The Passions of Dr. Darcy giveaway!

 

DrDarcyARC

 

The day before Christmas I received a wonderful surprise delivered to my door: 5 advanced reader copies of The Passions of Dr. Darcy. Whoot! I was not expecting them until January, so having that box dropped on my stoop – along with all the ordered gifts I was expecting – was one of my best Christmas presents! Due to the holidays and my big December giveaway event, I decided with some difficulty to dampen my giddy delight and wait a bit to share the joy with all of you. Now I can no longer contain myself!

I am SO happy with this novel! Naturally the final cover will have the pretty “foiling” on the title section which will give it depth and a nice sheen. Still, it is fairly marvelous as is, and looks super cool on its stand next to my other novels. And no matter how many times I read the manuscript on my computer, it always feels special to read the story in a gorgeous bound book!

The official release date for The Passions of Dr. Darcy – according to Amazon – is April 2, 2013. Right around the corner! Yet still almost 3 months away. How would YOU like a chance to read my latest novel a bit early? I do have extra copies of my ARCs lying around, after all…

So, I will be giving away one copy every 2 weeks for the next 6 weeks. That is 3 copies of the advanced reader version of The Passions of Dr. Darcy to 3 lucky winners! Just use the Rafflecopter form below, choosing as many options as you wish – more options completed, more points toward winning! On January 29, and February 12, and then on February 26 I will select a name (using Rafflecopter and random.org), sending the ARC to the winner for her/his reading pleasure. What a deal!

I am VERY excited to share the epic tale of George Darcy. I wish I could speed the final publication along! Alas, we all must wait…. expect for reviewers and 3 lucky winners from my blog!

Blurb from Amazon~~

 

George Darcy is the second son of a wealthy landowner in Georgian Era England and, at 22, is considered to be a brilliant, rising star in England’s field of medicine. However, Dr. Darcy refuses the easy, comfortable pathway and enlists as a physician with the British East India Company, embarking on a personal quest where he strives to change the face of medicine while yearning to fill the void left within his soul at the death of his twin. His search for family, enduring love, and lost companionship is a quest not wholly realized until his return to England and Pemberley after thirty years of amazing adventures. It is then that a new generation of family and friends will heal the physician, and to his greatest surprise, where the true love of his life awaits.

Thanks for the support! And good luck in the giveaway!

    Congratulations, congratulations, CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m so happy for you..and me!! I love the Darcy Saga!!! Dr. Darcy is so elegant, just like his nephew! Thanks for a chance to win.

    ps. your “pin this image” in the rafflecopter isn’t working, but anyone could pin the image from this post.

    1. Sharon Lathan

      Thanks June!!! I love such enthusiasm!

      Thanks for the notice of the bad link for Pinterest. Totally my fault for not getting the correct one attached! I have fixed it, and tested it myself only my Pinterest board, so it is working now.

      Good luck in the giveaway. :-)

  3. Vesper

    Congratulations on the book . This is the first time I have come across George Darcy so I am interested in everything

    1. Sharon Lathan

      Oh Vesper, you are in for a treat! I am a tad prejudice, I’ll admit, but everyone agrees with me that George is wonderful. He appears first in my second book – Loving Mr. Darcy – and is present throughout. This novel was a joy as I was given the opportunity to travel back in time, so to speak, and get to know the young Dr. Darcy. Traveling with him, living his life as he matures into the man my readers know and love was a fabulous experience. I am praying readers of this novel, whether familiar with the older George or not, will feel as strongly as I do about this remarkable man.

      Good luck in the contest!

  4. Sam @ The Little Munchkin Reader

    I’m SO excited! Of course, you already know this Sharon as I keep asking questions about characters. Maybe I’ll win and maybe I won’t, but either way, I’ll be getting this book THIS YEAR! April at the latest.

    PS. I’m so looking forward to seeing the relationship between Jharna and George!

  5. Sharon Lathan

    Thanks Sam!

    I wish the Rafflecopter form was set up to display the answers to survey questions. Minor flaw there, if you ask me. Anyway, so far the relationship between George and Jharna, how it developed, why he chose to address his journal to her, and how she died are big interests. Other questions are why he wears Indian clothes, were there other women in his past, and what made him decide to go to India in the first place. All terrific and ALL answered in depth in this novel!

    Most of George’s adventures are recounted, but of course in order to write of everything I would have ended up with a dozen novels! I hit the highlights. :-)

    Keep the comments and thoughts coming. I love sharing the Dr. Darcy love.

  6. Emily Staggs

    I absolutely can’t wait to read your new book. I love your Darcy Saga and all of the characters that you have developed but Dr. George Darcy is my favorite, hands down!! I am a Nurse Practitioner and I have always loved all the medical info you manage to work into your books, so I am looking forward to hearing more about Dr. Darcy’s adventures in medicine, among other things!! Again, I can’t wait and congrats on what I’m sure will be another great book for you.

    1. Sharon Lathan

      Thank you, Emily. I do get into the medicine quite a bit, but of course had to resist getting too technical and icky. LOL! Plus, it was important to balance that with the history of India and George’s other exploits. He is a busy fellow!

      Good luck in the giveaway!

  7. Regan Walker

    Congratulations on the book release. It sounds so good and I like Dr. Darcy. It will be nice to learn more about him. I’m anxious to read this one. Thank you for the giveaway opportunity and thank you for keeping us in good books about my favorite hero and heroine and their interesting relatives and friends.

  15. Sophia Rose

    While I adore Jane Austen’s characters from the original story. For this series, meeting Darcy’s Uncle and getting to know your own created character was/is a highlight. I am so glad his book is almost available and thrilled for this giveaway opportunity.

  16. Stephanie L

    Soooo excited!! Love love Dr. George. I’ve been breathlessly waiting for this book for MONTHS (but you know that already LOL)!!! Throwing my name in the hat for the giveaway. Thank you!! *happy dance* I just started college but this is one of the two books I’m allowing to intrude on my studies… =D

    I so cannot wait to read this! I want to see what practicing medicine was like for him in that time and place, and how he fell in love, and maybe catch a glimpse of Fitzwilliam as a youngster.
