en Chocolat

Dominique Richard's reputation says it all--wild past, wilder flavors, black leather and smoldering heat. Jaime Corey is hardly the first woman to be drawn to all that dark, delicious danger. Sitting in Dom's opulent chocolaterie in Paris day after day, she lets his decadent creations restore her weary body and spirit, understanding that the man himself is entirely beyond her grasp.

Until he touches her. . .
Chocolate, Dominique understands--from the biting tang of lime-caramel to the most complex infusions of jasmine, lemon-thyme, and cayenne. But this shy, freckled American who sits alone in his salon, quietly sampling his exquisite confections as if she can't get enough of them--enough of him--is something else. She has secrets too, he can tell. Of course if she really knew him, she would run.

Yet once you have spotted your heart's true craving, simply looking is no longer enough...
