How ’bout a Modern Regency Romance with a dose of Jane Austen too?
Authors: Laura Briggs and Sarah Burgess
Price: 99 Cents
Pert, overly-confidant Olivia Darcy has it all: looks, a lively personality, a successful career as a love columnist, and a connection to Jane Austen’s greatest love story. Being the descendant of Lizzie and Darcy, however, hasn’t guaranteed her a happy ending in love-in fact, Miss Darcy seems cursed by disaster and destined for a romantically-lonely life.
But when a letter from a girl known as “Cottingley” pits Miss Darcy against Britain’s most notorious bachelor, the seemingly dark and brooding Christopher Stanley, something’s bound to change…as contentious banter, willful misunderstandings, and assumed perfections begin to unravel.
In the spirit of Shakespeare’s Benedict and Beatrice (definitely not Romeo and Juliet) emerges a modern take on Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. With a twist of love-hate romance, a dash of mild public scandal, and more than a few Jane Austen references, authors Briggs and Burgess draw on the world of Austen for a lightly-comic tale of not-so opposites, with characters whose romantic barbs are a tongue-in-cheek tribute to Jane herself.
4 out of 5 stars~”The authors paint the very public face of Livvy and Christopher and then subtly fill us in on their more private yearnings and weaknesses that they have kept hidden…it has an overarching tone that immediately puts one in mind of the Regency period…delightfully sweet and poignant…”~JV, The Romance Reviews
4.5 out of 5 stars~”…modern and fun, with nice little callbacks to Pride and Prejudice…just enough reference to Austen to make it fun without being overbearing.”~Jessica Melendez, Indie Jane
