I am thrilled to be among the bloggers participating in the cover reveal festivities for Joana Starnes’ latest novel, Mr. Bennet’s Dutiful Daughter, which releases today!
Before I share the stunning cover for what promises to be a fantastic variation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, here’s a description of the book to whet your appetite:
When Colonel Fitzwilliam’s disclosures are interrupted by the bearer of distressing news from Longbourn, Miss Elizabeth Bennet is compelled to consider an offer she would have otherwise dismissed out of hand. An offer of marriage from the all-too-proud Mr Darcy.
Yet how is she to live with a husband she hardly knows and does not love? Would she be trapped in a marriage of convenience while events conspire to divide them? Or would love grow as, day by day and hour after hour, she learns to understand the man she married, before she loses his trust and his heart?
And now, the moment you’ve been waiting for, I’m delighted to introduce Mr. Bennet’s Dutiful Daughter, featuring the Portrait of Miss Frances Vinicombe by John Opie, a British landscape and portrait artist famous for his paintings of well-known people, including the author Mary Wollstonecraft. Opie’s works also are featured at the Chawton House Library.
One winner will receive a paperback and two will receive an ebook of Mr. Bennet’s Dutiful Daughter. The winners also will receive assorted Austen-related mini-gifts.
Also, as a special bonus, all Rafflecopter entrants will receive an exclusive excerpt of the book that will not be included in the Amazon sample. These sample excerpts will be emailed to entrants using their Rafflecopter email addresses. (Please let me know if you have any trouble getting Rafflecopter to accept your entry, and I’ll make sure your email address is sent to the tour host.)
