Preview of Coming Attractions: “Leap of Hope” — 18 Comments

  1. I love the premise of the Crossroads Centre and I’m so looking forward to reading the stories that will unfold from it, Shannon. Good luck with the launch in January!

    If I don’t get the chance later in the week, I’d like to wish all of you lovely people at Jane Austen Variations a very Merry Christmas and a peaceful, successful and Happy New Year, with lots more books for all of us JAFF addicts to read. Thanks for all you’ve given us in 2016.

  2. Time travel? Hmm. I have read at least one book with this idea. And if course I have the dvd of Lost in Austen which u really enjoy so I’m sure I will like these. Thanks for the excerpt and Happy Christmas to you and all the others at Austen Variations 🎄

    • Happy Christmas to you too, Glynis! These new books were quite a departure for me with the whole contemporary hero/heroine time-travel thing. But in some ways, not so different. Every story for me comes back to love and the forces that bring people together or keep them apart. It’s all about the romance, regardless of time zone!

  3. Normally, time travel isn’t “my thing”. However, I think I will be making an exception this time because you will be asking some of the questions I have wondered about ever since I became so wrapped up in Regency. The JAFF authors would be writing very short books if there were telephones computers, trains and automobiles, to name a few developments. What would make the a lady’s pulses flutter if her heartthrob wouldn’t turn off the television? But I digress….

    • Haha! I agree, Katherine. TV-watching doesn’t fit into the romantic equation. And I would’t have thought time travel was my thing either until I tried it! It just opened up so many fun possibilities that I couldn’t resist. 🙂

  4. Although I admit that my favorites are well written spin offs of Darcy and Elizabeth, your newest two in January sound like a must read! Looking forward to reading them in January. May all of the JAFF authors and their readers have a joyous and peaceful holiday.

    • Thank you for the good wishes, Meg! And I think I can promise that you will recognize plenty of Darcy/Elizabeth interaction in Leap of Hope.

  5. I have read more than one time travel story in JAFF and then there is the OUTLANDER series…so bring it on. I also can add that I have read your other books, Shannon, and enjoyed them. So I look forward to reading this series. My mind is already wondering if Hope wants to stay in Regency times or if she wants to bring her “Mr. Wonderful” back to modern times…if possible.

    I also want to wish all the authors and readers out there in the JAFF community the best of Christmas or Hanukah holidays. And a very Happy New Year.

      • Absolutely. I have never been anywhere near disappointed with your stories. Your Persuasion of Miss JA remains my wish for this favorite author. Its story has never left my mind even when some of the hundreds I have read begin to blur together.

        • That’s lovely to hear, Sheila! As far as I know, I’m the only one who has dared to write a happy ending for our dear Jane, who SO deserved it.

  6. Well this premise certainly sounds very interesting. I was wondering what you have been up to lately! Now to have two books coming out, I would say you have been very busy! Looking forward to reading how Hope deals with Regency England!

    • Nice that you missed me, Carole! Yes, it has been quite a while since my last release, but life gets busy and then I really wanted to wait until I had both these books ready to go at the same time. It won’t matter which one you read first, but hopefully the first one you read will make you want to read the other one as well. That’s my devious plan. Haha!

  7. This book looks absolutely wonderful,Shannon!! I can’t wait to read it when it comes out!!

    And I love your premise for this series. Isn’t that what many of us desire? A second chance? I look forward to enjoying the fruits of this idea in the months and years to come!!

    Wishing you a joyous Christmastide and a healthy and blessed New Year!
    ~Susanne 🙂

    • I’m glad you’re so enthusiastic about the premise, Susanne! You might be further interested to know that I’ve borrowed your last name for this book, since it’s so similar to Bennet. Hope O’Neil’s Regency identity ends up being Kate Barrett. Teehee!
