  1. Here is my teaser from Lipstick in Afghanistan by Roberta Gately (Page 1):

    "Do you hear it?" The voice was almost a whisper.

    Elsa held her breath, and then she heard it too, a faint rustling of footsteps over twigs and leaves. Out of the corner of her eye, she glimpsed several shadowy figures darting through the trees, and when she turned, she saw a glint of sunlight reflecting off the barrel of an assault rifle.

    There was no denying it—the Taliban had found them.

    Oh, Jesus! she thought. We'll never escape.

    Elsa knew the Taliban's ruthless hatred; the death and destruction they wrought was undeniable.

    Seized by a sickening wave of fear, she wanted to cry or throw up, but there was no time. She tried to catch Parween's eye, but her friend was looking back, intent on finding the source of the sound.

    "Run!" someone shouted, and suddenly, the chase was on.

  2. I have to say that I am only a few chapters into What Child Is This and it is WOW! It has had me gripped to the book. I hated puting it down to go to work today! Every break I had was spent reading.

  3. I'm glad I'm not the only one with two books going at once! XD

    Like the teasers! And thanks for stopping by my blog!

    Have a Merry Christmas!!

    Nice to see both teasers, I end up picking one book to spotlight, even if there are two I'm reading.
