Petronela Ungureanu is a fantasy writer and a journalist living in a picturesque part of poetic Romania. She takes great pleasure in simple things like walking barefoot in the grass, or reading Jane Austen in front of a good fire, surrounded by her numerous purring cats. When the time feels right, she mysteriously withdraws in her favorite corner where she concocts fantastical stories about elves, fairies, gnomes and other wondrous creatures. Here's her new release, A LOT OF PRIDE AND SOME PREJUDICE, a Regency romance with a touch of mystery.
PETRONELA UNGUREANU ON THE WEB:
A LOT OF PRIDE AND SOME PREJUDICE
On the verge of losing her home and her position in society, Miss Portia Thorpe is fighting all her battles with her very heart. When Lord Salisbury is offering his friendship and support, she develops a most unsuitable inclination towards him. Surrounded by uncertainty and some very strange events, Portia must face the future where her estate, Valhalla, lost at poker by her father, gets a new mysterious owner. Will she manage to find her place in the new order of things? Will she acceptan unexpected marriage proposal, just to save her home? With some pride, a little prejudice and all the courage in the world, she will eventually find a solution.
This charming novella reads like fan fiction for Jane Austen, but at the same time, it has Petronela's magical touch. There's always a little mystery and magic in the background, if not in the foreground, when the work of Petronela Ungureanu is involved. It certainly doesn't read like a novel written by a person who is not a native English speaker. I recommend it for fans of mystery, suspense and Regency romance. An exquisite piece of Regency fiction.
