Arabella writes Regency romances and finds that although times change, people do not. In matters of love and happiness, men and women want the same thing and experience the same problems. In this self-help book, each chapter is prefaced by (and sprinkled with) an inspiring quote from one of Jane Austen’s timeless novels or from her own letters to friends and family. Jane Austen had an unerring eye for what made people tick, and her observations on life, relationships, love, and romance have endured.
I grew up on a diet of Jane Austen, the Bronte sisters, and many other writers of that period. I also love history and generally find the past more fascinating than the future. I have been steeped in Regency writers since I was a teenager. From Jane Austen to Georgette Heyer, I read 'em all! I love writing Regency romances because they are romantic, fun and enable me to create feisty heroines and hunky heroes. I hope you'll enjoy my stories!
“One man’s ways may be as good as another’s, but we all like our own best.”―Jane Austen, Persuasion. Don't rush into a relationship because you feel anyone is better than no one.
The Secret of Love: 10 Simple Steps to Finding the Right Relationship
If your significant other is taking time to appear, there might be a good reason. He or she may not be ready for commitment (in fact, you might not be ready either, despite what you think). The other person may be extricating himself or herself from a previous relationship; they may still be living in another city; they might have a parent who is dying. There could be a number of very good reasons for the delay in realizing your dreams. You do not want someone who is not ready for you. You want someone who is single, available, unattached, and unencumbered. Trust me … that’s what you truly want. Someone with baggage and confusion will not be right. Be patient.
