Today's teaser is from The Constant Princess by Philippa Gregory. I've just started it so expect another teaser next week. The book is about Catherine of Aragon, the first wife of Henry VIII. At the beginning of the book (or maybe the whole book, I don't know) she is known as Catalina.
From page 93
Catalina looked around from her prayers and smiled in pure triumph. Then, absolutely silently, she crept into bed beside him, and carefully arranging herself so that not even the hem of her nightgown could touch him, composed herself for sleep.
