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!
“’Yes?’ She asked brandishing the cutlass. ‘Was there more to the bargain?’
‘I have to bring a piece of him to her.’
‘A piece of him? A piece of my brother? How large a piece will satisfy Flay?’
‘I imagine a hand will do.’
“‘How fortunate he has two.’”
~ p. 120, The Kingmakers by Clay and Susan Griffith
I love this scene because I have two younger brothers that would have definitely reacted like this! ;o)
“‘Don’t. Even. Think about –‘
Isobel wrapped her arms around him, causing his DS to tumble out of his hands and onto the floor with a thump.
‘Watch out!’ he shouted. He yanked off his headphones. ‘Why are you touching me?’
He tried shoving her off, but Isobel remained attached long enough to plant a kiss on the side of his head.
‘Sick!’ he yelled, and pushed her away. ‘Get off!“

“What I couldn’t understand was what could be bad about something like that, something that was pure beauty, and why Mom never wanted to talk about it.
