Teaser Tuesday (May 5)

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should be Reading.
The rules are as follows:

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 does not 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!

"Wolsey had corrupted the text to suit his purpose, as Michael suspected the cardinal dealt with all things. The true meaning was infinitely crueler: a dream shattered the instant it came true. Renee would never look at him again as she had today when he gave her his jousting prize. Why had he allowed her to discover his terrible ailment?"

pg. 284, Royal Blood by Rona Sharon


Still reading this book and enjoying it. The "terrible ailment" in the story is a silent plot line. It's there, and you notice it, but not overly so. If that makes it any sense.

I am really trying to finish this before Friday for my contest, so I can post my review. Unfortunately work is crazy busy, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I may be extending the contest another week.

I could post my teaser on my blog....but makes more sense to me to do it here. My book is Briar Rose by Jane Yolen as per your vote Jenny. Here are my two teasers:

In the middle of Marge's second opinion on the state of Oswego affairs, Becca suddenly got up and went into the hallway where she had left the rosewood box. She brought it into the living room, cradling it in her arms as if it were a newborn.I'm only on the first few chapters so i can't tell you too much about the book other than it is enjoyable so far.

Good Teaser Jenny! May 18th my blog will be featuring Rona Sharon the author of Royal Blood in a personal interview. It should be very interesting :-). Can't wait to read your review.
