Teaser Tuesdays (24)


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!


"I am nae a shrew!" Myrna said angrily.

Sorcha and their youngest sister Agnes, giggled as Annabella shrugged but did not take back her harsh words.

~ page 29.  Bond of Passion by Bertrice Small




Released:  October 2011

Called the handsomest man in the borders, Angus Ferguson, Earl of Duin, lives a quiet life, avoiding the constant political intrigues of his neighbors in order to keep his small clan safe. Now, in exchange for a piece of land he has long coveted, he has taken a wife: Annabella Baird, the plain-faced daughter of the laird of Rath.

Reluctant at first to bed the unassuming Annabella, Angus finally accepts his duty as a husband—only to discover that beneath his bride's modest demeanor is a wildcat with a spark waiting to be ignited. When, however, they accept an invitation to the court of Scotland's Queen Mary, they find themselves caught up in royal intrigue.

Mary's unfortunate marriage to her cousin Lord Darnley has proven a disaster. Worse, it has driven her into the arms of another man, James Hepburn, the dashing, powerful Earl of Bothwell. When Darnley is murdered in spectacular fashion, and his body barely cold before Mary and Bothwell wed, the queen's adversaries retaliate with a war that divides Scotland and tries the long friendship between the Earl of Duin and James Hepburn—even as it tests the bond of passion between Angus and Annabella in ways they have never expected

  1. Nice teaser! I think she might be protesting too much. My teasers this week are from Drink Slay Love by Sarah Beth Durst and Lowcountry Punch by Boo Walker. Happy reading!
