Dragons | Jane Austin > Jo Walton, Tooth and Claw.
[English translation: Dragons Jane Austinified results in Jo Walton's delightful Tooth and Claw. Slight, yes, but lots more fun than “Little Women”.]

Undeniably Jane Austen is in the mix, but according to Jo the primary inspiration was Anthony Trollope’s Framley Parsonage.
I never read much Trollope. When I lived in the UK Trollope was what every Tory MP with aspirations always said he had been reading, and it put me off the idea.
TOR, incidentally, is on a roll. I’m amazed that well more than half of the quality SF/Fantasy I’ve read in the past year was a TOR product.
You should also read Jo Walton’s _The King’s Peace_.
Damnedest version of the Tale of Sir Launcelot I have ever read…
