About Susan Mason-Milks

You might be surprised to learn that when Ms. Mason-Milks read Pride and Prejudice for the first time in the eighth grade, she was not impressed! That changed when she saw the now famous 1995 mini-series version of the story. Deciding to give Austen another chance, she read all the novels and fell in love.
A few years ago, she was delighted to discover that there were dozens of web sites devoted to everything “Jane.” After reading the fan fiction posted on various web sites, she started writing.
She says, “Writing stories inspired by Austen’s books offers a way to spend more time with characters I’ve grown to love. Just because the book ends, it doesn’t have to be the end of the story.” Her favorite Austen book is Pride and Prejudice with Persuasion a close second.
In addition to writing, her other loves include singing in "a cappella joy" (women’s barbershop chorus), reading, and yoga. She currently lives in Seattle with her husband and four very naughty cats.

Review by: Warmisunqu Austen on June 14, 2013 : star star star star
Es cómodo y agradable seguir la historia, los diálogos de Darcy y Elizabeth son cautivadores, tienen ese aura de contradicción o mala interpretación del uno por el otro, que te mantiene en vilo.
La autora mantiene una constante sensación de misterio existente alrededor de los sentimientos de Elizabeth por Darcy (me agrada, no lo entiendo, lo mal interpreto, quiero que se acerque, quiero que se aleje, me asusta, lo lastimo etc., son momentos que siente amarlo y otros está perdida en los silencios de su marido).
Hábilmente Mason te introduce en la historia y sin tener situaciones de mucha angustia, es como disfrutar de un cálido y suave sueño, hasta, casi antes del final, de golpe, su desenlace te llena de sensaciones intensas, sin tener descripciones explícitas de sexo, solo lo deja entrever, dejando al lector que vuele su imaginación.
La historia que narra Mason es un cálido y tentador romance que no debe perderse.

Review by: The Owl on July 24, 2012 : star star star
Nothing new under the sun, but that should be expected when the starting point is... classical. However I enjoy it (but I am partial to Pride and Prejudice-like romance, I doubt you will relish it if you do not appreciate the struggle of Darcy and Eliza) it is better than many Abigail Reynolds "what if" and worse than few, but maybe is to similar to "The last man in the world". I appreciated very much the fact that some events that I expected to happen, did not happen.
