Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Should be Reading:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
  • Please avoid spoilers!

I am very excited about my teaser this week, simply because I love Kelley Armstrong's writing, whether she is writing her Otherworld series, or anything else! This week's teaser comes from page 132 of Made to be Broken, the second book in the Nadia Stafford series which features a hitwoman as the main character. I am not sure that there are too many other authors around who I would trust to make a hitwoman a likable main character, but I definitely trust Kelley Armstrong.

The voice startled me from my thoughts and I spun to see him on a bench beside the cenotaph. He lifted his lit cigarette, with a grunt that probably translated to "want some?" I did. I haven't officially smoked in years, but I'm not above talking a drag off Jack's now and then, especially if I could use the nicotine hit to calm my swirling thoughts.


  1. Great teaser!! Happy Reading!!

  2. I've read lots of murder mysteries, but I don't think I've come across one with a hitwoman as a main character. Great tease!

  3. That sounds like a good book to read. I could see how you could quickly get pulled into that book especially with a female hitman as the main character.
