Teaser Tuesdays: Persephone & Twice Tempted

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB @ Should Be Reading.

Today I have two teasers one from Persephone by Kaitlin Bevis and one from Twice Tempted by Jeaniene Frost.

Teaser #1:
I could feel someone watching me. Eyes boring a hole in the back of my neck, crawling over my skin.

-1%, Kindle

~Persephone (Daughters of Zeus #1) by Kaitlin Bevis
ebook, 237 pages
Published July 6th 2012 by Musa Publishing
There are worse things than death, worse people too.

The “talk” was bad enough, but how many teens get told that they’re a goddess? When her mom tells her, Persephone is sure her mother has lost her mind. It isn’t until Boreas, the god of winter, tries to abduct her that she realizes her mother was telling the truth. Hades rescues her, and in order to safely bring Persephone to the Underworld he marks her as his bride. But Boreas will stop at nothing to get Persephone. Despite her growing feelings for Hades, Persephone wants to return to the living realm. Persephone must find a way to defeat Boreas and reclaim her life.


Teaser #2:
Then he leaned down, breath warm on my neck as he whispered his next words. "You've wondered if I felt differently about you since your abilities diminished. Let this serve as your answer."

~Twice Tempted (Night Prince #2) by Jeaniene Frost
Mass Market Paperback, 360 pages
Published March 26th 2013 by Avon
Dating the Prince of Darkness has its challenges...

Leila's psychic abilities have been failing her, and now she isn't sure what the future holds. If that weren't enough, her lover, Vlad, has been acting distant. Though Leila is a mere mortal, she's also a modern woman who refuses to accept the cold shoulder treatment forever–especially from the darkly handsome vampire who still won't admit that he loves her.

Like choosing between eternal love and a loveless eternity...

Soon circumstances send Leila back to the carnival circuit, where tragedy strikes. And when she finds herself in the crosshairs of a killer who may be closer than she realizes, Leila must decide who to trust– the fiery vampire who arouses her passions like no other or the tortured knight who longs to be more than a friend? With danger stalking her every step of the way, all it takes is one wrong move to damn her for eternity.
