Teaser Tuesday 36: Joining

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.
* Share a few “teaser” sentences from somewhere in the book.
* 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 and author so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!

This is from an older historical romance by Johanna Lindsey, which I read in May. There are fireworks aplenty between these two strong-headed people, making for a great romance.

She cut in angrily as she marched past him, "There is no way to make it palatable, so do not bother to try, Lord Wulf. A prisoner is a prisoner, no matter what small freedom she is allowed."

(pg 216)

About the book:
Genre: Historical Romance

Johanna Lindsey is in top form with Joining, a medieval romance. It's the 13th century, and young Wulfric and little Milisant are not exactly soul mates—as kids, they've gotten into quite a scrape. Years later, they must marry each other and make the best of things, despite their low opinion of each other. Lindsey knows how to set off the sparks and make the fireworks soar—and Joining is one of her best novels in years. (Note from me: it really is!)

Sounds like a very spirited lady. I've never read anything by Johanna Lindsey, but she used to be a favorite of my mom's. Excellent teaser!
Here's mine.

I'm hit and miss with Johanna Lindsey, but the set-up for this actually sounds entertaining. I'll have to give it a try. Nice teaser!

If you'd like, you can check out mine here.

I love Johanna Lindsey! I've learned so much about how to say more than what the words actually say from reading her stuff.

I don't think I've read Joining yet. I'll have to go get a copy.

Nice teaser! Hope you're liking the book. My teaser is at The Crowded Leaf.

Heather said...

jlshall: Quite spirited! I've been reading historical romances by Johanna Lindsey a couple of decades now. She also has a couple great futuristic romances.

Laurel-Rain: Hey, how'd you know there was a bit of a mystery involved? *g*

Celia: I admit I have liked some of her books more than other. This one was more 'hit' than 'miss' with me!

Heather said...

Alice: She does have a way with words, doesn't she? I hope you can track down a copy of this one and like it!

EJ: Thank you, it was an enjoyable read!

Alayne: Yes, I did like the book (past tense, read it a couple weeks ago). Thanks for visiting!

Jan von Harz said...

Sound exciting. I do love medieval settings. I am reading one now.

Heather said...

Jan: I have always enjoyed medievel settings as well! Thanks for visiting!

Audrey said...

I haven't read on of her books in a couple of years. Might have to go pick one up :)
Thanks so much for visiting my TT!

It's been years since I read a historical. My very favorite (read and re-read a million times) historical is a Johanna Lindsay that I first got in junior high, I think. Your teaser almost makes me wanna come out of my historial hiatus.

I might go dig out that old favorite first, though. ;-)
