Teaser Tuesday: Lessons in French by Laura Kinsale


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Miz B of Should Be Reading and asks you to :

1. Grab your current read
2. Open to a random page
3 . Share 2 "teaser"sentences also citing the title of the book and the author and in that way people can have great recommendations if they like the "teaser.
4. Please avoid spoilers!

Teaser is from Lessons in French by Laura Kinsale.

"She ought to tell him to stop. But she didn't precisely wish him to stop. She rather wished to fall right back in love with him, like a veritable ninnyhammer, and believe against all fact and reason that he meant what he said."

Don't you just love the word ninnyhammer? Review of this delightful romance will be posted at the end of the week.

Disclosure: A review copy of the book was provided by Sourcebooks, Inc.
Thank you, Danielle.!
