Once again, I'm a rebel. Here are my multiple teasers, none of them fitting the "two line" mold:

from Eternal by Cynitha Leitich Smith:

I skip to an arched window of the pink-and-black suite, unofficially called the nursery, and wave to subjects arriving via the red carpet. Cameras flash, and jewels sparkle. I'm finally the life of the party. All I had to do was die.

from A Kiss of Shadows by Laurell K. Hamilton:

Jeremy didn't know what I was. No one at the agency knew. I was one of the weakest members of the royal court, but being sidhe means something even on the weak end of the scale. It meant that I had successfully hidden my true self, my true abilities, from a handful of the best magicians and psychics in the city. Maybe in the country. No small feat, but the kind of glamour I was best at wouldn't keep a knife from finding my back or a spell from crushing my heart.

from Maus: My Father Bleeds History by Art Spiegelman

  3. Ha! That's a very snappy teaser for eternal. I really loved Tantalize.

  5. So far, I am thinking Tantalize was the better of the two, but it's picking up.
