Teaser Tuesday (03.16.10)

March 15, 2010

teasertuesdays31Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly event hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. It’s easy enough to play along, just follow the Teaser Tuesdays link for rules.

Today’s teaser comes from Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict by Laurie Viera Rigler.

I try not to stare at him in his cream-colored knee breeches and dark blue jacket. I never thought I’d have a crush on a man wearing knee-length white stockings. Actually, before waking up in this place I never imagined seeing a man in any kind of stockings whatsoever. I’m glad he’s looking at Mary now and not me, because I’m sure I look like a slack-jawed idiot. (p. 169)

Seriously, I am enjoying this book so much!

What are you teasing us with today?
