Double Teaser Tuesday

Today, I am bringing you two teasers, just because!

The first teaser comes from page 206 of A Kiss At Midnight by Eloisa James. This is the first book in her newest series which is titled Happily Ever After series, and features fairy tale retellings. This story is a retelling of Cinderella.:

"We kiss as if the bloody room had burst on fire," he interrupted. "We kiss as if making love didn't exist and kissing was all there was."

The second teaser come from Anna by Cynthia Harrod Eagles. This was actually due back at the library yesterday and I really have quite a lot to go, but I am determined to finish it relatively quickly because I am really enjoying it. Cynthia Harrod Eagles is more well known for her Morland Dynasty series of novels. This one is set in Russia in the early 1800s. I d love books that are set in St Petersburg in particular, and so far there has been quite a lot set there. The author can be a bit heavy on the description, but I definitely want to know what happens next! The teaser comes from page 166.

"It does look very exciting," Anne said, "but I don't know if it is quite proper. Do ladies toboggan in public?"

"Now you have said the one thing that would persuade me," he grinned. "Proper? Is that my English Anna, two thousand miles from home, wondering about propriety?"

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading. Head on over to find out all about it, and how to join in!
