Wishlist Wednesday


I am delighted to be part of wishlist Wednesday which is hosted by Dani at pen to paper

The idea is to post about one book each week that has been on your wishlist for some time, or maybe just added.

So what do you need to do to join in?

Follow Pen to Paper as host of the meme.

Pick a book from your wishlist that you are dying to get to put on your shelves.

Do a post telling your readers about the book and why it's on your wishlist.

Add your blog to the linky at the bottom of her post.

Put a link back to pen to paper (http://vogue-pentopaper.blogspot.com) somewhere in your post.




Darcy and Fitzwilliam: A Tale of a Gentleman and an Officer (Darcy and Fitzwilliam, #1)


My wishlist Wednesday book

is

Darcy and Fitzwilliam : A Tale of a Gentleman and an Officer (Darcy and Fitzwilliam #1)

by

Karen V. Wasylowski




From Goodreads

A gentleman in love cannot survive without his best friend...

Fitzwilliam Darcy and Colonel Fitzwilliam couldn't be more different, and that goes for the way each one woos and pursues the woman of his dreams. Darcy is quiet and reserved, careful and dutiful, and his qualms and hesitations are going to torpedo his courtship of Elizabeth. His affable and vivacious cousin, Colonel Fitzwilliam is a military hero whose devil-may-care personality hides the torments within, until he finds himself in a passionate, whirlwind affair with a beautiful widow who won't hear of his honourable intentions.

Cousins, best friends, and sparring partners, Darcy and Fitzwilliam have always been there for each other. So it's no surprise when the only one who can help Darcy fix his botched marriage proposals is Fitzwilliam, and the only one who can pull Fitzwilliam out of an increasingly dangerous entanglement is Darcy.


Pride and Prejudice is one of my favourite classic romances and I have grown to love the spin off ideas from other clever authors.This one is firmly on my wishlist.

I love the cover of this one - couldn't you just run down those stairs and along that path!

There is a competition to win a copy of Karen Wasylowski's sequel to Darcy and Fitzwilliam, Sons and Daughters,on her blog  here

  3. Hello,
    New follower here. This sounds like it would be a very nice classic romance. One with courting and flowers! I think a lot of that is lost now days. Sounds fun, I hope you get to read it soon! Here is the link to mine: http://sparetimebookblog.blogspot.com/2012/10/wishlist-wednesday-17.html
