Teaser Tuesday: Karma by Carly Phillips

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 simply love Carly Phillips's Serendipity series. I recently got my arc of book 3, Karma, and couldn't resist diving in. Since I just started, I pulled my teaser from right where I'm at in the book.

"Liza drummed her fingers against her purse as she waited for Brian to be brought up from the holding area. She wondered if the cell in the back of the police station had a plaque engraved with her brother's name on it."
*Karma by Carly Phillips, page 8 of arc copy (book releases 5/1/12)

Book Description:
Karma CoverPolice Officer Dare Barron has had a crush on Liza McKnight ever since he was a teenager. But despite his lifelong attraction, the closest he's ever come to interacting with her is watching Liza regularly bail out her brother at the station.

Dare's dark past with Liza's brother, Brian, has always kept him from pursuing her. But suddenly Liza finds herself in need of protection and Dare appoints himself as the man for the job. And while the sizzling attraction between Dare and Liza draws them together, the past that Dare and Brian share threatens to keep the two apart forever.

Hi Kat,

Some great teaser lines.

Romance isn't a genre that I read all the time, but they do make great lighter interludes between the crime/thrillers that I love to read.

Have a good week,
