About:

Discover four heroines in historical Austin, TX, as they find love–Jane Austen style. Volume 1 includes:

If I Loved You Less by Gina Welborn, based on Emma
A prideful matchmaker examines her own heart when her protégé falls for the wrong suitor.

Refinements by Anita Mae Draper, based on Sense and Sensibility
A misguided academy graduate spends the summer falling in love . . . twice.

One Word from You by Susanne Dietze, based on Pride and Prejudice
A down-on-her-luck journalist finds the story of her dreams, but her prejudice may cost her true love . . . and her career.

Alarmingly Charming by Debra E. Marvin, based on Northanger Abbey
A timid gothic dime-novel enthusiast tries to solve the mystery of a haunted cemetery and, even more shocking, why two equally charming suitors compete for her attentions.

My thoughts:

Jane Austen fans will adore this collection (I will be reviewing the 2nd volume later this week).

Each story had it’s own plot but there were characters that connected each as well.

All are well-written and it don’t know if I could really pick a favorite. If I had to pick one it would probably be Refinement. But as I said, I enjoyed all of them and think anyone who lost Austen or historical romance will thoroughly enjoys this collection.

Grab your copy at your local bookstore, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or your favorite retailer.
