TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:
Grab your current read.
Let the book fall open to a random page.
Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
Please avoid spoilers!
Two teasers today, because I couldn’t pick between the books I’m reading:
“He was handsome as a god, made King not long before, still happy with his Spanish bride. They’d come to see his sister off, to make her royal match to doddering old King Louis.”
– The Secret Diary of Anne Boleyn, by Robin Maxwell, p. 140
“Maria Theresa perceived that Marie Antoinette had lost her youthful air. Clearly the dauphine’s bedeviled life among people who constantly gossiped and intrigued was taking its toll.”
– In Triumph’s Wake: Royal Mothers, Tragic Daughters, and the Price They Paid for Glory, by Julia P. Gelardi, p. 200
