Tuesday Teaser–Home by Calisa Rhose

 (A Meme by Should Be Reading…)

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!

My choice for this week is an historical romance I’ve been reading.

Home by Calisa Rhose.

I can’t say which page this is as it’s an ebook..but…um, it’s about halfway through:

“Ma was bugging me about something.”
Ah, Mrs. C. Did he think that explained everything? She nodded. “How is Mrs. C.?”
“Insistent when she wants her way.” Sam smiled ruefully. “Sorry, guess that doesn’t say much. She…lost something, and wants me to find it.”
“Oh.” Her mind? Poppy instantly felt guilty for the thought and looked to see if Sam had somehow heard her, but he sat staring at a line of ants streaming up a nearby oak tree. “Any luck? I s’pose not, if she’s still wanting it found.”

 What is it Sam’s mom wants him to find? You’ll have to read Home to find out.


What could a gypsy and a Vietnam veteran have in common? Silvertown’s outcast, Poppy Tippen, has loved football hero Sam “The Force” Callahan forever. But he never seemed to know she was alive. Now he’s home from the war and she suddenly finds herself comforting him from the demons of “that damn war.” Is his attention merely an escape from the haunting nightmares? Or does she hold the interest of the only man she’s ever truly loved? Sam Callahan’s only solace from the war nightmares wrecking his life comes in the unlikely form of a gypsy girl with stigmas of her own. He’s known Poppy his entire life, but there’s something different about her now. Something special he desperately wants to hold on to. Can he convince her she’s the only thing he needs to put the past behind him?

If you’d like to give it a try HOME it’s available at The Wild Rose Press, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble.
