Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• share two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
Be sure 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!

“She wore a black dress, as always, and very few jewels. Antonio thought it was a pity she was committed, as a widow, to perpetual black, for it did not in his opinion truly accord with her very black hair and Castilian pallor.”

-From That Lady, by Kate O’Brien

"She wanted a prince of a man who longed for the whole of her: her marzipan throat and her cream-puff shoulders, her coconut-custard breasts, her dainty rice-and-cinnamon feet, and her delicate ginger pussy; one who would eat her, lick her, nip her, and drink her, and then grind her into powdered sugar in his arms."

p 28, The House on the Lagoon by Rosario Ferre, set in Puerto Rico.

It beautified her; she was younger; she was not a ridiculous old woman. This trick of her expression, this magic of her spirit, transfigured her, and while I still noted it I heard a whisper somewhere in the depths of my conscience:"Why not, after all - why not?"
The Aspern Papers by Henry James
