OOOH. Jane Austen + Fantasy = Shades of Milk & Honey

“...the grace of Sense and Sensibility, a touch of classic fairy tale magic, and an action-packed ending” — Library Journal

According to Amazon: Jane and her sister Melody vie for the attentions of eligible men, and while Jane’s skill with glamour is remarkable, it is her sister who is fair of face. When Jane realizes that one of Melody’s suitors is set on taking advantage of her sister for the sake of her dowry, she pushes her skills to the limit of what her body can withstand in order to set things right—and, in the process, accidentally wanders into a love story of her own.

Read the first chapter of Shades of Milk & Honey on Mary Robinette Kowal's blog, right this second, and look forward to picking up the novel in August. Not a YA title, but will be enjoyed by those who are Jane-centric, I think.
