What Are You Reading? ~ March 29, 2017

* * Post contains affiliate links. * *


What are you Reading?  Let me know what your current read is, what you recently finish reading, and what you plan on reading next! 

Here's my list:


I'm currently reading Alone by Scott Sigler. I'm about 50 pages in. I've had a bit of a slow start with it. Mostly my fault being distracted by other things, but the first few pages felt awkward to me. It does seem to be flowing better now. 




I recently finished The Many Lives of Fitzwilliam Darcy by Beau North and Brooke West. I loved it! It's Groundhogs Day meets Pride and Prejudice. 5/5 stars!







What's next? I think I'm going to read Ever the Hunted by Erin Summerill. Although, that could change depending on how I'm feeling. :)

The Darcy Monologues Cover Reveal & Giveaway!


Today's the day! The day for the big cover reveal! 

Here it is!

BAM!




Insights from Christina Boyd about the cover:

The amazing cover art is the genius of Shari Ryan of MadHat Books. She took the cover concept and created exactly as I envisioned. Shari professionally, quickly, and concisely handled my countless questions, suggestions, and “just one more tweak” in the challenging format of the print interior—even had a special script code written to make it happen. And then when the original concept had to be scrapped because of the print-on-demand company’s limitations that were beyond our control (long, convoluted story only to be shared over strong cocktails), Shari AGAIN created the present cover and interior for both print and e-book. I could not recommend her expertise more!
Multi-talented author Beau North designed the individual fantastic short story graphics for our social media promotions. I think each gives a lovely overall feel for each story. And the color concept I think works well with #TheDarcyMonologues branding, too!

Book Description


“You must allow me to tell you...”

For over two hundred years, Jane Austen’s Mr. Darcy has captivated readers’ imaginations as the ultimate catch. Rich. Powerful. Noble. Handsome. And yet, as Miss Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice” is established through Elizabeth Bennet’s fine eyes, how are we to know what his tortured soul is indeed thinking? How does Darcy progress from “She is tolerable: but not handsome enough to tempt me” to “I thought only of you”? 

In this romance anthology, fifteen Austen-inspired authors assemble to sketch Darcy’s character through a series of re-imaginings, set in the Regency through contemporary times—from faithful narratives to the fanciful. Herein “The Darcy Monologues”, the man himself reveals his intimate thoughts, his passionate dreams, and his journey to love—all told with a previously concealed wit and enduring charm. 


Stories by: Susan Adriani * Sara Angelini * J. Marie Croft * Karen M Cox * Jan Hahn * Jenetta James * Lory Lilian * KaraLynne Mackrory * Beau North * Ruth Phillips Oakland * Natalie Richards * Sophia Rose * Joana Starnes * Melanie Stanford * Caitlin Williams




Author Information


Formally trained as a fine artist and illustrator, Susan Adriani discovered her passion for storytelling over a decade after she graduated from a local art college near her childhood home in New England. Susan is the author of The Truth about Mr. Darcy and Darkness Falls upon Pemberley.


Sara Angelini is a lawyer living in the San Francisco Bay area with her husband, three kids, two dogs, a frog, some fish, and a few hundred stick bugs. She never went to veterinary school but if she had, she would have been a true proficient. She enjoys writing from Darcy’s point of view in a way that shows his humor and vulnerability. Her first book, The Trials of the Honorable F. Darcy, was published in 2008. She is the co-founder of www.austenunderground.com, where her other Pride and Prejudice-inspired works can be read.


Karen M Cox is an award-winning author of four novels accented with romance and history: 1932, Find Wonder in All Things, At the Edge of the Sea, and Undeceived. She also wrote “Northanger Revisited 2015”, which appeared in the anthology Sun-Kissed: Effusions of Summer. Originally from Everett, Washington, Karen now lives in Central Kentucky with her husband, works as a pediatric speech pathologist, encourages her children, and spoils her granddaughter. Like Austen’s Emma, Karen has many hobbies and projects she doesn’t quite finish, but like Elizabeth Bennet, she aspires to be a great reader and an excellent walker. 


J. Marie Croft is a self-proclaimed word nerd and adherent of Jane Austen’s quote “Let other pens dwell on guilt and misery.’ Bearing witness to her fondness for Pride and Prejudice, wordplay, and laughter are Joanne’s light-hearted novel, Love at First Slight, a Babblings of a Bookworm Favourite Read of 2014, her humorous short story, “Spyglasses and Sunburns,” in the Sun-Kissed: Effusions of Summer anthology, and a playful novella, A Little Whimsical in His Civilities, Just Jane 1813’s Favorite JAFF Novella of 2016.


Award-winning writer Jan Hahn is the author of four Austen-inspired novels. She studied music at the University of Texas but discovered her true love was a combination of journalism and literature. Her first book, An Arranged Marriage, was published in 2011, followed by The Journey, The Secret Betrothal, and A Peculiar Connection. She agrees with Mr. Darcy’s words in Pride and Prejudice: “A lady’s imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony in a moment.” She is a member of the Jane Austen Society of North America, lives in Texas, has five children and a gaggle of gorgeous grandchildren.


Jenetta James is a mother, lawyer, writer, and taker-on of too much. She grew up in Cambridge and read history at Oxford University where she was a scholar and president of the Oxford University History Society. After graduating, she took to the law and now practices full time as a barrister. Over the years, she has lived in France, Hungary and Trinidad as well as her native England. Jenetta currently lives in London with her husband and children where she enjoys reading, laughing and playing with Lego. She is the author of Suddenly Mrs. Darcy and The Elizabeth Papers.


Lory Lilian fell in love with Pride and Prejudice thirty-three years ago and discovered the charm of Jane Austen fanfiction exactly twenty years later. She lives in Bucharest, Romania, is a proud mother of an amazing daughter, and addicted to anything Austen. After a career in business, she dedicates her time to reading and writing. Lory is the author of six bestselling books: Rainy Days, Remembrances of the Past, His Uncle’s Favorite, The Perfect Match, Sketching Mr. Darcy, The Rainbow Promise, and A Man with Faults. JAFF readers call her the “Queen of Hot Mush” and she loves it.


KaraLynne Mackrory is no newbie to the writing world. She made her debut as an author at the tender age of 13 when she wrote her first set of bad poetry. As a young adult, she steered clear of bad prose and achieved a degree in social work. Years later, she has published four Austen inspired novels so full of romantic sensibilities as to give you a swoon and hopefully a few laughs. Her books turned out better than her poetry and are: Falling for Mr. Darcy, Bluebells in the Mourning, the IPPY award-winning Haunting Mr. Darcy, and Yours Forevermore, Darcy.


Beau North is the author of Longbourn’s Songbird, The Many Lives of Fitzwilliam Darcy, and a contributor to the anthology Then Comes Winter. Beau is a native southerner who now calls Portland, Oregon home with her husband and two cats. She attended the University of South Carolina where she began a lifelong obsession with literature. In her spare time, Beau is the co-host of the podcast Excessively Diverted: Modern Austen Onscreen.


Mild-mannered business woman by day, hopeless romantic by night, Ruth Phillips Oakland was always a fan of the fictional gentleman from Derbyshire, but it was her discovery of Jane Austen fanfiction in 2006 that inspired Ruth to become a writer. Ruth has written dozens of short stories posted online and the published novel entitled, My BFF. Ruth lives in New England with her favorite husband of over thirty years and is thrilled to be included in this anthology with so many of her favorite authors and friends. 


Natalie Richards is a writer, blogger, and singer. She started her book review blog, Songs & Stories, in late 2010 after falling in love with Jane Austen fanfiction. Her writing can also be found on Figment, the Darcy & Lizzy Forum, TeenInk Magazine, and in the Austenesque anthologies Sun-Kissed: Effusions of Summer and Then Comes Winter. She resides with her family in the Oregon countryside and currently works as a waitress and babysitter. 


Sophia Rose is a native Californian currently residing in Michigan. A long-time Jane Austen fan, she is a contributing author to Sun-Kissed: Effusions of Summer and Then Comes Winter anthologies. Sophia’s love for writing began as a teen writing humorous stories submitted for creative writing class and high school writing club. Writing was set aside while Sophia pursued degrees and certificates in education, special education, family history, and social work leading to a rewarding career. Health issues led to reduced work hours and an opportunity to read, beta, and review books, and return to writing stories that lean toward the humorous side and always end with a happily ever after.


Melanie Stanford reads too much, plays music too loud, is sometimes dancing, and always daydreaming. She would also like her very own TARDIS, but only to travel to the past. She lives in Canada with her husband and four kids. She is the author of SWAY, a retelling of Jane Austen’s Persuasion, shortlisted for the Kobo Emerging Writer Prize, and the short story “Becoming Fanny” featured in the anthology Then Comes Winter. Her second novel, Collide, inspired by Elizabeth Gaskell’s North and South, is coming soon. You can find her at melaniestanfordbooks.com, on Twitter @MelMStanford, and on Facebook @ MelanieStanfordauthor.


Joana Starnes lives in the south of England with her family. Over the years, she has swapped several hats—physician, lecturer, clinical data analyst—but feels most comfortable in a bonnet. She has been living in Georgian England for decades in her imagination and plans to continue in that vein till she lays hands on a time machine. She is the author of seven Austen-inspired novels: From This Day Forward ~ The Darcys of Pemberley, The Subsequent Proposal, The Second Chance, The Falmouth Connection, The Unthinkable Triangle, Miss Darcy’s Companion, and Mr Bennet’s Dutiful Daughter. You can connect with Joana through her website http://www.joanastarnes.co.uk/ and on Facebook via All Roads Lead to Pemberley.


Caitlin Williams is an award-winning author of two novels, Ardently and the best-selling The Coming of Age of Elizabeth Bennet, both of which spin the plot of Pride and Prejudice around but keep the characters just the same. Originally from South London, Caitlin spent thirteen years as a detective in the Metropolitan Police but is currently on a break from Scotland Yard so she can spend more time at home with her two children and write. She now lives in Kent, where she spends a lot of time daydreaming about Mr. Darcy, playing with dinosaurs, and trying not to look at the laundry pile.


Christina Boyd wears many hats as she is an editor under her own banner The Quill Ink, a contributor to Austenprose, and a ceramicist and proprietor of Stir Crazy Mama’s Artworks. A life member of the Jane Austen Society of North America, Christina lives in the wilds of the Pacific Northwest with her dear Mr. B, two busy teenagers, and a retriever named BiBi. Visiting Jane Austen's England was made possible by her book boyfriend and star crush Henry Cavill when she won a trip to meet him on the London Eye in the spring of 2017.

Mistress Blog Tour ~ Excerpt & #Giveaway!

Hello, Friends! I'm delighted to be part of Sophie Turner's Mistress Blog Tour! At this stop, Sophie brings us an excerpt that certainly left me hanging...wanting to read more!! I hope you enjoy! 





Good morning, Candy. It’s such a pleasure to be here with you and your readers to share this excerpt from my latest release, “Mistress.” In this story, Elizabeth is a young widow. One of the interesting things about writing Elizabeth as a widow was that she was allowed to do different things in her courtship with Mr. Darcy than an unmarried Elizabeth could. Various circumstances, including a troublesome tenant, lead to her going for daily drives with Darcy in his phaeton, for at this time it is not safe for her to go out walking by herself.



     Mason dressed him, and then Darcy left the man tidying up the room, himself going down to breakfast. If there was any advantage to his rising even earlier than he usually did, it was that he was easily the first to arrive for the meal, and could usually break his fast well before the later-rising, more unpleasant members of the house party made their way in. On this morning, he breakfasted with no-one, as it turned out, although Netherfield’s servants had learned his ways and had a pot of coffee at the ready when he walked in. This suited Darcy quite well, and he slipped out of the house and down to the stables; he would go for a brief ride to pass the time, then make the drive to Longbourn.

     Elizabeth was ready for him when he completed the latter; she came out wearing an exceedingly fetching bonnet, although Darcy suspected his opinion of the bonnet had everything to do with the countenance it framed. He assisted her up into the phaeton and then climbed in himself, quietly checking the case beside him on the seat before he took up the ribbons and told his horses to walk on.

     “Where do you wish to go today? Out toward Oakham Mount, perhaps?” Darcy asked. Yesterday she had asked him if he would drive her into Meryton in a tone of some embarrassment, as she was of the hope that a book she had ordered had come in.

     “Oh, Oakham Mount sounds very nice,” Elizabeth said.

     Darcy set his horses trotting down the lane thither, then asked, “And how do you find Waverley, so far?”

     Elizabeth’s embarrassment, he had learned, was in exposing herself as a novel reader, but it had been alleviated by his assuring her that he very much enjoyed novels as well, and while he had not yet read Waverley, he intended to, and would be interested to learn her opinion.

     “I have not progressed very far, but I am enjoying it. It is much easier to be stuck indoors when one is absorbed in a good book.”

     “I entirely agree, and it should not be too much longer now, before Boyce may be arrested.”

     “I hope so – even with my books, I hardly know what I should have done if not for our drives. I believe I would have gone crazy, trapped inside that house. I cannot thank you enough for giving me so much of your time.”

     There was something peculiar in her tone, when she spoke of being trapped inside that house, and Darcy glanced over at her sharply. He could not make out anything more of her meaning by her countenance, however, and when he spoke, he endeavoured to do so lightly. “It is nothing. You may repay me by loaning me Waverley when you are done.”

     “If I can loan you a book, I shall consider that quite an accomplishment.”

     “I fear someone has been telling you tales of the library at Pemberley. It is larger than that of Netherfield, certainly, but it – ”

     “No, no, you must not demean your library. I have imagined it as a most delightful room indeed, and I do not wish to have my imagination contradicted. And I have heard it said that you are always buying books.”

     “I should not say always.”

     “Well, then, make your confession – how many books have you purchased this year?”

     Darcy began a count, lost track at three and twenty, and finally said, “Upwards of twenty, I believe.”

     She laughed heartily. “And still the other half of the year remaining. No, sir, I will not allow you to demean your library.”

     “I was going on a long sea voyage,” said he, defensively.

     “Oh, if I feel trapped inside a house, I fear I should have gone mad on board a ship. I know you could walk about on the deck, but still, I do not know how you bore it.”

     “The same way one bears any journey, I think – for the promise of what is to come.”

     “Yes, of course, to see your sister. And then to return to your library at Pemberley,” she said, with a teasing smile.

     No, Elizabeth, it was to return to you – to finally have my second chance after those painful years of heartache, he thought, but did not say.

     Darcy’s lack of a response brought a lull in their conversation, but they had long since reached a point of comfort in each other’s presence that precluded the need to be constantly talking. They reached Oakham Mount, a sight Darcy found rather underwhelming, having been reared on childhood tours of his native county. He did not share this with Elizabeth, however, and instead listened sympathetically to her lamentations on how she would have liked to walk to the top as he turned the phaeton.

     They returned quietly as well – it was a beautiful morning, and Darcy could see she was enjoying it as much as he was. Her enjoyment must have been greater, though, for Darcy’s opportunities to be out of doors were not so limited as hers were presently. He kept his team trotting on at a steady pace, until he was shocked to feel Elizabeth’s hand clap down upon his knee, as she gasped, “My God, it’s him!”





Book Description: 

One night, to decide his entire life's happiness. 

Chastened by Charles Bingley following Mr. Bennet’s untimely death, Fitzwilliam Darcy determines he will offer marriage to Elizabeth Bennet, but she marries another. 

Years later, a widowed Elizabeth is mistress of Longbourn, and has vowed she will never marry again. A house party at Netherfield brings them back together, but Darcy will have to win more than her heart if he is to have any chance at making her mistress of Pemberley. 

Readers of Sophie Turner's more chaste Constant Love series should be aware that this novel contains decidedly adult content at certain parts of the story.

 Author Biography

Sophie Turner worked as an online editor before delving even more fully into the tech world. Writing, researching the Regency era, and occasionally dreaming about living in Britain are her escapes from her day job. 

She was afraid of long series until she ventured upon Patrick O’Brian’s 20-book Aubrey-Maturin masterpiece, something she might have repeated five times through. 

Alas, her Constant Love series is only planned to be seven books right now, and consists of A Constant Love, A Change of Legacies, and the in-progress A Season Lost. 

She blogs about her writing endeavours at sophie-turner-acl.blogspot.com, where readers can find direction for the various social drawing-rooms across the Internet where she may be called upon.

Caroline Blog Tour ~ Excerpt & Giveaway!

Hello, Friends! I'm delighted to have Sue Barr here with and excerpt from her new book, Caroline! I hope you enjoy! And be sure to read to the bottom of the post for giveaway details!





Good morning, Candy, and thank you for hosting this excerpt post for my latest release, Caroline, Pride & Prejudice Continued… Book One. I am here today to share an excerpt where we get to see the Kerr brothers interact with each other as Nathan searches the room for the red haired beauty that has caught his latest attentions. I hope your readers look forward to getting to know Lord Nathan Kerr and his brother too!


     From an archway, Nathan surveyed the ballroom, searching for Miss Bingley’s face. The room slowly filled with guests and soon the cacophony of voices rose in tandem with the heat of many bodies. His brother joined him and they stood together, nodding politely at those who wished them well.

     “I see you are much distracted.” Max murmured quietly. “Could it be you wait for a certain red haired beauty to arrive?”

     “There is not much I can hide from you, is there?”

     “No little brother. To me, you are an open book. Ah, I see Darcy. I’ll speak with you later.”

     Max left his side and Nathan glanced back toward the main entrance and there she stood. Her gown, overlaid by a thin gossamer sheath dotted with diamonds, shimmered with her every movement beneath the glow of the chandeliers. Aphrodite had deigned to come down amongst mankind. Her hair had been skillfully woven with tiny crystals and one lock curled around her neck to caress her shoulder. Desire to follow the length of that lock with his lips hit him with swift precision.

     He noticed her glance about the room and hesitate and was struck with clarity of thought that she had nowhere to go. Her brother, surrounded by his fiancĂ©, her family and Darcy’s family, had his back to her and was completely unaware of her entrance. The sister, Mrs. Hurst stood beside her husband, deep in conversation with one of the other guests, and given the fact she’d basically thrown Miss Bingley from her home, he doubted she would be inclined to approach them.

     He wasted no time and cleaved his way through the crowd. He was about ten feet from her when she finally spied him approaching. For one brief moment he held her gaze and was startled by the stark loneliness in her eyes. She snapped open her gold lace fan and brought it up to her face, creating an effective barrier from his scrutiny. The pomander she always wore swung back and forth with each frantic flick of the wrist.

     Strangely pleased that he caused her some discomfort, he stopped by the refreshment table and filled two punch glasses with lemonade. He liked the thought that she was just as off balance in his presence as he was in hers. Emerald eyes, filled with wariness, watched him approach.

     “Good evening, Miss Bingley,” he said with a polite bow.

     “Good evening, Lord Nathan,” she replied and lowered the fan to give him a slight curtsy.




Book Description: 

Whatever happened to Caroline Bingley after her brother and unrequited love interest married a Bennet sister? Join me in this story of redemptive love and the healing of broken dreams. 

Caroline Bingley, beyond frustrated with her brother, Charles and Mr. Darcy both proposing to the Bennet sisters, dreads their upcoming nuptials. For three years, her sole focus has been on attaining a marriage proposal from one Fitzwilliam Darcy of Pemberley, only to be foiled by a country miss with ‘fine eyes’. Adrift and not sure of her place in life, she meets the mysterious and devastatingly handsome Lord Nathan, who equally vexes and intrigues her. 

Lord Nathan Kerr, third in line to a Dukedom, had a well-earned reputation as a Rake. He cast all that and his noble title aside to become Mr. Darcy’s vicar in Kympton, finding contentment in leading his small flock and doing the Lord’s work. His plan for a quiet, country life is thrown into upheaval when he meets the fiery Miss Bingley. Can he reconcile his rising desire for the spoiled miss with how a vicar’s wife ‘should’ behave?
