It’s here! My next book, When Charlotte Became Romantic, is now available at Amazon, Smashwords, BN.com, Apple, and Kobo. A paperback version will be available soon. Did you ever wish Charlotte ended up with a nicer guy? This book is for you!
In the original Pride and Prejudice, Elizabeth Bennet’s friend, Charlotte Lucas marries the silly and obsequious clergyman, Mr. Collins. But what if fate—and love—intervened?
Desperate to escape her parents’ constant criticism, Charlotte has accepted a proposal from Mr. Collins despite recognizing his stupid and selfish nature. But when a mysterious man from her past visits Meryton for the Christmas season, he arouses long-buried feelings and causes her to doubt her decision.
James Sinclair’s mistakes cost him a chance with Charlotte three years ago, and he is devastated to find her engaged to another man. Honor demands that he step aside, but his heart will not allow him to leave Meryton. Their mutual attraction deepens; however, breaking an engagement is not a simple matter and scandal looms. If they are to be happy, Charlotte and James must contend with her parents’ opposition, Lady Catherine’s nastiness, and dangerous figures from James’s past.
Charlotte had forsworn romance years ago; is it possible for her to become romantic again?

Meredith at Austenesque Reviews has written a terrific 4.5 Star Review of Darcy in Hollywood! She says,
“Darcy in Hollywood is a diverting and refreshingly original Pride and Prejudice tale that I am sure many readers will enjoy. I greatly admire the inventive premise, insightful character development, and inspiring themes Ms. Kincaid employed in this story. I sincerely hope she will pen another modern-day adaptation of Pride and Prejudice soon!

Margie has given a 4.5 Star Review to Darcy in Hollywood, writing: “I love Austen Adaptions and I loved this one by Victoria Kincaid, I LOVE HER!! Darcy was an absolute arrogant arse and Lizzie was our lovable, laughable Lizzie. Darcy in Hollywood is a fun, engaging and unpredictable at times read! With familiar plot lines and a few twist and turns, this modernization was completely fulfilling to this Austenite! I enjoyed it so much! I can’t wait to see what else Victoria has up her sleeve!!”

From Pemberley to Milton, a Jane Austen blog, has given President Darcy a five-star review! Rita writes,
“I don’t usually love modernizations but the investment Victoria Kincaid made in developing the characters personalities and their feelings was so well done that she made me love this one. I loved this Pemberley version and everything that happened in it, and in President Darcy I read the most unexpected proposal I have ever seen in JAFF and kind of surprised myself for loving it!
President Darcy remains until this moment one of my favorite modernizations of JAFF, if not my favorite. I highly recommend it to all those who love a good story with a powerful romance story able to keep readers entertained until the very end.”

My new modern Pride & Prejudice variation, Darcy in Hollywood, is now available on Amazon!
Here is the blurb:
A modern Pride and Prejudice variation.
Rich and arrogant movie star, William Darcy, was a Hollywood heartthrob until a scandalous incident derailed his career. Now he can only hope that Tom Bennet’s prestigious but low budget indie film will restore his reputation. However, on the first day of filming, he nearly hits Bennet’s daughter, Elizabeth, with his Ferrari, and life will never be the same. Okay, she’s a little sarcastic, but he’s certain she’s concealing a massive crush on him—and it’s growing harder to fight his own attraction….
Elizabeth Bennet has a lot on her plate. She’s applying to medical school and running the studio’s charity project—while hoping her family won’t embarrass her too much. Being Darcy’s on-set personal assistant is infuriating; he’s rude, proud, and difficult. If there’s one thing she dislikes, it’s people who only think about themselves. But then Elizabeth discovers Darcy has been doing a lot of thinking about her.
She might be willing to concede a mutual attraction, but events are conspiring against them and Darcy subject to constant public scrutiny. Do Darcy and Elizabeth have any hope of achieving Hollywood’s elusive happy ending?
