Teaser Tuesday: The Trials of the Honorable F. Darcy by Sara Angelini


TEASER TUESDAYS : hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading ~


Teaser :

"Very funny," Lou growled at Darcy.

Darcy leaned across the table toward Lou. "You are her best friend. Don't you want her to be happy?"

"I suppose you think she'll be happy with you?"

~ page 220 “The Trials of the Honorable F. Darcy" by Sara Angelini **This teaser was taken from the ARC version, so the final version may be slightly different.

About the Book (from Amazon):


A sexy, bold adaptation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice that re-paints favorite characters in twenty-first century colors

Judge Fitzwilliam Darcy, a legal expert on both sides of the Atlantic, is ready to hang up his black robe and return to the life of a country gentleman—until he meets Elizabeth Bennet, a fresh-faced attorney with a hectic schedule and no time for the sexy but haughty judge.

Tempers and sparks fly in Judge Darcy's courtroom— and outside, in a series of chance encounters that give each of them pause—as the two match wits and try to fight their overwhelming attraction. When they meet up in England at an international law conference, they embark on a hot, heavy affair. Back in the States, though, ethical considerations intrude, and each is subjected to a torturous period of soul-searching before they can find their way back to each other...
I always look forward to reading everyone's teasers! ~ Wendi
