Hello readers!  I’m very excited to be participating in The Many Lives of Fitzwilliam Darcy Blog Tour and to be able to welcome author Beau North and Brooke West to Austenesque Reviews today!  It sounds like Mr. Darcy fitzwilliamdarcy_frontcoverprint-1finds himself in an extraordinary situation in this Pride and Prejudice variation!  I can’t wait to read it myself!  Today Beau and Brooke share a scene from their new release to whet your appetite!

First, we’d like to thank Meredith and Austenesque Reviews for being a part of our blog tour. We’re so looking forward to discussing this with you all in the comments! To give a little set up for this excerpt, we join Mr. Darcy in London in the months after his departure from Hertfordshire. He has been trying valiantly to forget a certain lady he met in Meryton, with very limited success. Unfortunately for him, he happens upon one of the few people who know him well enough to see through his pretenses—his cousin, Colonel Fitzwilliam. His friendship with Colonel Fitzwilliam (here named Robert) is one of the more important relationships in his life, and their connection will be very important to Darcy further along in the story. We hope you enjoy! Continue reading »

Hi readers!!  I hope you are doing well!  Anything new and exciting happening for you?

I don’t have much to report here.  Mr. Bingley has been playing in bands a lot and I’ve been busy with new students (we get a lot at this time of year.) 🙂  It looks like both of us have a busier work schedule now and it sometimes takes a little bit of time to adjustment to that. 🙂

We got quite use to our schedules from the summer and the amount of time we were able to spend together.  But now it is a little hard since Mr. Bingley might be working or traveling on the weekends when I’m off.  Happily though, I was able to come and see a couple of Mr. Bingley’s gigs this past month and that was fun!

Other than that, the big events of this past month were my blog turning 7! (I still can’t believe how lucky I am to be doing this for 7 years!)

And going to see Bridget Jones’s Baby with my mom. 🙂

Which we loved!  Bridget’s opening lip-sync song was fab, Bridget was wonderfully adorable, and Mark was amazing!  I would definitely recommend!
