Every Tuesday, Diane at Bibliophile by the sea posts the opening paragraph (maybe two) of a book she decided to read based on the opening paragraph (s). Feel free to grab the banner and play along. I like this meme and decided to play along with her this week.

"Caught between two willful queens, I am, and should have taken more care to tread lightly--like crossing a stream over slippery stones when the current is strong and cold. Now that I have stumbled deep, who can say whether my two queens will forgive me or condemn me for what I did at each one's bidding. No servant, I am free to do as I please. Margaret and Gruadh disagree."
Wow! I know I want to keep reading to see what the narrator did that needs forgiveness or will bring condemnation. What do you think? Keep reading or say "no way" and chuck the book aside?
The author, Susan Frasier King, will be guest posting here shortly and the publisher is allowing me to hold a giveaway. Don't miss Susan's post!
