Too funny Georgiana .. my initial response as well. Being Persuasion was my only reason for taking a copy. 😥

Marlene | 251 comments In Love and War A Collection of Love Stories by Carla Kelly

In Love and War: A Collection of Love by Carla Kelly is free. She writes non-JAFF Regency. I've read at least one book of hers that was very good. Some of hers are clean, others are not. I'm not sure about this collection of four Regency romances. I want to say it's clean, but I can't promise.

wosedwew | 231 comments This isn't really a promotion -- just useful info.


Emilyn from AHA posted this at FB:
Update: All members will be logged off at 12:30 am on Thursday, June 11th to prepare for the upgrade that begins at 1am.
We will be down for 3 days, beginning, Thursday, June 11th, for an upgrade beginning at 1am Pacific time.
The final phase of our Upgrade process is scheduled for Thurs. June 11th - Sat. June 13, 2020. Our internet host needs to move us to a new and better server with a new upgraded server operating system and a new database upgrade.
The whole website: A Happy Assembly, the Meryton Reading Room, Pemberley Library, et al, will be down and unavailable during the upgrade and server migration. Our IP address will change again and thus you may receive multiple error warnings if you try to go to meryton.com or AHA while we are down.
The AHA forums will be turned off and all users will be logged off at 1am Los Angeles time, Thurs. June 11th and will remain off until the upgrade is done. Due to current world events, this may take longer than expected so we are saying three days of downtime though it may be shorter.
Here is what you can do while we are updating and migrating:
IF after the upgrade is complete and you still can't access the site, you may need to Flush your DNS (again) and/or use GoogleDNS or OpenDNS or 1.1.1.1 to be able to see the site once it is back. Hopefully, the DNS errors of the last few weeks will be solved with the upgrade and you will not need these methods.
It has been quite the 2.5 month thing to take a whole website and forum system from 2010 to 2020. Big thanks to the whole team of Admins and Mods working on the phases of the upgrade.
Thank you for your patience in advance.
A Happy Assembly

Abigail Bok (regency_reader) Somebody may have posted this before, but perhaps it bears repeating: the Jane Austen Museum at Chawton Cottage is struggling to survive and looking for donations. Those of you who have recently read The Jane Austen Society may have a special feeling about this.

Currently the campaign is about halfway to its goal. If you're in a position to support it, please consider doing so: https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/j....

message 26: by Abigail (new)

Abigail Bok (regency_reader) Thanks, Patricia! I didn't find a donation page for the Jane Austen Centre in Bath, but they do have an online shop and buying something there would doubtless help: https://www.janeausten.co.uk/shop/.

Marlene | 251 comments I just finished reviewing an ARC for a full-length non-JAFF Regency romance of a favorite author of mine.

https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...

It's currently available for $3.99. This book has a lot of Regency cant and details I haven't read before, which is pretty impressive. I don't believe I found a single error, which is also impressive. The only things I highlighted to check turned out to be acceptable. Anyway, here's my review. If you're at all interested, this might be a good time to pick it up, because I don't know how long the current price lasts.

I hope you're all having a great day! My region of New York is in phase three tomorrow! Yay!
