She’s a chef, what’s the worst that could happen? 

Rico Silva, that’s what.  

Being paired with a celebrity who was her first love, the man who ghosted her at the worst possible time in her life, only proves what Ashna has always believed: leaps of faith are a recipe for disaster.

But when their catastrophic first meeting goes viral, social media becomes obsessed with their chemistry. The competition on the show is fierce…and so is the simmering desire between Ashna and Rico.  Every minute they spend together rekindles feelings that pull them toward their disastrous past. Will letting go again be another recipe for heartbreak—or a recipe for persuasion…?

Darcy’s Last Kiss by Samantha Erin

My Dearest Elizabeth,

The days grow short and the spray grows colder, and the mood of the men is grim. Still, nothing can chill the warmth that floods my heart whenever I recall the feel of your hand atop my own in that sacred moment we shared. All about me the others are gathering small affects and murmuring beneath their breath all the things they wish they had said to loved ones back home. For my part, I wish nothing but that the sea would carry these words swiftly from my heart to your own, that we might commune in some fashion, however distant.

War comes for England, and Fitzwilliam Darcy, a young, landed gentleman, is not obligated, but volunteers to serve King and country for the honor of himself and his house. Meanwhile the woman he only just met has been left to puzzle out his character, who left her spurned but curious. In his absence she discovers he may be the man she could most love in all the world, and he learns to humble his pride and admit what was the truth since the moment he laid eyes on her: that he would love her, and her alone, until the day of his death.

They only hope that day is not too soon.

Darcy’s Last Kiss is a Pride & Prejudice variation which sets characters from Jane Austen’s perennial favorite in a new set of circumstances.

Jane in Love by Rachel Givney

A charming, romantic debut novel in which Jane Austen, heralded author, ends up time-traveling almost 200 years in the future. There she finds the love she’s written about and the destiny she’s dreamed of…but is it worth her legacy?

Bath, England, 1803. At 28, Jane Austen prefers walking and reading to balls and assemblies; she dreams of someday publishing her carefully crafted stories. Already on the shelf and in grave danger of becoming a spinster, Jane goes searching for a radical solution—and as a result, seemingly by accident, time-travels. She lands in…

Bath, England, present day. The film set of Northanger Abbey. Sofia Wentworth is a Hollywood actress starring in a new period film, an attempt to reinvent her flagging career and, secretly, an attempt to reinvent her failing marriage. When Sofia meets Jane, she marvels at the young actress who can’t seem to “break character,” even off set. And Jane—acquainting herself with the horseless steel carriages and seriously shocking fashion of the twenty-first century— meets Sofia, a woman unlike anyone she’s ever met before. Then she meets Fred, Sofia’s brother, who has the audacity to be handsome, clever, and kind-hearted.

What happens when Jane, against her better judgement, falls in love with Fred? And when Sofia learns the truth about her new friend Jane? And worst of all, if Jane stays with Fred, will she ever achieve her dream, the one she’s now seen come true?

Performing Jane: A Cultural History of Jane Austen Fandom by Sarah Glosson

Jane Austen has resonated with readers across generations like no other writer. More than two hundred years after the publication of her most celebrated novel, Pride and Prejudice, people around the world continue to honor “dear Jane.” In Performing Jane, Sarah Glosson explores this vibrant fandom, examining a long history of Austen fans engaging with her work, from wearing hand-­sewn bonnets and period-­appropriate corsets to creating spirited fanfiction and comical gifsets. Sophisticated and engaging, this study demonstrates that Austen fans of today have a great deal in common with those who loved the English novelist long before the term “fan” came into use.

Performing Jane analyzes three ways fans engage with Austen and her work: collecting material related to the writer, whether in physical scrapbooks or on social­-media platforms; creating and consuming imitative works, including fanfiction and modernized adaptations such as The Lizzie Bennet Diaries; and making pilgrimages to Steventon, Hampshire, Chawton Cottage, and even to annual meetings of Jane Austen societies. Key to Glosson’s exploration of Austen fans is the notion that all of these activities, whether occurring in private or in public, are fundamentally performative. And in counterbalance to studies that center on fans with a tendency to transform and disrupt the original text, this study provides much-­needed understanding of a fandom that predominantly reaffirms Austen’s works.

Because Austen’s writing has bridged the realms of both literary and popular culture, this fandom serves as an excellent case study to understand the ways in which we draw distinctions between fandom and other forms of intensive engagement and, more importantly, to appreciate how fluid those distinctions can be. Performing Jane embraces a holistic view of the long history of Austen fandom, relying on archival research, literary and visual analyses, and ethnographic study. This groundbreaking book not only demonstrates the ways in which fan practices, today and in the past, are performative, but also provides fresh perspectives into fandom and contributes to our understanding of the ways readers engage with literature.

Officer Darcy by Sophia Grey

What if the reputation of the Bennet sisters was ruined forever by Lydia’s selfish actions? Could Elizabeth ever trust a member of the militia ever again?

After her youngest sister’s disgrace at the hands of one Mr. George Wickham, Elizabeth Bennet has vowed never to trust a military-minded man. She and her sisters do their best to raise Lydia’s child in the relative seclusion of their country home and the society of Hertfordshire seems to continue on without them.

But when Elizabeth receives a rare invitation to an assembly, she is reluctantly introduced to an officer from Derbyshire who may very well hold the key to resurrecting the Bennet family’s honor—and the key to Elizabeth’s heart.

Being able to trust the dashing officer is one thing, but is it too late to bring her family back from the brink and set things right?

Officer Darcy is a sweet, clean Pride and Prejudice Variation romance that is suitable for all lovers of Jane Austen’s classic.

Forced to wear Anne’s old clothes and to answer to her name, Elizabeth does everything she can to escape from her prison, but Lady Catherine’s madness is impenetrable.

When Mr. Darcy arrives to visit his aunt, Elizabeth tries to signal him from the tower window, and he sees her, but it is all for naught when he, too, is dragged to the tower and imprisoned. After all, Lady Catherine always did have plans for Mr. Darcy and her daughter.

Master of Longbourn: A Sequel to Mr. Darcy’s Comfort (Dash of Darcy and Companions Collection Book 10) by Leenie Brown

From awkward and unlovable to handsome and loved.

Large, awkward, unlovable, and destined to fail — that is who William Collins has always been told he was, and while he might have accepted the first three monikers, he’s worked hard to ensure the last one does not become true.

Kitty Bennet has never lacked for attention from gentlemen, but while she’s proficient at flirting, she has never had her heart touched by any of the potential suitors who have sat in Longbourn’s sitting room.

That is her heart was never touched until now when the awkwardly endearing heir to Longbourn takes up residence in her home. But how does one encourage a gentleman to love her when he’s seemingly unaffected by fluttering lashes and demure looks?

And how can someone as inept, as Collins thinks he is, ever win the heart of a lady as charming as Kitty Bennet?

It will take determination and a little help as well as the realization that sometimes the battle for the heart is played out in the mind.

Master of Lonbourn is part of Leenie Brown’s Dash of Darcy and Companions collection of Pride and Prejudice inspired novellas. If you like well-written sweet romance featuring an unlikely hero who must blossom from ugly duckling to majestic swan, then you will love this story about Collins overcoming the edicts of his father to become what he wishes to be while claiming the lady who is the desire of his heart.

Shy Georgiana Darcy has been content to remain unmarried, living with her brother and his new bride.

Spirited Away by Alix James

When doing the right thing goes utterly wrong.

Elizabeth Bennet cannot rid herself of the strange feeling she has whenever she is around Mr. Darcy—and it has nothing to do with the fact that he is irresistibly handsome and intelligent. Almost nothing, anyway. People around town are disappearing, and no one seems to know why. And who was that woman Mr. Darcy was hiding at the Meryton Inn? Elizabeth has questions, and Mr. Darcy refuses to answer them.

Fitzwilliam Darcy hates deception and disguise, but to protect his cousin, that is precisely what he must do. It troubled his conscience to keep certain matters from his aunt, Lady Catherine de Bourgh, even temporarily. Lying to Elizabeth Bennet, however, is robbing him of his sanity. Of all the women in Hertfordshire who might challenge him over missing persons, why did it have to be the one who had captured his heart and mind?

In the absence of good information, dark suggestions soon populate the town’s imagination. And when another young lady goes missing, will the town turn on Darcy, or will the truth come out—no matter who it exposes?

Will their passionate interlude in the woods lead to something more? Or will this be the only opportunity Elizabeth has to feel his strong arms around her, and to experience his lips on hers?

This is a short novelette of 8,000 words.

Persuading Miss Mary (Marrying Elizabeth Book 4) by Leenie Brown

In society’s eyes, he’s got everything, but, in her estimation, he’s lacking the one thing she requires.

Reginald Arthur Fitzwilliam, Viscount Westonbury, has never met a lady like Mary Bennet. Most debutants would be happy to have his attention, and who could blame them? He’s titled, wealthy, charming, and handsome — everything one could want for in a husband unless you’re Mary Bennet.

From their first meeting when she scolded him for his behaviour and made it perfectly clear that she did not care one jot for his title or fortune, Wes has known that Mary is no standard-order, ton-approved debutant. She is something far better. She is a lady who sees him for himself and not his accouterments.

However, there are two things that Mary Bennet absolutely despises — a flagrant disregard for the rules of propriety and disrespect, and Lord Westonbury, who has treated her sisters ill, embodies both. She would rather he ignored her, but sadly he seems bent on provoking her at every turn. It is, therefore, with trepidation that her father allows her to accompany her sister to town.

When Wes discovers that his mother is hosting Mary and her sister at Matlock House, he sets about the task of persuading Mary that he is not so bad as she thinks, for he would dearly love to court her. However, he will soon discover that even his charm is not going to be enough to sway her. She demands more than pretty words, which will require him to take a serious look at his life of pleasure and weigh it against those demands and his growing love for her. But can he make the necessary changes to prove his devotion, and if he can make them, will they be enough? Or will he always be found wanting in her eyes?

Persuading Miss Mary is the fourth installment in Leenie Brown’s Pride and Prejudice variation series Marrying Elizabeth.  If you like enemies to lovers romances, then you’ll enjoy this story about a charming rascal and a prim and proper miss discovering that sometimes love requires more from a person than he or she ever imagined it would.

So, put the kettle on, grab your copy of Persuading Miss Mary, and join Wes and Mary as they argue and struggle along their road to a very sweet happily ever after.

The Pemberley Ball by Regina Jeffers

Elizabeth Bennet’s acceptance of his hand in marriage presents FITZWILLIAM DARCY a hope of the world being different. Elizabeth offers warmth and naturalness and a bit of defiance; but there is vulnerability also. With characteristic daring, she boldly withstood Caroline Bingley’s barbs, while displaying undying devotion to her sister Jane. More unpredictably, she verbally fenced with the paragon of crudeness, his aunt, Lady Catherine, and walked away relatively unscathed. One often finds his betrothed self-mockingly entertaining her sisters and friends, and despite Darcy’s best efforts, the woman makes him laugh. She brings lightness to his spirit after so many years of grief.

Unfortunately for ELIZABETH BENNET, what begins gloriously turns to concern for their future. She recognizes her burgeoning fears as unreasonable; yet, she cannot displace them. She refuses to speculate on what Mr. Darcy will say when he learns she is not the brilliant choice he proclaims her to be. Moreover, she does not think she can submit to the gentleman’s staid lifestyle. Not even for love can Elizabeth accept capitulation.

Will Elizabeth set her qualms aside to claim ‘home’ in the form of the man she truly affects or will her courage fail her? Enjoy a bit of mayhem that we commonly call “Happily Ever After,” along with three alternate turning points to this tale of love and loss and love again from Austen-inspired author, Regina Jeffers.

The Road to Understanding: A Tale of the Taming of a Shrew, First Impressions, and a Bit of Pride and Prejudice by Regina Jeffers

DARIUS FITZWILLIAM’s life is planned down to who he will marry and where he will live, but life has a way of saying, “You don’t get to choose.” When his marriage to his long-time betrothed Caroline Bradford falls through, Darius is forced to take a step back and to look upon a woman who enflames his blood with desire, but also engenders disbelief. Eliza Harris is everything that Darius never realized he wanted.

ELIZA HARRIS is accustomed to doing as she pleases. Yet, despite being infuriated by his authoritative manner, when she meets the staunchly disciplined Captain Fitzwilliam, she wishes for more. She instinctively knows he is “home,” but Eliza possesses no skills in achieving her aspirations.

Plagued with misunderstandings, manipulations, and peril upon the Great Valley Road between eastern Virginia and western Tennessee in the years following the Revolutionary War, Darius and Eliza claim a strong allegiance before love finds its way into their hearts.

This is a faith-based tale based on Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.

Five Pathways to Pemberley

It’s the best of all worlds.

Five short Pride & Prejudice variations by bestselling writer Abigail Reynolds gathered in one volume. Can Mr. Darcy win Elizabeth Bennet’s heart… or will they misunderstand each other forever? Can he stand by and watch Elizabeth lose everything she holds precious… including him?

Becoming Lady Darcy by Sara Smallman

As a direct descendant of Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet, Lady Elizabeth Darcy spent her childhood wandering the halls of Pemberley. Now a tourist attraction under the watchful eye of curator Joyce Hutchinson, every room contains reminders of the timeless love story as it seeps through the history of the great house.

Lizzy has given up trying to find love, but things get tricky once Hollywood director, Matthew Wickham, the father of her daughter Harriet, returns to the Derbyshire estate to begin filming Jane Austen’s classic novel, bringing with him a very famous, very aloof actor, who catches her eye. But Benn Williams has his own secrets, and Lizzy finds that history seems to be repeating itself, despite her attempts to resist it.

Dipping into key events in history, ‘Becoming Lady Darcy’ combines a variety of techniques to tell the story, as we move throughout the timelines of five obstinate headstrong girls who called Pemberley home.

Sophia, the Jacobean courtier, has a clever head and a smart mouth, but when the gaze of the King falls on her, she finds herself embroiled in courtly games and treasonous plotting.

Elizabeth, with her fine eyes, begins her tenure as mistress with the devoted Fitzwilliam by her side, but happily-ever-afters don’t always work out quite as we expect, and being Mrs Darcy proves trickier than she anticipated.

Mabel, only daughter of Fitzwilliam and Elizabeth, finds that her privileged upbringing leaves her yearning for adventure and looking for escape in the arms of a handsome gentleman in a seaside town.

Millicent, who lives lots of lives, must navigate the changing world at the turn of the twentieth century, and fight to save Pemberley from an uncertain future.

And then there is Lizzy, who realises that in order to embrace her future, she has to accept her past and realise that sometimes life, and love, have to be experienced without pride and prejudice getting in the way

But Anne is a de Bourgh, and life is never simple. Before long, she finds herself caught between the attentions of two very different men, and must choose if she will follow her heart or disoblige her family. One must be disappointed, and Anne has never been very practiced in the art of disobedience.
