Jane Austen Giveaway Hop

The Jane Austen Giveaway Hop featuring Jane Austen-inspired books has begun. Hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writervvb32reads, this hop runs from now until midnight on October 24th. I love Jane Austen's novels and marvel at how the author created such classic stories featuring women before their times. Who doesn't love Elizabeth Bennett? Or the Dashwood sisters from Sense and Sensibility? I've always been partial to Anne Elliot from Persuasion myself. 

Before I continue on with my love of all things-Jane, let's tell everyone what we're giving away. We are offering one winner a paperback copy of Austentatious. Our giveaway is open to residents of the US.

Austentatious by Alyssa Goodnight
Contemporary romance*Paperback, 320 pages*Published February 1st 2012 by Kensington (first published January 31st 2012)

In this quirky, sexy novel set against the lively, music-filled backdrop of Austin, Texas, a young woman learns that romance can wreak havoc with even the best laid plans. . .

It started innocently enough. While browsing in one of Austin's funky little shops, Nicola James is intrigued by a blank vintage journal she finds hidden among a set of Jane Austen novels. Even though Nic is a straight-laced engineer, she's still a sucker for anything Austen-esque. But her enthusiasm quickly turns to disbelief once she starts writing in the journal--because somehow, it's writing her back. . .

Miss Nicola James will be sensible and indulge in a little romance. Those twelve tiny words hit Nic like a thunderbolt, as if her diary was channeling Austen herself! Itching for a bit of excitement, Nic decides to follow her "Fairy Jane's" advice. The result: a red-hot romance with a sexy Scottish musician who charms his way into Nic's heart in about five seconds flat.

Sean MacInnes is warm, funny, and happens to think Nic is the most desirable woman he's ever met. But a guy like Sean doesn't exactly fit into her Life Plan. With no one but Fairy Jane to guide her, Nic must choose between the life she thought she wanted--and the kind of happy ending she never saw coming. . .
