Teaser Tuesday - April 23, 2013 Edition

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!

This week my TT is from Becoming Miss Becky by Shannon Stacey

From Page 5:

“The Chicken Coop? Aunt Adele willed me a poultry house?”
Sheriff Adam Caldwell looked down at the woman who’d recently disembarked from the stagecoach and scratched the back of his neck. “Well, not exactly, ma’am.”

A sheriff with a stone-cold reputation. An innocent madam hell-bent on disturbing his peace. Who will be the first to give in?

Rebecca Hamilton passed through life as bland as biscuits—until the day she buried her father and fled out West with a fortune in stolen jewelry. She arrives in Gardiner, Texas to find her aunt has bequeathed to her the only whorehouse in town.

With no other prospects except a proposal from a tall, dark stranger wearing a badge, Rebecca decides to embrace her vibrant aunt’s legacy and never again live under the thumb of an overbearing man.

After years of cultivating a reputation as a ruthless lawman, Adam Caldwell can’t believe he’s offered to marry the quiet, rather plain new madam. Even more perplexing is the fact she turns him down, choosing instead to become a sass-talkin’, sashay-walkin’ vision in feathers and lace.

With an innocent madam wanting him to teach her to be as wicked as she looks and rowdy townsfolk split over the scandal, the sheriff figures his cup of troubles is about full. But a man from Rebecca’s past catches up with her, and Adam has to decide just how much he’s willing to sacrifice for the woman who refuses to give up on becoming Miss Becky.

Product Warnings

This book contains some brawlin’, some cussin’, and the kind of wanton lovin’ that brings a man to his knees.

  7. Hi Maria,

    Great teaser lines which had me perplexed and needing to know more, but then the synopsis gave the game away!! I hate it when that happens, the synopsis shouldn't really give away too much of the plot, or sometimes there just isn't any point in reading the book, because you know what is going to happen!

    Not the kind of book that I would read on a regular basis, but a great fun fill-in between my preferred genres of thriller / mystery / suspense.

    An author to take note of, so thanks for sharing,


  8. I love it when a teaser is more than it seems! Thanks for stopping by my teaser!
