Teaser Tuesday, November 6, 2012

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following: 

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • 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!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers.
My Teaser is from An Infamous Marriage by Susanna Frazer.

"Why, you've never mentioned a wife" Devenish blurted then had to grace to look abashed." 

"It was not more than the truth, Jack rarely spoke of Elizabeth, nor thought of her more than he had to."

Here is the Goodreads summary:

An Infamous MarriageNorthumberland, 1815

At long last, Britain is at peace, and General Jack Armstrong is coming home to the wife he barely knows. Wed for mutual convenience, their union unconsummated, the couple has exchanged only cold, dutiful letters. With no more wars to fight, Jack is ready to attempt a peace treaty of his own.

Elizabeth Armstrong is on the warpath. She never expected fidelity from the husband she knew for only a week, but his scandalous exploits have made her the object of pity for years. Now that he's back, she has no intention of sharing her bed with him—or providing him with an heir—unless he can earn her forgiveness. No matter what feelings he ignites within her…

Jack is not expecting a spirited, confident woman in place of the meek girl he left behind. As his desire intensifies, he wants much more than a marriage in name only. But winning his wife's love may be the greatest battle he's faced yet.

Wow, I can literally feel the conflicts between them...and I'm very curious as to what they each will do.

That is sad that he never thought of his wife more than he needed too :(

This sounds really entertaining. I'll be adding this one to my wishlist. My teasers are from Sapphire Blue by Kerstin Gier and A Royal Pain by Megan Mulry. Happy reading!

Those arranged marriages often seem to work out -- at least in fiction! I love your teaser, and thanks for posting the synopsis too.
My Teaser is from SLIGHTLY CRACKED.
