Alienated - Melissa LandersAlienated by Melissa Landers

And if winning at chess wouldn’t restore her good cheer, he’d have to find another way to release  enough endorphins to improve her mood,

He left his room and marched into the kitchen, where he prepared the richest, most indulgent, and disgusting dish imaginable- a bowl of fudge ripple ice cream topped with chocolate syrup, semi-sweet chocolate morsels, chocolate sprinkles, and, for good measure, a chocolate brownie from the pantry. He even garnished it with a handful of M&Ms.

This had to help. (52% eARC Kindle)

Ha, so much chocolate! The things you do for love. So if you’re wondering why Aelyx thinks chocolate is so disguising, because on their planet their food is super plain and bland, but he still makes her the ultimate chocolate dessert to cheer Cara up. Aww right? That amount of chocolate will definitely increase some endorphin.

Curtsies & Conspiracies - Gail CarrigerCurtsies & Conspiracies by Gail Carriger

“ladies, today we leave off knife fighting and move on to the most useful of all skills”

The werewolf paused dramatically. The young ladies about him inhaled in anticipation.

“Running away,” said Captain Niall with a flourish.

The faces about him were crestfallen; running away was hardly a romantic pursuit. Except when one was running to Gretna Green. (24& Kindle)

First of all, I love the cover, so pretty! Secondly, hahahaa. Running away is very useful skill (see: Zombieland, rule #1: Cardio). And thirdly, ha, I just love that last line. Oh Grenta Green, even in paranormal steampunks.

    What great teasers! I’m not going to lie, I’m not a chocolate fan so that much chocolate would drive me mad but I love how he makes her this huge chocolate monstrosity to cheer her up. The second teaser is awesome! It has a beautiful cover, the teaser is super cute, and it is definitely on my TBR pile now! Here is my Teaser Tuesday
