Teaser Tuesday: The Beginning

So since productivity has not been my middle name of late, I thought I'd show you the opening paragraphs of A Bridge to War. After all, opening lines are important. Would these catch your eye if you were browsing in a bookstore?




  1. I like the intrigue this sets up - a world where werewolves are well known and people joke about them. You have me intrigued and I'd probably read on. :0

  2. Ooh, I like it! I love how easily the concept of werewolves fits into 1789 Paris, and as ever I love the atmosphere of the story!

  3. Very intriguing! I would definitely read on :D Still loving your historical fiction stuff! It's so darned good!

  4. Oh, I think I read this in FNW? Hooked me then and hooks me now. Love it! :D

  5. "Rose flinched as the needle poked into her finger and dropped the shirt she was mending."

    Better this way:

    "Rose flinched and dropped the shirt she was mending as the needle poked into her finger."

    It sounds less like the needle dropped the shirt.
