Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of ‘Should Be Reading’.
Anyone can take part, by just doing the following:
- Grab your current read.
- Open to a random page.
- Share a couple of “teaser” sentences, from somewhere on that page.
- Be careful not to share “spoiler” sentences.
- Remember to share the title and author too.
- Head on over to ‘should be reading’ and leave a link to your post, so that others can share it and you can share other people’s.
It would be great if you then decided to leave a comment for MizB, as we all like to receive them and are interested in sharing your thoughts.
‘THE ENGLISHMAN AND THE BUTTERFLY’ by RYAN ASMUSSEN
My teaser lines are taken from page 131 of 255 on my PDF file.
So as not to show any spoilers I have not included a synopsis, however, if you want to find out more about the story, just click on the book image.
If you don’t really want to read any major spoilers, then you can tease yourself a little more, by reading the first few lines of the story … here.
Fell reclines on an ancient oak table. And she is above him, hovering, a butterfly that has come through the open window with the frigid winter winds.
The tiny dragon, aroused, whips its head round to glower at her, scales quivering with icy fire. A shimmer runs up and down the portions of his body where the prominent muscles curl. She strokes him, soothes him down to quietude.
I have only just started this book, so have no idea what is going on in the scene with my teaser lines. However, from reading just this one page in order to select my teaser lines, I can probably say that you may not all be right in what you might think is happening here ….
As this was an author invitation to read and review, a PDF and Kindle download of ‘The Englishman and the Butterfly’, was sent to me free of charge, by its author Ryan Asmussen.
This will in no way influence any comments I may express about the book, in any blog articles I may post. Any thoughts or comments will be my own personal opinion and I am in no way being monetarily compensated for this, or any other article.
