Juliet Archer’s new book in her series “Darcy & Friends” will be released in the UK on September 15th. Persuade Me is the second in this series that takes us into the world of Jane Austen’s novels, fast-forwarded into the 21st century and much into the minds of her male heroes. As in her first book, The Importance of Being Emma, where Ms. Archer gave us an engaging the tale of a modern-day Emma and her Mr. Knightley [you can read my review here], her new book tells of Anna Elliot and Rick Wentworth:
When do you let your heart rule your head?
As far as men are concerned, Anna Elliot is stuck in the past.
No one can compare to Rick Wentworth,
the man she was persuaded to give up eight years ago.
Meanwhile, Rick’s moved on – and up.
He’s got a successful career and a carefully controlled love life
where his heart doesn’t get a look in.
The words ‘forgive and forget’ aren’t in Rick’s vocabulary.
The word ‘regret’ is definitely in Anna’s.
When they meet again, can she persuade him
that their lost love is worth a second chance?
