This eagerly anticipated sequel to Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict asks the question, “Can a nineteenth-century girl survive in today’s morally confused modern-day world?”

Laurie Viera Rigler’s nationally bestselling debut novel, Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict, took twenty-first-century free spirit Courtney Stone into the social confines of Jane Austen’s era. Now, Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict tells the parallel story of Jane Mansfield, a gentleman’s daughter from Regency England who inexplicably awakens in Courtney’s overly wired and morally confused modern LA life.

For Jane, the modern world is not wholly disagreeable. She relishes the privacy, independence, even the power to earn her own money. But how is she to fathom her employer’s incomprehensible dictates about “syncing a BlackBerry”? How can she navigate a world in which flirting and kissing and even the sexual act itself raise no matrimonial expectations? Even more bewildering is the friend named Wes, who is as attractive and confusing to Jane as the man who broke her heart back home. It’s enough to make her wonder if she would be better off in her own time, where at least the rules are clear—that is, if returning is even an option.

    " Cute book. If you read the first one you know what is going to happen overall. It's more interesting than the first one because she has no way of knowing the inventions and differences of the future like Courtney did with the past. The journey is captivating in a way. She's so funny with things we all take for granted, like freedom, phones, cars, and independence. A funny take on a Jane Austen-inspired tale. "

    " I loved every minute of this book and it was a perfect, satisfying sequel to "Confessions..." It made me look at my own world through new eyes and I loved the philosophies of being in the now and awaking to the world around you. I enjoyed the first book and this one equally as much. Refreshing and different. I wasn't sure how things would end up but was left fully happy with the conclusion. This story is fun, romantic, empowering, and dreamy. I wish there were more books for me to read by this author, but this is it, for now. Guess it's time to read some of the real Jane Austin..... "
