Thursday Book Teaser #4: The Queen's Vow

Thursday Book Teaser is a Carole-version of all the other book teaser memes out there. Every Thursday, I'll share a little tease of a book I'm currently reading. I'll randomly pick a page or I'll give some random number and flip to that page. I'll just share a few sentences to try and tease you. Anyone can join in! Just spoilers! FYI, I still don't have a meme cover for this, so...yeah. haha.

Happy Thursday! Time is nearly here for my friend's wedding! Saturday is the day and I'm getting nervous myself! I still haven't written my maid of honor speech. Yes, I am a procrastinator. hahaha.

Well, this week I'll be sharing a teaser from 'The Queen's Vow' by CW Gortner:

Page Number: 18 (in honor of Anee's wedding day)
Beginning at sentence: 8ish

"'No, No.' I choked back my mirth as best I could. 'I was not. I was only thinking that had the Maid come your way, you'd have joined her without a moment's hesitation.'

'Indeed, I would have.' She leapt to her feet. 'I'd have thrown my books and embroidery out the window and jumped on the first horse available. How wonderful it must be to do as you please, to fight for your country, to live with only the sky as your roof and the earth as your bed.'

'You exaggerate, Beatriz. Crusades involve more hardship than history tells us.'

'Perhaps, but at least we'd be doing something!'

I looked at her hands, clasped as if she were brandishing a weapon. 'You could certainly wield a sword with those big paws of yours,' I teased.

She stuck out her chin. 'You're the princess, not me. You would wield the sword.'

As if day had slipped without warning into night, cold overcame me. I shivered. 'I don't think I could ever lead an army,' I said, in a low voice......."
