Because Wendy Higgins is so totally awesome she has decided that each month she will be torturing us with a little teaser from Sweet Peril. It's been four months since she promised that, and so here I've compiled a list of teasers for your pleasure! Sweet Peril is one of my most anticipated reads of this year, and the teasers are to die for. Make me want to cry since I don't have the book now!
(This is the first time Anna and Kai see each other after the New Year's summit in NYC.)
The look in his eyes dared me to pull away again. I sunk my fingers into the hair at the nape of his neck.
“I’m trying to talk to you,” I said.
“Yes, I know. But I’d rather not.”
In one step he had me against the table, the back of my thighs hitting the edge as he pressed his body flush against mine.
A whimpering gasp sounded from my lips.
I tried not to stutter, grasping his hair tighter. “I need you to be serious.”
His blue eyes scorched me. “Oh, I’ve never been more serious.”

He’d hurt me plenty, and I refused to be his punching bag.
I wanted to stare Kaidan down, but when he turned to face me I was distracted by the girth of body beneath his face. I eyed the layers of muscle in his arms, chest, and abs. He was ripped!
Was he living at the gym these days? His already toned belly now boasted a six-pack. Muscles didn’t usually do it for me, but I had to admit his tall frame wore it well. I swallowed and looked back up where he’d been patiently waiting for me to finish my perusal.
I cleared my throat and crossed my arms.

“If this is about earlier, we were only kidding around,” Blake said.
“I told you she can be stubborn when she wants, didn’t I?” Kaidan asked, stretched out on his chair with his hands behind his head. “You didn’t believe me.”
“I’m not being stubborn!” I put my hands on my hips and scowled down at him, wondering if maybe I was being stubborn. He raised an eyebrow when I said, “And you have no room to talk. You’re a mule.”
Blake laughed and pointed at Kai. “She just called you an ass, man.”
“I am an ass-man,” Kai stated.
Blake laughed harder and I rolled my eyes.

I inched closer. I wanted to kiss him, but this would be no tame kiss. A low sound rumbled in the back of his throat and his fingers tightened on my sides. I shouldn’t push him when we were both like this, but I wanted to. He’d once told me I was playing with fire. I felt the tip of the flame now, the threat of being singed. I wanted to give in to that temptation and make him lose control. Mentally, I smacked myself, and the angel and demon girls within me brawled. Kicking. Screaming. Teeth and nails.Yowsa! There is soo much HEAT in this novel! But then again, Kaidan is here so of course there is heat!!
