Teaser Tuesday: The American Heiress

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 "teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! Share the title & author, too, so that others can add the book to their TBR Lists!


This week my teaser comes from The American Heiress, a decadent novel of the Gilded Age that I recently read and reviewed, and really enjoyed! This is from page 27:


The American Heiress: A NovelPerhaps, he thought, if she really cared for him...but he knew that what he principally represented to her was escape. He would like to paint her, though, angry and direct--the spirit of the New World dressed in the trappings of the Old. He couldn't resist taking her face in his hands and kissing her one last time.

  14. This is swoon worthy of a beloved look on my face. PS I finished Quinn's Lost Duke and Mr Cavendish. Loved the first and despaired by disappointment by the second. Write up is coming but I have to say I loved her Offer from a Gentleman - try that one if you can.
