Did you ever wonder about the truth behind Napoleonic War era spies? I discuss that in my post at Austenesque Reviews. There’s also an excerpt from The Unforgettable Mr. Darcy and a Double Giveaway — ebook/paperback of The Unforgettable Mr. Darcy and an audiobook of Mr. Darcy to the Rescue!
I’m a guest today at Babblings of a Bookworm where I discuss Gravelines, an official City of Smugglers Napoleon set up on the French coast to encourage English smugglers near the end of the Napoleonic Wars. The place plays a crucial role in my new book, The Unforgettable Mr. Darcy. You can also sign up for an international giveaway and read an excerpt from the novel!
My new book, The Unforgettable Mr. Darcy, is now available on Amazon! The Blurb is below:
A Pride and Prejudice Variation
Mr. Darcy arrives at Longbourn, intending to correct the mistakes he made during his disastrous proposal in Hunsford. To his horror, he learns that Elizabeth Bennet was killed in a ship’s explosion off the coast of France—in an apparent act of sabotage. Deep in despair, he travels in disguise to wartime France to seek out the spy responsible for her death.
But a surprise awaits Darcy in the French town of Saint-Malo: Elizabeth is alive!
Recovering from a blow to the head, Elizabeth has no memory of her previous life, and a series of mistakes lead her to believe that Darcy is her husband. However, they have even bigger problems. As they travel through a hostile country, the saboteur mobilizes Napoleon’s network of spies to capture them and prevent them from returning home. Elizabeth slowly regains her memories, but they often leave her more confused.
Darcy will do anything to help Elizabeth reach England safely, but what will she think of him when she learns the truth of their relationship?
Ceri is hosting me at Babblings of a Bookworm. I discuss why Mr. Collins is such a great character and so much fun to write. There’s also an excerpt from Mr. Darcy to the Rescue and a Giveaway of an audiobook copy!
The first blogger review of the Mr. Darcy to the Rescue audiobook! Serena writes,
“Lysy is a wonderful narrator; she pulls her listeners into the story as she takes on the roles of Lady Catherine, Mr. Darcy, Mr. Collins, and Elizabeth. Her inflections and intonations, effectively capture the mood of each scene and the emotions of Kincaid’s characters.
I loved revisiting Kincaid’s version of an in-love Darcy and an Elizabeth caught up in the horrifying reality of her decision to marry Mr. Collins. Mr. Darcy to the Rescue by Victoria Kincaid, narrated by Emma Lysy, is just delightful on audio.”
