Teaser Tuesday ~ Close to His Heart

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along, so I thought I would play for fun! 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!

Grace was about to run lightly to the top of the staircase, when she noticed something on the floor. It lay in a puddle of light cast by the night candle on the table beside her door. It was white. A leg in a while stocking lay as if carelessly discarded. A man's leg. She froze with one foot raised, grabbing the door frame to keep from toppling onto him. He heart gave a great thump. A person, a man in front of her door! Why? Who was he?
