Tuesday Teaser - A Day Late!

This Tuesday Teaser is a day late! So sorry. I guess I should call it Wednesday Woolgathering or something! I got so caught up in the back to school hoopla, I forgot to post this until late on Tuesday night when I was too tired to crawl out of bed and do it. (I know, that’s why I’m supposed to schedule these ahead!)  :oops:

Mea culpa, I’ll do better next week, in the mean time, I’ll pick TWO winners for this one, because it might be an obscure choice. Correct emails number 5 and 10 will be winners today, Good Luck!

Last Week’s Winner :  Karen!

love of books

Okay! Try to guess the title of the Z.A. Maxfield book this teaser comes from to get an ebook copy of the book in question or any other book from my backlist. Be sure to leave a valid email address so I know where to send your ebook. The 9th person to email me with the correct title  WINS an ebook from my backlist!

Email me at zamaxfield @ zamaxfield (dot) com and put Tuesday Teasers in the subject line!

**** was adjusting to all of this when iron clanked against stone right in front of him.

He took an apprehensive step back and that’s when the circle of light from *******’* lantern fell onto the face of a young boy.

**** jumped.

“It’s all right. He can’t hurt you,” *******’* tone was reassuring. “The iron makes him weak. He has less strength than a child half his age.”

**** was speechless. He’d never encountered anything as appalling as this. He wondered how long ******** had been trafficking in underage boys.

**** ground his teeth together and the boy look up at him as though he’d heard. “What is your name,” **** asked stupidly.

“He doesn’t speak, ********, not with the iron around his throat.” The man frowned at him. “I thought you had some idea of what you were getting into here?”

“I’ll set up the transfer; prepare him to be moved,” **** told the man, wondering how he’d bluff his way through this. He had no idea who he needed to pay and he didn’t know how much. ”Let’s go through the particulars again though, I find that I drank rather too much last night and I’m just a little…”

“Fine,” snapped the man as he led the way back to the stairs. “I have the computers we’ll need in the storeroom.”
