Teaser Tuesdays (9)

Happy Tuesday everyone! This week's teasers come from Jeanne Kalogridis's The Borgia Bride, the intriguing story of Sancha of Aragon and her marriage into the notorious Borgias of Rome.

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:

"Behind the pale, upward-curving lips, behind the gentleness emanating from this Lucrezia's gaze, I saw at once the jealousy hidden there--and the powerful intelligence. And at once I believed every story I had heard of Pope Alexander's deviousness and cunning, for here it was, reflected in his daughter." (162)

--The Borgia Bride by Jeanne Kalogridis

Now that's definitely a great teaser! I'm intrigued, no doubt! I hope the book is as good as it seems based on that. ;)

My teaser can be found here! It's from a book I just finished today and absolutely loved!

Marcie: I'm starting to agree with you... anything about the Tudors and their Italian counterparts, the Borgias, gets me hooked! I can deny it no longer!
