Hi friends! I am very excited to feature Reina Williams, author of several books including two Austenesque series, here on Austenesque Reviews today! Reina has been a long time reader and friend to this blog (she has even sent me some books for my ARC giveaways!), but this is her very first visit to this blog to talk about her books! Today, Reina is sharing a little excerpt from her Pride and Prejudice sequel series, Love at Pemberley, to whet your appetite! We hope you enjoy!
Thanks to Meredith for hosting me on her lovely blog and to all the amazing readers and writers who visit—you all have inspired me throughout my journey as a reader and writer! My writing journey began in earnest in 2009 after reading some Darcy-related fiction. My own ideas for Regency romance poured out and became my first series, A Gentleman’s Daughter, set in a world similar to Jane Austen’s, of the landed gentry and their trials and triumphs. In the midst of working on another series during the 200th anniversary year of Pride and Prejudice, a new idea tickled at me: the story of Kitty Bennet and Colonel Fitzwilliam. This idea became Most Truly, the first novella in the Love at Pemberley series. Three novellas followed, continuing the beloved story of Pride and Prejudice in sweet, light stories (I can’t and don’t try to match the style and wit of Ms. Austen). My latest Austen-inspired series, Rancho Valle (Jane Austen in California), is contemporary and set in the fictional “country village” of Rancho Valle, in Sonoma County, where the locals find family and love.
This excerpt is from the second book in the Love at Pemberley series, Miss Darcy Decides, wherein Georgiana must decide if Sir Camden Sutton, a neighbor of the Bingleys (in their new home closer to Pemberley than Netherfield), is worthy of her love—and if so, whether she can leave her beloved family, and Pemberley. Sir Camden has returned home, awaiting her decision, and visits with the Bingleys (had to have the Bingleys!). 🙂 Continue reading »
