Giveaway - The Other Mr. Darcy

I love what I call "Jane Austen Spinoff Novels".  These are books that are sequels, prequels and otherwise speculations on the characters in Jane Austen stories.  Here's another opportunity to win a copy of a spinoff, The Other Mr. Darcy, found at My Victorian Books:

And to read about the featured book in an earlier post on My Victorian Books, I've copied it below:

The Other Mr. Darcy / Review

Author: Monica Fairview
Paperback: 368 pages
Publisher: Sourcebooks Landmark (October 2009)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 140222513X

My Review:

Caroline Bingley is overwhelmed and heartbroken over the marriage of Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth Bennett. But soon, at a very awkward moment, a mysterious gentleman enters her life--Mr. Darcy's cousin from America. Tension immediately follows between the two as Caroline shows contempt for her American acquaintance. Although, Robert Darcy falls in love with Caroline, their worlds are very different and far apart.

This book is so elegantly written, the reader would think they are reading Jane Austen. I knew from the very beginning this was going to be an excellent book and I wasn't disappointed.


Again, here's the link to the contest, and an interview with Monica Fairview, author.
