Teaser Tuesday

*Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just flip through your current read to a random page -- or not -- and share two teaser quotes from somewhere on said page.*
This week my Teaser Tuesday quotes will be taken from my current read, A Touch of Gold by Annie Sullivan.

Teaser #1:

Pheus made it an easy promise to keep. All the gold objects disappeared from the palace. The candelabras were stripped bare. The gold plates were replaces with silver. The golden mirrors were taken away and sold. Even my father's crown was replaced with a silver replica. Only a few ornate carriages were left in case visiting dignitaries arrived and needed to be carted around. Pheus outlawed the wearing of gold in the palace. Silver became the highest currency in Lagonia. He passed it all off ass my father not wanting gold around, but I knew it was all because of me. He was right to be scared of what I could do, of who I could hurt.  - page 131
The Story:
King Midas once had the ability to turn all he touched into gold. But after his gift—or curse—almost killed his daughter, Midas relinquished The Touch forever. Ten years later, Princess Kora still bears the consequences of her father’s wish: her skin shines golden, rumors follow her everywhere she goes, and she harbors secret powers that are getting harder to hide.
Kora spends her days locked in the palace, concealed behind gloves and veils, trying to ignore the stares and gossip of courtiers. It isn’t until a charming young duke arrives that Kora realizes there may be someone out there who doesn’t fear her or her curse. But their courtship is disrupted when a thief steals precious items from the kingdom, leaving the treasury depleted and King Midas vulnerable. Thanks to her unique ability to sense gold, Kora is the only one who can track the thief down. As she sails off on her quest, Kora learns that not everything is what it seems—not thieves, not pirates, and not even curses. She quickly discovers that gold—and the power it brings—is more dangerous than she’d ever believed.
Midas learned his lesson at a price. What will Kora’s journey cost?
From author Annie Sullivan comes A Touch of Gold, the untold story of the daughter King Midas turned to gold, perfect for fans of Cinder and The Wrath and the Dawn.
