In this Regency tale of Robert and Jane, New York Times bestselling author Mary Balogh brings together former lovers who have seen beyond their past mistakes, and are determined to be together in this life and forever.
Caroline's obsession with Gothic novels serves as good training for a lifetime of destroying the undead with her newfound beau in this Regency by Colleen Gleason.
Blood and Prejudice
In fast-paced present-day New York City, Liz Bennett joins Mr. Darcy on his hunt to cure vampirism in New York Times bestselling author Susan Krinard's version of the classic story.
Little to Hex Her
Emma, a witch with a wizard boyfriend, runs a paranormal dating service in modern-day Washington, D.C., in this story from Janet Mullany.
Four romance novellas put a paranormal gloss on elements from Austen's work. Bestseller Balogh (A Precious Jewel) turns in the plodding "Almost Persuaded," wherein Jane Everett and Capt. Robert Mitford realize they're reincarnated soul mates. Gleason makes reference to her Gardella Vampire series with "Northanger Castle," in which pert Caroline Merrill, lover of vampire novels, suspects handsome Mr. Blanchard of being a bloodsucker. Krinard (Bride of the Wolf) sets "Blood and Prejudice" in New York where bookstore staffer Elizabeth Bennet encounters pharmaceutical CEO Charles Bingley and an unusual variety of vampires. Mullany gives us a witchy Emma Woodhouse running a dating service for Washington D.C.'s supernaturals in "Little to Hex Her." Though none show Austen's gift with character, humor, or irony, all but Balogh's are lively, and Mullany's sparkles with genuine wit. \n
