First Book Review & Giveaway!

Hello and Welcome to Romance Me! Here on the corner of HAPPILY and EVER AFTER, you'll find information on new releases, book reviews, interviews and maybe a little magic.

To start things off, I'll be reviewing The Road to Pemberley: An Anthology of New Pride and Prejudice Stories edited by Marsha Altman, and one lucky commenter will win a copy of the book.

According to, The Road to Pemberley is "A Romantic, Engaging and Witty Collection of New Short Stories that Feature Jane Austen's Most Beloved Characters.

Including over a dozen stories from both emerging and established Regency romance authors, this new anthology celebrates Jane Austen with a series of brilliant adaptations. Austen’s masterpiece has spawned an entire genre of literature, and The Road to Pemberley brings together the best of the best from published and new writers alike to create a cornucopia of intrigues starring familiar characters from Pride and Prejudice. England during the Regency Era, with its country estates, horse-drawn carriages, and formal balls, continues to captivate modern readers and The Road to Pemberley brings this fabled world to life in all its glory. Each author shows us another side of the Pride and Prejudice story as it would have continued, from Darcy and Elizabeth's first year at Pemberley to the personal tales of characters like George Wickham, Colonel Fitzwilliam, and Darcy's personal valet. Join a cast of familiar and unfamiliar faces navigating a host of new social quandaries, old personal dilemmas, and exciting adventures."

Since Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice is my "Go To" book when I'm between not-read-before-books, not to mention the fact that I own two movie versions of the story (the mini-series with Colin Firth *sigh* and Jennifer Ehle and also the Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen version), I'm excited at the prospect of reading The Road To Pemberley and interviewing author Marsh Altman.

I don't have a target date yet for the interview or the book review, so stay tuned!
