Hi readers, I’m excited to share another of my Austenesque Top Ten lists with you today!

For those who haven’t seen this kind of post before, it is where I share some of my all-time favorite Austenesque works.  Sometimes I group them by novel (Persuasion, Sense and Sensibility),  sometimes I group them by sub-genre (Sequels, Modern-day Adaptations), and sometimes I group them by theme (Summer, Halloween). 😉

Today’s list is for all of those who enjoy traveling through time and imagining themselves in Jane Austen’s world!  Whether it is time travel, time-slip, body-swap, or some other phenomena – I thought it would be fun to share my favorite Austenesque Time Travel novels.  I hope you enjoy!!

 

* These lists are based only on the novels I have read and reviewed on this blog and are my top ten favorites.

**These lists are subject to change.

Another Place in Time

Author: Mary Lydon Simonsen

Type of Novel: Time Travel/Time Slip

My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

My Review   I   Add to Cart   I   Add to Shelf

“Through Ms. Simonsen’s vivid descriptions and informative prose, I was able to see, feel, taste, smell, and breathe in 1812 in Another Place in Time. What a fantastic trip! Ms. Simonsen doesn’t need advancements in science or sophisticated technology, she can travel through time with her mighty pen!” Continue reading »

Romantic Adventures in Bath!

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Source: Review Copy from Author

If you haven’t already heard, Jane Odiwe has written three sensational time-slip novels about Jane Austen, the people in her life, and her writing:

In Searching for Captain Wentworth, readers travel back to 1802 to learn more about Jane Austen’s “silent” Bath years and perhaps fall in love with one of her brothers!

In Project Darcy, Ms. Odiwe takes readers to Steventon in 1796, where readers encounter Tom Lefroy and observe a beautifully plausible romance!

And in her latest time-slip tale, Searching for Mr. Tilney, Ms. Odiwe transports readers back to 1788-1789, where we witness both Cassandra and Jane Austen experience their first tastes of love!

NOTE:  Each novel is standalone, and does not need to be read in any particular order.

Our main heroine in this tale, Caroline Heath, is a fashion student with an affinity for Jane Austen. And her story begins in the winter of 1975, when she travels to Bath with family friends and finds an old journal that she concludes must have belonged to Jane Austen! The journal dates from 1788 and tells the important events and exchanges between Jane and Cassandra and their cousins while traveling to Kent and Bath. But in addition to reading this illuminating journal, Caroline experiences moments where she feels herself transported to Jane Austen’s world and in the body of Cassandra Austen! How is this possible?!? Continue reading »

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.”
