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!
I wasn't sure which book to do a teaser from this week. I finished another Terry Pratchett book today, but I only just did a teaser from another of his books last week, so I decided against it. One of the other options is a book that I have just started, but then I looked on my nightstand for the book that I have been reading at night, and decided, that yes, something romantic might be in order. This week's teaser therefore comes from Lessons in French by much loved romance author Laura Kinsale. The teaser comes from page 181:
Hubert proved himself a splendid gentleman, worthy of his exalted lineage and genteel upbringing, in his transit from the kitchen to the front door. Following Callie and a trail of carrots, he moved one ponderous step at a time, his big head swaying gently under the replaced blindfold.
I probably should mention that Hubert is a prize bull. I possibly could have actually found a romantic passage, but this is the one that I opened the page on!
