Welcome to a new category of blog posts. Once a month, on a Friday, I will feature the description of and an excerpt from one of my previously published books. Sometimes these featured books, such as today’s feature, will be on sale for the weekend.
Let’s begin with the book’s description:
Graeme Clayton has always thought of his brother, Everett, as a bit of a blockhead. However, when Everett seems to prefer a fawning and flirtatious lady over Beatrice Tierney, Graeme knows that his brother is not just a bit of a blockhead but a complete and utter fool!
Knowing that Beatrice secretly loves Everett and despite his opinion of his brother’s mental faculties, Graeme vows to do his part to bring the two together. For to Graeme, there is nothing more important than seeing his lovely neighbour and good friend happy.
Beatrice Tierney has long harboured feelings for Graeme’s younger brother, who is serious and thoughtful ─ or at least he used to be. Now, she fears she must watch any hope she had of ever securing his heart slip away forever.
However, she is not destined to watch alone. Graeme has positioned himself as her champion and with his help, she just might find both true happiness and love.
His Beautiful Bea is the first in my Touches of Austen collection. These stories feature original characters and plots that have been touched in some way by the influence of Jane Austen and her novels. His Beautiful Bea has elements in it which harken back to Mansfield Park, but as you can see from the description and the excerpt below, this story is not a retelling or a variation of Mansfield Park. It is its own sweet tale of discovering love in an unexpected place.
Now for an excerpt. This portion is from chapter 4 which is about halfway through this short and sweet novella. Enjoy! Continue reading Friday’s Feature: His Beautiful Bea
