Teaser Tuesday: "Captive Dreams"

It's Tuesday again, which means it's time for me to post a few snippets from my current book!
As many of you probably already know, 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 (or short paragraphs) 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!
Here's the book I'm currently reading:

Title: Captive Dreams

Authors: Angela Knight and Diane Whiteside

Genre: Contemporary/Futuristic (Yes, it sounds like a weird combination, but you'd have to read it to know what I mean)

Publisher: Penguin Group (USA) Incorporated

Publication Date: December 2008

Summary (B&N):

Celeste and Corinne Carson are more than sisters—they're both bestselling writers, each with an alpha-male hero who fulfills the wildest fantasies of readers. For Celeste, it's Jarred, a conqueror from the future. For Corinne, it's the barbarian Mykhayl from a world long ago. Devilishly sensual warriors, Jarred and Mykhayl have something in common with themselves—they're both far more real than their beautiful creators could have imagined.

Fearing that the sisters are baout to write them off with a single stroke of the pen, Jarred and Mykhayl decide to exact hot, sweet revenge. The plan? Kidnap Celeste and Corinne, spirit them away to the very worlds of which they wrote, and force them to surrender to the sublime punishments of their own uninhibited imaginations...

My Teaser, from Page 180:

"Svetlhana," Khyber rumbled warningly. "You wouldn't dare cause trouble."

She gave him a disguested look. "I would indeed dare, but you will never give me the chance. You will probably return within five minutes, after becoming a hero by rescuing her sister. And I will have to forgive you for having adventures without me," she sniffed.

So far, I'm loving this book-- for one thing, it's Angele Knight (well, the one story is, at least). And for another, it's a good plot line, interesting, and the characters are great. The men are very Alpha Male, which I love, yet they show signs of becoming a bit tamer after they've fallen for their woman. :D


Until Next Time, The Book Queen
