Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

In between my zombie-fest, I’m indulging myself in Eloisa James’ fourth book in her Happy Ever After series, The Ugly Duchess. I am sharing a teaser which amused me. See, when you are inside a Regency romance novel, this is how you tell someone he is drunk/sloshed/tipsy:
I’ve never seen you three sheets to the wind. Are you about to cast up your accounts, or will you just sway gently all night? You look like a hollyhock that someone forgot to stake!
I wish I can use that soon. I wonder how drunk people will take it. Hahaha.
