Tuesday Teaser is a weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading. Here are the rules: Grab your current read. Open to a random page. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page, and 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 Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
"His hands still dripping with blood, he goes to offer the heart, still steaming, under the eyes of the men of peace assembled in this august tribunal of humanity. What a horrible scene! Tyrants, cast your eyes on this terrible and revolting spectacle. Shudder and see how you and yours will be treated. This body, so delicate and so refined, bathed in perfumes, is horribly dragged in the mud and over the cobblestones."
~From Madame Tussaud by Michelle Moran
And now, for my Tuesday Teaser...inspired by i swim for oceans. If you are writer, take a line from your current WIP or published piece. This is a line from my novel.
With the hills of Hollywood looming against the Pacific sky, Isabella and Oliver Sweetly held one another. The rain departed, and the sun broke free of the dark clouds. Birds sang in the eucalyptus trees. A neighborhood dog happily greeted the new day with a song of his own. And with the last chill of the storm, a breeze swept over the lovers; the moment faded away. Isabella smiled up at her husband, but her smile quickly faded. Oliver was staring with uncertain eyes out at the valley below. “God has spared us,” he said, his voice high and shaky. “But I must keep watch for the flood waters, dear lady. They will come very soon.”
A tear ran down her cheek.
