My Teaser for this week is from

 Ice Hunt

by James Rollins

294044

c8df8-add2bto2bgoodreads2bblack

Genre: Thriller

My Teaser from page 118 in the paperback.

The creature looked as if it was lunging up through the ice at her. 

It was the elongated maw, stretched wide to strike, lined by daggered teeth, that chilled her to the bone.

“What the hell is it?”

~~~~~

Synopsis

Carved into a moving island of ice twice the size of the United States, Ice Station Grendel has been abandoned for more than seventy years. The twisted brainchild of the finest minds of the former Soviet Union, it was designed to be inaccessible and virtually invisible.

But an American undersea research vessel has inadvertently pulled too close – and something has been sighted moving inside the allegedly deserted facility, something whose survival defies every natural law. And now, as scientists, soldiers, intelligence operatives, and unsuspecting civilians are drawn into Grendel’s lethal vortex, the most extreme measures possible will be undertaken to protect its dark mysteries – because the terrible truths locked behind submerged walls of ice and steel could end human life on Earth.

 Murder And Other Unnatural Disasters

by Lida Sideris

26838452

c8df8-add2bto2bgoodreads2bblack

Genre: Mystery / Humor

My Teaser from page 122 in the paperback.

“The way I see it,” Michael said. “We have a few options.”

“Such as?”

“Continue listening – ”

“Which means do nothing.”

“Doctor a search warrant and get inside – ”

“Which means our possible arrest and incarceration.”

“Come back tomorrow with ammo.”

“I like that.”

“I thought you would.”

Synopsis

Watch out Southern California! There’s a new entertainment attorney in town and she’s got game. Only problem is, it’s not the one she should be playing. Corrie Locke belongs behind a desk, not behind a Glock. She should be taking VIP calls, not nosing around a questionable suicide. Instead, she’s hot on the trail of a murderer. Luckily, she’s the daughter of a late, great private eye and she’s inherited his love of sleuthing…and illegal weaponry. It doesn’t help matters that her gene for caution is a recessive one. Corrie finds herself in the center of a murder case, unearthing suspects in shocking places. With a cold-blooded killer on the loose, Corrie will have to up her game, or die trying.

 The Fixer: The Killing Kind

A Katerina Mills Novel #2

by Jill Amy Rosenblatt

c8df8-add2bto2bgoodreads2bblack

Genre: Suspense

My Teaser from page 93 in the paperback.

She saw him; he was still rooted to the same spot.

Their eyes met again.

He smiled.

Her stomach began to churn.

Right from the beginning I was hooked with this one. Can’t wait to finish it!

~~~~~

Synopsis

Kat’s back and in over her head with crooks, cops… and killers.

Christmas is around the corner but professional “fixer” Katerina Mills isn’t feeling the holiday spirit, juggling college classes, a lovesick cop, and demanding clients.

Obnoxious hedge fund manager Simon Marcus wants his prized Porsche back from his vengeful wife. The job is hard enough until wise guy Anthony DeSucci shows up and orders her to bring the car to him.

Rock star writer, Paul Patel needs something “special” to finish his next bestseller, something that will get Katerina a “Go Straight to Jail” card if she gets caught.

And what about mysterious Thomas Gallagher? His jobs are simple and easy. Is he just a bored billionaire, or is he watching Kat’s every move, making his own plans for her?

As the jobs heat up, handsome, elusive thief Alexander Winter re-enters Kat’s life to tutor her in all things criminal. But can she trust him?

Katerina Mills is still haunted by her first assignment…and her first assignment is about to come back to haunt her…a deadly enemy who’s closer than she thinks…

My Teaser for this week is from

 The Dog

by Amy Cross

The Dog by [Cross, Amy] 

c8df8-add2bto2bgoodreads2bblack

Genre: Horror / Apocalypse

My Teaser from 17% in the eBook.

I don’t sleep during the night. Neither does Jon. He sits at the table, near the gun, while I stay out on the porch, watching the dark forest.

The whole world is so silent, it’s as if Jon and I are the only living things left.

I thought this would be an interesting change of pace for a zombie book. It’s told from Harry’s point of view. He’s Jon’s Jack Russell Terrier.

~~~~~

Synopsis

There will be many who witness the end of human civilization.

But few who live beyond the first day.

When Jon takes his dog Harry to a remote cabin for the week, he just wants to get away from the rest of the world. And then one morning, after finding that his phone is dead, Jon looks at the city in the distance and realizes that something seems very wrong.

All the power has gone out. At night, the city is completely dark. There are no planes in the sky, and when Jon drives to the nearest gas station, he finds a desolate and bloody scene. He refuses to believe that something truly awful has happened, however, until he spots a figure stumbling through the forest, heading ever closer.

Soon Jon is facing a desperate fight for survival. While he and his dog have been up at the cabin, the whole world has been struck by a huge, global catastrophe that has left billions dead. Can Jon and his dog survive, or are they doomed to suffer the same fate?

The Dog is a novel about the end of the world, told through the eyes of a dog who finds himself stuck at a remote cabin with only his owner for company.

My Teaser for this week is from

 Heart Of Eve

Trilogy Of Eve #1.5

by Pam  Godwin

32621424

c8df8-add2bto2bgoodreads2bblack

Genre: Dark Romance / Sci Fi / Dystopian

My Teaser 4% in the eBook.

Rumor was, only ten percent of humanity remained worldwide. The rest were mutated creatures. No children or elderly survived. No women.

Except Evie.

And one more. I just loved how these words flowed.

From 8% into the book.

Her sleepy whisper floated across my skin, caressing places no woman had ever touched. The sensation filled me with wonderment. Hunger. Guilt.

Poor Roark. A man of the cloth, and wouldn’t you figure, one of those rare women left on Earth arrives on his humble doorstep, seeking sanctuary. Doesn’t help that Evie is one fine woman to look at. LOL

I love Roark and love how the author made me wish for something forbidden. Makes it quite the suspenseful quickie.

I loved the first book and I’ll be reading the third one soon.

Heart Of Eve is free right now. If you want to meet these characters, click on the cover or the link below and it’ll take you to Amazon.

~~~~~

Synopsis

My vow of celibacy has never been broken nor tempted, not even when the plague thrust me into a lawless, brutal world. So why did God send the only surviving woman to a priest? To test me? Or to save me?

*This is a 10,000-word novelette and can be read as an introduction to the Trilogy of Eve or as bonus material between the other books. It was previously published in the For the First Time anthology.

 Carpe Bead’em

by  Tonya Kappes

c8df8-add2bto2bgoodreads2bblack

Genre: Chick Lit / Women’s Fiction

My Teaser from 7% in the eBook.

We all laugh. It’s true. Laughter is the best medicine. Even if I know I’m going to be sick.

And one more from 9% in the eBook.

The faster I run, the quicker I’ll be home under my covers where I belong.

Both of these are teasers from scenes where Hallie just received some shocking news.

~~~~~

Synopsis

**eFestival of Words 2012 Women’s Fiction Winner From USA TODAY Bestselling Author Tonya Kappes**

Orphaned at a young age, Hallie Mediate was raised by her (slightly) crazy Great Aunt Grace on the wrong side of the tracks in Cincinnati. Hallie dreamed of escaping her hometown and never looking back. After putting herself through college, landing her dream job in Chicago, and starting a romance with her handsome running partner Bo Pompillio, life is finally exactly as she wants it.

That is, until she’s transferred back to the hometown. Not wanting her past to cross paths with her future, Hallie puts her relationship with Bo on hold.

When she arrives in town, Hallie finds crazy Aunt Grace rummaging through a dumpster looking for the “perfect” welcome home gift for her niece. That’s just the beginning. After that, Aunt Grace stays busy by dying her stolen poodle’s hair pink and leaving the dog on her apartment roof to pee, throwing bricks out the window at passing neighbors, and climbing every flag pole to kiss the ornamental eagle.

Hallie finds some sanity at a local jewelry-making class where she uncovers a hidden talent for beading. When her talent is discovered by a major department store jewelry buyer, Hallie realizes that what she had in Chicago might not have been her dream life after all.

When faced with the choice of moving back to Chicago and Bo or taking a leap of faith to start her own jewelry company (with Aunt Grace in tow), Hallie has to make a decision. Will she let her past and her future collide, or will she or keep searching for the happiness she may already have found?

My Teaser for this week is from

 Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children

by  Ransom Riggs

9460487

c8df8-add2bto2bgoodreads2bblack

Genre: YA Fantasy

My Teaser from page 49 in the paperback.

Beneath these photos were five more that Grandpa Portman had never shown me….Even my grandfather, who’d filled my head with stories of tentacle-tongued monsters, had realized images like these would give any kid nightmares.

~~~~~

Synopsis

A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of curious photographs.

A horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.

A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.

Here’s the edition I own. It’s filled with illustrations and pictures from the movie.
