An original prequel introducing Jayne Fresina’s charming, delightfully naughty new Regency Romance series. In the sleepy village of Hawcombe Prior, the five young ladies of the Book Club Belles Society are looking for their own leading men. When handsome, mysterious Darius Wainwright strolls into town, the Book Club Belles are instantly smitten with his brooding good looks and prideful demeanor. It’s as if he walked out of the pages of their favorite new novel, a scandalous romance called Pride and Prejudice. But Miss Justina Penny has a secret – she’s met this arrogant, brooding bachelor before. In Bath. The town, not the tub. Although, she was naked…

This playful short gives you the true story of how Justina and Darius meet—to find out what happens to this mis-matched pair purchase One Upon a Kiss.

Before the Kiss is the novella prequel to Once Upon A Kiss and is not necessary to read prior to OUAK but if you’re anything like me, you like as much detail as you can get, especially if it’s free! Before the Kiss gives us a little insight into how Justina and Darius first meet. Let me tell you, it’s a good story and definitely worth the quick read. And again…FREE on Amazon, B&N and iTunes!!
