Teaser Tuesdays: A Little Scandal Never Hurt Anyone. Much.

by Ann-Katrina

Teaser Tuesdays Happy Tuesday! It’s time again for another edition of Teaser Tuesdays

Here are the rules:

  • Grab your current read
  • Let the book fall open to a random page
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • You also need to share the title of the book where you get your teaser from…that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given
  • Please avoid spoilers

Sex with Kings cover This week’s teaser:

"As her priest rose to go, she gave one last, shining smile and said, ‘One moment, Monsieur le Curé, and we will go away together.’ Her lungs–never strong, now utterly defeated–rattled out the last breath of air." pg. 217 Sex With Kings: Five Hundred Years of Adultery, Power, Rivalry, and Revenge by Eleanor Herman

So far, I’m finding that I like Herman’s writing style very much. She makes history tantalizing…it doesn’t hurt that her subject matter gave her much to work with. :)

    Hey, long time since I’ve “spoken” to ya! Hope you are good.

    Here’s my teaser, from Vanishing by Deborah Willis:

    “And it’s not that these hands are capable of anything unremarkable; she is not, for example, a surgeon or a concet pianist. But her hands are slim and bare–and she doesn’t wear jewelry–and he like to watch them pull cards from the shoe and drop them on the table.”
