Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Miz of Should Be Reading where you share two (2) teaser sentences from your current read to try to entice others to want to seek it out. All you have to do is to grab your current read and open to a random page. Then pick and share two teaser sentences from the page without including spoilers. And lastly, include the title and the author of the book to encourage participants to add the book to their TBR lists.
Another Tuesday…I just finished reading Ms. S.G. Rogers‘ debut in the Historical Romance field (YA Historical Romance I should say)…so expect a review soon-like. In the meantime I wanted to give y’all a Teaser.
This from The Ice Captain’s Daughter, page…er…about page 27 or so…
“We are not in agreement, sir. I refuse to enter into an engagement with a man in love with someone else!” Jillian exclaimed.
“Have you lost your mind?” Aunt Letty exclaimed. “Love has nothing to do with marriage, on the whole.”
“I… I have no objection, Miss Roring,” Logan said.
Jillian gave him a searching look. “Forgive me, sir. Your offer is honorable, but motivated by obligation. I aspire to enter into more than an unobjectionable union.”
“If these events between you and Mr. Logan become known, Jillian, this may be the only offer of marriage you will ever receive,” Sir William said.
“So be it,” Jillian said. “I will not marry unless the man has a true and abiding affection for me and I for him in return. My mind is made up on the matter and I won’t discuss it further.”
Uh oh! What’s this? Anyway, if you’d like to read more of this romantic Victorian era novella, here’s the Synopsis:
Can the daughter of an Ice Captain find love and happiness in Victorian-era England?
The Daughter of a wealthy ice merchant, Miss Jillian Roring intends to marry for love. En route to her first Season in London, however, a failed kidnapping sends her into the arms of the most jaded bachelor in England. When Logan and Jillian unwittingly violate the rigid rules of propriety in Victorian-era England, he is obliged to make her an offer of marriage. Because she aspires to be more than an obligation, Jillian refuses the match. Logan follows her to London to woo her properly, but his scheming ex-fiancée has other plans.
Can Logan convince Jillian that his love for her is real or will the cruel gossip and sharp tongues of London society tear their budding relationship apart?
And the book is available at Amazon. Do check it out. I think you’ll like it!
