Hi readers! I am so happy to welcome back author L.L. Diamond to Austenesque Reviews today! Leslie is here to celebrate the release of Particular Attachments which is a sequel to her Pride and Prejudice variation, Particular Intentions. Particular Attachments has definitely caught my eye (and not just because of the stunning cover) but because it is about Georgiana Darcy – I love stories that feature Georgiana and her path to finding love! Leslie brings with her today a lovely outtake that shows Georgiana and Nathaniel at the young ages of eight and twelve. We hope you enjoy!
Thank you so much, Meredith! It was a long road writing Particular Attachments, but I’m so excited about sharing Georgiana and Lord Sele’s story with everyone. I only hope everyone comes to care for Georgiana and love she and Nathaniel’s story as much as I do!
I always set some sort of challenge for myself with each book. With Particular Intentions, I wanted to keep to strictly Darcy and Elizabeth’s point of view. With Particular Attachments, we only previously knew Georgiana, so I narrowed everything to strictly from her perspective. It was challenging to try to cover everything in that way, but it reminded me a bit of Jane Austen in that she didn’t write scenes between men. She would never have been privy to those conversations, so did not write them because she didn’t know the dynamics. Anyway, I wrote this outtake just for fun to get an idea of Lord Sele’s (Nathaniel’s) perspective. I hope you enjoy it!
