I listened to the first book (Darcy's Ultimatum) in Jennifer Joy's Cousins series late last year. Anne's Adversity is the second volume in the series.
In Darcy's Ultimatum, there's a scene in which Anne appears with a mysterious letter. We don't get to find out the contents until this book and it's quite a revelation but I won't give away any spoilers about it here. It results in a major split between Anne and her mother, the overbearing Lady Catherine de Bourgh. Anne ends up living in London and meeting a number of new people, including the rather delicious sounding French refugee Luc Mauvier, and his sister Adelaide.
This is the first JAFF story I've read, so far, that has Anne de Bourgh as a main character and it was really enjoyable. The narrator, Emma Lysy, did a pretty good job with the story, too. There was a problem with her pronunciation of Grosvenor (as in the Square of that name) but that's as nit-picky as I can get.
There's no explicit sexual scenes so I can recommend this book and/or audio to all audiences. The same goes for the first volume of this series. Both are definitely ones to add to your JAFF lists.
