Austenesque ARC

Hi friends! It is time for another Austenesque ARC Giveaway!  🤗❤️

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. *Except for A Matter of Chance which is new and kindly donated by the lovely L.L. Diamond!

*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 4 ARCs/previously owned books in this giveaway but I’ll choose 5 winners – for the books I’m giving away and 1 who will choose one of the 4 books to receive as an ebook. 🥰

In The Colonel, which is set in the year 2002, we learn what happened to our dear colonel after 1950. Richard’s story is unfolded and discovered by his son Ben, who, after surviving the events of 9/11 has made some changes in his life and has returned to his family home. It is there he finds the many unknown truths of his father’s life… Continue reading »
