Happy Wednesday friends! I’m very excited to welcome back Victoria Kincaid to Austenesque Reviews today! As you might have already heard she recently released audiobooks for 2 of our favorite books of hers – The Unforgettable Mr. Darcy and President Darcy! 🙌🏼 If you haven’t read either of these yet…let me try to convince you to change that (see here and here!) Today Victoria shares a gem of a scene from President Darcy – talk about awkward first impressions!

Hi Meredith! Thank you for welcoming me back to your blog. I am pleased to announce the release of two new audiobooks: President Darcy andThe Unforgettable Mr. Darcy, two of my most popular books. I am very pleased with how both audiobooks turned out. Lucy Emerson does a great job with the various characters in President Darcy—my first audiobook with an American accent! The Unforgettable Mr. Darcy is narrated by Stevie Zimmerman, who has done a wonderful job with many other JAFF books, including The Secrets of Darcy and Elizabeth. You can hear samples of the audiobooks by clicking the links above. Please enjoy the excerpt below from President Darcy!

~ Book Description ~

President William Darcy has it all: wealth, intelligence, and the most powerful job in the country. Despite what his friends say, he is not lonely in the White House. He’s not. And he has vowed not to date while he’s in office. Nor is he interested in Elizabeth Bennet. She might be pretty and funny and smart, but her family is nouveau riche and unbearable. Unfortunately, he encounters her everywhere in Washington, D.C.—making her harder and harder to ignore. Why can’t he get her out of his mind?

Elizabeth Bennet enjoys her job with the Red Cross and loves her family, despite their tendency to embarrass her. At a White House state dinner, they cause her to make an unfavorable impression on the president, who labels her unattractive and uninteresting. Those words are immediately broadcast on Twitter, so the whole world now knows the president insulted her. Elizabeth just wants to avoid the man—who, let’s admit it, is proud and difficult. For some reason he acts all friendly when they keep running into each other, but she knows he’s judging her.

Eventually, circumstances force Darcy and Elizabeth to confront their true feelings for each other, with explosive results. But even if they can find common ground, Mr. Darcy is still the president—with limited privacy and unlimited responsibilities—and his enemies won’t hesitate to use his feelings for Elizabeth against him.

Can President Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet find their way to happily ever after? Continue reading »

Austenesque ARC

Hi friends! It’s time for one of my favorite posts!!  🤗❤️

If you are new to this blog, I shall explain. ☺️ I sometimes acquire duplicate copies of Austenesque books (either from me buying books I already own or from generous readers who donate from their own collection) and then host a giveaway to find them some new homes! 📚🏡

These books are most often gently used or ARC – Advanced Reader Copies – and will be labeled as such next to the title.

*Since the giveaways of these previously owned books are open just for US readers (sorry friends, international shipping costs sometimes 3x the price of the book), I am hosting a Winner’s Choice ebook option for all our international friends! 📱📖

There are 5 ARCs/previously owned books and in this giveaway but I’ll choose 6 winners – 5 for the books I’m giving away and 1 who will choose one of the 5 books to receive as an ebook. 🥰 Continue reading »
