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!
Kaki Warner, the author of Pieces of Sky is one of my discoveries of 2011. I enjoy the way her characters spring from the page and, despite Western historicals not being my book of choice, I enjoy the way Ms. Warner portrays the setting in her books. I’m definitely a fan.
Jessica stepped from the cabin into a breeze that felt like a gasp from hell. Squinting against sunlight so stark it robbed the world of color, she looked around.

and here’s another slightly longer one:
Yet it changed his entire face. The whiteness of such lovely teeth against his black mustache and sun-browed skin was contrast enough, but the transformation from scowl to rakish grin was astonishing. Boggling.
Oh my. Dimples too.

On a stagecoach traveling through New Mexico Territory, Jessica Thornton is a long way from the cool mists and lush gardens of her native England. An authoress and milliner, she carries the weight of a scandalous secret-a horrible shame that has brought her to the West on a desperate search for the only family she can trust: her brother.
No one prepared Jessica for the heat and the hardships. And no one prepared her for a man like Brady Wilkins. For, despite the rancher’s rough-hewn appearance and her own misgivings, Jessica must put her life in his hands after their stagecoach crashes. And she begins to see the man behind the callused hands and caustic wit. A man strong enough to carve out a home in the wilderness, brave enough to fight for his own, and passionate enough to restore her faith in herself-and in her heart.
