Teaser Tuesday: The American Heiress: A Novel by Daisy Goodwin


TEASER TUESDAYS :
hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading ~






The American Heiress: A Novel
So far, this rule had been observed absolutely; no one from the house would go near the beach while the red flag was flying, but this morning as she surfaced from one of her seal-like plunges underwater, Cora saw a figure coming down the path to the beach. Her poor eyesight meant that she could not see the figure clearly, but from the black and white of his clothes it could only be Bugler.


~ page 317 “The American Heiress: A Novel" by Daisy Goodwin

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 Nothing is quite as it seems, however: Ivo is withdrawn and secretive, and the English social scene is full of traps and betrayals.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.

Sounds like she is about to be caught in an indecent state. Given the time period, that means that her ankles might be showing! Gasp! Great teaser. Thanks for sharing. If you get a chance, my teaser is here.
