Teaser Tuesday: The Firebird

Today I'm sharing a teaser from The Firebird, the newest release from one of my favorite authors, Susanna Kearsley. My local library won a contest and Susanna is coming tomorrow night for a wine and cheese reception. I can't wait to meet her! I'm about halfway through this novel and loving it because it features characters from two of her previous novels, including my absolute fave: The Winter Sea. This teaser comes from page 118:

     "Ye take your children where ye must, but Anna comes with me."
     When the captain, at his shoulder, shifted slightly on his feet as though to protest, Colonel Graeme said, "She is my nephew's daughter, and her blood is bound to mine, and for the love I bore her father and the love he bore her mother I'll be damned if I will ever let the lassie come to harm. She comes with me."

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 teaser sentences from somewhere on that page

BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! Share the title & author, too, so that others can add the book to their TBR Lists!

  3. I just read another teaser for this book, and now it's going on my TBR list. It sounds simply wonderful! Cheers!

  4. Have a wonderful time meeting Susanna! She's lovely with her fans. I had the pleasure of meeting her in NY at RWA a few years ago and had her sign my beloved copy of Mariana.

  5. Jealous that you'll get to meet her! I'd love to know how she knows how to write of the Scots so well! I'm about to page 200 of this one.

  6. I just finished reading this! It was really good and my review is up.

  7. I am so jealous that you got to meet SK!
