I know that there are a lot of people out there who are serious fans of the Benedict series. The first two books are out, Finding Sky and Stealing Pheonix, and the 3rd book will be released in October 2012, Seeking Crystal. And because I know you Benedict fans are just desperate to read a little bit of Seeking Crystal, I have decided to post a few teasers every few weeks.
Without further ado, here are the teasers you have been waiting for:
"Xav reeled theoretically with a second dose of surprise. 'Whoa, your one big lady. I mean tall lady. I bet you never had any problem making the basketball team in school?'"
"'Diamond's the same. But look at me, Xav, and tell me what you think is going on here. I saw your brother and my sister - bang: instant link, just like that.' I studied my nails; I'd managed to get them French polished so could pretend to admire them. 'I don't quite see that for us, do you?'
"He forced himself to look back at me. 'Cupcake, you look good enough to eat as I'm sure you know. Be careful: I don't want to have to rush to your rescue when you get overwhelmed with admirers. I don't trust these guys.'
And the last one:
"The front door to the shop banged open.
Damn, damn, damn - it was Xav. I ducked my head. Signora Carriera, who had got up when the bell to serve the customer, raised a brow.
'That's your young man, isn't it?'
Not exactly my young man. 'Is it?' I croaked.
'Crystal, I know you're here,' Xav bellowed.
The signora checked her watch. 'Why don't you take your lunch break? It sounds like he has something to get off his chest.'
'Aren't we busy?' Please let us be busy.
'Crystal.' The signora looked disappointed in me. If he wants to make a fuss, I'd prefer it to happen off the premises. I do have a business to run.'
With a sigh, I got up. I couldn't refuse her. By the end of the day, Signora Carriera might be my only friend in Venice.
I breezed into the showroom. 'Hi, Xav.'
He slapped a newspaper down on the counter, folded back to the gossip column. 'What the hell is this?'"
I can't post too many! Joss Stirling and the Oxford Press would kill me! Don't forget to add Seeking Crystal to you Goodreads to-read list HERE! I also posted a teaser a few weeks back that you can check out HERE!
Until next time,
