Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by
OK, so my teaser is REALLY late in the day this week. My children are on their first week of the summer holiday from school and we finally have some sun here in the UK. We’ve spent a beautiful day in the park today and then came home to splash in the paddling pool. So here I am now, the kids are worn out and in bed, and it’s time for my teaser!
This week my teaser is from page 53 of Madly & Wolfhardt by M. Leighton
“When Jackson’s eyes darkened I thought he was angry because I continued to joke. But, as I looked into the intense black of is dilated pupils, I thought I saw a quick flash of something else. For a moment all the air left the hallway, and I was lost.”
Doesn’t that just sound intriguing?!
And if you want to know more about Madly & Wolfhardt here’s the synopsis, taken from Goodreads …
Madly is your average nearly-eighteen year old girl—for a princess, that is.
Madly James is thoroughly enjoying her internship in the small town of Slumber when the unthinkable happens—there’s a prison break in Atlas, the magically-protected home of Madly’s race. A traitor has set free eight Lore, the spirits of what humans know as fairy tales, and they are making their way to Slumber to awaken their descendants.
The first spirit to arrive is that of Ulrich Wolfhardt, a man that was once obsessed with wolves and a young maiden he would follow through the woods. After a bite from a wolf, Wolfhardt’s obsession with the girl became an unnatural hunger and the young maiden’s grandmother cursed him with a fate worse than death. And now he’s back…with a vengeance and a bite that can infect others as well.
Madly must learn the identity of Wolfhardt’s descendant and stop him before he kills again and spreads his curse across the earth. But the only person strong enough to help Madly is Jackson, the Sentinel who vowed to protect her and the one person capable of breaking her heart. Can Madly resist forbidden love long enough to save the world from Wolfhardt? Or will she have to sacrifice her heart and her destiny to save the ones she loves?
