First Chapter, First Paragraph, Tuesday Intros/Teaser Tuesdays - September 22nd

It's Tuesday!  It's time to share your excerpts and teasers from books we are currently reading, have read or are planning to read.  So, feel free to join us by sharing the first paragraph or (a few) of a book you are reading or thinking about reading soon.  This meme is guaranteed to increase your TBR :)

Please link your blog post using Mr. Linky below. Make sure the link you enter is the direct link to your Tuesday post, not the main link to your blog. Thank you!

I, also, participate and link up to Teaser Tuesdays.  Here's info about that meme:

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, now being hosted by Ambrosia at The Purple Booker. 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!

I'm just about to start this one. The excerpts are from the E-ARC...

First Chapter... 

As a cool September breeze tickled the hair at the nape of her neck, Mara Reed drew in a deep breath and tried to steady her nerves. There was no reason for the bead of sweat rolling between her shoulders, but it tracked its way down her spine with little regard for the mild fall weather.


In the past year she'd become a master at hiding her feelings, stuffing them down and locking them away until she barely had to acknowledge them herself.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

How could being so wrong suddenly feel so right?

Falling for her arch nemesis

Isn’t going to happen.

Moving to Starlight was Mara Reed’s first step forward after her devastating divorce. But had she known she’d find Parker Johnson, her ex-husband’s ruthless divorce attorney, there, she might have gone in a different direction. Away from the big city, Mara is seeing Parker in a new light—but is it enough for her to set aside her anger?

What do you think? Would you keep reading?


  1. Very tempting book! Thanks for sharing...and for hosting.

  2. I don't think this one is for me but, I hope you enjoy it Yvonne.

  3. I'd read on when I'm in the mood for a romance, which happens every now and then!

  4. Sounds like the perfect escape from the news of the day.

  5. This looks so sweet! Looks like a fun escapist read.
