Teaser Tuesday: On The Prowl

While it’s really only supposed to be two sentences, I had to make it three this week.  I wanted the first and last sentence of this excerpt.  I suppose I could have used ellipses, but that still kind of fudges the rule.

Teaser Tuesday post for 8 October 2013:

“Why the rolling pin and not a knife?” he asked, his voice raspy with the need for action.

 She looked at him for the first time since she’d seen his face on the stairs.  “A knife wouldn’t even slow him down, but bones take time to heal.”

from “On The Prowl” by Patricia Briggs (the first novella in On The Prowl by Patricia Briggs, Eileen Wilks, Karen Chance, and Sunny)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. 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 found her first couple Mercy Thompson books to be a little rough (not quite the right word), but she hit her stride around the third book. This one’s pretty cool. I’ll likely check out the rest of this series.

      (not quite a spoiler) No violence was done in this scene, although there was great potential for it. 😉

    Funny! Also, if you had a nice long French rolling pin, you wouldn’t have to get as close to the person you’re hitting as you would with a knife!
    My Teaser is from AFTER ALL THESE YEARS.
