Wicked Winter Red-A-Thon Challenge 7

Welcome to the first challenge of the last day of the Wicked Winter Read-a-Thon which is...

Tease at Random

I love taking part in the Teaser Tuesday meme, but I've noticed how sometimes the teasers can be very different to what the book is actually like. So when April and Rebecca gave me the chance to create my own challenge I thought of this and immediately started to wonder what would happen if teasers were taken throughout a book - would they be close to the real story, or would it create a whole new one?

For this challenge I would like you to tease me at random from your current read. All you need to do is to divide your book roughly into thirds and then randomly select two sentences from each third (so six in total) and put them together to give a good tease.

You can either leave your entry in the comments or leave me a link to your blog post.

One winner will be picked at random to win either a £5 gift certificate from Amazon UK or a $7.50 Amazon US gift certificate (winner's choice) so be sure to leave your email, twitter or some other way for me to contact you.
The Wolf Within (Alpine Woods Shifters, #3) "Good. Then there's nothing stopping you from having dinner with me tonight." Brendan smiled in satisfaction sure he had her.  But her eyes told a different story.  The sadness crept back into her gaze. (location 372)

"Owie," Brendan whined as Julie applied an ice pack to his jaw.  All the real pain was gone, his body having already healed the damage. But the way she held his head in her lap as they sat on his couch, stroking his hair with her hand, was more than enough motivatioon to put on a show. (location 967)

Water dripped down from her face, and she lifted her hand to it in cofusion.  Where was it coming from? Raising her fingers to eye level, she saw red smears on her fingertips. Not water. Blood.  The world spun, and she sank into the welcoming darkness.  At least she wouldn't be concious as Jay tore into her. (location 1570)
