Second in Series


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?

Juliet Archer

Juliet Archer 1Juliet 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.”

    Persuasion is my favourite Jane Austen Book. I am glad that Juliet Archer stayed true to the novel in “Persuade me”. At its heart the book is about regret and what could have been. Would life be different for Anna if she didn’t let Rick slip threw her fingers?

    Even in a modern setting, you can still feel the longing they both have for each other. Anna made the mistake when she was younger of letting her family rule her heart, and she regretted it ever since.

    The book is about second chances. Juliet Archer captured all of the angst and heart-break of loss as well as the joy of being reunited. “Persuade me” leaves you with a renewed sense of hope, that you don’t often find in other novels. I highly recommend, even if you haven’t read any other Austen books. It stands out on its own merit.
