Although I write sexy contemporary romance, I enjoy reading lots of different romance genres. I find that research–a must in historicals–throws me out of the story and…I have to admit that I so often go off to places in my head, that staying in the here and now is probably best for me as a writer.
That all being said, I love Pride and Prejudice. I’ve not only read Jane Austen’s classic, I enjoy re-watching the Colin Firth/Jennifer Ehle A&E six-hour Pride and Prejudice version as well as the more recent Keira Knightly/Matthew Macfadyen version. Both Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy are tremendous characters, but I completely relate to Mr. Darcy’s social awkwardness, so he tugs at my heart. To share this love of the hero, I’m running a contest with the winning prize being a canvas tote bag that reads “I ‘heart’ Mr. Darcy”.
Contests are fun for me because it gets my readers to interact! Love those emails.
To enter, all you have to do is shoot me an email at CarolRose2@hotmail.com and tell me what you most love about the character. Bonus points for telling me which is your favorite of the two film versions I mentioned. Good Luck to all. I know I’ll have a difficult time choosing a winner and want to send you all a prize. (I did this recently for a contest I ran in my newsletter! Such fun.)
