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:

Title:  Ironskin
Author:  Tina Connolly
Series:  Ironskin #1
Publisher:  Tor Books

Jane Eliot wears an iron mask.

It’s the only way to contain the fey curse that scars her cheek. The Great War is five years gone, but its scattered victims remain—the ironskin.

When a carefully worded listing appears for a governess to assist with a "delicate situation"—a child born during the Great War—Jane is certain the child is fey-cursed, and that she can help.

Teaching the unruly Dorie to suppress her curse is hard enough; she certainly didn’t expect to fall for the girl’s father, the enigmatic artist Edward Rochart. But her blossoming crush is stifled by her own scars, and by his parade of women. Ugly women, who enter his closed studio...and come out as beautiful as the fey.

Jane knows Rochart cannot love her, just as she knows that she must wear iron for the rest of her life. But what if neither of these things is true? Step by step Jane unlocks the secrets of her new life—and discovers just how far she will go to become whole again.

My teaser:

He leaned closer and she could smell the spirits on his breath.  His cheeks were flushed.  "Perhaps you are not as naïve as you seem. Perhaps you know that your charms could win a man in the dark, before he sees the imperfections under your mask." -- p. 85

Oh, the nerve of that cheeky bast---...oops! Almost forgot this was a family-friendly blog there for a minute. :P I haven't gotten to this part yet, but I'm already prepared to lay the hurt on this guy. I certainly hope he is not the love interest!


  1. This one sounds really good. I'll have to add it to my wishlist. I agree...I hope he is not the love interest. My teasers are from Eve and Adam by Katherine Applegate and Michael Grant and Midnight Exposure by Melinda Leigh. Happy reading!
