THE SWEETEST RUIN BLOG TOUR - READ AN EXCERPT & WIN A COPY



Good morning, Maria Grazia! Thank you for hosting me at your blog, My Jane Austen Book Club. It’s a pleasure to be here to share an excerpt with your readers from my latest JAFF release, “The Sweetest Ruin,” which is a “Pride & Prejudice” modernization that’s set in Las Vegas, Nevada and London, England.

This excerpt takes place after a certain couple has spent some time together getting to know one another, wink, wink. I hope your readers enjoy this sneak peek into “The Sweetest Ruin...”

Amy George




A sound at the door woke her much later, it's irritating buzz so obnoxious Elizabeth could hardly think of it as a doorbell. The buzzing was interspersed with frantic rapping, and sighing, she looked over at her sleeping husband and gently untangled her body from his greedy grasp. She grabbed her blue silk robe, the one Thad had brought her from China because it matched her eyes exactly, and was still tying it when she looked through the peephole.

There stood Thad, his hands on his hips, impatiently glaring at the door. He reached for the buzzer again, and to stop him, Elizabeth opened the door just a little.

"Who died?" she asked.

He huffed. "Nobody. Did you forget?"

"Forget what?"

Rolling his eyes, Thad tried to open the door, but Elizabeth remained firmly behind it. He gave her a quizzical look.

Thad straightened up and his lips smashed into a grim, straight line. "The three of us were supposed to go to Helen and Tommy's wedding, but now we'll barely make the reception."

"I didn't want to go anyway," Elizabeth muttered petulantly. "I don't like Helen."

"That isn't the point. One of the best places to meet guys is at a wedding, and you’re going."

Elizabeth audibly gulped and Thad's eyes narrowed. He inhaled deeply then suddenly barreled into Elizabeth's apartment, nearly knocking her to the floor. His finger came up and he shook it at her.

"You've had sex!"

She looked away. "Um, no I haven't."

"Don't try to deny it! You absolutely reek of it!" Thad started toward her bedroom, but Elizabeth grabbed his arm. Grinning, he tried to shake her off. In a stage whisper he said, "Is he still in there?"

"Thad, I think you need to leave now. He's asleep and I don't want you to wake him."

"Is there a problem, darling?"




Thad froze, his eyes growing wide. "You banged an Englishman last night? How hot is that? He's got a voice like Alan Rickman!"


About the book

When William Darcy suffers a sudden health crisis, he immediately realizes two things: his sister will continue to nag him about his nonexistent social life, and he won’t stand for it. How can he possibly escape Georgiana’s good intentions or the watchful gaze of Aunt Catherine, his assigned babysitter?
Cue a midnight getaway to the tackiest place he can think of. Lounge singers, booze, and women of loose moral fiber -  Las Vegas, here he comes!
Elizabeth Bennet lives a quiet life as a UNLV student and a popular cocktail waitress in one of the nicer casinos in town. Though content to see her best friend, Thad, in a blissfully happy relationship, she has no desire to complicate her own life with what will undoubtedly result in a broken heart. Then she serves a drink to a devastatingly handsome Englishman, and all bets, as they say, are off. This is a modern what-if of Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice. (It is intended for an adult audience)

Buy the book at Amazon or  Amazon UK
Meet Amy George

"Amy George is a middle-aged woman who got rid of her old lady/grown up and has since purchased an unreasonably small car. She refuses to listen to its radio at a reasonable volume, especially when the Beastie Boys or the Violent Femmes are playing. She lives in a small town in the Midwest where the bookstore and yarn shop are neighbors and most food is fried. Her household consists of a dog, a man, a hermit, and stubborn soap scum.  
She has been writing since she was a child and ran the Hyacinth Gardens, a popular but defunct JAFF site."
Fun fact: Amy's birthday is January 30th so this is like a big birthday party.
