Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
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 to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Tease for this week comes from:
(The Violet Eden Chapters #3)
Once again Violet Eden faces an impossible choice ... and the consequences are unimaginable.
Violet has come to terms with the fact that being part angel, part human, means her life will never be as it was.
Now Violet has something Phoenix - the exiled angel who betrayed her - will do anything for, and she has no intention of letting it fall into his hands. The only problem is that he has something she needs too.
Not afraid to raise the stakes, Phoenix seemingly holds all the power, always one step ahead. And when he puts the final pieces of the prophecy together, it doesn't take him long to realize exactly who he needs in order to open the gates of Hell.
With the help of surprising new allies, ancient prophecies are deciphered, a destination set and, after a shattering confrontation with her father, Violet leaves for the islands of Greece without knowing if she will have a home to return to...
Second - The Tease:
"You smell of winter dew at the first crack of dawn and when you use your power it feels like being submerged in the most intoxicating vanilla cream that I lose myself in it every time and... And you were beautiful," he blurted out, catching us both by surprise. But he went on, ignoring the fact my hand was still slipping. "So stunning in that dress the other night I could hardly look at you it hurt so much. You are the thing I dread the most in myself, Violet, because... I love you so much that I can't trust myself. I'd die for you, give up all my power for you, I'd give you my soul in an instant, even if it meant I had to spend eternity in torment - just for one moment with you as mine. Wanting you consumes me. I dread you because I know the risk but I'm so selfish I want you anyway. I'd take you even though it could kill you."
I know this may not really be classified as a tease but it is easily my most favorite scene in this book so I just had to share it with you. I probably should point out that Violet is hanging over the edge of a volcano while Lincoln finally confesses his true feelings for her.
