Tuesday Teasers: "The Crown" and "Deceit"


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should  Be Reading. Anyone can play along, so I thought  I  would play for fun! 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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can  add the book to their TBR  Lists  if they  like your teaser.   
Gerard's:
A grim laugh from Bishop Gardiner. "With Cromwell's spies everywhere, watching everything I do? I think not."
His eyes settled on me.
"No, Sister Joanna, I'm not going to find the Athelstan crown. You are."
From page 10 of The Crown by Nancy Bilyeau.

Karen's:
New fear surged. How could I even think of looking for a strange man in a mask after dark? All alone out here?
From page 27 of Deceit by Brandilyn Collins.

Happy Reading! We are donating 50 cents for each legitimate comment we receive on all our blogs during March to the American Cancer Society.

  1. Looking for a strange man in the dark would be bad enough. Add the mask and it becomes a lot more scary. Good teasers.

  2. Oh... It seems dangerous to have spies around them watching their every more as if they were criminals... Or are they really going to steal something?

    Looking for a masked man after dark? Difficult especially if he is a stranger...

    Great teasers.

    Here's mine.

  3. Intriguing teasers! 'The Crown' sounds good, I'd like to read something about the Cromwell era. The second one is creepy, but interesting. Here is my TT.

  4. Interesting teasers. Loved the second one though, seemed a bit more dramatic and dark.

  6. The Crown is my kind of book. I read Deceit, did not like it as much as Gone to Ground. Happy Reading.
