Hi readers!  I’m so excited to welcome author Pamela Lynne to Austenesque Reviews today! I’ve loved everything I’ve read by Pamela!  Her Pride and Prejudice variations are fabulous, and I adore her original characters – especially Sebastian!  Today Pamela Lynne is here to talk about her new Regency series! Woot!!  A whole new group of books with original characters!!  In her post you will learn about the three heroes that will be spotlighted in this new series!

Hello everyone! Thank you so much, Meredith, for hosting me again here at Austenesque Reviews. Today, I would like to introduce readers to the men of the Granville family. These men, and the women who love them, are at the heart of my upcoming release Surrendering the Past, and the subsequent books of the Granville Legacy Series.

These Granville men are from a proud Norman lineage and share the common fair traits of that heritage, except for the black sheep of the family—Captain Richard Granville. Richard has a reputation as a ruffian, the wild, ungrateful son of a powerful man. But who is he really, and to what lengths will he go to break the patterns of the past?

Duty, sacrifice, honor—they can all be damned to hell with Litchfield, your mother and father, and anyone else who expects you lay yourself upon the altar of obligation and convenience. I have spent most of my life running from that man and I will spend the rest of it keeping you safe from him, whether you like it or not.”

Happy Memorial Day, readers! Today, Austenesque Reviews is paid a visit from an author who may be new to some of you – Sara Marks, who just recently published a Persuasion modern-day retelling titled Modern Persuasion!  A new release that I’m looking forward to reading soon!  While chatting with Sara through emails, we discovered that we are both fond of making lists!  Since Sara is a list-maker, I asked if she would make one for dear Anne! 🙂  We hope you enjoy!

Top 10 Things I Love About Anne Elliot

1. Anne is not your typical middle child.  Instead of trying to grab any attention she can, she is thoughtful and measured.  I always felt she was more like the eldest child, Mary the middle child, and Elizabeth the spoiled youngest.

2. She sees and judges people on what she can observe about them, not on their status in society.

3. She loves Mary and tries to give her sister the attention she thinks Mary craves.

4. She sees Lady Russell as the next best thing to her mother, recognizing that sometimes you need a parent (especially when your living one refuses to act the role).

Soak Up the Sun and Fun of Summer!

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Source: Review Copy from Authors

Summer is my favorite time of year, I love warm weather and being in the water! I couldn’t think of a better way to start the summer season off than to read the summer-themed anthology in the Holidays with Jane series! There are six short stories in this anthology (one for each Jane Austen novel) and each story takes place in present-day. In this collection readers witness various summer activities such as traveling on a Caribbean cruise, attending sleep-away camp, and hanging out with friends home from college.

I hope you find this breakdown helpful! Continue reading »
