Teaser Tuesday ~ Veil of Pearls ~ 11/25/16


Teaser

 
My teaser for this week is from:

13324521
 
 
~"If Althea got caught, Sir Walter would whip her to death.  It was why her heart hammered in her chest and her breath seized in her throat.  It was why she stood at the top of the stairway unable to move.  Darkness coated the main corridors of the house like molasses, so thick it nearly forced her backward down the long hall to her chamber.  Where she belonged.  Where she was usually locked behind a bolted door.  But not tonight.

Not ever again."~

  1. Wow - that's an amazing teaser! Is this one a straight historical adventure, or has it any paranormal overtones? This is my TT this week - https://sjhigbee.wordpress.com/2016/10/25/teaser-tuesday-25th-october-2016/

    1. I don't think there are any paranormal overtones. Just straight historical.

  3. The cover is so pretty, but I'm not sure about the intro. I'd need to read a little more before deciding. Hope you enjoy it!

  8. Lots of questions raised in the opening: What's her relationship to Sir Walter? Why is she locked away? And what is she contemplating doing? I'd keep reading to find out!

  11. Hi Colletta,

    First of all, Thank You so much for stopping by Fiction Books this week. I enjoy 'meeting' new people, so your visits and comments will always be welcome and appreciated :)

    Despite my own post this week, I assure you that I have very eclectic reading tastes and do enjoy historical fiction from time to time. No excuse for me cheating a little and checking out the full premise for 'Veil Of Pearls' I know, but the cover art and teaser lines were just too intriguing for me not to want to know more.

    I'm not certain that I could read the seafaring books which seem to be the authors stock in trade, but as a stand alone story 'Veil Of Pearls' is definitely heading for my list, so thanks for sharing :)

    Yvonne.
