New Release - My Mr. Rochester #5

My Mr. Rochester
L.K. Rigel

(Jane Eyre Retold - Serial)


I'm going to preface this post with a statement.
I've read this serial (currently reading #5) and have to say I have enjoyed every minute I've spent with it. This is one I highly recommend.


... the version all classic lovers know was buried behind an era's expectations. ~ KindleObsessed 

The classic Gothic tale set in a future utopia, retold in five episodes.

Episode 1:  In a country founded on biblical principals after the Second War Between the States, orphan Jane survives a harsh boarding school education to become a governess at a remote and beautiful estate.

Though plain and poor and without connections, Jane finds contentment in her new position ~ but a rough, mysterious stranger threatens the tranquility of mind she's fought so hard to achieve.

Episode 2: Jane has no intention of falling in love with Mr. Rochester, but as he draws her out, her attachment to him deepens. Still it's obvious Mr. Rochester prefers the company of a senator's daughter, the beautiful and accomplished Blanche Ingram ~ who seems determined to have Rochester for herself.

Jane tries to avoid Mr. Rochester, but when she saves him from an attack by a crazed servant, she comes perilously close to losing her heart to a man she can never have.

Episode 3: Things get steamy in Episode 3! A gypsy's visit brings out Mr. Rochester's trickster side. The fortune-teller has no charms for Blanche Ingram, but for Jane it's a different story altogether.

After a terrible night when Jane again comes to Rochester's aid, she finds solace and delight in his arms. She's called away to Gateshead where she makes a shocking discovery, but nothing is more astonishing than her homecoming to Thornfield.

Episode 4: Mr. Rochester draws Jane closer, using physical intimacy to strip away her defenses. She finds herself more dependent on him every day ~ but is it love or mere desire that binds them?

Jane feels increasingly overpowered by Rochester's personality and will. When the devastating secret of Thornfield Hall is exposed, she may not be able to save herself.

Episode 5: 
After Mr. Rochester's ghastly betrayal, Jane flees Thornfield and finds a home, career, family, and independence she's always wanted. But when a handsome and righteous young man offers a respectable but loveless marriage, Jane can't forget her former master.

Jane's dreams of Rochester invade her waking hours and drive her back to Thornfield where she finds more than the Hall in ruins. To reclaim the man she loves, she'll have to risk everything she's fought so hard to win.
