Chapter 2: Particular Attachments, Cover Reveal, and Giveaway — 74 Comments

    • Thanks, Claudine! I’m giving it one last read through before I send you a copy. I’m so worried I’ve missed something, but I’m a worry wart. I’m always stressing 🙂

  1. Love the cover! Love the excerpt! I actually like this Lydia despite her snoring 😊.
    I can’t wait to read more. Please give me notice so I can re read PI first.
    Thanks for sharing Leslie.
    PS I am in awe at your ability to write this while also writing your Ellie and Elizabeth story, looking forward to both 😃

    • Thanks! I admit that I found it really difficult to switch gears, especially in the beginning. Caitlin was brushing up my modern language in the first chapters of Ellie’s story because I couldn’t get out of Regency. It took some time and effort to balance the two.

      Lydia can’t be absolutely perfect. That wouldn’t be any fun 😉 Particular Attachments releases 14 September 🙂 Thank you, Glynis!

  2. I am enjoying this story and will be ordering it from Amazon as soon as it is up. It will be nice to read something different. I am not a fan of Lydia, so it will be fun to see how you handle her, and what she does. Don’t enter me in the giveaway. We are in the process of moving, finally, and I just realized how many things have to be packed or thrown out! Good luck to everyone who enters the contest. I really like the cover and design of this book. My kindle is waiting with anticipation. I have enjoyed all of your books, and I was surprised at how much fun Ellie’s story was, since I don’t normally read the modern variations. Since that one was a mix, it had the best parts of both worlds.

    • I definitely understand about moving! I got rid of so much stuff when we moved to the UK! Lydia was a lot of fun. I hope you enjoy her part of the story. Thanks a bunch, Mari!

  3. I love the cover!
    A huge shoutout to all the authors participating in the Texas fundraising…I think you are all so generous and bought the ones I didn’t already have.

  4. I love all your covers, and this one doesn’t disappoint! I love how they’re unique and memorable, yet still fit the time frame and themes of the stories. Congrats on nearly finishing another book, and I look forward to the ending!

  5. The cover is particularly charming and invites one to open and enter to read this tale. Lovely Indeed! I am an all too consuming fan of P&P fanfiction and this one thus far has been feeding my appetite as I ravenously consume your written words. Looking forward to reading the rest.

  6. Leslie, the cover is delicious! AND of course you already know how much I LOVE this story. Such a beautiful tale. Thanks for sharing before publishing. Jen Red

    • Of course! Suzan Lauder suggested the addition when I was stuck for what to do with the back cover. Had to make a few adjustments to the original because the guy in the painting was quite a dandy 😉

  7. I loved the first book and I cannot wait for the second to be released. The cover is enticing and beautiful.Keep on writing

  8. I’m so looking forward to this book! Loved the excerpt. It’s nice to see a Lydia who is a bit older and wiser (hopefully)!
    Thanks for such a great giveaway!

  9. Beautiful cover, but you always do. I think I’m going to love the Lydia character, she is still spunky, but not so inappropriate! She will be good for the recluse who is Georgianna. I look forward to reading it when it comes out.

  10. I’m definitely intrigued now that you have thrown the ‘reformed’ Lydia into the mix! As for the cover, back and front, gorgeous! Rather ethereal! Can’t wait for it to come out! Thank you for a chance at the generous giveaway!

  11. I really like this “new and improved” Lydia! She still retains her sense of fun in private, but she has learned from her mother’s mistakes and missteps (and her own as well!). And Georgiana seems to need some livening up! 😉

    Thanks for this lovely excerpt, Leslie!! 😀

    Susanne 🙂

  12. Your bio, Leslie, which I’ve read twice before, wears me out! lol And reminds me of my under-achievement!!

    I love the cover – just lovely – the excerpt – the treats for your winner. You are most kind – a bounty of beautiful things.

    Thank you for the opportunity,


    I’ve always wondered about Georgiana.

    • LOL! I wouldn’t put it that way! I never seem to practice flute and piano except when I get a wild hair. I recently updated it for the book and haven’t put the revised version up here. I don’t want to wear people out though!

      I’m so glad you love the cover! Good luck in the giveaway! 🙂

  13. Thanks for the giveaway. I have enjoyed reading all of your other books. I am looking forward to reading Georgiana’s story. I like it when Lydia is given the opportunity to mature and not pay for her mistakes that are in canon. I know she was spoiled and foolish; it is nice to read an improved version.

  14. I’m loving this story so far. I’m glad Lydia and Georgiana are taking centre stage. I hope someone from Canada can be included in the giveaway!

  15. The cover is stunning! I love the bluish/grey color with the rose and the back cover must be Georgianna’s instrument. Thank you for the excerpt. It seems that Lydia has gained some sense (I still have to read it to believe it) and I think Lydia and Georgianna will be supportive friends. The giveaway is fabulous and, yes, i would love to sit in the lavender bath sipping wine and reading or listening to the audiobook of Partiuclar Intentions. I love all of your books!

    • I like to think it’s Nathaniel playing Georgiana’s pianoforte. 🙂 I’m having fun with giveaways lately. I don’t know what made me come up with it, but I thought it would be nice. I love to read in the bath. Thanks, EvaE!

  16. The cover turned out exceptionally well, Leslie. You have great talent. Pretty and soft for G, and the hint of the pianoforte and Nathaniel on the back. Wow. Congratulations!

  17. Love the cover – just gorgeous! Wickham is dead? How did that happen? Did I miss something? Lydia has certainly changed and she didn’t marry Wickham so we have that story being different. Good for Mr. Bennet…love’s more comfortable the second time around…with both feet on the ground…Thanks for sharing
