It is always one part sad and one part a tremendous relief to complete a book release virtual book tour. Writing all those blogs and answering the interview questions is fun but hard work that consumes time and takes the author away from writing new material. Visiting the blog sites on posting day is fabulous since I LOVE chatting with those who are brave enough to comment. That really is the best part. So this week I am very happy that my last two guest blogs for In the Arms of Mr. Darcy fall on days when I am not on a working stretch so I can be available to check in. Yeah!
First up is today at Historical Hussies. I was asked to talk about Georgiana and Elizabeth’s formal presentation to His Royal Highness the Prince Regent at the Court of St. James. Whew! Just writing that is a chore. Can you imagine how rough it was for Georgiana and Lizzy? Well, read my blog and you will get an idea! Plus, there is an excerpt AND a giveaway. So come on over!
Tomorrow, Thursday the 28th, I will be wrapping it up at Rundpinne. I was requested to explore what I found most fascinating about the Regency. Any ideas? If you are curious, and I hope you are, then pop over and read about this exciting time in history and what I fell in love with. There will be giveaways!!
This week I also have some reviews to share. Another 4-Star write up for In The Arms of Mr. Darcy by Marcie at To Read or Not To Read. Thanks Marcie! It isn’t a long review so I am going to post it here, but feel free to visit the website and comment if you wish. It is always nice to thank reviewers for taking the time to honestly share their thoughts with potential readers.
Sharon Lathan has written several books that continue one of the most romantic and beloved stories of all time, Pride and Prejudice. The first book, Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy, takes place shortly after the wedding. Sharon takes us behind closed doors (wink, wink, nod, nod) to give us a more personal look into the Darcy’s lives.
In the Arms of Mr. Darcy is the fourth book in Sharon Lathan’s Darcy Saga. This book picks up right where the third book left off, Darcy and Elizabeth have their precious baby boy, Alexander. Sharon Lathan takes us on a journey through the lives of the characters we love so much. In this book we get to experience Elizabeth and Darcy’s first baby and all the trials that come with it. She keeps the romance between Darcy and Elizabeth sizzling hot while dealing with many realistic situations that new parents often face. My absolute favorite part of this book is the side stories with Georgina, Kitty, and Col. Fitzwilliam. I loved learning more about their characters and the direction that Sharon Lathan takes them in. I hope Sharon writes more about them in the future. I also love Dr. Darcy. He is one of my favorite characters in this series. I wish I had an uncle like him. He is a great addition to the cast of characters. Sharon Lathan has done a great job with this series. I’ve read all four books and I have not been disappointed. Also in the back of my book was a preview to the upcoming novel, A Darcy Christmas, which looks very good. Keep a look out for it!
On another note pertaining to reviews, Kelli Crowe is continuing to write wonderful reviews for my novels. This one posted last week and is for My Dearest Mr. Darcy. I am thrilled to share Kelli’s superb review with all of you.
