Teaser Tuesday #119: Nobody's Lady (Never Veil #2) by Amy McNulty





Welcome to Teaser Tuesdays.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

1. Grab your current read

2. Open to a random page

3. 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!)

4. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


My current read is Nobody's Lady (Never Veil #2) by Amy McNulty  and my two lines are from location 110 of 267


"I chewed my lip. "But how can you be sure you won't fall in love with her again? What if all you needed was to spend more time with her, to learn to love her?" I sounded like the villagers back when they used to say the same things to me. Only now I felt like I knew what they meant.



Nobody's Lady (Never Veil #2) by Amy McNulty



 







For the first time in a thousand years, the men in Noll’s village possess the freedom to love whom they will. In order to give each man the chance to fully explore his feelings, the lord of the village decrees all marriages null and void until both spouses declare their love for one another and their desire to wed again. What many women think will be a simple matter becomes a source of village-wide tension as most men decide to leave their families and responsibilities behind.

Rejected by the lord and ashamed of her part in the village’s history, Noll withdraws from her family and lives life as an independent woodcarver. This changes when her sister accuses her of hiding her former husband Jurij from her—and when Jurij eventually does ask to move in. Determined not to make the same mistakes, Noll decides to support her male friends through their new emotional experiences, but she’s soon caught up in a darker plot than she ever dared imagine possible from the men she thought she knew so well. And the lord for whom she still has feelings may be hiding the most frightening truth of them all.

  2. Sounds like an interesting concept. My teaser this week comes from the first book in an urban fantasy series I recently discovered - Kindling the Moon by Jenn Bennett. Happy reading!
