Teaser Tuesdays (6)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at 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!

Since I didn't participate last week, I am sharing two teasers.

My teasers this week:

"On a throne-like chair in the center of the litter, draped in purple silk fringed with gold, perched none other than the Dowager Duchess of Dovedale, the woman who had launched a thousand ships-as their crews rowed for their lives in the opposite direction. She inspired horses to rear, jaded roues to blanch beneath their rouge, and young fops to jump out of ballroom windows." p. 22

"Charlotte had never seen outrage quite so profound, and all because she had made a comment about falling off her horse, which didn't seem like it ought to be the sort of thing to make a man start breathing gusts of flame. As she watched Robert's face move from tan to crimson, it belatedly occurred to Charlotte that tumble might, just might, have more than one meaning." p. 186

The Temptation of the Night Jasmine by Lauren Willig

Book five in the Pink Carnation series features Charlotte Lansdowne who becomes involved with a mission for The Pink Carnation and Robert, Duke of Dovedale who has just returned from military service in India, seeking to avenge a murder. In the midst of the danger and espionage they must also deal with their feelings for each other.
