Teaser Tuesday #6

Tuesday, May 15, 2012 with 16 comments
Teaser Tuesday 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!

This week's teaser comes from the following book:

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Goodreads

Title:  Of Poseidon
Author:  Anna Banks
Series:  1st book in the Of Poseidon series
Publisher:  Feiwel & Friends
Publication Date:  May 22, 2012
Source:  ARC

Galen is the prince of the Syrena, sent to land to find a girl he’s heard can communicate with fish. Emma is on vacation at the beach. When she runs into Galen—literally, ouch!—both teens sense a connection. But it will take several encounters, including a deadly one with a shark, for Galen to be convinced of Emma’s gifts. Now, if he can only convince Emma that she holds the key to his kingdom . . .

Told from both Emma and Galen’s points of view, here is a fish-out-of-water story that sparkles with intrigue, humor, and waves of romance.

My teaser:

"I've outstayed my welcome here.  I will never be invited back.  My chances with Galen ended when I tackled his sister.  And when I punched her.  And just now, when I kick her so hard she dry heaves." -- p. 101 of ARC

Whoa!  This sounds promising!  I was looking for a romantical teaser when I stumbled across this gem, and it sounded like way more fun.  Can't wait to see what this is the result of!
