I'm trying to pick books that will be quick reads and that I can finish before I leave on vacation this weekend. Having said that, this week's teaser comes from Jude Deveraux's The Duchess, one of the many books in the Montgomery series and NOT to be confused with the Keira Knightley film of the same name.
"She sat there for a long while, breathing the sweet, cool Scottish air and looking at the hills. After a while she turned and saw that Trevelyan was staring at her. He seemed able to read her thoughts, but she had no idea what he was thinking" (65).
This book started off really slow...thankfully it's started to pick up (100 pages in). Now I have until Friday night to finish it, along with grading a massive stack of essays and poem responses. Joy to my burning eyes ;)
