Giveaway: Austentatious by Alyssa Goodnight

Early today, you guys got to eavesdrop as I sat down and chatted with not only Alyssa Goodnight, author of Austentatious, but also the book's stars, Nic and Sean. If the quirky adorablenss that was that interview didn't convince you that you want to read this book (and if my review doesn't finish the job of convincing you tomorrow...), then maybe the fact that you can win it, right now, will. =D

Austentatious by Alyssa Goodnight
Get It | Add It
Contemporary, 320 pages
Published February 1st 2012 by Kensington
In this quirky, sexy novel set against the lively, music-filled backdrop of Austin, Texas, a young woman learns that romance can wreak havoc with even the best laid plans. . .
It started innocently enough. While browsing in one of Austin's funky little shops, Nicola James is intrigued by a blank vintage journal she finds hidden among a set of Jane Austen novels. Even though Nic is a straight-laced engineer, she's still a sucker for anything Austen-esque. But her enthusiasm quickly turns to disbelief once she starts writing in the journal--because somehow, it's writing her back. . .

Miss Nicola James will be sensible and indulge in a little romance. Those twelve tiny words hit Nic like a thunderbolt, as if her diary was channeling Austen herself! Itching for a bit of excitement, Nic decides to follow her "Fairy Jane's" advice. The result: a red-hot romance with a sexy Scottish musician who charms his way into Nic's heart in about five seconds flat.

Sean MacInnes is warm, funny, and happens to think Nic is the most desirable woman he's ever met. But a guy like Sean doesn't exactly fit into her Life Plan. With no one but Fairy Jane to guide her, Nic must choose between the life she thought she wanted--and the kind of happy ending she never saw coming. . .

Alyssa has offered up winner's choice of paperback or audiobook of Austentatious - and I'm really not sure which way to sway you guys on this one... On the one hand, I like to tab funny things in physical books, and this made me want to tab all the things - but on the other, I loved the narration on this one. Accents! So I'll leave the tough decisions up to you, but in order to win, first you have to enter!

  1. Dear Jane: Having found the love of my life, whom my family dotes on, I find myself now having to do battle in defense of my decision not to have children with him. What advice can you give a reasonably settled and happy woman, when it comes to convincing her mother that she's reasonably settled and happy and does not want progeny?
    Fond regards,

  2. Dear Jane, how does a couple go about convincing a family, or even two families, that children are not a viable option for them?Is it wrong to say that you and your partner never want to be parents?

  3. I'd ask Jane if she would spill her secrets about Tom Lefroy.

  4. I would ask if she ever regretted not marrying and/or having children.

  5. Jane: in 2013, would YOU ever join a dating service???

  6. You were single Jane. Were you waiting for your own Darcy/Wentworth/Crawford :)

  7. I'd be curious to know if there was a secret or unrequited love in her past... of course I'd never have the guts to actually ask someone who was not a good friend about that.

  8. Dear Jane: when your sister told you that she wanted Fanny to marry Henry Crawford, what did you say to Cassandra? And why do you think Jane Fairfax should die in childbirth, after having suffered so much to marry Frank Churchill?

  9. I would ask her to tell me why Fanny and Edmund? I hate that them together.

  10. What was the end to Sanditon, Dear Jane?


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
