Teaser Tuesday - Safe in His Arms, By: Dana Corbit

Safe in His Arms


From the book cover.

She Wants To Remember. He Wishes He Could Forget.
Lindsay Collins can't remember the accident that injured her and took her sister's life six months ago—but someone can. Trooper Joe Rossetti can't seem to get the images of that night out of his head. Plagued with guilt for not being able to do more to save Lindsay's sister, Joe doesn't want to get close to Lindsay. But when he sees her struggle to relate to the orphaned niece she's now raising, he can't walk away. Lindsay and Joe will have to face their pain and doubts together in order to make a new family bloom.

My Teaser: Page 20

“Miss Collins,” Clara called after her and waited until she looked back at her. “Have you ever considered that you might be better off not remembering every detail of your accident? That knowing might only cause more pain?”

“Yes, I’ve thought about that. I’ve been thinking about that for the past six months.” Lindsay chewed the side of her lower lip and then straightened and nodded. She could do this; she owed it to Delia. She would get this right for her sake. “And I still want to know.”



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

1.    Grab your current read
2.    Open to a random page
3.    Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
4.    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!)
5.    Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or share your ‘teasers’ in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks!

Hmm, interesting. It makes me wonder why she owes it to Delia and not herself. It also makes me wonder how horrific the accident really was. Good teaser!!

That poses an interesting question.. I don't know if I would want to know or not.. I think the mind protects us from things it thinks we can't handle sometimes by forgetting them..
