A Journey into Regency England with Petronela Ungureanu

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.

REVIEW

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.

  1. I've read several books based on, or inspired by Prise and Prejudice, but not the original. Think I should take a look as it's clearly made a big impact on other writers.

Maria Perry Mohan's Review of 1857 Dust of AgesVolume I -  A Forgotten Tale by Vandana Shankar


As historical fiction goes, this is first class. We’re literally getting glimpses of a fascinating story as seen through the eyes of today. Can it really be that an Indian royal family gave their daughter in marriage to a British Army officer?  Some say it could be impossible, but has the truth been covered up? And why?
Those glances back in time show teasing glimpses of a royal family at a crossroads. The queen’s consternation when a male hair has not been born and her greedy sister-in-law, the one who has a son, eyes up the kingdom. Would such a queen mother be good for a kingdom? Probably not.

The princess’s character comes through as a girl who has been born to lead her kingdom. The 19th century produced one of the gr…
