Advent Calendar Day 19

As I mentioned last week we're doing the teasers creative exercise again (by the way, last week's go-round was FABULOUS) only this time it's series specific.

This time your teasers have to be from any book in the Dangerous Ground series.


The challenge of course is to find catchy lines short enough to fit into a visually arresting photo--that's the key to creating a great teaser. And no one is better at that than my dear friend Johanna Ollila, so I'm using her work again as examples (although--I find this so funny--she couldn't come up with DG teasers either!) :-D

Once again, we'll randomly select four people from the comment section below to receive their choice of magnet from one of Johanna's lovely teaser magnets!

  2. I restrained myself, because I just couldn't post all of the books...

    It had to be true love. Because if Taylor’s only incentive for getting himself off that mountainside was his own health and welfare, he’d have been happy to spend the rest of his — few — days right where he was. But Will’s only hope was Taylor, so he tried to work up a little enthusiasm.

    The bottom line is, I want to wake up beside you every morning, and I want to go to bed with you every night. I don’t care who knows. And I don’t care what we have to do to make that happen. I like my job, but I love you. There’s no question of what takes priority here.”
    Old Poison

    Will groped one-handed, found his cuffs, and tossed them at Taylor. “You fucking shot me, MacAllister.” “I know, Will. I’m very sorry.”
    Blood Heat

    “Better than David Bradley?” “He’s not even in your weight division, sweetheart.” Taylor laughed. “Sure.”

  3. "That was one reason you didn’t want to get involved. But you said it yourself this morning. We’ve been involved a long time -- regardless of what we call ourselves: friends, lovers, partners. We’re a team, Will. We always have been. We always will be.”
    Taylor & Will, Dangerous Ground - J. Lanyon

  4. I love you.... Three little words. Three of the most common words in the world, but string them together and they were more powerful than any warrant, any extradition papers, or even treaty. Stronger than any magical spell.

  5. Here're a few (a bit belated, but still...LOL). :-)

    He looked at Taylor. Taylor looked back at him. He was smiling faintly, a complicated sort of smile. There was complete understanding there, and a little friendly mockery, and something else. What?
    Kick Start (Chapter 1)

    "Tay. No. I did not ask to work with Bradley. I don't want to work with anyone but you. I don't want to BE with anyone but you. Why don't you believe me?" TAY. The only time William called him that was in bed. Hearing it in this context was disconcerting but reassuring.
    Old Poison (Chapter 3)

    Will was groaning. "Christ God almighty, Taylor..." His voice sounded desperate. On the edge of tears. Will was more shocked than Taylor was — and Taylor calmed a little, listening, absorbing the truth of that.
    Dangerous Ground (Chapter 4)

  6. The most dangerous man Will knew rested sweetly in his arms, trusting him with his love as he trusted Will to guard his life. It was beyond precious. Life, love, was made up of fragile moments like these. Fragile as Paris moonlight. Dead Heat

  7. Nothing specific, per se, but there is an underlying current in 'Blood Heat' that is both heartbreaking and poignant -- Taylor listening to Will's lies about France, and Will knowing he's lying to both Taylor and himself, knowing but not accepting that Taylor knows he's lying. Writing at its finest.

  8. First time. Dangerous Ground, Chapter 4:

    “Yeah, you’re right,” Taylor said shakily, locking his arms around Will’s shoulders, hugging him back tightly. “No big deal.”

    “Christ, shut up,” Will said unsteadily.

    “Thank God we did this. Now we don’t have to ever think about it again.”

    “If you don’t want me to drown you, shut up,” Will said. He was laughing, but his laugh cracked.

    I always remember this line with a smile: “Thank God we did this. Now we don’t have to ever think about it again.” :)

    1. LOL. I was chuckling at these exact lines—once again—only yesterday. Loving this bit so much. :-)
