Teaser Tuesday 10.12.10

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading and it asks us to...
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share a couple of “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 Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers.
Isalys's Teaser:
"His shoulder jerked, the tension that had been coiled in them unexpectedly releasing.  The phantom tingle of her hand slid onto his arm.  It was almost warm, almost heavy, its rhythmic strokes soothing.  Lulled, he rolled forward onto his face.

"Your wrists!" she gasped, cradling one.  His skin was raw from tugging against the rope that had bound him to the whipping post.  The bruise did not hurt when her tingling touch skated over it.  For whatever reason, her could feel her more clearly now.  She had cool, slender fingers - gentle and slightly shy.  She was comforting him, ludicrous though it was.

"Stop that," he grumbled, the words slurring.

He would never know if she listened.  Sleep swept over him in a thick black tide."

~p. 34 from "Devil at Midnight" by Emma Holly
