Teaser Tuesday ~ The Mark of the King ~ 10/10/17

My teaser for this week is from:
 
30259051

Paris, France
September 1719

There it was again.

Suddenly wide awake, Julianne covered her ears.  Straw crunched beneath her, needling her skin through the ticking as she inched away from the dark stone wall and closer to the warm body beside her.  The bedding, like the damp air forever clinging to her skin, reeked of wasted dumped into the creek beside the prison.  On the nights when it was not her turn to sleep by the wall, elbows and knees of bedfellows on either side jabbed her ribs and spine.  But it was the screaming that bothered Julianne the most.
