Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! 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!
My teaser is from the book “The Fallen Queen” by Jane Kindred.
“Your Supernal Majesty,” Belphagor pleaded under his breath. “I beg you not to do this to him.” “You should worry more about what he’s going to do to you, my pet.” She stepped back to whisper in Kae’s ear before she spoke aloud. “Come, my prince.” She lifted her train to sit at the head of the bed. “Show this demon how devoted you are to me and do what I’ve bidden you.” Her eyes were merry.

I picked up this book, not because the cover enticed me, or because someone recommended it to me, but because somehow I stumbled across a post by the author, Jane Kindred, on Twitter, which lead to me looking her up and following her. Her personality captured my attention, and I decided to read her books solely because I liked her as a person, so I figured I would probably like her writing as well. I was right.
