Teaser Tuesdays (10)

Happy Tuesday everyone! This week's teasers come from Rosalind Miles' I, Elizabeth, the epic story of Queen Elizabeth I as told from her own perspective.

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 Teasers:

"Yes, yes, I knew how she had suffered in that marriage from the King's tyranny and cruelty, his turning against her even to take her life. And then his vile gross bulk, that festering hulk of evil-smelling lard, his rotting leg--as welcome as a slug's his bed embraces must have been!..." (147)

--I, Elizabeth by Rosalind Miles
