GIVEAWAY: Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters by Ben H. Winters
As our story opens, the Dashwood sisters are evicted from their childhood home and sent to live on a mysterious island full of savage creatures and dark secrets. While sensible Elinor falls in love with Edward Ferrars, her romantic sister Marianne is courted by both the handsome Willoughby and the hideous man-monster Colonel Brandon. Can the Dashwood sisters triumph over meddlesome matriarchs and unscrupulous rogues to find true love? Or will they fall prey to the tentacles that are forever snapping at their heels?
This masterful portrait of Regency England blends Jane Austen’s biting social commentary with ultraviolent depictions of sea monsters biting. It’s survival of the fittest—and only the swiftest swimmers will find true love!
Thanks to Tiffany at Quirk Classics, I can offer 2 copies of this Janey mash-up! (Ready, class? Thank you, Ms. Tiffany!) So if you want some "tentacled mayhem" for your very own, fill out this form. US and Canada only, please (sorry, world-buddies; there are things coming your way, I promise)
Ends June 30th.
