Teaser Tuesday: A Lot Like a Lady


A Lot Like a Lady
Want to escape to 1800s England? Then you'll enjoy A LOT LIKE A LADY by Kay Springsteen and Kim Bowman.

Teaser:
"Annabella..." Juliet backed away and found herself up against the bedroom door. "What willy-nilly plan are you hatching in that chicken brain of yours?" 
[at 4% on my Kindle]

Synopsis from Goodreads:
Ladies’ maid, Juliet Baines has gotten herself into a pickle by agreeing to go to London and taking the place of her mistress and best friend, Annabella Price, stepsister to the Duke of Wyndham. After all, what does a servant know about being a lady? But Juliet soon finds that pretending to be a lady isn’t nearly as hard as guarding her heart against the folly of wanting a man who’s completely out of reach. Graeme "Grey" Roland Dominick Markwythe, Sixth Duke of Wyndham, approaches his duties as a nobleman with great dedication and meticulous care. And he’s a man who is not easily fooled...except when he tries to convince himself he's not utterly and madly in love with the beautiful imposter who has turned his life upside down. Will society and his responsibilities to his noble status keep him from opening his heart to the woman he loves?

  18. The book sounds interesting. I guess I misunderstood how you ran your TEASER TUESDAY, because I tried to implement one of my own in order to give a book away free. You can visit the post to see what my TEASER TUESDAY is. Love the artwok on the book.

  20. Hi Sandy!
    Love this read. I have not heard the term "willy-nilly" in many years. Now who would not want to be a lady in old time England with the grand balls and gowns? This books sounds fun for the imagination to flow.
    Thanks for sharing.
