Teaser Tuesday ~ Queen of the Waves ~ 9/25/12

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!

Here's my teaser for this week:

Queen of the Waves

~Her gaze traveled up the magnificent stairs, and her breath caught in her throat as she took in the splendor of it all.  Just as the purser had said, the glass-domed ceiling had a heavenly appearance.  The polished oak wall paneling glistened, a happy candidate for the streams of sunlight pouring in from above.  Truly, the whole thing felt like some sort of heavenly gift, a pinch from a falling star, equal in brightness and beauty.~

Happy Teaser Tuesday!


  1. The description is beautiful. Would like to read it.

  2. Wow, I can almost see the stairs and glass-domed ceiling. I saw this book, but I still cry when I hear the song from the Titanic movie and do not think I could get emotionally attached to another character who dies..LOL So let me know if the main character lives, and how many boxes of tissues you needed..because i do love historical fiction.

  3. Now I can see what she sees...love the descriptions.

    Thanks for sharing, and here's MY TUESDAY MEMES POST

  4. Beautiful description of the setting. I love the book's cover and title too. I want to read this one!
    My teaser is from A STOP IN THE PARK.

  5. Great description...but is the ship the Titanic? I hope not. Thanks for visiting my teaser and happy reading!

  6. Fantastic teaser...love the book's cover as well.

    Here is my teaser from MURDER TAKES TIME by Giacomo Giammatteo. It was GOOD...just finished it yesterday.


  7. A real contract to what was to come. Thanks for visiting.

  8. As soon as I saw "purser", I wondered if this was a Titanic novel. Somehow I don't think she's in for a very relaxing trip across the Atlantic!

  9. Love the teaser! I'll definitely have to check this book out! Thanks for stopping by earlier!

  10. Wow!! Sounds beautiful, must be a well written book!

    Thanx for visiting my TT
