Still, if you are one of those, who have kept wondering about their lives and love after marriage, or, those of the other characters, then this is the perfect book for you.

The story continues in the hallowed grounds of Pemberley, Darcy’s exquisite estate with his beautiful and forever witty companion, Elizabeth. Keep reading!

Excerpt:
He [Darcy] had settled in his own mind that the new rector should be under forty, of superior birth, breeding and education, a scholar without pedantry, or irreproachable life, but not too exigent in matters affecting the usages of the polite world, and preferably married to a gentlewoman who would be acceptable to the ladies of Pemberley, his wife Elizabeth and his sister Georgiana. These demands appeared to him to be so moderate that he was hopeful of their attainment without difficulty or much delay. But that he should have exactly the sort of man he wanted he was thoroughly determined…

The Secrets of Pemberley by Anna Harlow

Amnesia. A secret baby. A kidnapping. Seemingly endless mysteries to solve.

Elizabeth Bennet volunteers to become a governess in order to help raise an unwanted baby girl born to her sister Lydia and the dastardly Mr. Wickham.

Her plans, along with her unmarked coach, are derailed and she loses her memories from the terrible accident.

Mr. Darcy comes across an unknown injured woman and an infant, and insists upon taking them back to Pemberley to recover.

He does not expect to develop feelings for her, and finds it inopportune with her social status being unknown.

But she falls head over heels for him too, and they decide to marry.

When Lizzy’s identity is revealed, as well as the true parentage of the child in her care, Mr. Darcy realizes that it is connected to the same scheme that befell his sister,

Georgiana. Mr. Wickham seduced her with false promises and then sold her son, whom Darcy has been trying to locate for months.

Will they be able to outsmart Mr. Wickham so that no more children suffer the same fate?

***The Secrets of Pemberley is a sensual romance featuring Our Dear Couple in this Pride & Prejudice Variation, and it’s over 50,000 words long.***

Travels with Mr Bennet: Further extracts from the journals of Mr. Bennet, of Longbourn by Ronald McGowan

When Dr Morland recommends a warm climate for Mrs Bennet’s condition, and news comes from Corfu that Lydia and Wyckham will be in Venice during the summer, the Bennets set off to meet her, accompanied by the Darcys, the Morlands, Young Frank Darcy and Wilhelmina Tilney, Catherine Morland’s daughter. Their adventures on the way and back again provide a fitting sequel to ‘Our Neighbours’ Sport Beyond the Seas.

Darcy’s Alibi: A Sweet Pride and Prejudice Variation by Abbey North

A murder in Meryton leads to Lizzy becoming Darcy’s Alibi.
When Wickham is discovered with a knife through his heart—and the hilt has the Darcy crest—suspicion immediately turns to Mr. Darcy. Lizzy soon learns who the real killer was, and the circumstances of why, and she is forced to act to save the culprit and Mr. Darcy. She claims she spent the night with him at Netherfield, thus besmirching her reputation and ensuring utter ruin unless Darcy offers marriage. He does, but he believes she is the murderer, and he holds her at arms’ length, clearly not trusting her. Lizzy is miserable in their marriage, but telling the truth betrays the trust of another. How can she get Fitzwilliam to see past his assumptions and allow them to have a genuine marriage built on love and respect?

While Abbey sometimes writes steamy JAFF, this is strictly SWEET. There is one fade-to-black scene between the married couple.

Shadow of Darcy: A Paranormal Pride and Prejudice Variation by Abbey North

Will Lizzy lose her heart or her life to the enigmatic Mr. Darcy?
Lizzy is the newest instructor at Netherfield Academy, and strange noises have her searching the corridors of the drafty old castle to discover the source. The previous headmaster disappeared under strange circumstances, and when his replacement, Mr. Darcy, catches her in the corridors, he warns her. The first time. The next time, he kisses her, and she sees something different about him. Darcy is as mysterious as the surroundings, and she fears for her life, her sanity, and her heart as she strives to resist the pull he exerts on her.

This is a paranormal take on ODC with a strong dash of gothic as well.

While Abbey sometimes writes sweet JAFF, this is strictly SENSUAL.

The Surprising Mr Bingley by Rose Raven

When Mr Charles Bingley took the lease of Netherfield Park, he did not expect to meet the woman of his dreams.

Miss Jane Bennet was all that was beautiful, demure and accommodating.

But could she accommodate Mr Bingley’s surprisingly kinky tastes? Of her own free will?

This is a short, steamy romance not suitable to people under the age of 18.

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

A Prayer and Praise: A Jane Austen Devotional by Shannon Winslow

Did you know that Jane Austen wrote prayers in addition to her six classic novels? She was not only a woman of celebrated humor, intellect, and insight; she was a woman of faith.

Prayer & Praise is a treasure trove of thought-provoking messages inspired by the lines of Austen’s three preserved prayers. Atop a solid foundation of scripture, these 50 devotional segments (each finishing with prayer and praise) enlist familiar characters and situations from Austen novels to illustrate spiritual principles – in creative, often surprising, ways!

Which one of Austen’s characters developed a god complex? Who was really pulling Henry Crawford’s strings? Where do we see examples of true repentance, a redeemer at work, light overcoming darkness? With a Biblical perspective, Austen’s beloved stories reveal new lessons about life, truth, hope, and faith.


What an exciting list! I’ll be updating the pre-order and new release pages throughout the month so be sure to check them out! I hope everyone has a delightful weekend!
