Teaser Tuesday ~ Twice Promised and Strand of Deception ~ 10/11/16


Teaser

 
My teaser for this week is from:

~"Keeping his eye along the steep ridge above him, Sergeant Bryan Gifford clutched his Sharps carbine next to his hip.  He hunkered among the thickets of scraggly sagebrush, which wouldn't allow much protection from the renegade band of Sioux who bore down on his unit in a surprise attack.  The sagebrush's pungent smell tickled his nose, and its yellow flowers were bright against the brown earth, but he had no time for enjoyment of the surrounding kinnikinnick, the evening star, or the wintergreen that crept over the warm rocks.  For just a moment, he thought of when he'd played soldiers with his two brothers, but this was no game.  This was the real thing, and if he made it out alive, he'd run, not walk, to the nearest train headed to Cheyenne, into the waiting arms of his true love."~

P.S.  I finished "Twice Promised" late last night.  Since I already had this post ready, I decided just to add my newest read, "Strand of Deception", to it.  It is a two-fer!

"The stack of photographs slipped to the floor, splaying across the wood planks like wildflowers over a grassy meadow.  Her hands trembled as tears flowed down her cheeks.  This wasn't real.  This couldn't be happening."

  6. They both sound great. And beautiful covers, but in different ways.

    Mine this week is from a cozy mystery: https://wp.me/p3Nz8P-Xl
