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!
This week my teaser comes from page 254 of The Princeling by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles, the third book in the Morland Dynasty series.
She guessed it was partly to protect her: she knew in some obscure way that though he was within the Council, he was not in accord with them, that his idea was to remove Morton, whom he hated, and replace him with the ex-Queen as Regent for her own son. Though he had not discussed it with her, Lettice understood now something of the way his mind worked, and she could almost hear his voice saying, "The Queen would wield no power, but she would prevent anyone else usurping that power".
This isn't my first teaser from this series. Way back in February I gave a teaser from the first book in the series, The Founding.
