Teaser Tuesday: To Tempt A Rake by Cara Elliott


TEASER TUESDAYS :
hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading ~



Teaser :
To Tempt A Rake (Circle of Sin)

"Please." A flicker of moonlight hung for an instant on her lashes, lighting the look in her eyes.

Marco forced himself to look away. "A diavolo- women!" he said through gritted teeth. "If you dare shed a tear I shall throw you into the lake."

"I'm a very good swimmer," she countered.

~ page 244 “To Tempt A Rake" (Circle of Sin, Book 3) by Cara Elliott

** Please note that this Teaser was taken from an Advanced Reader Copy and the final book may be slightly different.

About the Book (from Amazon):
Kate Woodbridge has spent most of her life sailing to exotic ports around the globe, acquiring an expertise in botany, along with a few less ladylike skills. So when a deathbed promise to her parents brings her to London to seek reconciliation with her grandfather, the imperious Duke of Cluyne, she feels like a fish out of water. Her outspoken views and fiery temper tend to set off sparks in Society-especially with the rakish Conte of Como.

A devil-may-care rogue, Marco finds the alluring and mysterious Kate a tempting target for his flirtations. But when murder strikes at the duke's country house party he begins to suspect that she's hiding a dark secret. He has his own clandestine reasons for offering to help her prove her innocence . . . And so begins a journey of dangerous deception that leads from England to the glittering ballrooms of Vienna, where Marco and Kate must duel with a deadly villain . . . and their own explosive attraction.
I always look forward to reading everyone's teasers! ~ Wendi
