#TeaserTuesday + Opening Paragraph-Harlot at the Homestead by @MissWishlade

Welcome to Teaser Tuesday hosted by Should Be Reading and First Chapter, First Paragraph hosted by Bibliophile By The Sea.

This is Kay and I'm hosting the meme this week while Maya is away. I'm reading Harlot at the Homestead by Molly Ann Wishlade.

Here's the opener:

“Kenan!” The cry pierced the night like a flaming arrow. “Help me!”
Kenan jumped to his feet, instantly alert. Just moments ago he’d been slumped in the fireside chair, losing the battle against exhaustion as the rain pattering against the windows and the crackling of the fire had lulled him to sleep. After two months on the cattle trail, he’d been relieved to be back at the Duggan homestead and his mind and body had begun to unwind.
But someone needed help. He grabbed his gun belt from the floor by the chair and fastened it around his waist.
"Kenan!" The anguished cry came again, carried on a voice filled with pain and fear.

Here's the teaser:

Catherine emerged from behind Rosie and Kenan held his breath. He dug his fingernails into his palms to try to still their trembling. As she walked toward him, he glared at the vision who had haunted his day dreams, screamed for his help and protection in his nightmares and robbed him of all belief in his masculinity.

~ page 3 ePub, Harlot at the Homestead by Molly Ann Wishlade

Here's the blurb:

When Catherine Montgomery shows up at Kenan Duggan’s homestead, she expects him to be surprised. She’s been gone two years and she’s devastated to hear that her former fiancé was forced to give her up for dead.
Catherine never stopped thinking about Kenan and hoped that they’d be reunited one day. She has suffered at the hands of another but nothing tortured her as much as being apart from the man she loves. She doubts, however, that Kenan will be able to forgive her when she reveals her secrets.
As Kenan battles his desire for revenge, their mutual desire reawakens like a creek bed in the rain, and soon they are swept up in rediscovering their all-consuming passion.

What do you think? Did it grab you? Would you read on?

  18. I really liked the first paragraph and the teaser. A little bit of mystery there. The only thing that didn't grab me was the plot description. I'm not sure about the whole book. I'd probably read the first chapter before deciding.

  19. At least, he's willing to help a person in trouble. He's quick to grab his gun belt. He doesn't seem like a mean guy.

  20. Love the teasers! Sounds like my kind of read!
