Jane Austen variation

I Dream of You by Robin Helm
A P&P sequel
Darcy is working too much, I should have written this review when I finished this short. I guess ok?

Sir Walter Takes A Wife by Laura Hile
A Persuasion sequel and P&P variation
This was interesting, Sir Walter is courting Lady de Bourgh. LOL. Funny

My Forever Valentine by Wendi Sotis
A P&P sequel variation
A rather sweet story

Pretense and Prejudice by Barbara Cornthwaite
A P&P variation
They both think the other one is a spy, I also liked that they met during other circumstances 

My Valentine by Mandy Cook
A P&P and a S&S sequel
This one was really dull, and was about lizzy and Darcy's kid

The Lover's Ruse by Susan Kaye
Persuasion Variation
Another boring one.

Some good, some not so good. You know, like all other anthologies.

Been a hot min since I read an anthology...

I cracked up so much over the Sir Walter and Lady C courtship in that one and enjoyed the spy one. :)

An anthology? No, thanks. Too short for my liking and they're usually such a mixed bag...

I am not the biggest fan

It was amusing! I actually liked her here

Oh I hear you
