Wonderful Win: What Would Jane Austen Do?

What Would Jane Austen Do? by Laurie Brown

Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca

I won this book from Book Maniac at A Blog of Books. There are some great giveaways going on over there right now - and there are always good reviews - so if you haven't checked out this blog yet, now's the time!

About the Book:

Surely Jane Austen would know how to handle such a rake...

From the author of Hundreds of Years to Reform a Rake, a new time travel romance featuring a modern day career woman swept back in time to Regency England, where she thwarts a Napoleonic spy, chats with Jane Austen, and falls in love with a notorious rake.

Eleanor is a costume designer in England for the Jane Austen festival, where her room at the inn is haunted. In the middle of the night she encounters two ghost sisters whose brother was killed in a duel over 200 years ago. They persuade her to travel back in time with them to prevent the duel. Eleanor is swept into a country house party, presided over by the charming Lord Shermont, where she encounters and befriends Jane Austen. But there's much more to Lord Shermont than the ghosts knew, and as Eleanor dances and flirts with him, she begins to lose her heart. (from the publisher)

About the author: Laurie Brown teaches writing classes at the college level, has presented seminars at conferences all over the country, and has three published romance novels. She has been a Golden Heart finalist twice and has received the Service Award from the Chicago-North Chapter of RWA. She resides in Illinois.

I look forward to the review! I laugh every time I see this book (and I'm jealous because I've missed out on a few giveaways)!

Congrats on your win, I & reviewed this one, I did enjoy it also. The silly pic of the guy on the cover really doesn't do it justice. Not that is was some awesome literary novel, but sometimes the hunks on the covers seem to degrade the words on the inside. Enjoy the read!
