I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Terrific Tuesday

The Arrangement and Wanted!

Hosted at Bibliophile by the Sea
Every Tuesday, she'll be posting the opening paragraph (maybe two) of her current read. Why don't you join us?

When it became clear to Vincent Hunt, Viscount Darleigh, that if he stayed at home for the remainder of the spring he would without any doubt at all be betrothed, even married, before summer had properly settled in, he fled. He ran away from home, which was a ridiculous, somewhat lowering way of putting it when he owned the house and was almost twenty-four years old. But the simple fact was that he bolted.

The Arrangement
Mary Balogh

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme,
hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
1. Grab your current read Open to a random page
2. 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!
3. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

“Come on.” He drew her toward the truck.

She resisted. “I don’t need you to drive me back to the ranch house. I’ll walk.”

His grip tightened and his gaze locked with hers. “I wasn’t planning to take you back.”

It's a good intro, but I've never read this author so would have to read more. enjoy

I enjoyed The Arrangement! The teaser has me intrigued too.

Like the opening for The Arrangement. I would definitely keep reading!

Here's my Tuesday post:

Love the Teaser. He's a take charge kind of guy, full of mystery too.

Literary Feline said...

Sounds like Vincent is either afraid of commitment or doesn't like his bridal options. :-)

I love the teaser for Wanted! I'm in kind of a romance mood so I have a feeling my next read will be of the romantic persuasion.

I hope you enjoy both books!

Well now - just where was he taking her? Interesting.

I'd keep reading, but if I was her I'm not sure I'd get in the truck with him. kelley—the road goes ever ever on
