Hi dear friends! So, almost a year ago to the date we were here hosting a special Cover Reveal/Release Day Announcement for Brenda J. Webb’s Proof Of Love – a imaginative and epic romance that we adored! And now, Brenda is back with another new release! I cannot tell you how excited I am that Brenda has a new book coming out today – go Brenda!! Her new release, Taking Another Chance, sounds wonderful – such a creative premise!

Today, Brenda is sharing the full cover of her new release, Taking Another Chance, and a tempting excerpt in celebration of this book’s release!!

Thank you for allowing me to reveal the cover for my latest book on your lovely site Meredith. It is always a joy visiting with you and your readers. As a way of introduction to this story, I have always wanted to write a story where an older Darcy and Elizabeth find each other again and TAKING ANOTHER CHANCE is the result.

The blurb sets the stage for my story; however, for those who hate stories where Darcy is married to someone before Elizabeth, allow me to hint that the marriage began with deception and was of short duration. Those who read my books know that I never have ODC in love with anyone but each other. After all, Some Loves Are Meant To Be!

~ Book Description ~

Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet have suffered profound heartache in the fourteen years since parting in Lambton when word of Lydia’s folly reached her family.

At the age of forty, Darcy is now a widower raising a teenage daughter, whilst Elizabeth, a spinster, has spent the intervening years in service.

Unexpectedly thrown into each other’s company by circumstances not of their making, has time stood still when it comes to matters of the heart?

Can their timeless love survive the newest obstacles to happiness?

And without further ado….here is the big reveal!!!

Hi dear friends! I’m so excited to take part in this special announcement today!  I’ve loved everything I’ve read by Beau North, but I especially adored her soul-stirring and poignant love story Longbourn’s Songbird – which was one of my Favorite Reads of 2016 and one of my Top Ten Favorite Austenesque Retellings, but more importantly this title won a Silver IPPY award in 2017 (so very deserving!!) Longbourn’s Songbird is beloved by many Austenesque readers and I’m so thrilled that Beau is giving us more!!

Thank you, Meredith, for hosting me today! As some of my readers may know, I’ve been planning a follow-up to my first novel, Longbourn’s Songbird, for…well, since before I wrote Longbourn’s Songbird, to be honest! And now, after many years of working in fits and starts, I can finally say that The Colonel is ready to meet the world!

This story takes place both concurrently with and after the events of Longbourn’s Songbird, and follows the story of Richard Fitzwilliam, from his life before WWII, his adventures in New York in the 1950’s to the California coast in the 1960’s. We are seeing his story unfold through the eyes of his adult son, Ben, who in 2002 has decided to write a book about his father and the Fitzwilliam/Darcy/DeBourgh family. Readers will see characters from Longbourn’s Songbird, including Anne and Charlotte, Georgiana, Jane and Bingley. There will also be new characters like Maggie and Tom Darcy, the grown children of Will Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet as Richard and Ben seek to find meaning in some of the most tumultuous times in American history. This book is a labor of love, my longest and most personal to date. Continue reading »

Hi friends! I’m so excited to welcome author Jessie Lewis to my blog today! I’ve so loved everything I’ve read by Jessie Lewis (for proof see: here and here) and I almost was lucky enough to meet up with her when I was in England last year (don’t worry, Jessie, we will make it happen next time for sure!) Jessie is visiting today to share a special announcement, and I hope you are as excited by it as I am!!

From the Author

Thank you, Meredith, for welcoming me back to Austenesque Reviews. Many of your readers are familiar with the novel I’m talking about today — Mistaken was kindly voted one of your readers’ favourite Austenesque novels in 2017 and one of your own favourites for 2018.

I am here to let your readers know that, after a short hiatus, Mistaken is once more available as an ebook on Amazon, both to purchase and via the Kindle Unlimited programme. It’s had a bit of a make-over and has a few extended and a few new scenes, plus a new epilogue. Other than that, in essentials, it is very much what is ever was, which I hope will please those who enjoyed it and wish to read it again on KU. Continue reading »
