About the Book
Dumped because he wasn’t good enough for her high-and-mighty family, Rick left, swearing he’d never return. Eight years later, he’s an Acquisition Manager for the prestigious Pemberley Estates Corporation, traveling the world and loving his life. Then he accidentally runs into his old love and feelings he thought were long gone come rushing back. But he’s determined to resist. She dumped him once; he won’t let her the chance to do it again, no matter how badly his heart wants to be hers.
“Persuading Her” is a stand-alone, clean/sweet, second-chance romance with a guaranteed happily ever after, plus with some other Austen characters sprinkled in. It tells the tale completely from Rick’s side. Check out the companion novel for Anne’s side.
In My Opinion
Perhaps it is the freedom the author has to explore new aspects of a beloved story or maybe the new point of view, but whatever it is, I thoroughly enjoyed reading Keena Richins’ Persuading Her.
In this book, readers get to climb inside Rick Wentworth’s head and feel what he’s feeling, see his heart. A great addition to this tale is more insight into Sophy (Rick’s sister) and her husband’s relationship. These two live relationship goals, plus Sophy gives some good advice when it’s most needed.
As Rick comes to realize his pride and anger at his past rejection just might cost him the only woman he’s never loved, readers get a fresh perspective in this modern-day Persuasion retelling from the hero’s side of things.
And with a few more Austen names peppered into the pages, I’m guessing there will be more Jane Austen fun coming from Richins in the future.
