By now, some of you have heard this for about a week now, but I’m really excited about having an audio book for those who love to listen to their favourite stories. I initially put my book up and hoped someone would want to narrate it, but most narrators prefer shorter books. Fortunately, Leena took a chance on this one!

I will say that it’s a bit strange listening to something I’ve written practically being acted out like an old-fashioned radio program (without the sound effects of course), but my house was extremely clean while I was listening through them all! I couldn’t write or distract myself on the computer so cleaning was how I occupied myself. I’m surprised my husband hasn’t asked me to have another book done!

Leena is also so great. I don’t know how she came up with so many different inflections for each character. It was definitely a fun experience and I hope I’ll be able to do it again!

If you’ve never read Particular Intentions, I’ll provide the blurb and everything just below as well as a link to Amazon where you can listen to a sample of Leena’s amazing work.


Who is this Mr. Darcy and what are his intentions?

Like much of Meryton, the Bennets of Longbourn anticipate the arrival of Mr. Bingley and his friends to Netherfield, yet an unexpected visitor is not a part of Mr. Bingley’s or Mr. Darcy’s plans. While the two gentlemen attempt to control their uninvited guest, Elizabeth Bennet arrives to tend to her ill sister. An overheard conversation, the intriguing behavior of Mr. Darcy, and Miss Bingley’s cloying manner all fascinate her, but manage to throw her emotions into turmoil as well. As Elizabeth becomes better acquainted with Mr. Darcy, his world unfolds and, if possible, it is more complicated than the man himself! Mysterious strangers and seducers lurk in the shadows – enough to threaten anyone’s equanimity. Elizabeth’s courage will be tested as she not only struggles to discover her own heart, but also why danger seems to surround Mr. Darcy.


Now! I have a free Audible copy of Particular Intentions to give away! Just leave me a comment on this blog post, and I’ll enter you into the draw! It’s that simple!

    I have not yet read this book so an audio copy would be great…maybe I’ll get some housework done, also. I have read and reviewed 3 other of your books and enjoyed them. Have not yet read The Earl’s Conquest…but it is on my radar.

    1. Thanks so much for the reviews! I really appreciate the time you took writing those!

    Ooo, haven’t got this one. Audiobooks are constant companions on my commutes, whether I’m driving or using public transport. Most of my audio library consists of JAFF but not completely. It’s lovely to see another of my favourite JAFF authors taking the plunge into audio publishing. I’ve listened to the sample and it sounds pretty good. Rest assured, I’ll be using one of my Audible credits if I’m not the lucky winner.


    1. A commute would be a good way to listen to a story! Whether you win or use your Audible credits, I hope you enjoy it! Thanks, Anji!

  11. I love your books. I have yet to listen to an audiobook and would be happy to be entered into the drawing. Thanks.


    1. Thanks so much, Shelley! Good luck!


  12. Laurie A McClain says:

    I don’t think I’ve read anything of yours yet. So, enter me for a chance, and thanks!


    1. Thanks for your interest!

    Thank you for the opportunity to have an audio book of yours. I love your books and sure the audio will be fantastic too. I do lots of listening when I’m drawing. It’s great and immerses me in the world of the story. That helps with the drawings too. 🙂



    1. Hi Janet! I love music when I’m drawing or painting (not that I have a ton of time for it these days), but I’ve never tried an audio book. I wonder if I could shut off that part of my brain enough when listening. Oh well! I might have to try it one day. Thanks, Janet!


  14. Pouran says:

    I have not tried audio books yet. I use continuing education, audio books for staying up to date in my profession and they save me time on daily basis. I would like to try this audio book. I fear that I may develop new addiction beside my kindle books.
    I have enjoyed your Unwavering Trust and Rain and Retribution will be next. Regardless of winning this audio book, Peculiar Intentions will be one the several books that I intend to reward myself with, very soon.
