Hi again to another Teaser Tuesday guys! It’s a wonderful weekly meme that is hosted by The Purple Booker, go check out her site! To play Teaser Tuesday is easy, here’s what you do:
- 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! Everyone loves Teaser Tuesday.
So, here are my two sentences for Teaser Tuesday! And as an addendum, I choose two sentences from throughout the whole book, so there’s a variety. Enjoy!
“Of this he was certain; to be in her presence was to know delight in a more pure expression, to be alive in a more vivid sense than ever he had before. The depth to which his fancy had taken him was attested to by the fact that, despite his disavowals, he had not been able to leave her in Hertfordshire but had carried her home to Pemberly, to wander its halls and grace its rooms, an almost tangible presence at his side.” – Pamela Aiden, Duty and Desire (Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman Book 2)
“For, if Sylvanie believed herself so empowered, the influence of that belief alone was capable of wreaking untold havoc. What should be his course? A short, bitter laugh escaped from his has he considered the coils of intrigue his simple matrimonial search had woven.” – Pamela Aiden, Duty and Desire (Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman Book 2)
This is my second or third time reading through these books and I have to say they are some of my favorite retellings. It is a Pride and Prejudice retelling, but it’s told from the perspective of Mr. Darcy. And I LOVE IT!!! Oh, my gosh, so good! So, if you like retellings and you like Pride and Prejudice, then I highly recommend you read this series!
What do you think of retellings that aren’t about fairy tales? Do you like them or do you not? Comment below and let me know!
