Of Family and Friendship: By Charm or By Choice? continues… (Pride and Prejudice Continues Book 2) by Shana Jefferis-Zimmerman
Of Family and Friendship (Book 2 of the Pride and Prejudice Continues series) is the sequel and conclusion to By Charm or By Choice? and both books together offer a satisfying journey beyond the ending of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and into the world of ‘happily ever after’. In By Charm or By Choice? Mrs. Darcy eagerly embraces her new life as a wife, sister-in-law, mistress, and mother. She helps her shy new sister-in-law prepare for her coming out with ease. But, Mrs. Darcy and her dear sister, Mrs. Bingley, are never free of the knowledge of their still precariously situated family. Longbourn is as entailed away as ever. Ultimately they are decided that they must offer assistance by means of their own improved circumstances. The chief of this assistance is offered to their sisters through the gift of dowries, encouragement of accomplishments, the offering of sound advice, and some fortunate matchmaking. But in stark contrast to the improving situations of the Darcys’ sisters, the still conniving Miss Bingley is as unmarried and lacking in prospects as ever! After continuing to cause trouble at Mr. Bingley’s new estate, Miss Bingley is banished to Pemberley where Mrs. Darcy faces a more formidable challenge to redirect Miss Bingley’s approach to husband hunting. And just when some progress with Miss Bingley may be on the point of being realized, the Darcys receive the dreadful news that their beloved cousin, formerly a colonel, but now Brigadier Fitzwilliam, was grievously injured in the Battle of Waterloo. He is soon brought to Pemberley where it is hoped that his health may be restored and his spirits lifted. In their desperation to be of use, the Darcys resort to an abhorrent disguise in order to establish their cousin in his long absent independence. With the continued improvements to Miss Bingley’s manner and temper, the Darcys are off to London to assist her in finding an establishment of her own or making an advantageous match.
In Of Family and Friendship, Mr. and Mrs. Darcy of Pemberley intend to host their remaining two unmarried, though accomplished, sisters as well as the now retired and recovered Brigadier Fitzwilliam in London for the social season. With any luck, Mrs. Darcy’s proficiency as a matchmaker may again be put to good use in helping all three form advantageous matches while still enabling them to marry for affection. Just as the season commences, the Darcys are surprised by a demand from Lady Catherine de Bourgh that she and her daughter, Miss Anne de Bourgh, be included in the Darcys’ plans. How will the sickly Anne de Bourgh perform during a London season? Can Mr. Darcy bear to watch his sister, Miss Darcy, receive a suitor? Is the last Miss Bennet quitting the sphere in which she was brought up by husband hunting within the Ton? The family party has many grand adventures as they enjoy the season with the rest of London society. Several family secrets are exposed including the Darcys’ own deception for assisting Brigadier Fitzwilliam financially following his grievous injuries in battle. Though an indisputable man of valour on the battlefield, can Brigadier Fitzwilliam press his own suit as a lover? Intriguing matches are made, a new baby is delivered, and the family suffers a loss to illness.
Of Family and Friendship is a sweet and clean Regency romance. It is a full length novel of 125,000 words.
In the Tower with Mr. Darcy (Happily Ever After Collection) by Valerie Lennox
Once upon a time, a girl was captured by a madwoman and imprisoned in a tower…
Lady Catherine de Bourgh is rumored to have been carried away by grief over the death of her daughter Anne. When Elizabeth Bennet is visiting her friend Charlotte in Kent, she hardly expects to be abducted by the woman and imprisoned in a tower, a replacement for the dead Anne de Bourgh herself.

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.

Readers who like high stakes, a healthy dollop of angst, and just a hint of heat will likely find this is just what they’ve been looking for.

Jane and the Prisoner of Wool House (Being a Jane Austen Mystery Book 6) by Stephanie Barron
In her sixth engrossing outing, Jane Austen employs her delicious wit and family ties to the Royal Navy in a case of murder on the high seas. Somewhere in the picturesque British port of Southampton, among a crew of colorful, eccentric, and fiercely individual souls, a killer has come ashore. And only Jane can fathom the depths of his ruthless mind….
Jane and the Prisoner of Wool House
“I will assert that sailors are endowed with greater worth than any set of men in England.”
So muses Jane Austen as she stands in the buffeting wind of Southampton’s quay beside her brother Frank on a raw February morning. Frank, a post captain in the Royal Navy, is without a ship to command, and his best prospect is the Stella Maris, a fast frigate captained by his old friend Tom Seagrave.
“Lucky” Tom — so dubbed for his habit of besting enemy ships — is presently in disgrace, charged with violating the Articles of War. Tom’s first lieutenant, Eustace Chessyre, has accused Seagrave of murder in the death of a French captain after the surrender of his ship.
Though Lucky Tom denies the charge, his dagger was found in the dead man’s chest. Now Seagrave faces court-martial and execution for a crime he swears he did not commit.
Frank, deeply grieved, is certain his friend will hang. But Jane reasons that either Seagrave or Chessyre is lying — and that she and Frank have a duty to discover the truth.
The search for the captain’s honor carries them into the troubled heart of Seagrave’s family, through some of the seaport’s worst sinkholes, and at long last to Wool House, the barred brick structure that serves as gaol for French prisoners of war.
Risking contagion or worse, Jane agrees to nurse the murdered French captain’s imprisoned crew — and elicits a debonair surgeon’s account of the Stella Maris’s battle that appears to clear Tom Seagrave of all guilt.
When Eustace Chessyre is found murdered, the entire affair takes on the appearance of an insidious plot against Seagrave, who is charged with the crime. Could any of his naval colleagues wish him dead? In an era of turbulent intrigue and contested amour, could it be a case of cherchez la femme … or a veiled political foe at work? And what of the sealed orders under which Seagrave embarked that fateful night in the Stella Maris? Death knocks again at Jane’s own door before the final knots in the killer’s net are completely untangled.
Always surprising, Jane and the Prisoner of Wool House is an intelligent and intriguing mystery that introduces Jane and her readers to “the naval set” — and charts a true course through the amateur sleuth’s most troubled waters yet.
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.
**Ms. Brown has reduced the price of all her novellas, novelettes, and novels to $2.99 USD or $3.99 USD. Several bundles have also been reduced.**

Frosted Windowpanes (A Touches of Austen Novelette)
