Summary

He needs a rich wife. A pity that he’s falling for the wrong woman....

She’s looking to find out more about her past. She wasn’t expecting to find her future.

Colonel Fitzwilliam is a second son, often overshadowed by his titled, older brother and his cousin, Mr. Darcy. Returning from Waterloo, he knows it is time to find a wife with a healthy dowry, but he longs for a love match. Unfortunately for Fitzwilliam, love doesn’t put food on the table.

Miss Prudence Bamber has never known her mother’s family. A woman with her own mind and full life, she indulges her father’s wish to visit her long-lost relations. Mr Bamber hopes his daughter will find a husband; she wishes nothing more than to find out more about her mother’s history. It turns out to be a trip she won’t forget in a hurry.

Two people looking for love, but challenged by pride, secrets, and prejudice. Will they be able to overcome the odds to find their own happy ever after? Or, are they destined to remain separated by the constraints of society? Complex characters brought together in this gripping Regency Romance.

The Colonel’s Spinster is a Regency romance and Pride and Prejudice variation (JAFF), topped with a generous dose of humour, action, and tears. If you like simmering chemistry, fast-paced adventures, and strong characters, then you'll love Audrey Harrison's Regency tale.

Both the narration and Story are weak

The pride and prejudice character continuation theme is poor., this is not helped by a weak narration.. The dull story could have been lifted by a more animated narration.

The Best One of the P & P Sequels

While many will shudder at this admission, I’m not truly a P and P fan. And have never been able to get past just a few pages of any sequels to Ms. Austen’s classic works. But because I’m a fan of Ms. Harrison’s books, I gave it a try…. And….was not disappointed. Great characters, dialogue, story, and narration. Mr. Young made this story even better than it is on its own. And…perhaps correctly as one reviewer stated, Ms. Harrison may not have had all her facts correct, i.e. “Lady” De Bourgh, but it really doesn’t matter. It’s just a story.
