Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Should be Reading:

  • 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!

This week's teaser comes from page 249 of The Last Queen by C W Gortner:

After dispatching my letter, Philip had had no choice but to reach accord with my father, after which he ordered a flurry of preparations to rival the intensity of the winter storms. Now he strode about like a king anointed shouting orders left and right with Don Miguel scampering at his heels, and leaving me to mull over this unexpected turn of events.


  1. Good teaser Marg. I've got this book sitting on my nightstand. I'll be watching for your review.

  2. It's really good so far Dar.

  3. I won this but I haven't started it yet. It sounds like a good story though!

  4. Oh - I just love historical fiction, and I've been eyeing this one for quite a while - thanks for the teaser.

    Here's my Teaser! ~ Wendi

  5. Great teaser! I am really looking forward to reading this book. I'm glad someone else wrote about Juana the Mad.
