When do you let your heart rule your head?
As far as men are concerned, Anna Elliot is stuck in the past. No one can compare to Rick Wentworth, the man she was persuaded to give up ten years ago.
Meanwhile, Rick’s moved on – and up. He’s got a successful career and a carefully controlled love life where his heart doesn’t get a look in. The words ‘forgive and forget’ aren’t in Rick’s vocabulary.
The word ‘regret’ is definitely in Anna’s. When they meet again, can she persuade him that their lost love is worth a second chance?
Darcy & Friends Series – Book 2
Juliet Archer describes herself as ‘a 19th-century mind in a 21st-century body – actually, some days it’s the other way round’. The youngest of four girls, she was born and bred in North-East England, where she met her future husband. Unlike Anne Elliot in Jane Austen’s Persuasion, she got married despite pressure to wait until she’d finished her degree, and emerged from the University of Nottingham with a First in French and Russian. Thirty years later, she is still married and lives in Hertfordshire.
Juliet’s first novel in the series, The Importance of Being Emma won the 2011 Big Red Reads Fiction Award and was short-listed for the Melissa Nathan Award for Comedy Romance. Joanna Trollope stated it was: “An ingenious and often effective, very affectionate tribute to a great predecessor with some witty contemporary versions of characters that I think Jane Austen herself would have loved.”
