The Secrets of Pemberley by Rose Fairbanks - Blog Tour - Guest Post and Giveaway

Book Cover: The Secrets of Pemberley by Rose Fairbanks
I'm pleased to be welcoming Rose Fairbanks back to the blog today with the tour of her latest book, a Pride & Prejudice vagary called The Secrets of Pemberley. This has a very interesting sounding blurb, which I'll share with you in just a moment. Rose is here today with a guest post of a video diary for Elizabeth, and there's a giveaway opportunity as well. Read on for more details...

Book Description

To the world, Fitzwilliam Darcy has it all. He’s the young master to one of the kingdom’s oldest and wealthiest Norman families. Through his mother, he is related to a powerful line of earls. Beneath the perfect façade lies the truth: he’s the product of his mother’s affair and the heir George Darcy never wanted.

At twenty-eight, Darcy has fought hard to put to rest the pains of the past and earn his place in Society. But can he resist the allure of ending his loneliness with the unsuitable woman who has tugged at his heartstrings? Will he tell her his secret and if he does, will she keep it? Or will someone else from the past destroy everything Darcy has worked for?

Prepare for another page-gripping read from Rose Fairbanks as she unfolds a Darcy and Elizabeth story unlike you have ever read before. For the first time ever, Ms. Fairbanks is offering a new novel release in Kindle Unlimited. The Secrets of Pemberley is available to buy now!

Thanks so much for hosting me, Ceri! The Secrets of Pemberley is told entirely from Mr. Darcy’s perspective. In the book, Elizabeth’s diary becomes important, and as a long-time fan of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, I decided to do video entries for each of diary entry I’ll be sharing on the blog tour. I hope you enjoy as we get a bit of insight on what Elizabeth Bennet felt after dancing with Darcy at a ball in London.

  1. Rose,
    Must admit that I've never read a JAFF story with this premise! How inventive!!

    I can just imagine Darcy looking over his shoulder on a continuous basis,waiting for some nefarious person to blackmail him with the events surrounding his true parentage.

    Looking forward to reading this story. Wishing you the best of luck with it!!
    Cheers,Ceri,for hosting!

    1. Thanks for commenting! Darcy definitely has a tortured and rough time of it!

    2. Thanks for dropping by Mary!

  2. Thanks to Ceri for hosting, and thanks to our author Rose for this excerpt. What a creative way to present it to us. Blessings on the launch and success of this work. I look forward to reading it.

    1. Thanks for stopping by! It was fun doing the videos but I admit this entry really pulled at me. My tears are real!

    2. So glad you enjoyed the post :)

  3. The premise of the story is intriguing and I love the way you've presented the excerpt!

    1. Thanks! I just wanted to do things a bit differently this time.

    2. It's a premise I haven't seen done before. It's always exciting to find a new starting point in JAFF, as some of them have been done many times.

  4. What an interesting premise and new way to promote the blog tour. Congrats on the new release. Looking forward to reading it.

    1. Thanks! It took a bit more planning to get a quiet house than the usual guest post so I'm not promising to follow this pattern again but it was fun this time around!

    2. I hope you enjoy the story when you read it!

  5. Love, just love the videos! What an interesting concept of your story. Thank you for the chance in the giveaway.

  6. what an interesting perspective


  7. I read this as a WIP and then again when it was published. Loved it. It is my favorite of her books.

  8. Rose, maybe you should consider wearing an appropriate Regency era attire and make-up/hairdo when filming the video diary entries to make it authentic to the time period in which your novel takes place. This is just a suggestion.
