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!
This one comes from Daughter of Sherwood, an historical romance, (with just a hint of magic!) by Laura Strickland. In this scene, Wren, Robin Hood’s daughter, and her protector/companion Sparrow, have been having a rough day…this is from about 20% of the way through the ebook. Again, more than two sentences, here. *ducks*
“I am all right. But your arm–“
He sat up and she came with him as if they were attached to one another, as perhaps they were. She turned her head and they looked into one another’s eyes. He saw–
Wild places, rushing water, the rising and setting of the sun. He saw every peril of the future and all the beauty he could ever hope to know.
Would you like to see what happens next? Daughter of Sherwood is available at Amazon.
Here’s the synopsis:
Raised in the kitchens of Nottingham Castle, Wren has no idea she is the daughter of the legendary Robin Hood until she is summoned to Sherwood Forest. Since Robin’s death many years before, the resistance against Norman tyranny has been upheld by a magical triad, but now one of the guardians has died. With two young men, Sparrow and Martin, Wren must form a new triad with a bond strong enough to defend Sherwood’s magic. To one of them, she will also give her heart.
From the moment Wren bursts into his life, Sparrow loves her. But he knows she may choose his lifelong rival, Martin, as her mate. Martin wants Wren also, but Sparrow fears Martin is driven not by love but by ambition. When Martin is captured and held at Nottingham Castle, will the conflict between love and duty destroy the triad?
I’m enjoying this one even now, so expect a review in the not-too-distant future. Until then, I urge you to check it out. 🙂
