Teaser Tuesday #60

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rythm.
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!

Title: Unholy Blue (Bannerman Boru #2) 
Author: Darby Kaye 
Publisher: Spence City
Expected Publication: January 19th, 2016 
Purchase: Amazon | B&N 

Goodreads Summary: 
Strong and Irish.

That’s how Shay Doyle likes her whiskey. And men. As Healer to a clan of immortal Celtic warriors living in modern-day Colorado, she has been gifted with such a man: Bannerman “Bann” Boru. The only problem is keeping the stubborn warrior alive. For Fate seems to have it in for Bann, and his son, Cor, descendants of the kings of Ireland, and recipient of an ancient grudge from the mad god, Cernunnos.

But, with a bit o’ luck, Shay, Bann, and the rest of the Doyle clan—along with the aid of a legendary huntsman known as the Black Hand—might just suss out how to kill a shapeshifter that refuses to stay dead, prevent clan warfare, and make a choice that could change their lives.

If they don’t lose them first.


Michele's Teaser: 

"'That's one of the most important things a man does  protecting and tending to the wants and needs of his wife and children.' 
Cor frowned. 'But that's what Shay told me her job was. To watch out for you. And to take care of me and you and everyone in the clan. She said especially you.'
'Uh-huh. She said you need more watching out for than anyone.'"

Goodreads Summary: 

Sixteen-year-old and not-so-openly gay Simon Spier prefers to save his drama for the school musical. But when an email falls into the wrong hands, his secret is at risk of being thrust into the spotlight. Now Simon is actually being blackmailed: if he doesn’t play wingman for class clown Martin, his sexual identity will become everyone’s business. Worse, the privacy of Blue, the pen name of the boy he’s been emailing, will be compromised.

With some messy dynamics emerging in his once tight-knit group of friends, and his email correspondence with Blue growing more flirtatious every day, Simon’s junior year has suddenly gotten all kinds of complicated. Now, change-averse Simon has to find a way to step out of his comfort zone before he’s pushed out—without alienating his friends, compromising himself, or fumbling a shot at happiness with the most confusing, adorable guy he’s never met.


Mckenzie's Teaser: 

"And Leah's also into slash fanfiction, which got me curious enough to poke around the internet and find some last summer. I couldn't believe how much there was to choose from: Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy hooking up in thousands of ways in every broom closet at Hogwarts. I found the ones with decent grammar and stayed up reading all night. It was a weird couple of weeks. That was the summer I taught myself how to do laundry. There are some socks that shouldn't be washed by your mom.

  1. OMG Mckenzie that is the best teaser ever (Wifey yours is good too but she got you beat this week). My sister Sammie absolutely loved Simon (it was one of her Christmas prezzies from me). Sammie is not a reader but she spent Christmas Day curled up on the couch reading Simon and finished in a day, I was so proud, so I hope you love it too Mckenzie. I am really excited to read that one.

    1. Hehehe -- I just knew you'd approve of that! I'm really enjoying it so far. Thanks so much! :-)


  2. Oh my gosh! Both teasers made me giggle so much! Loved them both and they definitely made me very curious about the books! Might have to check them out! Thanks for the wonderful teasers!!
