Summary
Part comedy, part love story, part time-bending social commentary, Rude Awakenings of A Jane Austen Addict is the story of Jane Mansfield, a gentleman's daughter from Regency England who inexplicably awakens in the body and life of twenty-first-century Los Angeleno, Courtney Stone. Jane had long wished to escape the confines of a life where her only options were marriage or maiden aunt. But leaving 1813 England behind and awakening in a high-tech, low-morality world is quite shocking. Gone are the rolling lawns and hovering servants. The only thing that is familiar. and the only thing she seems to have in common with the strange woman in whose life she has mysteriously landed, is a love of Jane Austen. Jane finally has her first taste of privacy, independence, even the chance to earn her own money. But there are complications, like the job she knows nothing about, a dwindling bank account, and a pile of bills. Most confusing are her feelings for Courtney's friend Wes and ex-fiance Frank. And what is she to make of a world in which flirting and kissing and even the sexual act itself raise no matrimonial expectations?
Summary
In the sequel to <i>Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict</i>, nineteenth-century Jane Mansfield awakens in present-day Los Angeles and, while relishing her newfound privacy and independence, must learn to navigate through modern technology, the workplace, and confusing social practices
