This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle, This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, This other Eden, demi-paradise, This fortress built by Nature for herself Against infection and the hand of war, This happy breed of men, this little world, This precious stone set in the silver sea, Which serves it in the office of a wall Or as a moat defensive to a house, Against the envy of less happier lands,-- This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England. ~~William Shakespeare, Richard III

Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB over at 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 so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers.
Willoughby's Return, Jane Odiwe

"I am sure there is no other young man so informed or cultivated as Henry," Marianne interjected. She was certain Lady Lawrence was trying to make the point that he was not ready to marry Margaret.

"Not all men make correct decisions at a tender age, Mrs. Brandon," Willoughby added, looking directly into her eyes. "An older, wiser gentleman with more qualification to understand the world might make more informed decisions."

And one more, just because I liked the book:

"Please God, Marianne, forgive me," Willoughby cried when she pulled away in some distress, "I could not help myself."
