My Tease for this week comes from:

Kiss of Fire
(Imdalind #1)

Rebecca Ethington

First - The Blurb:

Joclyn Despain has been marred by a brand on her skin. She doesn't know why the mark appeared on her neck, but she doesn't want anyone to see it, including her best friend Ryland, who knows everything else about her. The scar is the reason she hides herself behind baggy clothes, and won't let the idea of kissing Ryland enter her mind, no matter how much she wants to.
The scar is the reason she is being hunted.

If only she knew that she was.

If only she had known that the cursed stone her estranged father sent for her 16th birthday would trigger a change in her. Now, she is being stalked by a tall blonde man, and is miraculously throwing her high school bully ten feet in the air.

Joclyn attempts to find some answers and the courage to follow her heart. When Ryland finds her scar; only he knows what it means, and who will kill her because of it.

Second - The Tease:

I'm in so much trouble, aren't I?" His warm breath tickled my ear as he whispered to me.

My heart sputtered. "You have no idea."

"Then, I might as well do this thing thoroughly." He set me down again and kissed my jaw line. His lips lingered for a second longer than they should have, freezing me into place. I just hoped I didn't look too much like a deer stuck in headlights.

Kiss of Fire started off slow but picked up pace after the halfway mark. I enjoyed the story line but would have liked to see a little more romance between Jos and Ryland. It was hinted at but never seemed to progress very far.

  5. OMG! Your tease really made me giggle. Shame that the plot did not fully deliver but at least you were still able to experience toe curling moments.

  6. I love the teaser, Marilyn. I have this one waiting for me on my ereader. I'm glad it picked up eventually although I'm sad the romance wasn't there...particularly with that tease. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Hate when the romance is hinted at but no follow through- that is like baking a cake and then not eating it.
