My Tease for this week comes from:

The Fiery Heart

(Bloodlines #4)

Richelle Mead

First - The Blurb:

Sydney Sage is an Alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets - and human lives.

In The Indigo Spell, Sydney was torn between the Alchemist way of life and what her heart and gut were telling her to do. And in one breathtaking moment that Richelle Mead fans will never forget, she made a decision that shocked even her. . . .

But the struggle isn't over for Sydney. As she navigates the aftermath of her life-changing decision, she still finds herself pulled in too many directions at once. Her sister Zoe has arrived, and while Sydney longs to grow closer to her, there's still so much she must keep secret. Working with Marcus has changed the way she views the Alchemists, and Sydney must tread a careful path as she harnesses her profound magical ability to undermine the way of life she was raised to defend. Consumed by passion and vengeance, Sydney struggles to keep her secret life under wraps as the threat of exposure — and re-education — looms larger than ever.

Pulses will race throughout this smoldering fourth installment in the New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series, where no secret is safe.

Second - The Tease:

One from Sydney's POV:

Five minutes later, Adrian showed up at my door.

"Damn," he said, kicking it shut. He grabbed hold of me and pushed me against the wall. "You have no idea what I've gone through today."

I put my arms around his neck and pulled him even closer. "Actually, I have a pretty good idea," I said, just before I met his lips in a crushing kiss.

And another from Adrian's POV:

"Come here, she said in a voice that offered no argument.

My feet moved me forward, but all I could see was her. No skill of mine, no artist anywhere, could've immortalized how gorgeous she was. It was impossible to believe she'd ever had any doubts about her body. The firelight shone on her skin, golden and perfect, making her look like some radiant goddess of legend. I wanted to kneel before her and offer eternal obedience.

Yeah wow! I really enjoyed this book, especially reading from Adrian's POV.  Really looking forward to Silver Shadows (Bloodlines #5)
