(RE-POSTED: Original post was eaten alive when I tanked my blog in October 2009. Comments, if any, haven’t been rescued. Yet.)
Note: I scheduled this entry in advance so that it posts at 8:00 AM. Sometimes I’ll be late getting the link posted on the host’s blog.
It’s Tuesday. Where are you? asks:
Where is reading taking you today?
My name is Andrea Nash, Order of Knights of Merciful Aid. My best friend is Kate Daniels, the normal narrator of these tales. She’s out on medical leave and I’m filling in for her. I live in an alternate reality Atlanta, where magic comes and goes, vampires are mindless and ugly — definitely not date material — and shape-shifting is caused by a virus. My current assignment is to figure out why a three-headed dog is chasing a shape-shifter.

Teaser Tuesdays asks you to:
Grab your current read.
Let the book fall open to a random page.
Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12. You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
Please avoid spoilers!
I walked past them into the armory, opened the glass case, took Boom Baby out, grabbed a box of Silver Hawk cartridges, and walked out.
Nobody said a word.

Why I picked this book:
The book is an anthology featuring stories by Charlaine Harris, Nalini Signh, Ilona Andrews, and Meljean Brook. I’m not reading the stories in order, so it’s possible that the book will show up again in another Teaser post. I chose this story because I’m already familiar with the world it is set in and I love the series.
Extra: I came across two more sentences from Duel of Hearts that I just had to share.
She may be allied with a lunatic, but at least he was an intelligent lunatic. (pg. 114)
Lilah was saved from falling into conversation with the sheep by Drake’s firm hand reconnecting with hers. (pg. 116)
