Teaser Tuesdays!

Welome back to Teaser Tuesdays, hosted by the lovely Miz B at ShouldBeReading. Now, you know the rules: open your book to a random page and choose 2 teaser sentences that will get us hooked on the story (without spoiling it).

I just posted my review of Mr. Darcy, Vampyre, so I thought I would use a quote from that before I get involved in a new book. You remember how much Lady Catherine liked Elizabeth in Pride and Prejudice? Well, she likes her even less in this book:

"The sight of you sickens me, so yes, I will go, but you have not seen the last of me," Lady Catherine said. "You will threaten us all if you pursue this course."


Come on, Catherine! Tell us how you really feel!

What's teasing YOU this week?

Marg said...

I haven't been too interested in these spin-off books, but your teaser makes me at least contemplate reading this one.

Two teasers from me this week!

Amy said...

Great teaser. I'm interested to see what you think in the end.

fleurfisher said...

Hmmm. I'm not at all sure about Jane Austen spin-offs, but that certainly is dramatic.

Nise' said...

Wonderful teaser. I've got to get to this one.

Great teaser - saw at least three different people reading this at the airport last month

Umm - I love a little venom with my coffee in the morning.

My teaser is up too, with "rippling abs" ;)

I recognize Lady Catherine. I'm just not fond of the vampire books. Sorry.

She sounds tough! I wouldn't want to mess with her! :-/

I'm with Marg on this one...I've not gotten into any of the spin-off books yet, although I have two sitting merrily on my shelf. This sounds too good to pass up!
