Jane and the Damned (Immortal Jane Austen, #1)
Jane Austen Novelist . . . gentlewoman . . . Damned, Fanged, and Dangerous to know.
Aspiring writer Jane Austen knows that respectable young ladies like herself are supposed to shun the Damned—the beautiful, fashionable, exquisitely seductive vampires who are all the rage in Georgian England in 1797. So when an innocent (she believes) flirtation results in her being turned—by an absolute cad of a bloodsucker—she acquiesces to her family’s wishes and departs for Bath to take the waters, the only known cure.
But what she encounters there is completely unexpected: perilous jealousies and further betrayals, a new friendship and a possible love. Yet all that must be put aside when the warring French invade unsuspecting Bath—and the streets run red with good English blood. Suddenly only the staunchly British Damned can defend the nation they love . . . with Jane Austen leading the charge at the battle’s forefront. (Summary from Goodreads)

My Thoughts: I really enjoyed this book. I only knew a little about Jane Austen's life but this kind of fit in with what I have heard. :) I liked the writing. I am beginning to like period stuff. Knowing a little about Austen's life I knew how the book would end but I didn't want it to, I was hoping for a twist. I grew to love the Damned. I would definitely recommend!!

    I've heard a bit about this one, and glad to hear you enjoyed it. I feel like some of the "and zombies" or with vampires stuff is getting a little overdone, but I like that this one adds paranormal to the actual life of Jane Austen rather than just revamping (pardon the pun) her work.
