And what is even better is that they added two more authors to their ranks! In A Very Austen Valentine six authors share tales filled with hilarious matchmaking schemes, adorable meet cutes, and tender moments of affection.

There are six stories in this collection ranging from 54 to 121 pages in length. I hope you find this breakdown helpful! Continue reading »

In addition, I love that this anthology features stories set during the Christmas season – don’t you love seeing Jane Austen’s characters celebrate the holidays and and witness their Christmas traditions? I love Regency Christmases! (No commercialism there!)

There are four stories in this collection ranging from 20 to 79 in length. I hope you find this breakdown helpful! Continue reading »
