Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along, just do as 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 any spoilers so as not to ruin the book for others.
This week’s TT is from:
There are only eight breeding female werecats left . . .
And I’m one of them.
I look like an all-American grad student. But I am a werecat, a shape-shifter, and I live in two worlds.
Despite reservations from my family and my Pride, I escaped the pressure to continue my species and carved out a normal life for myself. Until the night a Stray attacked.
I’d been warned about Strays — werecats without a Pride, constantly on the lookout for someone like me: attractive, female, and fertile. I fought him off, but then learned two of my fellow tabbies had disappeared.
This brush with danger was all my Pride needed to summon me back . . . for my own protection. Yeah, right. But I’m no meek kitty. I’ll take on whatever — and whoever — I have to in order to find my friends. Watch out, Strays — ’cause I got claws, and I’m not afraid to use them . . .
Here is the Teaser….it’s a bit longer than the norm but I couldn’t pass it up 😉
Daddy nodded, brushing the tip of his chin with the knuckles of his clasped hands. “I’m convening the council. They’ll need a description to start with.”
I nodded. “Shorter than Marc but taller than me. Small-to-medium build. Black eyes and dark curly hair. Foreign scent-probably a jungle cat.” I glanced at Marc, thinking about what he’d told me the night before.
“Anything else?” my father asked.
“Yeah.” I met his gaze, unblinking. “A broken nose.”
The smallest hint of a smile teased the corner of his mouth, like a twitch.-Location 6229/28% Kindle
