Miss Darcy’s Parisian Pin – an excerpt from my new WIP – Jane Odiwe — 36 Comments

  1. I absolutely loved this Jane. It is the perfect continuation of Mrs. Darcy’s Diamonds. I love the relationship, trust, and openness between the Darcys. Georgiana’s thoughts are so like a mature teen’s about their first love. How beautiful! And helping Georgiana socialize in a smaller circle keeps her away from the wolves but circulating to help her make sure of her feelings. Thank you for such a wonderful post to read while I can’t sleep.

    • Thank you, Deborah-that’s so kind! I’m so glad you agree that Georgiana will cope better in a smaller circle.

  2. Just when I was getting fidgety and hoping for more from my favorite author, I found this in my inbox. What a lovely morning it now is, and what a lovely story. This is deliciously romantic and effortlessly drew me in. I do love the way Darcy and Elizabeth relate to each other. They are as real to me as actual flesh and blood people. I can see them as I read, and almost hear their voices; what a delight to waken and find further adventures for the Darcys waiting for me. The beautiful pictures add a wonderful depth and reality to the story. I can’t wait for this one to be,published. Thank you Jane for another glimpse at some of our favorite people.

  3. Love it already! A change of scene – Bath – will do us all very nicely. I’m sure Georgiana won’t be the only young lady to catch the eye of all those bachelors roaming The Royal Crescent. (I always love a jealous Darcy!) Don’t know if that’s in the cards, but I would like to see Mrs. Darcy admired more than even Darcy thinks she will in London. You can’t have it both ways, Fitzwilliam! Ha! I know. I know! You are the expert storyteller and your Darcy and Elizabeth are so believable. Thank you for this new story. Your writing is always wonderful. I’m on board for the journey, Jane..

  4. Such a nice beginning to beautiful day in West Texas! The openness between Darcy and Lizzie is so sweet and Georgie’s hopefulness for a life with Antoine is one that I hope will be fulfilled. Bath will be a great place for her to “come out” so to speak. But will we have Aunt Catherine to contend with? An alliance with a Frenchman?

  5. Hollis, thank you-I can promise a happy ending, but more than that I cannot say. I think you can be sure Lady C will make an appearance somewhere along the line!

  6. Jane, this is absolutely lovely. The relationship between Elizabeth and Darcy is sweet. Elizabeth doesn’t even have to bat her eyelashes to change Darcy’s mind – still besotted! I hope Georgiana’s dreams come true with Antoine comes true. Cannot wait for more!

  7. A delightful beginning! Now I must see if I can hunt up a copy of Mrs. Darcy’s Diamonds; I am nearly done with the latest Lord Peter Wimsey/Harriet Vane mystery, so I shall need something wonderful and Austenish to read after a lovely stop in the 1950’s…. 😉

    Thank you for writing for us; I can’t wait to read more! 🙂

    Susanne 🙂

  8. Susanne, I love Lord Peter Wimsey! I hope you manage to get hold of Mrs Darcy’s Diamonds-I’m planning to publish them together, but this book will hopefully read as a stand-alone novella.

    • Thank you, Kathy-Georgiana’s story started in Mrs Darcy’s Diamonds, and this next novella completes her story!

  9. Beautiful as always and I love the visuals! So perfect. I look forward to the trip to Bath. wonderful beginning. Thanks, jen

  10. Oh, isn’t this fun? I’m looking forward to seeing more of Georgiana and her beau… This is such a delightful start! Thank you for writing it.

  11. I was recently wondering when we would hear about your next book! What a delightful start and what a wonderful way to wake up in the morning. Not only for Georgiana but Elizabeth and Darcy! Thank you!

  12. A wonderful chapter! I am so glad to return to this story and see how Georgiana progresses through life and love. Will she meet someone new or will Antoine forever be her love? (I don’t expect an answer as that would spoil the intrigue… Just wondering out loud.) I look forward to reading more!
