Teaser Tuesday: Between the Duke and the Deep Blue Sea by Sophia Nash

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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Between the Duke and the Deep Blue Sea by Sophia Nash has found its way to the top of my review stack. I received this historical romance through the Amazon Vine program. It will be published on Feb. 28. Here is a bit of the product description:
One of England’s most disreputable peers, Alexander Barclay, Duke of Kress, has stumbled upon a perfect opportunity for redemption. Having been exiled to Cornwall by the Prince Regent himself, Barclay discovers lovely Roxanne Vanderhaven clinging to the edge of a cliff, stranded there by her murderous blackguard of a husband . . . just waiting to be rescued.

Back on solid ground, Roxanne is desperate for a new life— once she’s retaliated for her husband’s despicable actions. Surprisingly, she finds herself drawn to her unlikely champion, certainly the last man in England she could count on. Yet, the infamous Duke of Kress isn’t quite the scoundrel he seems . . .

My teaser is a bit longer than one or two sentences. Here it is:
She hesitated. "So, you'll help me, then? Really?"

"Alexander Barclay--your servant." That ringing in his head, which always preceded regret, sounded in his ears. "So...what precisely did you have in mind?"

"Do you have a pistol?" She studied him with her big, round blue eyes and a smile that made him nervous. "Or, perhaps, a lovely little dagger?"
I have laughed three times in the first couple of pages. This one has started well!
