Sophia scowled. “But that’s precisely the point. Producing a son was my duty, and I won’t be made into a dowdy matron because of it. I need to feel alive and have my heart race for joy. Heaven knows, the Marquess already talks of producing another brat for the nursery.”

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
1. Grab your current read.
2. Open to a random page.
3. Share two “teaser” sentences, from somewhere on that page.
4. Be careful not to share “spoiler” sentences, that give away too much about the book.
5. Remember to share the title and author too.
6. Head on over to ‘should be reading’ and leave a link to your post, so that others can share it.
It would be great if you then decided to leave a comment for MizB, as we all like to receive them and are interested in sharing your thoughts.
