In other exciting news, my contemporary romantic comedy — Pride, Prejudice and the Perfect Bet — was selected as one of Austenprose’s “Best Jane Austen-Inspired Books of 2014” (Contemporary category, 4.5 stars)!! You can find it digitally on AmazonB&NSmashwords, Kobo and iBooks, and it’s also available in paperback. This novel is part of the “Perfect” series, but it can be enjoyed as a stand-alone book. Here are some details about the story:

The course of true love doesn’t run smooth for wealthy stock trader Bingley McNamara and the not-so-angelic school psychologist Jane Henderson — a woman who’s making him rethink his commitment to bachelorhood…

This is the companion book to Pride, Prejudice and the Perfect Match (January 2013), which featured the unlikely romance between Dr. Will Darcy and Beth Ann Bennet.

In Pride, Prejudice and the Perfect Bet, Jane Henderson (Beth’s best friend) and Bingley McNamara (Will’s first cousin) begin their own unlikely love story, which starts at the Darcy/Bennet wedding, when they find themselves in the roles of maid of honor and best man for the happy couple…

Jane is an interning school psychologist and a woman who wears an angelic mask in public, but she’s not as sweet tempered as she’d like everyone to believe. Turns out, she may have just crossed paths with the one person who’ll unnerve her enough to get her to reveal her true self.

As for Bingley, he’s a wealthy, flirtatious and compulsively social financial guru, who likes to wager on stocks (and on just about anything that strikes his fancy). But has this dedicated ladies’ man finally met the woman who’ll challenge his bachelor ways?

Life’s biggest gamble is the game of love…
