Thursday Book Teaser: The Forever Queen

Happy Thursday everyone!! How is everyone doing? I'm doing alright....the heat is killing me though. Gaaaaaaah. I hate summer so much. I hate the hot and humidness. >.< I like fall and spring. Not too hot, not too cold. Perfect.

Page Number: It's an ebook, so it is on 2%
Place on Page: Paragraph 2

 Ã†thelred's arm, the women sinking into deep curtsies....."
