Mr. Darcy’s Ardent Love by John Edwards

Mr. Darcy only needed a few hours in the coach leaving Netherfield to regret his earlier decision. He and his friend’s sisters had convinced Mr. Bingley to leave Netherfield, telling him that Miss Jane Bennet did not show in her countenance any signs of sincere affection toward him. Darcy believed he would be safe from Miss Elizabeth Bennet, Jane’s younger sister, if he was physically removed from Netherfield. Now Darcy saw her everywhere and longed for her as he had never done before with any other woman. While coming into Kent to visit his aunt at Rosings, Darcy learned that Elizabeth was staying nearby at the parsonage in Hunsford. He saw this as a sign that God had willed her presence and that he could propose to her and thus end his suffering. A fortunate stumble at Rosings Park convinced him that Elizabeth’s affections were absent. Soon he would have a second chance to win her heart.  Neither Darcy nor Elizabeth understood the depth of each other’s regard for the other, but despite circumstances that were working against them, other events soon would change everything between Elizabeth and Darcy.

Mr. Darcy’s American Cousin: The Story of Mr. Brightstone by John Edwards

It was in England at the Darcy estate of Pemberley that Mr. Brightsome’s uncle first told his nephew to be cautious in matters of the heart. His uncle’s words he never forgot, “Do not ever rush into a romance, and if you find yourself involved, be cautious. If you are to fall in love, let it be with a lady who absolutely makes you happy and you know for sure loves you in return. You are one day to be a very rich man so you should keep these things to yourself. There will be times after you are married to reveal your wealth, but certainly not before.”

It was with that backdrop that Mr. Brightsome arrived in 1790s Philadelphia to begin his new life and new business. Soon a lady caught his eye and stirred his heart for the first time. But his uncle’s words begged him to be cautious and his inexperience with women did not help him. He did not know love but he did know that he needed it, and soon.

Almost his parallel in matters of the heart, Miss Jenny Thompson was torn by her family’s desires for her to see only gentleman, for they thought Mr. Brightsome was beneath them. But things changed suddenly and excitement, both good and bad, was in the waiting for these clueless persons as they struggled with these new emotions that were consuming them.

Mr. Darcy’s First Elizabeth by John Edwards

Young Darcy knew the moment he met the sweet and beautiful Elizabeth Watkins that one day he would marry such a woman, and his father had told him to look for just such a woman for a wife. Miss Watkins had earlier met John Winstead, but she and young Darcy bonded closely, and remained good friends, so it was not a surprise that years later he went to Elizabeth to seek her advice on another Elizabeth he had met in Hertfordshire. This “WHAT IF” variation of Jane Austen’s classic, addresses that Mr. Darcy may have always been looking for his own Elizabeth, albeit, modeled after Miss Elizabeth Watkins, Darcy’s first Elizabeth.

Murder at Longbourne by John Edwards

Mr. Darcy was back in London when he received Charles Bingley’s letter telling about a murder that had taken place at Longbourn. Bingley asked him to return immediately to help with this tragedy. The letter informed him that the Bennets were grieving and would never be the same.

Frightened that Miss Elizabeth Bennet may have been the victim, Darcy left early the next morning and raced to return to Netherfield to see Bingley, but first he went to Longbourn. There, without having to ask, he knew that Miss Elizabeth Bennet, the spirited young woman that had stolen his sleep since he first saw her, was indeed the victim. This beautiful woman he had been searching for since he met Miss Elizabeth Watkins when he was but nine years, now he knew he had lost her too. But Elizabeth was not the victim, as Darcy found out later that day.

Darcy makes the decision to hire investigators and security men to assist in the investigation but continues to search for the killer after another man has been arrested. Darcy’s actions and his determination work well to change local perceptions of his character, but would it be enough to catch the killer and win Elizabeth’s love?

Summer’s End: A Reimagining of Pride and Prejudice by Tish Elham

England in the long hot summer of 1939…A country house party gathers. Rich, privileged young people idle their time away without a care in the world, much to the disgust of one of their neighbours. Unlike the London socialites at Netherfield Park, Elizabeth Bennet is all too conscious of what is happening in the world beyond Meryton and has little time for people with such frivolous lives and certainly not for one rather haughty young man in particular. Fitzwilliam Darcy doesn’t appear to be enjoying his stay in Meryton and he soon provokes Elizabeth’s annoyance with his dismissive attitude towards her concerns.

However, the storm clouds of war are gathering over Europe and as the summer ends, the lives of Elizabeth and Darcy will change forever. The summer of 1940 will bring the war very close to home and, pitched into a nation’s desperate battle for survival, Elizabeth and Darcy will come to look at their lives and each other very differently.

‘Summer’s End’ is the first book in a trilogy which will span the years from 1939 to 1945. Book Two, ‘The Winter Moon’, will continue the story.

To be Mistress of Pemberley by Charlotte Elliot

Mr Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet had thought never to see one another again after Mr Darcy’s disastrous proposal at Rosings Park. So when her aunt and uncle suggest they take a tour of Pemberley, Mr Darcy’s ancestral home, only the reassurance that he is away convinces her to agree. Needing some time alone, she takes advantage of her aunt and uncle’s absence to explore the countryside around Lampton, when a storm obliges her to take shelter in the woods near Pemberley. As the storm worsens, Elizabeth is injured and is trapped in the woods with no way of returning to the inn where her aunt and uncle are staying.

Mr Darcy thought to take advantage of the fine weather to return to Pemberley a day early, to attend to some business with his steward. But the sudden outbreak of a storm obliges him to take a shortcut through the woods. There, he encounters the unconscious form of the lady he thought never to see again. Being too far from Pemberley, he is obliged to take her to a nearby cabin, where he must tend to her injuries. There, they spend the night alone together.

The pair agree that they should pretend Elizabeth was alone in the cabin, and Mr Darcy stayed elsewhere, to save Elizabeth’s reputation and prevent her being forced into a marriage with a man she does not love. But once at Pemberley, Miss Caroline Bingley grows suspicious that Elizabeth was not so alone after all. Determined to smear her rival’s reputation, she returns to the cabin and discovers proof that Elizabeth spent the night with a man. To her horror, Mr Darcy is forced to reveal himself as the man in question, and vows to marry Miss Bennet to save her reputation.

Can Mr Darcy prove that he has changed and is now worthy of Elizabeth’s love? And can Elizabeth overcome her prejudice and see the man he is now?

The arrival of Elizabeth’s sister Jane offers Mr Darcy the chance to put right one of his most regretful mistakes. And Elizabeth is forced to consider that there is nothing standing between her and happiness with the man she has grown to love than her own pride.

None but his unlikely mentor recognize the heartache and insecurity plaguing him as he shoulders the enormous burden of being Master of Pemberley.

Not all are pleased with his choice of adviser. Lady Catherine complains Darcy allows him too much influence. Lord Matlock argues, “Who is he to question the God-appointed social order?” But the compassionate wisdom Darcy finds in his counselor keeps him returning for guidance even though it causes him to doubt everything he has been taught.

In the midst of his struggles to reinvent himself, his school chum, Charles Bingley, arrives. Darcy hopes the visit will offer some respite from the uproar in his life. Instead of relief, Darcy discovers his father’s darkest secret staring him in the face. Pushed to his limits, Darcy must overcome the issues that ruined his father and, with his friends and mentor at his side, restore his tarnished birthright.

The Future Mrs. Darcy (Given Good Principles Book 2)  by Maria Grace

The regiment has come to camp in Meryton. Many young ladies are pleased, but not all share their enthusiasm. Among them, Mr. Carver, who decides to remove his family from Meryton’s savage society. He puts the blame, not on the militia officers, but on the shoulders of the Bennet family. The flirtations and boisterous ways of the youngest sisters are too much to be borne. Not even Jane’s renowned beauty and charm can make up for them.

Elizabeth denies the allegations at first, but rapidly uncovers the shocking truth. The Carvers are not the only family to cut the Bennets from their acquaintance. Their reputations have been materially damaged and the family borders on social ruin.

The news is too much for Mrs. Bennet who collapses from the shock. So, Elizabeth and her sisters must manage the estate until she recovers, a task for which none of them is prepared. Their duty becomes more challenging when Mr. Bennet is called away on business and allows Lydia to stay with the colonel’s wife, surrounded by officers.

Twelfth Night at Longbourn (Given Good Principles Book 4)  by Maria Grace

Twelfth Night—a night for wondrous things to happen.

At least for other people.

In the months after her sisters’ weddings, nothing has gone well for Kitty Bennet. Since Lydia’s infamous elopement, her friends have abandoned her, and Longbourn is more prison than home. Not even Elizabeth’s new status as Mrs. Darcy of Pemberley can repair the damage to Kitty’s reputation. More than anything else, she wishes to leave the plain ordinary Kitty behind and become Catherine Bennet, a proper young lady.

Her only ray of hope is an invitation to Pemberley for the holidays. Perhaps there she might escape the effects of her sister’s shame.

Getting to Pemberley is not as simple as it sounds. First she must navigate the perils of London society, the moods of Georgiana Darcy, and the chance encounter with the man who once broke her heart. Perhaps though, as Catherine, she might prove herself worthy of that gentleman’s regard.

But, in an instant all her hopes are dashed, and her dreams of becoming Catherine evaporate. Will Kitty Bennet’s inner strength be enough to bring her heart’s desire?

On an ordinary night perhaps not, but on Twelfth Night, it just might be enough.

Snowbound at Hartfield by Maria Grace

Colonel Fitzwilliam should have been happy facing retirement. No more Napoleon, no more tromping the Continent, and his distant cousin had unexpectedly left him an estate. What was more, two of his favorite people, Darcy and Elizabeth, were travelling with him to visit his new home.

But the colonel wasn’t happy, not when he was forced to watch Darcy exchanging enamored glances with his wife. No, he wanted to pitch his cousin out the window. It didn’t help when Darcy kept lecturing him on the joys of wedded life— as if women like Elizabeth Darcy grew on every tree.

Then the snow started.

Now they were stranded at the home of George and Emma Knightley, another intolerable, blissfully wedded couple who wanted nothing more than to see his bachelor days come to an end. Thank heavens they never thought of matching him with the proud spinster who had also been caught in the storm. That would have been utterly intolerable.

Or would it?

Inspiration by Maria Grace

Gentleman artist Fitzwilliam Darcy had never been able to express himself in words, but with his brushes and paints, he expressed what few men ever could. When his flighty muse abandons him, though, he finds himself staring at blank canvases in a world that has turned bland and cold and grey.

Worried for his friend, Charles Bingley invites Darcy to join him in Hertfordshire, in hopes the picturesque countryside might tempt Darcy’s muse to return. The scheme works only too well. His muse returns, with a vengeance, fixated upon the one young woman in the county who utterly detests him.

Will his selfish disdain for the feelings of others drive her and his muse away or can he find a way to please this woman with the power to bring color and feeling back into his world?

Darcy and Elizabeth: Christmas 1811 Pride and Prejudice behind the scenes (Darcy Family Christmas Book 1)  by Maria Grace

Jane Austen never wrote the details of Christmastide 1811. What might have happened during those intriguing months?

Following the Netherfield ball, Darcy persuades Bingley to leave Netherfield Park in favor of London to avoid the match-making machinations of Mrs. Bennet. Surely, the distractions of town will help Bingley forget the attractions of Miss Jane Bennet. But Bingley is not the only one who needs to forget. All Darcy wants this Christmastide is to forget another Miss Bennet.

Can the diversions of London help Darcy overcome memories of the fine eyes and pert opinions of a certain Hertfordshire miss?

Without the Bingleys, the Bennets are left to the company of Mr. Collins and the militia officers—entirely suitable company, according Mrs. Bennet. Elizabeth disagrees, refusing an offer of marriage from the very eligible Mr. Collins. Mama’s nerves suffer horridly until Elizabeth follows her advice to make the most of the officers’ company.

Even Mr. Bennet seems to agree. So, whilst Jane pines for Bingley, Elizabeth admits the attentions of one agreeable Lt. Wickham. What possible harm can it cause, especially when her parents are so pleased?

A Jane Austen Christmas Regency Christmas Traditions (Jane Austen Regency Life Book 1)  by Maria Grace

Many Christmas traditions and images of ‘old fashioned’ holidays are based on Victorian celebrations. Going back just a little further, to the beginning of the 19th century, the holiday Jane Austen knew would have looked distinctly odd to modern sensibilities.

How odd? Families rarely decorated Christmas trees. Festivities centered on socializing instead of gift-giving. Festivities focused on adults, with children largely consigned to the nursery.  Holiday events, including balls, parties, dinners, and even weddings celebrations, started a week before Advent and extended all the way through to Twelfth Night in January. 

Take a step into history with Maria Grace as she explores the traditions, celebrations, games and foods that made up Christmastide in Jane Austen’s era. Packed with information and rich with detail from period authors, Maria Grace transports the reader to a longed-for old fashioned Christmas.

Darcy and Elizabeth: A Final Understanding by Marilyn Harper

Miss Elizabeth Bennet knew things had changed for the worse after her youngest sister had disgraced her family and eloped with the reprobate, George Wickham. After he refused to marry Lydia, only her Uncle Gardiner’s intervention saved the family as he found the couple and forced the marriage. The elopement had occurred just as Elizabeth realized that Fitzwilliam Darcy had gone from being the last man in the world that she would consent to marry to become the only man she had ever loved. Still, she believed that neither he nor any other respectable man would seek an alliance with any of the Bennet daughters. These were depressing times as thoughts of what might have been consumed her during the day and in her sleep. She thought of how she bitterly rejected Darcy’s proposal in Hunsford and knew from what she learnt later that she had badly misjudged him.

Darcy had never stopped loving Elizabeth Bennet but he had his own problems as others had plans that worked to keep him and his friends apart.

Darcy and Elizabeth: A Time to Love by Marilyn Harper

Fitzwilliam Darcy was at a low point in his life. He had proposed to Miss Elizabeth Bennet in Hunsford and she rejected him, even telling him that he was the last man in the world she would consent to marry. When he arrived in town he went to see his friend, Charles Bingley, to tell him that Elizabeth’s elder sister, Jane, loved Charles. After hearing this, Bingley told Darcy to leave his home. Darcy had lost his best friend and the only woman he had ever loved.

When he later returned to Pemberley, he had the surprise of his life when he nearly ran into Miss Elizabeth whilst she and her relatives were touring the gardens. She thought he hated her for rejecting his proposal, but when he asked her to introduce him to her relatives, she believed he had changed. Elizabeth saw a change in his countenance and knew that her feelings for him were changing. They had been changing ever since she read the letter that he wrote the night after his proposal. He gave it to her as she walked near Rosings the next morning.

She knew that Bingley had returned to Netherfield to be near Jane and she thought Darcy had spoken to him. Elizabeth had read Darcy’s letter many times and was ashamed of how she treated him that night and during his time at Netherfield.

She found him pleasantly agreeable as they put their minds together to determine what had happened to his and Bingley’s friendship. During one of their walks in the park they entered a portal to time and learned they were in America in the year 2012. How would they get along in 2012 and later when they returned home? They would soon have their answer.
