Hi friends! I know it is a little late in the month to be sharing the agenda, but that’s because I was too busy starting the month with two lovely author visits – did you see them?
I hope you all had a lovely October! Did you do anything fun?
I’m happy to say that I feel like I kept up with blogging and reading better in October!! I think it helps that we are starting to feel more fall weather. 🍂 I’m staying in more, instead of spending the day at the beach. 😉 📚 📚 📚
Hello readers! I’m very excited to welcome back one of my favorite authors, Cat Gardiner, to Austenesque Reviews today! Fans of Cat Gardiner will know that this past summer she released the final installment of her exhilarating and phenomenal Conscience Series. For those who aren’t familiar, the Conscience series is a contemporary adaptation of Pride and Prejudice that takes readers on a romantic adventure in a world full of sexy assassins, motorcycles, intense romance, and thrilling danger! And if you haven’t checked it out yet, you should definitely consider doing so soon!!!
Cat is here today to celebrate releasing the box set version of this series, titled Conscience Rising, on KOBO and Nook! Now you can binge read this series to your heart’s content!! (By the way that is what I will be doing in a few weeks!!)
Hi Cat! It is such a pleasure to have you visit my blog today; I am so excited to talk more about two of my most favorite incarnations of Jane Austen’s Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet! For my first question, I would like to ask how it all began? How did you get the idea to write a James Bond/spy-thriller/modern-day Pride and Prejudice?
Hi Meredith! I’m tickled to be here again to chit chat with you. Thank you for inviting me to one of my favorite places! Ah … the beginning of Iceman. Well, its genesis began when I was reading and posting on a well-known JAFF site. I had just finished posting Lucky 13 over a 30-day Christmas blitz and thought—as I did with L13—“what hasn’t been written on the modern front yet? I need a summer posting blitz.” At the time, I think my husband and I were binge watching Bond movies. Voila!Continue reading »
Happy Monday, friends! I can’t think of a better way to start the week than to share the lovely cover of Cat Gardiner’s long-expected release of In Good Conscience!!! If you are new to this series, it is an exhilarating adventure and epic romance where a modern-day Darcy is an ex-SEAL assassin contracted by the CIA who meets a vulnerable and manipulated Lizzy Bennet while out on a mission and they embark on a dangerous and thrilling journey from there! It has been wonderful to see Iceman’s and Lakmé’s adventures continue after the first book – Denial of Conscience , I cannot wait to see what is in store in this latest adventure!!
~ From the Author ~
Hi, everyone! I’m so honored and excited to visit with Meredith and her Austenesque Reviews community of friends and avid readers. Thank you all for stopping by for the In Good Conscience cover reveal. I hope to kick off a little excitement for the book release that will be a white-knuckle summer read.
Of all the covers in The Conscience Series, I adore this last one the most, and I hope you like it as well! While I never intended to write one, let alone two and a half, sequels to Denial of Conscience, it’s been an incredible ride with one of the hottest men I’ve written: Iceman. It turned out that so many readers adored this particular contemporary, alpha-male Fitzwilliam Darcy. Harley Davidson biker, former SEAL, idealistic (yet tormented) government-sanctioned assassin, and the great protector of Elizabeth had them asking for more and thank you for that!!!! He may give her wings to fly (on the back of her own Harley) but he is always the protector. And she is always his number one focus.
So here we are, book three in The Conscience Series: In Good Conscience, The Final Adventure, set to release shortly. It will be a full novel of 100k+ words and available in Nook and Kindle e-books, 6×8 paperback, and eventually offered in a Kobo e-book bundle titled: Conscience Rising for readers new to the series who wish to binge read on all 3 ½ books!
Thank you again Meredith for hosting the cover reveal! Now, let’s get on and ride! Vroom-vroom.Continue reading »
