TEASER TUESDAYS :
hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading ~
'I don't know that I can wait that long.' Winthrop felt unreasonably excited by the Duchess and her secrets, but the moment was interrupted by the arrival of his wife, daughter and a clutch of bridesmaids all complaining about the cold and in urgent need of a carriage. By the time all the women were accommodated, Winthrop had been separated from the Duchess but not from the image of the tattoo.

About the Book (from Amazon):
Be careful what you wish for. Traveling abroad with her mother at the turn of the twentieth century to seek a titled husband, beautiful, vivacious Cora Cash, whose family mansion in Newport dwarfs the Vanderbilts’, suddenly finds herself Duchess of Wareham, married to Ivo, the most eligible bachelor in England. Nothing is quite as it seems, however: Ivo is withdrawn and secretive, and the English social scene is full of traps and betrayals. Money, Cora soon learns, cannot buy everything, as she must decide what is truly worth the price in her life and her marriage.
