“My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.” If you just heaved a contented sigh at Mr. Darcy’s heartfelt words, then you, dear reader, are in good company. Here is a delightful collection of never-before-published stories inspired by Jane Austen—her novels, her life, her wit, her world.

In Lauren Willig’s “A Night at Northanger,” a young woman who doesn’t believe in ghosts meets a familiar specter at the infamous abbey; Jane Odiwe’s “Waiting” captures the exquisite uncertainty of Persuasion’s Wentworth and Anne as they await her family’s approval of their betrothal; Adriana Trigiani’s “Love and Best Wishes, Aunt Jane” imagines a modern-day Austen giving her niece advice upon her engagement; in Diana Birchall’s “Jane Austen’s Cat,” our beloved Jane tells her nieces “cat tales” based on her novels; Laurie Viera Rigler’s “Intolerable Stupidity” finds Mr. Darcy bringing charges against all the writers of Pride and Prejudice sequels, spin-offs, and retellings; in Janet Mullany’s “Jane Austen, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!” a teacher at an all-girls school invokes the Beatles to help her students understand Sense and Sensibility; and in Jo Beverley’s “Jane and the Mistletoe Kiss,” a widow doesn’t believe she’ll have a second chance at love . . . until a Miss Austen suggests otherwise.

Regency or contemporary, romantic or fantastical, each of these marvelous stories reaffirms the incomparable influence of one of history’s most cherished authors.

Stories by: Lauren Willig • Adriana Trigiani • Jo Beverley • Alexandra Potter • Laurie Viera Rigler • Frank Delaney & Diane Meier • Syrie James • Stephanie Barron • Amanda Grange • Pamela Aidan • Elizabeth Aston • Carrie Bebris • Diana Birchall • Monica Fairview • Janet Mullany • Jane Odiwe • Beth Pattillo • Myretta Robens • Jane Rubino and Caitlen Rubino-Bradway • Maya Slater • Margaret C. Sullivan • and Brenna Aubrey, the winner of a story contest hosted by the Republic of Pemberley

  1. Thanks for the giveaway, it looks like a very interesting anthology.

  2. This looks like an intersting grouping of stories. Thank you for the giveaway.

  3. I love to read anthologies so thank for the extra chance to win. I am most excited to read Laurie Viera Rigler’s “Intolerable Stupidity." She had me with the title and then I read that Mr. Darcy brings charges against writers of spin-offs, variations and retellings. That sounds delightful as I look forward to finding what his thoughts on all of the stories might be.

  4. I am not entering to win but I wanted to let others know that they NEED to read this book!!! I had not been a fan of JAFF fiction....but I decided to give this book a try. I figured it was better to read short stories and be able to say I tried JAFF and didn't like it rather than just being against it with never having read any. I WAS SOOOOO WRONG!!! I am so glad I read this because it helped me to discover some of my favorite authors!!! I am jealous I don't get that super excited feeling about discovering these stories but I am happy you all will!!

  5. Thank you for the feature and giveaway Mysti.

  6. The library had this book but I'd like a copy of my own.

  7. Oh my goodness, this looks awesome! Always down for more Austen!


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