Teaser Tuesday: Beauty and the Clockwork Beast by Nancy Campbell Allen


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books And A Beat.
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 and author so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
"After leaving the library and its surly master the night before, sleep had been a long time coming. And she hadn't retrieved a book from the library, which had been her goal in the first place." 
~16% through on my Kindle
This tale is a version of Beauty and the Beast in a steampunk setting. I'm about 55% through the story now. It reads like a gothic tale with steampunk dressing. There are shifters and vampires as well. So far, I am enjoying it. 
What's your teaser this week? Share it or a link in the comments so we can check it out and maybe add it to our ever-growing TBR list. Hope you're enjoying your read!
