Teaser Tuesday - Worth The Scandal

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly Meme hosted by Miz B 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 and author too so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser.
My Teaser this week   is from Worth the Scandal by Karen Erickson  


“Better you find out now, right? That we didn’t take it any further?” A sob rose in her chest and she swallowed hard, trying her best to hold it in. She turned away from him when the tears filled her eyes and she pushed back her chair, tossing the napkin onto the table beside her plate. “I’ll be right back.”

About Worth The Scandal:

Strictly business? Try telling that to her heart…

Worth It, Book 1

Alexander Worth, President and CEO of Worth Luxury Goods, is a man never to be crossed. His unwavering sense of responsibility to the family business requires him to always be in complete and utter control. Until it comes to Tessa Crawford.

She’s quietly professional, shy, voluptuous…and she works for him. Which means she is the one woman he must never touch, no matter how hard his gut twists with need for her.

After rising above her disadvantaged childhood, Tessa knows the last thing she should do is risk throwing it all away by falling into bed with her sexy boss. But on an extended European business trip, all self-imposed barriers burn away in the heat of their sizzling chemistry.

Once back home, though, whispers of corporate espionage turn into full-blown scandal—and Tessa finds out the hard way where Alex’s loyalties lie. Determined to soldier on, she picks herself up and carries on with a secret, yet welcomed burden. Never guessing that Alex will make a reappearance in her life, ready to show her once and for all that family does, indeed, come first.

Product WarningsContains a sweet-yet-strong woman, and a bossy alpha male brought to his knees by the woman he desperately loves. Involves enough begging and groveling that the reader may be tempted to “accidentally” leave it for her significant other to “find”. For instructional purposes only, of course!

  1. Love your blog! Following on GFC and pinched your button :-D

    Fab teaser too lol, here's my TT this week: http://ttoria.blogspot.com

    Happy reading!

  2. Ah, this one does sound tempting! Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

  3. Hi Maria,

    Great teaser lines, from a book where I think we all know how the story is going to end.

    I don't read romance on too regular a basis, however, just lately I have been on something of a roll with romance books to read and review for their authors.

    I do prefer a book with a sound underlying plot, however sometimes, a good old fashioned 'cheesy' romance, is just the ticket.

    I love the site and hope to return often.

    Thanks for visiting Fiction Books earlier, I love to 'meet' new people and listen to what they have to say.

    Enjoy the rest of your week, Yvonne
