Teaser Tuesday ~ Uncertain Heart




Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, f hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along, so I thought I would play for un! 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!
"So..." The conversation lagged.  "So you're twenty years old and not married yet?  I can't believe it."
Sarah sent him a stern glance.  "If I hear one old-maid comment out of you, Richard Navis, I'll-"
"No, no, that's not what I find funny."  He regarded her.  "What's funny," he said in softer tones, "is that no man has succeeded in claiming you for his bride." 
I have my big brothers to thank for that."

Here is my teaser from "The Lodestone Book One: The Sea of Storms" by Mark Whiteway (Prologue):

It was early in the afternoon, when Kal first saw the flying rock.

Well, perhaps "flying" was a slight exaggeration; a subtle embellishment that he might have used later when trying to impress his younger brother, or his friends after third-day prayers. It was a least enough to break Kal out of his reverie. Hymarr's reaction was the last thing he had expected.

He has been rehearsing in his mind for days beforehand how he would ask her to accompany him to the Spring Gratitude Service. That morning, as he lay in his bedchamber, before even Ali-Gan, the yellow sun, has risen over the western horizon, he determined that today was going to be the day.
