Today's Read: The Darcys & the Bingleys by Marsha Altman

It's 1803 and I am soon to marry the love of my life—not that I'd let anyone see how much I cared. I have been spending a lot of time at my best friend's house, Netherfield, to be near my beloved Elizabeth, but I'm ready to return to Pemberley and regain my privacy. And now Bingley has come to me for advice, and I'm going to be forced to tell him something about the marriage bed. I suppose I must help him.

MizB at Should Be Reading hosts Teaser Tuesdays. Here's how it works: Grab your current read; let the book fall open to a random page; and share 2 “teaser” sentences from that page. For more teasers, click on through to MizB's blog.

Bingley was right. Best he could recall, there was no gossip when he was back in the changing room the next day and no knowing winks from his captain. Surely if there was some assault on the Darcy honour, he would remember it distinctly. At the moment, all he remembered was a pounding headache. (54)

Great teaser. I'll be interested to hear how you like this book once you've finished it.

I am sure I started this one, it sounds familiar. Maybe in the library or book store and put it back as I can't find it on my stacks. Look forward to your thought.

Sounds like a fun take on Pride and Prejudice. Should be fun looking at the story from the male perspective.

Allison 10/20/09, 8:50 AM  

Sometimes a headache is all we need to effectively take away all concentration!

I wonder what Bingley is thinking about. This looks like a fun P&P book.
Great teaser! Here's mine.

Will the Jane Austen sequels never end! And honestly, I really want to read this one! I'd love to know how much money has been made on Pride & Prejudice follow-ups alone...

I'm reading P&P to my 12 year old daughter right now, this looks like a fun continuing read for me, can't tell how appropriate it would be for her though.

Fresh Mommy 10/20/09, 1:23 PM  

Oh what a cool post idea... and great teaser because now I want to read it!! Haha, awesome. :)

Lenore 10/20/09, 1:29 PM  

I don't know that I'd want to read a P&P sequel. It's crazy how much P&P stuff is out there!

Dawn @ sheIsTooFondOfBooks 10/20/09, 1:39 PM  

"I'm going to be forced to tell him something about the marriage bed" ... well, wouldn't you like to be a fly on the wall for that conversation (I'm sure it was all inferences and hemming and hawing!)

Jenny Girl 10/20/09, 2:45 PM  

I liked this book. Easy light reading. funny too.
Here's my teaser

I've never been a big Jane Austen fan, but it's amazing how many people get really caught up in her novels. Good teaser!

I've got a football teaser today! And a giveaway!

I haven't heard of this book, but it sounds fun!

Here's my Teaser Tuesday.

Michelle 10/20/09, 8:40 PM  

I have this in my TBR pile to read for the Everything Austen Challenge. I think it sounds kinda fun. I'm interested to hear your take on it.

raidergirl3 10/20/09, 9:10 PM  

I'm not a huge P&P fan, but I do like the story and characters. This might be an interesting follow up.

Alice Teh 10/20/09, 9:21 PM  

Good teaser! I have this in my TBR!

Aarti 10/21/09, 12:08 AM  

It looks as though Austen is hugely popular again these days. She and the Tudors are making England quite fashionable in the literary world :-)

Interesting teaser! Looking forward to your review of this one.
