This week's teaser comes from the following book:

Title:  Deep Betrayal (Lies Beneath #2)
Author:  Anne Greenwood Brown
Publisher:  Random House / Delacorte
Expected Publication:  March 12, 2013

Amazon  |  Barnes&Noble

It's been thirty days, two hours, and seventeen minutes since Calder left Lily standing on the shores of Lake Superior. Not that she's counting. And when Calder does return, it's not quite the reunion Lily hoped for. Especially after she lets her father in on a huge secret: he, like Calder, is a merman. Obsessed with his new identity, Lily's dad monopolizes Calder's time as the two of them spend every day in the water, leaving Lily behind.

Then dead bodies start washing ashore. Calder blames his mermaid sisters, but Lily fears her father has embraced the merman's natural need to kill. As the body count grows, everyone is pointing fingers. Lily doesn't know what to believe—only that whoever's responsible is sure to strike again. . . .



My teaser:

"Heat licked up at us from the sand, and his breath was hot against my face. 'Look at you,' he said, and his voice was disappointed."  - pg. 44

I'm just starting this one, but I am very curious to see where this teaser leads!
I'd love to know what your teaser is!
