Teaser Tuesdays (2/16)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

She placed brow-sugar packets between the creamer and the saccharine. "But look! It's the sugars coming to protect us!" Now, thoroughly enjoying herself, she gave the sugar packets swords too. "Saccharine charges"- she moved the packets forward- "but the sugars battle them back with skill and the darkness within us all. They're not afraid to kill and destroy in the name of justice- and cold, hard cash."

Jess grinned, extremely pleased with her presentation. But when she looked up at Smitty, he sat there with his elbow on the table, his chin resting in the palm of his hand, and he was staring at her.

"What?" she demanded. "That's not clear?"
