Teaser Tuesday: The Taming of a Scottish Princess by Karen Kawkins

Monday, May 14, 2012

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 the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

I adore Karen Hawkins's Hurst Amulet series and since the beginning of the series, I've been eager for this book in particular. Michael Hurst and his assistant, Jane Smythe-Haughton, are so much fun when they're bickering.

Teaser:
"She patted his arm as if he were a child of two and said in a soothing tone, "I'm certain that once we're under way, your sense of adventure will awaken."

"My sense of adventure will not rise until noon."
*The Taming of a Scottish Princess by Karen Hawkins, page 53 of arc copy (book releases 5/22/12)


Book Description:
The Taming of a Scottish Princess CoverA DETERMINED EXPLORER
When famed Egyptologist Michael Hurst discovers that the infamous Hurst Amulet is hidden in Scotland, he insists his trusted assistant, Miss Jane Smythe-Haughton, accompany him north. Strangely, the usually unflappable Jane seems perturbed by their destination—the mysterious Isle of Barra. A fascinated Michael watches as his staid assistant transforms, revealing intriguing layers of mystery and vulnerability. Could he be about to uncover not one, but two, precious treasures?

A DAUNTLESS PRINCESS
Once her clan’s princess, Jane fled Barra years ago to avoid a forced marriage. Since then, she has made her living as efficient Miss Smythe-Haughton—the perfect (and highly paid) assistant. Now she must confront her secrets . . . including her feelings for her irascible employer, too-handsome-for-his-own-good Michael Hurst.

A PERILOUS PLEASURE
Others are also searching for the missing amulet, however. Can Jane and Michael learn to trust each other in time to solve two riddles: the location of the Hurst Amulet, and the meaning of the vivid passion flaring between them?
