Cover Reveal – The Predisposition of Miss Elizabeth Bennet by Hunter Quinn

category Uncategorized 113

Hunter Quinn is a new author for Meryton Press, and we are pleased to have her with us and to be revealing the cover for her first book, The Predisposition of Miss Elizabeth Bennet. It is also available for pre-order today, Thursday, April 8th, and will be delivered to your eReader on April 15th. Before we get to the cover, I would like to introduce you to Hunter Quinn.

Author Bio

Hunter Quinn is a British writer, residing in the southwest of England. She is an avid reader, no doubt due to the influence of her mother, an English classics’ professor and lecturer. 

Having grown up a stone’s throw from Bath and always surrounded by the words of literary greats, Hunter first discovered Jane Austen at a young age. But it was the ubiquitous scene where Mr. Darcy—portrayed by Colin Firth (a moment of silence and applause)—first emerged from the lake in the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice that cemented her love for Jane Austen and the regency romance genre of spirited damsels, dashing gentleman, and glittering ballrooms. Afterwards, Hunter walked through life daydreaming and writing ‘what if’ scenarios between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy but never had the courage to share them. 

Once the lockdown went into effect, Hunter took the plunge and began sharing her first novel on well-known JAFF sites. The praise and interest of readers gave her the confidence to submit The Predisposition of Miss Elizabeth Bennet to Meryton Press Publishing…and the rest is history!

Would you like to know a little more about Hunter’s book?

Back Cover Copy

An insulting proposal without an explanatory letter…how can they possibly reconcile?

When her sister Lydia elopes without a trace, Elizabeth Bennet must put aside her predisposition against Mr. Darcy—the man whose hand she refused months earlier—and plead for his assistance in locating the wayward couple. As a result, they face daunting hurdles with help from well-loved friends and interference from old rivals. Will their struggles result in permanent estrangement or a love match?

Oh that Lydia! She may be trouble at times, but it seems that she has unintentionally brought Elizabeth and Darcy together. I like that! Hunter will share an excerpt shortly, and you can read more about Lizzy going to ask for help.

Now it is time to take a look at the cover for The Predisposition of Miss Elizabeth Bennet.

Isn’t that a beautiful dress? The photo of the dress and “Lizzy” is courtesy of RegencyCouture, and the dress is made by Julia. You can find her on Etsy and Instagram under RegencyCouture. She makes many beautiful dresses and hats.

What about the background? Aren’t the fall colors pretty? The Lyme Park photo is courtesy of Míra Magdó. During all of Míra’s travels, she has taken so many gorgeous pictures and met many of the actors and actresses from the miniseries. I’m jealous! 🙂

Let’s take a peek at the back cover too. It represents a scene in the book. When you read Hunter’s story, watch for it. 🙂 It has quite an unexpected outcome, but that’s all I will say!

The Predisposition of Miss Elizabeth Bennet is available for pre-order on Amazon in eBook format. After it is released it will also be available as a paperback and on Kindle Unlimited.

Since we’ve had a look at the cover, let’s hear from Hunter. She is sharing the first excerpt for her book. We hope you enjoy it.

Firstly, I would like to offer a heartfelt thank you to all at Meryton Press for their kind welcome and support, on this road to publish my first Pride and Prejudice variation and to the amazing editors I have been blessed with: Carole Steinhardt (beta), Becky Sun, and Ellen Pickels. And finally, a big thanks must be made to Janet Taylor for her care and patience!

Here is a short extract from the beginning of The Predisposition of Miss Elizabeth Bennet. I will be posting more during my blog tour and hope to see you there!

Thanks for your support!

Excerpt:

“The master will see you in his study. If you would allow me…” Jarvis gestured to her outerwear. It took but a moment for Elizabeth to remove and hand over her pelisse and bonnet. “If you will please follow me, Miss Bennet, I shall show you to Mr Darcy.”

Elizabeth’s knees felt weak. Mr Darcy had agreed to see her! Did this mean he would help? Or did he simply want to witness her downfall and then have the satisfaction of throwing her out onto the street? But then, how could he know of the scandal that had occurred in her family…

“Miss Bennet?”

“Yes?”

“If you would please follow me,” the butler repeated as he gestured in the direction, he was to take her.

Elizabeth barely managed a small nod before following the butler on unsteady legs. As they drew deeper into the house, Elizabeth did not take notice of her surroundings. She was too preoccupied in rehearsing what she might say once she was face to face with Mr Darcy. She had to compose herself so she could speak in a calm and reasonable manner. Nervously, she patted her hair and smoothed the skirt of her gown.

All too soon, Jarvis stopped in front of yet another impressive door. Elizabeth had been so engrossed in her thoughts that she very nearly barrelled into the butler’s narrow frame. He pretended not to notice the misstep, raised a pristine, white-gloved hand, and knocked twice upon the solid oak door.

“Enter,” intoned a deep voice from within, and the butler opened the door. Elizabeth’s heart began to pound a little faster.

“Miss Bennet to see you, sir,” announced Jarvis with a bow.

He stepped to the side, allowing Elizabeth to enter, and gave her a barely perceptible smile and nod. This small gesture made her warm to him even further.

Not entirely certain that her legs would not crumple at any moment, Elizabeth squared her shoulders, drew herself up to her full height, and stepped into the lion’s den, ready for battle.

Jarvis had closed the door enough to give them a modicum of privacy, yet not so much that Elizabeth’s reputation would be damaged. Although, being there without a chaperone or companion present was damning enough! Taking a moment to allow her eyes to adjust to the dimness of the room, she did not immediately see Mr Darcy behind his desk. But then her gaze found him. He did not stand to greet her but sat motionless, his face partially hidden in the shadows as he regarded her.

Elizabeth, never one to be easily intimidated, had always found a way to convey confidence when she was nervous or unsure.

“Mr Darcy,” she said with a curtsey.

Her voice seemed to have animated him, for he then stood, walked around his desk, and faced her. Elizabeth noticed his coat was missing and that his cravat had been pulled at and loosened. He maintained a substantial distance from her, but even in his current position, he was a towering presence. Has he always been so tall? Elizabeth wondered distractedly.

His eyes bored into hers—their depths of stormy grey making her want to flee and hide. How can his eyes be so cold and yet burn so brightly? She took in his rugged appearance and aristocratic jawline—disapproving and hard. As he took a step towards her, the flames from the grand fireplace cast a menacing shadow over his countenance. For a moment, he looked like the devil himself. Elizabeth’s stomach clenched as a chill ran through her, curling her toes and making the hairs on her neck stand on end.

What do you think of the excerpt? At least we have an idea why Lizzy needs Darcy’s help, but is there more to it than we know? What about his missing coat and loosened cravat? I’m sure that was an unexpected sight! It might have curled my toes! 🙂

    That unexpected sight of Darcy with a loosened cravat etc would probably curl more than my toes!
    Darcy and Elizabeth working together? Wonderful! Ok so people might interfere but I’m sure they will eventually succeed.
    I love the cover, the dress is gorgeous, I love Lyme Park (although I haven’t visited for just over twelve months) and I find the picture on the back cover very intriguing.
    I look forward to reading this and have it on my list. Good luck Hunter.

      Hi Glynis! That sight would have curled more than my toes too! lol We’re glad you love the cover. I think that dress is gorgeous. That is Julia, the one who made it, wearing it. I think she made to wear at Bath during the festival. Maybe after the pandemic you can visit Lyme Park again! I would love to go back myself. I hope you find the scene represented by the back cover just as intriguing. Good luck in the giveaway, and thanks for visiting today.

      I agree, I fear I spend too much time thinking of Mr Darcy not so formally attired…

      The cover is superb! Janet has such a good eye and has done such a wonderful job on the cover for me. I am grateful for such an introduction for my first novel. I couldn’t agree more, the dress is beautiful!

      I hope you enjoy my variation and good luck!

    Oh-My-Gosh! There is too much going on to even try and comment. That front cover [the dress, the colors, the background] was amazing and the back was simply superb. Wow! Those guys facing off sent chills down my back. Then I read the excerpt and with my toes curled… I’m a mess. Congratulations and blessings to this new author and all that took part in this fabulous cover. I wish Hunter a most excellent blog tour. Our bloggers are so much fun. Thanks to Meryton Press for the generous giveaway and good luck to all in the drawing. Everyone, stay safe and healthy. This pandemic will be gone one day. In the meantime, we have fabulous books and stories to read. I’ve got to know how Darcy responded. Was that a slur that he didn’t even put his coat on. Did he just disrespect her? La! Questions, questions!!

      Hi Jeanne! I love your comments. You always put so much thought into what you are saying. I think several of us have that “toe curling” problem after reading the excerpt. Thank you for dropping in and sharing your thoughts with us. They are much appreciated. As for Darcy not having his coat on, maybe it was more that he was stunned rather than a slur…??? At that particular moment…oh bother, I don’t want to give anything away. I’ll just add that you need to read this scene in its entirety! You will love it! 🙂

    Janet always does such gorgeous covers, and each time I say it’s her best cover, she comes out and does a better one. Honestly! The front scenery from Lyme Park (I was there in 2019), the gown–I want those sleeves for my own gown! And the back–what are they talking about?

    Of course, this is tied in with one of those excerpts that leaves the reader fanning themself thinking of Darcy half undressed already. Did you know that the Regency man’s shirt was considered underwear? Be still my heart! And a loosened cravat and eyes boring into hers as well. How can she manage her business with all that? Wow!

    I look forward to the blog tour and more snippets like this, and have a blast on your release day, Hunter. I know how truly exciting these moments can be for each and every book, and Janet makes them extra special! So enjoy, Hunter, and best of luck.

    And thanks, Janet, for exceeding the best.

      Suzan, isn’t this a fantastic excerpt. Definitely a “be still my heart” scene! It would be difficult to concentrate. You need to know Darcy’s response to her arrival. 🙂 I can’t wait for you to read the rest of this scene and the entire book!

      Thank you so much for all the lovely things you said. I’m humbled and extremely appreciative.

      The two photos were so perfect for what Hunter wanted for her cover, and that dress is beautiful. I want it! The two guy on the back are having quite the conversation. You are going to love it.

I’m impatient to know how the rest of that scene plays out. No explanatory letter? Uh-oh! And the cover—that dress, those soft blues, the scenery, and the back image! Aargh!

    Such a great excerpt and cover. I think that Darcy is still in a state of disquiet over losing Elizabeth, do his disheveled appearance. The scene is wonderfully written and emotionally charged, I loved it.
    My guess is that Elizabeth needs his help with finding Wickham and Lydia. We will see.
    Looking forward to reading it.

    This is my first time hearing about Hunter and I’m glad Meryton Press is there to help and support a new author. I love the Regency dress that Elizabeth is wearing but it feels slightly modern. I can’t wait to know what occurs next. I think Darcy will not refuse Elizabeth’s plea for help in recovering her youngest sister.

      Hi Sylvia. We’re happy to see you here. Isn’t that dress beautiful? Most of the dresses made by Julia of RegencyCouture, are authentic and true to the time period. She is quite a seamstress and happily modeled it for us! We hope you get to read the book soon and see if Darcy does indeed help Elizabeth.

    Congratulations on your book Ms Quinn. The cover is lovely ( & vivid).It made me think of Lizzy in Pemberley. However, her hands seeems to be clasped making her looked worried. I just wonder if it was depicting something in the story. Looking forward to ODC story

    Congratulations on your debut novel! The cover is beautiful. I enjoyed the excerpt and look forward to reading the entire story. I love any time Darcy and Elizabeth get to spend one on one time together, forcing themselves to communicate. I anticipate them doing so during their search or Lydia. Wishing you every success with your new book.

      It’s great to hear you enjoyed the excerpt, and we hope you get to read the entire story before too much longer. It will be released on the 15th. I love stories with lots of Darcy and Elizabeth one on one time too. Good luck!
