Teaser Tuesday: Local Custom by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller

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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Local Custom
Authors: Sharon Lee and Steve Miller
Publication: Ace (January 29, 2002)



An entire culture that counted coup. that held melant'i and the keeping of melant'i to be vital work. A culture cutthroat and competitive in every imaginable area, where people were divided into two camps -- kin and opponents.

On Liad there were never first winners and last winners.

On Liad, you won. Or you lost.

This is a Flashback book for me. I do not know how many times I have read it. Certainly, I have read it at least a dozen times. It is a romance across cultures - vastly different cultures.
