Hello friends! I hope your week if off to a great start! As you might remember, earlier this year a new Jane Austen publisher launched – Quills and Quartos Publishing! 🙌🏼 And now they are celebrating a brand new release from author A. D’Orazio! (woot woot!) 🥳 We are ardent admirers of Ms. D’Orazio’s writing and absolutely adored her emotionally turbulent and beautifully crafted stories – The Best Part of Love (our review) and A Short Period of Exquisite Felicity (our review).

We hope you enjoy this tempting excerpt Amy has brought to share with you all today! Continue reading »
