The Sweetest Ruin by Amy George | Guest Post and Giveaway

free on Kindle Unlimited


When William Darcy suffers a sudden health crisis, he immediately realizes two things: his sister will continue to nag him about his nonexistent social life, and he won’t stand for it. How can he possibly escape Georgiana’s good intentions or the watchful gaze of Aunt Catherine, his assigned babysitter? Cue a midnight getaway to the tackiest place he can think of. Lounge singers, booze, and women of loose moral fiber—Las Vegas, here he comes!

Elizabeth Bennet lives a quiet life as a UNLV student and a popular cocktail waitress in one of the nicer casinos in town. Though content to see her best friend, Thad, in a blissfully happy relationship, she has no desire to complicate her own life with what will undoubtedly result in a broken heart. Then she serves a drink to a devastatingly handsome Englishman, and all bets, as they say, are off.

This is a modern what-if of Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice. It is intended for an adult audience.

This book may be unsuitable for people under 18 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

Blog Tour, Guest Post & Giveaway | The Sweetest Ruin

by Amy George 

For the third stop on the The Sweetest Ruin blog tour, I have Ms. Amy George! Thanks for visiting!

Good morning, Nissa, and thank you for inviting me to visit with your readers at Of Pens and Pages. It’s a pleasure to be here with you to share my new book, The Sweetest Ruin, with your readers. As a JAFF reader, I am sure you’ve read many books that transport Darcy and Elizabeth to a contemporary setting, and my modern JAFF story has them meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Music is primal. It pulls something out of our souls and can make or break us. Think of the worst moment of your life. Was there a song playing? Can you listen to that song now? Or the best moment? Doesn't that song make you smile and warm you all over, like you're standing in the sunshine?

I am thrilled to share with your readers a Spotify playlist that I made to set the stage for The Sweetest Ruin. It’s also a great collection of songs to listen to when you want to revisit the characters in my story. It includes [both] Elvis and Frank naturally, but also some songs that I think tell the story of these characters meeting and falling in love. Please enjoy!

About Amy George

Amy George is a middle-aged woman who got rid of her old lady/grown up and has since purchased an unreasonably small car. She refuses to listen to its radio at a reasonable volume, especially when the Beastie Boys or the Violent Femmes are playing. She lives in a small town in the Midwest where the bookstore and yarn shop are neighbors and most food is fried. Her household consists of a dog, a man, a hermit, and stubborn soap scum.

She has been writing since she was a child and ran the Hyacinth Gardens, a popular but defunct JAFF site.

    I loved this book. I always like this type of scenario (no spoilers!) and it certainly didn’t disappoint. It has gone straight on my ‘ to be ‘re read often’ list.

    I love to use muse-ic when I write so I relate a great deal to authors who do the same, or have playlists that tie right into the story. Thanks for a new mix of tunes for us to enjoy while we read this new book!

  3. Thanks for the playlist, Amy. I can’t listen to it right now as the sound doesn’t work on this iPad any more. I love how music can evoke the mood of a book and really appreciate it when authors share playlists with us.

    One query: when I logged on to the Rafflecopter, it wouldn’t let me add any more entries, yet below it said that additional entries could be earned by daily tweeting and commenting on blog posts.

    Thank you all so much for the kind words. I love the songs on this playlist and am glad you like them, too!
