Pride, Prejudice, and Secrets by C P Odom Blog Tour!

Author C P Odom is releasing his third novel, Pride, Prejudice, and Secrets, with Meyrton Press. To kick off Pride, Prejudice, and Secrets' launch, we have put together a diverting blog tour filled with guest posts, exclusive excerpts, an author interview, and giveaways!! 

Book Blurb:
“Seldom, very seldom, does complete truth belong to any human disclosure; seldom can it happen that something is not a little disguised, or a little mistaken.”
Jane Austen

It is always the completely unforeseen events that lead to the most unexpected consequences, and such is the case in this variation on Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. One of the crucial points in Austen’s novel is Miss Elizabeth Bennet’s fiery and passionate refusal and denunciation of the equally passionate but infinitely more repressed Fitzwilliam Darcy. What might eventuate if the robustly healthy Elizabeth falls prey to illness for almost the first time in her life just when Darcy comes to call? Bemused by her illness, she hardly comprehends what Darcy is asking, and her simple nod of acknowledgment is misinterpreted as acceptance of his suit by a joyous Darcy. By the time Elizabeth regains her health, it seems that every one of her acquaintance and many outside of it accept that she has become engaged to the last man in the world she would ever have considered marrying. Can she openly demand her engagement to the amorous but prideful Darcy be broken, a course fraught with hazards in the social milieu of Regency England? In a maelstrom of confusion, choices have to be made and disclosures closely considered. Elizabeth knows that nothing in her life will ever be the same, and the consequences will likely spread further than she can imagine.

  1. as soon as possible this will be added to my amazon wish list

  2. yay! I love Colin's stories. So few men write Austenesque and I love that the ones I have read so far are SO GOOD!

  3. Do we have a publication date yet? I agree with Monica that the men that write Pride and Prejudice variations are awesome. I'm aware of Jack Caldwell, Stan Hurd, and Colin. Are there more that I need to be aware of?

    I am very excited to read this one in particular.

    1. It should be published any day now, Joy. That is all I know at this point. :)
      I am looking forward to reading Stan Hurd's books.
      Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I have already added this book my wish list. I am so sorry; I haven't participated in the tour, but I will be to follow it. Maybe to be next :P
    I hope that you have an excellent year. Happy new year 2015!!
    Best wishes!!

    1. Thanks, Natali! I hope 2015 is a great year for you!
      We miss you on the tour, but know there is only so much time. Hopefully you can join us in the future! :) Be sure to enter the giveaways for Pride, Prejudice, and Secrets! :)

  5. Am I the only one not able to find an excerpt for this book at "Everything Books & Authors" ? The most recent review that I can find there is from Jan. 8.

    1. Here is the link, lovemysofa.

    2. Well that explains it! I thought the review would be on the day of the blog tour stop, whereas she had reviewed it a week earlier.
      Thanks, Jakki, for the link.
