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 Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB 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, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

The White Boar, Marian Palmer

"I've sent messengers to Hastings; we'll soon hear from him how matters are going. All being well, we should be able to bring the boy into London by Sunday next."

"Good: if the people only see him then, it will distract any suspicion at the postponement of the coronation."


  1. I am looking forward to your review on this one, I love anything about Richard III.

  2. Ah, I have this one my watch list, so I agree with Muse in the Fog above and eagerly anticipate your review.
