It is always interesting when there are two choices for a woman's love life. This sounds like an interesting read.
(Kathleen Bianchi 4:08am November 28, 2011)
I'm looking forward to following Georgiana's journey.
(Mary Preston 4:53am November 28, 2011)
I can't wait to read this.
(Mary Smith 6:18am November 28, 2011)
Love to read the book...sounds like a historical romance......email@example.com
(Lnda McFarland 6:47am November 28, 2011)
Miss Darcy sounds better and better!
(Marjorie Carmony 7:11am November 28, 2011)
This sounds great, I hope I win!
(Dana Reeder 7:13am November 28, 2011)
Did most men of this time period feel as though they had to come across as
gruff? If so, is that the same reason most women felt they had to act like a
delicate flower? I love this time period and I never tire of reading and learning
more about the Darcy's. I'm hoping to win this really terrific book to "feed" my

Love the excerpts.. This sounds very different from the usual historical romance..
(Cate Sparks 7:33am November 28, 2011)
I think men are born knowing exactly how to please a woman! Looking forward to reading your latest book.
(Shirley Younger 8:24am November 28, 2011)
This is very different from what I have been reading (paranormals) so I may have to pick it up and give it a try.
(Patti Paonessa 8:53am November 28, 2011)
Men will be men, especially in that era where they were so dominant. I do like the lady having two love interests. I will have to read all of your books. Thanks for sharing!
(Dawn Staniszeski 9:17am November 28, 2011)
Good morning everyone! It is lovely to wake up and see so many great
comments already. Nice! It sounds like all of you enjoyed this glimpse
into Georgiana Darcy's life. Thanks for the interest.
Linda, Yes it is a historical romance. Lots of romance but also set in a
fascinating time period. I enjoyed exploring what was happening in
Paris of 1820 as well as the musical theme.
Connie, I don't think men were gruff in general any more than they are
today. These 3 men happen to be that way, Lord Essenton because he
truly is a nasty person and the other 2 who are irascible on the surface.
Those are the characters I selected here because they have a similar
quality. The other men of my story, especially Sebastian Butler, are
completely different. Teddy bears!
Yes Patti - Time for a break from vampires and shapeshifters! LOL!
I'll keep checking in if anyone has any other comments. See you all
(Sharon Lathan 9:45am November 28, 2011)
What a wonderful world you've created!
(Margay Roberge 10:31am November 28, 2011)
This sounds wonderful. I have always loved the world that Darcy and Elizabeth lived in and always wanted Georgiana to find someone.
(Jenifer Penczynzyn 10:57am November 28, 2011)
Oooh I love Pride and Prejudice... Looking forward to reading your book.
(May Pau 11:31am November 28, 2011)
I'm sure that I'm going to enjoy this book, because I've played the cello since I was in Junior High. I wanted to play the violin, and the only instrument that was available was the cello. The teacher saw the look of disappointment on my face and said to me "You'll learn to love the instrument." I'll never forget those words, and he was right. To this day, I've learned to pick the cello out when I hear instrumentals on the radio, and I think it's a beautiful instrument, in fact, more beautiful than the violin. Anyway, I find the story to be ver interesting, the characters have "believable" names, and the cover of the book is very tastefully done. Congratulations!!
(Peggy Roberson 11:31am November 28, 2011)
I'm looking forward to reading this book.. Looks like something I would stay up all night reading!!
(Joyce Bruner 11:37am November 28, 2011)
I'd love to win this, it sounds great.
(Wilma Frana 11:38am November 28, 2011)
Peggy, I am sure you will especially appreciate my novel then. Music
figures very heavily into the story, all the way around. Even the chapter
titles are musical terms. With the main characters being musicians and
composers there was no other way to write it.
(Sharon Lathan 12:04pm November 28, 2011)
I love to learn about the peripheral characters from a book I thoroughly enjoyed.
It is really wonderful that you can be so creative--something to look forward to.
(Sandra Spilecki 12:07pm November 28, 2011)
It's strange. Recently I was wondering if a talented lady of the nobility during that period of time was allowed to use her gift in a public way. I decided it would take a strong willed and wealthy lady to do so. MISS DARCY FALLS IN LOVE sounds like a fun book to read.
(Anna Speed 12:52pm November 28, 2011)
It is tempting to find out what happens to georgina
(Catherine Myers 1:15pm November 28, 2011)
This book sounds really good. I can't wait to check it out. I love reading books that involve music.
(Lindsay Wolford 1:22pm November 28, 2011)
Oh! As soon as I began reading the description of this book, I LOVED it already. The time period, the music - all of it - THANK YOU for the opportunity to win a copy!
(Felicia Ciaudelli 1:48pm November 28, 2011)
What an interesting idea for a book--I'll look forward to reading it!
(Kathleen Conner 2:04pm November 28, 2011)
Anna, There were definitely limitations to what a respectable lady could
do. But as we know from the example of Jane Austen - just to name
one - a woman did have some options. Still, it was not easy. I was
fortunate to find a way to make it plausible for Georgiana, such as
learning about the Paris Conservatoire of Music where women were
admitted as students. And then if you marry a titled man who also
pursues a "career" - score!
Felicia, you are most welcome!
Thanks for so much interest, everyone. This is really nice!
(Sharon Lathan 2:26pm November 28, 2011)
Sure hope to win, MISS DARCY FALLS IN LOVE
(Debbie Ellis 3:38pm November 28, 2011)
Hello, Ms. Lathan.
Thank you so much for giving your readers a bit more insight into your newest work. Though I have followed all your P&P series I have not had the good fortune to purchase this one yet. Who knows, perhaps I'll win a copy today!
I am looking forward to reading more about Miss. Darcy and her romantic journey. You've teased at it in your other works so this will give us a lot of answers that we've looked for.
(Monica Alaniz 3:45pm November 28, 2011)
This sounds good I like historicals and so does my daughter :)
(Brandy Blake 4:13pm November 28, 2011)
It looks like an interesting group of characters.
(Maureen Emmons 4:41pm November 28, 2011)
You are most welcome, Monica. It is very fun to delve back into it. I almost
forgot how many intriguing characters I created! I tend to like writing
quirky people. I hope you enjoy reading the rest-of-the-story after all my
teasers! I have a doosie of a teaser at the end of this one. *hint hint
(Sharon Lathan 4:55pm November 28, 2011)
Recently, I've been reading a lot of western romance novels, and I'm ready for some historical romance again, and this one sounds great with the music theme in it. I played the violin as a child and only 3 students took string instruments as a course--one being the music instructors daughter and the other two being my sister and I! It seems almost unbelievable, but most kids couldn't afford instruments. Mine was given to me by my grandmother and my sister's was rented (a viola). Loved reading the posts and excerpts from Miss Darcy Falls in Love.
(Linda Luinstra 5:19pm November 28, 2011)
You paint a good picture with words. I can see the differences in characters with your sketches and how they may react in scenes. Whenever authors have descriptions of the players in the front of the book, I thank them for helping me keep everything straighter plus I can refer back to the list, if need be.
(Alyson Widen 6:14pm November 28, 2011)
I am more and more intrigued by your new book. Learning about all the
character development is fascinating.

I think a nice romance would be fun to read this time of year.
(Sue Farrell 6:34pm November 28, 2011)
Your book sound great. Thanks for introductions.
(Tammy Yenalavitch 7:12pm November 28, 2011)
Hi Sharon. I follow you over at Austen Authors. I just love your books!
(Molly Wilsbacher 7:20pm November 28, 2011)
Thanks for stopping by today, ladies, and good luck with the giveaway
contest. I am thrilled that Sourcebooks is offering 3 copies! But win or
buy, I hope everyone enjoys my musical romance for Georgiana Darcy.
Alyson, I have a complete Cast of Character list on my website for each
of my novels. I think it does help, especially when there are a ton of
characters as there are in my Darcy Saga series novels. Even I flip to it
for reference now and again!
(Sharon Lathan 7:28pm November 28, 2011)
This book sounds fantastic. Please enter me in this great
contest. Thank You so much. Cecilia CECE
(Cecilia Dunbar Hernandez 7:53pm November 28, 2011)
With your vivid character descriptions;I can almost hear each character's "musical theme song" playing in the background as they speak.
(Joanne Hicks 9:20pm November 28, 2011)
Professor Florange reminds me of my Calculus professor who expected excellence.
(Jan D 11:15pm November 28, 2011)
(Mary C 11:18pm November 28, 2011)
And here I thought Georgina was already happily married to a neighbor, a geologist. That must have been a rumor only. I love historicals, romances and especially those books divulging some actual history. Whichever this is, it sounds like an interesting and enjoyable addition to the genre.
