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!
“If I could but know his heart, everything would become easy.”―Jane Austen, Sense and Sensibility. Miss Austen hits the nail on the head here; if only we knew what the other person wanted or was thinking.
The Secret of Love: 10 Simple Steps to Finding the Right Relationship
Men and women are different creatures, but if there were no connection, they would not want to be with each other. Unfortunately, the programming seems to be a bit out of kilter, which means that very often the ‘Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus’ theory holds true. Instead of beating the other sex up for being what they are, it is essential to accept that men are men and women are women. This premise holds for same sex couples. Some individuals are going to be sensitive, perceptive, etc. and that’s great. However, just because the other person may have read the same books on communication as you have, it does not necessarily follow that he or she is going to be able to apply good theories in their lives.
