Teaser Tuesday #2

Description: A weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading where you share two teasers from your current read in order to get others to seek out that book.

So, I'm thinking that this weeks Teaser Tuesday will be on Sarah J. Mass' The Assassin's Blade. Not a lot of people have read the novellas, heck I didn't even know there were novellas xD

A block of stone crashed near her. Celaena’s heart gave a lurch. Sam.
He couldn't be dead. Not from that dagger, or those dozen pirates, or from the catapult. No, Sam couldn't be so stupid that he’d get himself killed. She’d … she’d … Well, she’d kill him if he was dead. 
Drawing her sword despite the ache in her arm, she made to rush into the half-wrecked tower, but a dagger pressed against her neck halted her in her tracks.
“I don’t think so,” Rolfe whispered in her ear.


But embracing Sam was different, somehow. Like she wanted to curl into his warmth, like for one moment, she didn’t have to worry about anything or anybody. 
“Sam,” she murmured into his chest. 
She peeled away from him, stepping out of his arms. “If you ever tell anyone about me embracing you … I’ll gut you.” 
Sam gaped at her, then tipped his head back and laughed. He laughed and laughed, until dust lodged in his throat and he launched into a coughing fit. She let him suffer through it, not finding it very funny at all.
When he could breathe again, Sam cleared his throat. “Come on, Sardothien,” he said, slinging an arm around her shoulders. “If you’re done liberating slaves and destroying pirate cities, then let’s go home.” 
Celaena glanced at him sidelong and grinned.

I just love Sam! I can't wait for more of their relationship! I hope you guys enjoyed the teasers ;)
