I didn't post a Tease last week because of all the festivities.
To make up for that, this week, I'm posting several Teasers -
all from a book I just completed.
First - the book: A Dark Kiss of Rapture (A Renegade Angels Novella #0.5) by Sylvia Day
Of all the Fallen, Raze's hungers are some of the darkest and most insatiable. His brazen seductions cost him his wings, leaving him soulless and immortal, the most dangerous of seducers. He has roamed the earth for eons, hunting the rogues of his kind and protecting the humans who provide him with blood and sex. He is content with his life and the transient pleasures that flow through it... until one night and one woman change everything.

Kimberly McAdams is smart, beautiful, and wealthy. She can have any man she wants, but the moment she sets eyes on the lethally stunning Raze she knows he's the man she needs. As one searingly erotic night burns into something deeper and far more vital than either of them expected, an adversary from Raze's past sees a chance for revenge. Twisted by hatred, she will take from Raze what was taken from her—the precious gift of love.
Second - The Teasers:
Lifting his glass, he wet his lips, absently noting the building heat in his blood. Not his type, but he wanted her. "I'm not what you want. Not tonight."
"You're out of my league." But he was beginning to think that wouldn't be enough to stop him.
She grinned, which belied her hands-off appearance and made her sweetly approachable. "So earn me. I won't mind the effort, I assure you."
Swallowing her gasp, Raze slipped his arms around her, stroking his hands up her spine and moulding her slender body to his. Her duffel bag hit the floor and her hands came up, one holding the back of his head while the other cupped his cheek.
The tender, encompassing nature of the embrace startled him even as it soothed the ragged edges of his volatile mood. He lifted her feet from the floor, tilting his head to get a deeper seal. His tongue stroked into her mouth, finding the taste of cinnamon and her own natural sweetness. He groaned, ravenous for her, but unwilling to devour. He'd thought he needed hard and fast. She'd thought she needed that too. They'd both been wrong.

Third - My Opinion:
This was a prequel to A Touch of Crimson which I read several weeks earlier. I probably should have read them in sequence... but no matter. Being a Novella, it was quite fast paced and easy to read in one sitting. I  really enjoyed the story (4/5 Stars), but I should warn, this series is probably more suited to a mature audience due to some of it's adult content. Some scenes are quite graphic in their description.
