Hello dear friends!  Are you in the Christmas spirit yet?  If not, this enchanting vignette from Joana Starnes’ Miss Darcy’s Companion might just do the trick! 😉  As you may have seen, the lovely Joana Starnes has released a new audiobook of Miss Darcy’s Companion (which was one of my most favorite reads for 2016!)  Woot woot!  Now readers who like to listen to their favorite novels while they drive, clean, or work with their hands can do so with this lovely story about Elizabeth falling in love with Darcy while working as Georgiana’s companion!!

Many thanks, Meredith, for welcoming me here today. You’re so kind, it’s always wonderful to be your guest!

This time my good news is that Miss Darcy’s Companion was released in Audible earlier this month – my fourth book to become available in this format. Stevie Zimmerman is the producer, and as always, her narration style captures your heart and won’t let go, and her Mr Darcy is absolutely to die for! You can listen to the sample here to see what I mean.

I thought this would be the perfect time to celebrate, and if your readers would like to curl up with a paperback over the holidays, or sit back and listen to Stevie Zimmerman bringing the story to life, at the end of this post there’s a link to the international giveaway – a chance to win one of the 2 signed paperbacks, an audio code (10 are up for grabs) or a bag of goodies from our favourite places.

Hello, dear readers!  I am very excited to welcome back author Suzan Lauder to Austenesque Reviews today!  And she is here to celebrate her newest release, A Most Handsome Gentleman, which features a #HotCollins, yes, you heard correctly, Mr. Collins is “incredibly handsome” in this latest tale.  What a fun twist, don’t you think?  I wonder if anyone will succumb to Mr. Collins’s charms now that he has a more pleasing face and figure?  Today Suzan shares a lovely “deleted scene” from her new release where Lady Catherine and Anne de Bourgh meet Mr. Collins for the first time!

This isn’t the first time I’ve written a brand new vignette for Meredith’s blog, and I hope to continue the tradition with future books.

My apologies to Leslie, Nina, Gail, and Ellen, as they did not beta or edit this scene, and there will be extra commas.

This particular vignette is the recruitment interview for the handsome Mr. Collins by Lady Catherine and Anne de Bourgh.

A New Rector for Hunsford: Part One

The gentleman in front of Lady Catherine was tall and, judging from the manner in which his clerical robes hung loosely on his frame, a bit on the thin side. On the other hand, his posture was sturdy enough—rather like an old oak—though he was barely five and twenty. After a dauntingly complete set of questions intended to intimidate him into showing his flaws, he asked if that was all. Continue reading »

Hello readers!  We are very excited to welcome a new author, Jessie Lewis, to Austenesque Reviews today! As you might have seen and heard, Jessie is celebrating her debut release with Meryton Press, entitled Mistaken!  (Which sounds like such a unique and fun story with some interesting twists!)  I cannot wait to read Mistaken, especially after reading this lovely vignette Jessie is sharing with us today!  

Thank you so much, Meredith, for inviting me to end my blog tour here at Austenesque Reviews. For this last post, I’ve saved one of my very favourite deleted scenes to share with your readers—one that didn’t quite make the final edit but which is still very close to my heart.

It might be considered somewhat of a spoiler, since it features Darcy and Elizabeth together, but I don’t mind admitting that I’m a complete D&E-aholic and couldn’t have written a story without their HEA if I’d tried! In any case, I wanted to end the blog tour with a promise of happiness for our favourite couple.

Thank you, everyone, for stopping by. Please feel free to ask me any questions in the comments, or you can contact me via my social media links or blog page (links below). I’d love to hear from you!
