Book Blurb

Sisters, Sarah and Mia Castle haven’t spoken for three years but they’re about to meet again – at the Jane Austen Festival in Bath. But what was it that drove them apart and can the magic of Jane Austen help bring them back together again?

Mr Darcy Forever is the third book in Victoria Connelly’s Austen addicts’ trilogy, following the success of romantic comedies A Weekend with Mr Darcy and The Perfect Hero.

I'm a huge Jane Austen fan - I've read all except for Mansfield Park. MY favourite is Persuasion followed by Pride and Prejudice.

I'm not a huge fan of the twisted classics (like with Zombies or Sea Monsters) but they're still entertaining.

Those bookmarks are gorgeous. Thanks for the giveaway and what a great way to spread the Jane love :)

What a fun giveaway! thx!!

I love Jane Austen's romances and the strength of her characters. There's such slow, sweet progression and sharp, biting wit. Never grows old... although... it's too bad I can't go back in time and read P&P for the first time all over again!!

I'm happy to be a new follower!

I think that part of the reason why I love Jane Austen's works is because they were some of the only "fun" books we got to read for school. Everything else was filled with torture, war, death, etc. Her books were some of the few that showed we could enjoy reading classic literature.

Thanks for having the giveaway!

Well I love her witty dialogue, the universality of her plots and her shrewd character analysis.

Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

I adore Austen's writing, the basic challenges and emotions her characters go through are still so poignant today.

I haved loved Jane Austen for many years and am now finding many great new authors through re-tellings and mash-ups of her wonderful stories.

I love reading Jane Austen's novels as it deals with many issues face by woman, her witty dialogue and how good will always triumph against evil besides the love stories experience by her heroes and heroines. Thank you for your generous gifts, Maria.

I love how she develops her characters and they lend themselves quite well to movie adaptations (so few books do!).

Although I have yet to read a Jane Austen novel, I own several and have read excerpts which I very much enjoyed. I have seen the film, Bride & Prejudice which I loved.

Thanks :)
