Teaser Tuesday: Royal Blood by Rona Sharon

TEASER TUESDAYS : Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading ~ I always look forward to reading everyone's teasers!

My 2 “Teaser” Sentences for today:

The fair stranger. As evidenced by his pleased expression, he had been watching her, waiting for her to notice him again. Leaning against the wall beside a bearded fellow, he pinioned her with a stare so direct her belly fluttered.

~ p. 74, “Royal Blood" by Rona Sharon




From Amazon:
In the Tudor Court of 1518, your friends and enemies can be one and the same...During the annual celebration of the Order of the Garter, Sir Michael Devereaux arrives in King Henry VIII's court on a mission for his benefactor. The celebration's endless feats and sumptuous women delight the charismatic newcomer, who becomes captivated by the enigmatic Princess Renee of France. But evil, it seems, has followed Michael to the court. Shortly after his arrival, an unknown killer claims several victims, including the Queen's lady-in-waiting, and the powerful Cardinal Wolsey asks Michael to help with the investigation. As he searches for the killer, Michael is haunted by disturbing images of the victims - flashes of violence that lead him to doubt his own sanity. Michael soon realizes that the key to solving the crime is connected to both the Pope's Imperial vault in Rome and a mystery from Michael's own past - revealing a secret that is so damning, it could forever alter the future of mankind.

You picked a good teaser from the book. I'm almost done with the book and hope to review it yet this week. I will confess to being disappointed with one aspect of the book but I'm holding judgement to the very end. Sure is a big book.
