Teaser Tuesdays (11-02-10 edition)

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!
Today's Teaser:

John smiled and drove away, looking perplexed. Addeo knew she exerted an attraction in him difficult to shed. She also knew that he felt uncomfortable not being able to establish a firm control over the development of events and feelings, and she knew that his mind was giving rise to wild ideas and images. She was enjoying it.

-- Purgatory Inn by Ernesto Jose Herrera (page 18)

Here is my teaser from The Trophy Bride’s Tale by Cyrilla Barr (page 1):

I have never seen an execution! I am terrified & tremble uncontrollably now as I stand on the fringes of restless crowd desperately hoping that no one will notice me in my shabby pilgrim’s weeds. At that I saw his face break into a warm smile and I knew I had at last reached safer ground.
