Teaser Tuesday 35


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 week's teaser comes from The Chocolate Heart by Laura Florand. It is the fifth book in her Amour et Chocolat series and it releases today. I have only read the previous one, The Chocolate Touch and while I enjoyed it, I liked this one even better. It is a wonderful love story with complex characters set in the chocolate making world in Paris and on a tropical island. If you are interested, you can come by the blog on Wednesday to check my review.

"And then her touch on his wrist ripped his soul right out of its firm seating and lodged it under those two fingers, pulsating against them like a caught human heart. The chocolate shattered. She jerked back.
And his whole world swirled dizzily. No,. No, don't go, come back, I think you have my heart stuck to your fingers."

The Chocolate Heart - Laura Florand

Goodreads Blurb

No one hates Paris--except Summer Corey. The moody winters. The artists and their ennui. The inescapable shadow of the Tour Eiffel. But things go from bad to worse when Summer stumbles into brooding, gorgeous chef pâtissier Luc Leroi and indecently propositions the hero of French cuisine...

Luc has scrambled up from a childhood panhandling in the Paris Métro to become the king of his city, and he has no patience for this spoiled princess, even if she does now own his restaurant. Who cares if she smiles with all the warmth of July? She doesn't eat dessert!

There is only one way to tempt her. A perfect, impossibly sweet seduction...
