Taste of Tuesdays is a regular feature from my blog giving a taste from a book or film or show I’m working on. Today’s teasers are from:
Immortal Devices (Steampunk Scarlett #2)
“Well, what have we here?” Aphrodite asked, looking Tavian up and down. She gave him an almost hungry look, but there was a slight turn to her smile that suggested she had mischief in mind too. “Do you have a name, sweet boy?”
“Tavian.” Tavian did not move back under the scrutiny of her gaze.
“A lovely name,” Aphrodite said. “But then, you are a most lovely young man. And fey too. What more could a girl ask for?” Her eyes shifted to Scarlett. “What more could a girl ask for, Scarlett? A vampire and one of the fey? Have you tried them yet? No, of course you haven’t.”

SIGHT (Wicked Woods #5)
“And you’re powerful enough to be a prime female.” Josh looked at her again. His hunger seemed to be under control, but he was definitely thinking of something else. “The most powerful werewolves, the alphas, call out to one another. They are attracted to one another. It helps to keep the pack strong. It’s why Kevin is so attracted to you, I imagine.”
“And not my sparkling personality?”
Josh laughed, and that helped to ease some of the tension. “That too, I guess. You know that Kevin is alpha material, right?”
– Briony and Josh, The Werewolf King
Fire Stones (Fire Wars #2)
“And in the bowl I saw five gemstones, each burning more brightly than the last, composed of five different colors – each glowing brightly, as if a storm were brewing beneath the smooth surfaces of the gem. I touched each of the stones in turn, feeling their warmth against my skin. “If you ever lose me,” I said, smiling. “If ever fate should separate us – then fear not. These five stones will lead you back to me. Always.” – Mackenzy
