Mercy s Embrace : Elizabeth Elliot's Story - So Rough a Course. Book in the Mercy's Embrace Series). 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.

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.
Reviews about Mercy's Embrace: So Rough a Course (7):
Clonanau
This is a continuation of Jane Austen’s Persuasion, focusing on Anne Elliot’s older sister Elizabeth. Fans of the classic Austen novel will be glad to see cameos of Anne and Captain Wentworth, as well as the continued stories of the other characters. While this imagining could be interesting, Elizabeth remains selfish and cold, so it’s hard to like her as a character. Even when these attributes are translated into strengths in the eyes of Patrick McGillvary, it’s still a little difficult to appreciate what he sees in her. The book introduces some new characters and follows so many different perspectives that it’s sometimes hard to keep track of the side stories that are going on, or why they’re important. Then the book just ended. Although it was called Part 1, I still assumed that this book would have a storyline, within the larger story arc, that would come to a conclusion. While I liked the idea of continuing the story from Persuasion and getting to know Elizabeth in a different light, I’m not sure it can hold my interest for another two books.

Unless it is made abundantly clear from the start - I don't think it's fair when the first book is giving away free but you have no ending.

This lovely Regency romp is a continuation of Jane Austen's Persuasion, featuring as heroine Elizabeth Elliot, Anne's older sister. The coldhearted beauty, full of nothing but social ambition, is in a desperate situation. The once favoured daughter of the vain and selfish Sir Walter Elliot is now apparently cast off by him as he tries to dodge creditors, so she has to rely on the charity of either Lady Russell or the just married Anne Wentworth. She needs to use the last vestiges of her social situation, cover desperately her lack of money and secure an eligible offer of marriage. But each of the gentlemen available make her want to dodge their presence and to fend off heir advances rather than embrace them: the foolish Mr. Rushworth, the lecherous and not even widowed Sir Henry Farley, and Mr. Elliot, her cousin who had snubbed her before and taken up her companion as his mistress. And she keeps stumbling into the aggravating, mocking Admiral McGillvary who has a Reputation, according to Lady Russell. Meanwhile, events (or rather, a man who finds her both admirable and likewise aggravating) conspire to lead her into a friendship with a penniless clerk by the name of Mr. Gill. As we read along, Elizabeth slowly learns to embrace some real values instead of empty social ambition and vanity; sheds some of her prejudices against hard work and lower birth, appreciating kindness and humor and warmheartedness instead. But will this be enough to redeem her at last and lead her to happiness?
This is a heartwarming story full of humor, bringing in secondary characters from Persuasion and Jane Austen's other novels as well as well-described original characters like the enigmatic Mr. Yee the Chinese butler or Estella Stevenson-Bragg the epitome of vulgar social climber. Admiral McGillwary, the hero is literally breathtaking as well - although apparently his intrigues to chase Elizabeth Elliot are coming to cause him grief!
I am very fond of redeemed rogue stories - in this book, there is a heroine waiting to be redeemed. This is only volume 1 of the story, but I have already come to root for her, and look forward to see her complete transformation into an admirable character.

Once again, Laura Hile has shown a mastery of the Jane Austen / regency style of writing. She has all the society mannerisms and etiquette and parlor banter, etc. down. The clothing, the meals, the customs, what's fashionable, and what's not. Her historical detail is clearly done with painstaking care. The story, too, is a la Austen, with many extra characters floating in and out, often with comic relief. (In truth, I found it hard to keep up with so many names, but this genre is not one in which I'm a very practiced reader.)

Despite the wonderful writing (including some very witty zingers that I'll be quoting in the future), I had a hard time connecting with the main character, Elizabeth. Until about the 80% mark, she was thoroughly unlikable to me. I stayed on largely to see what her love interest, Admiral McGillvary was up to, and he is definitely a charmer. Very clever. I'd totally be smitten with him, navy or no! At this point of the story, he's far and away too good for her.

Unfortunately, this love story is told over the course of three books, apparently, so there is no Happily Ever After ... yet! Time to download book 2!

The characters were scheming and self absorbed and prejudiced and had other shortcomings. I admired the butler more than the people in society in this book. The I got to the end and found it is not a stand alone story, but looks like I must buy two more books. I don't care enough about Elizabeth or Patrick to do that.

This was my second time reading this book after reading it when the first edition came out. And, just as before, I was caught up in this fabulous sequel to Jane Austen's persuasion focusing on a different Elliot sister.

The author remained true to the spirit of Austen's Persuasion and didn't try to make Elizabeth anything other than what she was- nor any of the other familiar characters. Her thoughts, experiences, failures, feelings, hidden strength and character, and a little growth were a compelling read.. I was enthralled with the emergence of the author's original and fantastic hero, Patrick McGillvary. He definitely gave the aloof and class conscious Elizabeth Elliot a run for her money. Seeing him stand true and hold his sense of mischief and humor during the start of their stormy romance was the best part. I also thoroughly enjoyed all the side elements particularly when it came to Sir Walter who is his own brand of snobbish trouble.

Austen fans who want a little something more once they've devoured or revisited Persuasion will find this one the perfect fit.

I liked this. It’s a fun take on Elizabeth Elliot and explores her story but this is really just the first third of the book.
