Travels in August: The Darcys in New Orleans — 8 Comments

    • Thanks, Suzanne; I’m so pleased! I thought that as Miss Austen’s original version of Pride and Prejudice (First Impressions) was an epistolary novel, the exchange of letters would be keeping in her spirit.

      Is it just me or does Capt. Patterson look a great deal like Colin Firth?

  1. I loved the sequel, Colette. You did a wonderful job weaving the historical background into a gripping paranormal JAFF story.

    I am sad that this is your last Austen-inspired book, but I wish you well in your future writing endeavors!!

    • I am so pleased you enjoyed it! All three of my Austenesque novels were “assigned” to me by my daughter, so unless she insists on another…
      One of my next projects will have Emily Brontë rolling in her grave: A werewolf parody of Wuthering Heights with Heathcliff howling on the moors! 😉

  2. I very recently read both books and did so enjoy them. (I posted my own reviews.) One reason I am not an author is I realize how much time goes into research and I would rather be reading someone’s else’s book. Wuthering Heights…I will have to look for that publication. That is a dark story to begin with so adding werewolves should be intriguing.

    While reading Dearest, Bloodiest Elizabeth the song, The Battle of New Orleans, kept running through my head. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thanks so much, Sheila! I am thrilled that you enjoyed The Confession of Mr. Darcy, Vampire novels, and I so appreciate the reviews! So many readers have no idea how important positive (4 or 5) reviews are on Amazon, and we authors appreciate your taking the time to do so.

      As for time… If you note that thick blue book among my resources, my husband had originally checked it out of the university library because it cost almost $40! After he had to renew it 6 or 7 times, he finally just gave me my own copy for my birthday!

      • What a dear and thoughtful man. I had posted a review of Pulse and Prejudice on Amazon also. But due to some mix up with my son-in-law using my computer they refused to accept my review there. I did post it on Goodreads…5 stars
