Mr Darcy to the Rescue by Victoria Kincaid Audio - Guest Post and Giveaway

Today I'm welcoming Victoria Kincaid back to the blog. She has made Mr Darcy to the Rescue available on audio and has come here with an excerpt of the story and a giveaway of an audio version for one of  you. I'll share the blurb and then hand over to Victoria.

Book Description

Book Cover: Mr Darcy to the Rescue by Victoria Kincaid - Audio
When the irritating Mr. Collins proposes marriage, Elizabeth Bennet is prepared to refuse him, but then she learns that her father is ill. If Mr. Bennet dies, Collins will inherit Longbourn and her family will have nowhere to go. Elizabeth accepts the proposal, telling herself she can be content as long as her family is secure. If only she weren’t dreading the approaching wedding day… Ever since leaving Hertfordshire, Mr. Darcy has been trying to forget his inconvenient attraction to Elizabeth. News of her betrothal forces him to realize how devastating it would be to lose her. He arrives at Longbourn intending to prevent the marriage, but discovers Elizabeth’s real opinion about his character. Then Darcy recognizes his true dilemma… How can he rescue her when she doesn’t want him to?

The Son of a Preacher Man by Karen M Cox - Guest Post and Giveaway

Book Cover: Son of a Preacher Man by Karen M Cox
Today I'm happy to be welcoming Karen M Cox to the blog. Long time visitors to my blog might remember that I've read quite a few of Karen's works. I love how she moves the characters and themes from Austen's books to different places and times. Her books are usually not set in the modern day, but in the 20th Century. I've read and enjoyed depression-era 1932, and the follow up novella, The Journey Home, plus 1980s spy novel Undeceived, Find Wonder in All Things, which takes Persuasion to the 1990s, and visited Emma Woodhouse back to the 1970s in I Could Write a Book. Karen has even taken on Northanger Abbey, in a short story in the Sunkissed: Effusions of Summer anthology, which is responsible for one of the longest quotes I have ever put on my blog!

I'll now hand over to Karen for her to tell us a little more about her latest story, Son of a Preacher Man, which I hope to read later this month.

Plans for July 2018

Hello to all of you. Is it hot in your neck of the woods? We've had a bit of a heatwave here in the UK. June was a disastrous month for my reading. Nearly everything I read was on audio, so I listened either while driving, taking a lunchtime walk or while doing chores. The building work we've been having done is coming towards the end, which is obviously a good thing, but it's taken up quite a bit of time and energy. There's still lots of sorting out to be done, and some decorating, along with some more building work, sigh! I am hoping to carve out some reading time this month. I have a huuuuge backlog. I  also have some blog visitors, who I hope you will drop by for. Let me tell you what I have planned.

Book cover: Son of a Preacher Man by Karen M Cox
Firstly, I'll be welcoming Karen M Cox back to the blog. Karen has just released a book which is inspired by Pride & Prejudice rather than an updated version of it. So although there will be themes and characters which have come from P&P, Son of a Preacher Man doesn't follow the same line.

Book cover: The Darcy Legacy by Joana Starnes
The blog tour for Joana Starnes' new book, The Darcy Legacy will be stopping by for my review. This is a Pride & Prejudice variation with quite a mysterious-sounding blurb. I'm not entirely sure what to expect except that Mrs Bennet has died, leaving Mr Bennet to try and raise his family, and that there are some secrets in the Darcy family.

Book cover: Proof of Love by Brenda Webb
Brenda Webb will be visiting with her new story, Proof of Love, which is Pride & Prejudice-inspired. This varies from canon, with Darcy and Elizabeth meeting sooner.

Book cover: Mr Darcy to the Rescue by Victoria Kincaid
Victoria Kincaid is making Mr Darcy to the Rescue available on audio book, and she'll be popping in to visit us. I've read this in ebook format, and very much enjoyed it.

So, what do you have lined up this month? Are there any books that you look forward to reading, or anything good that you'd like to recommend? Let us know in the comments.
