Meet-Not-So-Cute — 10 Comments

  1. Oh myyy! That was some meeting! I have a confession to make, Melanie. I haven’t actually read Sway yet, though it is part of the mountain that I call my TBR list (took advantage of the sale price last year, thank you). I love it when writers take characters previously thought of as unsympathetic and give them their own stories. This one looks to be a winner. Thanks for sharing with us.

  2. Ooh. I do hope she does throw him out. I’m afraid like Anji I also have Sway on my TBR pile and after reading this excerpt looks like I’ll have another to add to it. Oh dear. So many lovely books and not enough hours in the day! Thanks for sharing.

  3. I loved Sway. Persuasion is my favorite Austen but you don’t find as many retellings or sequels as Pride and Prejudice. I can’t wait for this novella and hope it’ll be released soon. Thank you

  4. Never having cared for meet-cutes, while I read this excerpt, it brought to mind the ball scene in Lost in Austen when Amanda knees Mr Collins in his most sensitive spot, and Caroline observes that they seem to have laid in some additional entertainments. I had hoped perhaps that the heroine here would act likewise. LOL! Nice to see a JAFF that is *not* based on P&P! Many thanks for sharing, and wishing you every success.

  5. I did read and enjoyed SWAY and so look forward to reading this book. Thanks for sharing the excerpt. I know some men who deserve to be kneed…and this man seems headed for that distinction.

  6. Definitely a “meet-not-so-cute”!! I really didn’t like Beth in Sway, so I’m a bit wary of this new book, but you’re so talented that I’m sure it’ll be quite the ride! 😉

    Thanks, Melanie, for sharing this vignette with us!

    Susanne 🙂

  7. What an obnoxious twit! He does need an extra hard knee placed just right. Where’s the Security when you need them fast?

  8. I loved ‘Sway’ and I’m looking forward to this novella on Beth! I was thinking she just might do a karate flip on Tony and he wouldn’t know what hit him! LOL!

  9. I’m not a fan of Elizabeth Elliot, but this gentleman could be perfect for her. Great idea for a story, Melanie. Now get the popcorn ready, and let the circus begin!
