Overview

Elizabeth Elliot is as beautiful as ever, yet no gentleman of proper stature has requested her hand. Lady Russell claims she is too particular, but Elizabeth begs to differ. She is not about to settle for a gentleman of no distinction like her sister Mary. Nor will she follow her heart and marry a commoner with no title but Captain--that was Anne's mistake. As for romance and the tender stirrings of the heart, why, only a simpleton would fall prey to such foolishness! But when the proud Miss Elliot encounters a pair of smiling Irish eyes in a most unsuitable man of vulgar connections, she is tempted to change her opinion. Almost. Jane Austen's beloved Persuasion provides the backdrop for this delightful romp set in Regency England. So Rough a Courseis book 1 of Laura Hile's delightful series Mercy's Embrace: Elizabeth Elliot's story based on Jane Austen's Persuasion.

Editorial Reviews

Pamela Aidan
"The world of Jane Austen's Persuasion fairly sparkles under Laura Hile's deft and humorous touch. While Elizabeth Elliot retains the abrasive edges of Austen's original, you'll be as delighted as I was to see her develop into a woman deserving of a good man's love."
