Lydia’s ball Part 3 and Particular Intentions giveaway winners! — 41 Comments

  1. I tried to comment on part 2 but was on my tablet and for some reason it won’t let me post on some sites???”. Anyway I have really enjoyed this version of the ball. Lydia is as stupid and selfish as always and I really like this Mr Bennet I’m so glad he controlled her and Mrs Bennet. I know what you mean about not being able to write a whole book from Lydia’s perspective though. Far too taxing unless you are like that yourself. Thanks Leslie 😊

    • For some reason, a few people had a difficult time commenting on part 2. I’m sorry about that! Yeah, I changed to Mr. Bennet’s perspective for the shopping expedition. That posts on Sept. 3 at Babblings of a Bookworm. Thanks, Glynis!

  2. Now I really want to start reading this book! I just got it the other day, but things have been hectic. If Mr. Bennet is making Lydia and her mother behave, it will be a change for the better. I will make sure I start this today. Thanks for the reminder!

  3. Thanks Leslie for this next part of the ball. Yay, Mr. Bennet. Well done, she and her mother need a governess if that is their way to have fun at a ball. Oh, Lydia, you poor little fool! To admit to her father the unladylike behavior she had done.

    • At that point, he had to know she’d done it before. He’s going to put the brakes on a great deal of her behavior. Particular Intentions would’ve been way too long if I’d included all of this too, but it was fun to do on the side. Thanks, Patty!

  4. Longbourne will be a difficult place to live in for quite some time, I’m afraid. Between Lydia’s tantrums and her mother’s wailing, I am certain that her sisters will take a lot of ling walks.

    These were such fun to read – thank you!

    • LOL! Jane will be in London with Lady Fitzwilliam, but you never know about Mary and Kitty. They might become much closer as a result. Thanks, June!

    • Oh, the governess is mentioned in the last chapter of Particular Intentions. Teehee! It’s rather fun. Thanks, Hollis!

  5. I really want to read the book now; Lydia definitely needs firm discipline although before now would have been ideal. 😉

    Thank you so much!!

    I’m saving my digital pennies to purchase a Kindle copy of Particular Intentions and can’t wait!!

    Susanne 🙂

    • Well, there’s not too much of Lydia in the book. I just wrote this for fun and because I had very little I cut from the book itself. I’m glad you’re enjoying it. Thanks, Susanne!

  6. [A chuckle] well, I’m not a devil-may-care young man any more, but your Lydia certainly would have tempted me back when I was! Very well done!

  7. Get thee to a nunnery, Lydia – preferably one with a vow of silence. I always thought locking Lydia up would be a good idea – until about age 25. Well done excerpt. Thank you.

  8. Oh Lydia! What are we to do with you? Wonderful excerpt! Loving this Mr Bennet.

    Thank you for the giveaway. I am very excited about winning the bracelet! Woohoo!

    • I thought they would be fun. I had several possibilities, but this seemed the ones most likely to get a giggle or two. Thanks, TLeighF!

  9. Congratulations to all and that was so much fun! Lydia is worse than a flirt! What brazen behaviour and disrespect to her father…even if he was indolent before he put his foot down. Can’t wait to read this!

  10. This is certainly a Mr Bannet to be reckoned with!!!
    Can’t believe how brazen Lydia was in her behaviour with the Captain…..she was leaving little to the imagination!!
    Thanks to all concerned for such a window into the goings on at the ball.

    • Mr. Bennet had his eyes opened a bit before and now he knows what he’s really dealing with when it comes to Lydia. He’s making an effort at least. Thanks, Mary!
