Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Jenn of Book and a Beat. 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 the page
~BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! ( make sure that what you share doesn't give away 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!

I'm just a few pages shy of finishing this book and think my teaser is perfect.

Teaser

My pulse slipped when I remembered the way he'd looked at me at the pub. One minute, Kit was socking my insane ex-husband in the face. The next, Kit was looking at me like....like that.
Like Darcy looked at Lizzie.
Like Edward looked at Bella (after he got over his initial impulse to eat her, of course)
Like every girl dreams of being looked at.
I'd wanted to look away. I did, really. But I couldn't. For a minute, I couldn't resist getting lost in Kit's eyes.

Synopsis 
SUBJECT: Engagement Contract (Marked Confidential) 
From The Desk of His Royal Highness Prince Christopher 

Emily—Thank you for joining me for dinner tonight. And for agreeing to my proposal, as ludicrous as it is. Desperate times call for fake engagements. At least in my family. 

I am attaching the contract we discussed. Our lawyers asked that I highlight the following clauses: 

• The engagement shall last ninety days 
• Both parties are to appear genuinely in love at all royal appearances 
• Beyond required public displays of affection, there shall be no contact of any kind between the parties 

The first half of your payment will be deposited into your account upon the signing of this contract. Be sure to note your ring size. We would like to make prompt delivery of the family emerald. The Queen and I thank you in advance for your discretion. 

Cheers, 
Kit 
P.S.—Sorry to hear about your divorce. Your ex sounds like a proper knob head. 
P.P.S—You looked stunning tonight.
  
What is your teaser this week?
