Teaser Tuesday and a Jaz Primo Giveaway

Teaser Tuesday AND Giveaway – Sunset Vampire Series by Jaz Primo

  This week’s Teaser Tuesday is a little different from the usual posting.  That’s because this week is going to be Jaz Primo week here  on Jennifer's blog at  Books and Barks  and will also be featured here on Alaskan Book Cafe!  On Jennifer's blog a teaser from Jaz's first book Sunrise at Sunset will be found today.  Tomorrow Jaz is going to make a special appearance on her blog and Thursday the review for book two in the series, A Bloody London Sunset, will also be posted on both blogs. 

Jennifer and I will each be giving away a Kindle set that includes both books that are currently out in the series.  The giveaway will run from August 9th to August 19th (11:59pm ET) and is open to all US Residents age 18 and over.  Please read the GIVEAWAY POLICY before 

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by  MizB of http://shouldbereading.wordpress.com/

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!

A Bloody London Sunset (Sunset Vampire, #2)

The dagger hammered into Caleb's upper chest with a force that caused him to topple backwards from the impact. Intense pain cascaded through his chest and shoulder, and the sword slipped from his hands and skittered across the floor towards Katrina.

"Humans didn't fare so well against you today. And someday, vampires won't find yopu as easy a target, either," she remarked sagely.
"Good. I'm tired of playing the victim," hr remarked acidly.

Ghost on Black Mountain

How long can I live with this deed? Where can I go from here? God, I know you don't want to hear from me, but Hobb's beat me. You let him. He would have killed me. Freedom isn't freedom after all.

Hobbs Pritchard was a walking, talking mess of meaness. I wasn't never going to tell Nellie nothing those spirits wanted, no way, nohow. I was staying out of it.

"Miss Paynr," said the judge, " has counsel made you aware that by refusing to testify as to the identies of the abortionist and the child's father, you're adding six years to your sentence?"
"Yes," she replied.

"It's a lovely name," said Hannah.
Something flickered in the girl's eyes. "That's the only thing they let you keep here." She left, closing the door softly behind her.
