The following are books I have found for $2.99 USD with author names from M to P. This list is a work in progress and is frequently updated.
An Alternate Perspective by Wynne Mabry
A strange machine in the library. Things which are not as they should be, including an exceptionally nice Mr. Darcy. Cast into another reality, Elizabeth is at first perplexed, and then astounded once she learns what has happened. In the reality from which she came, another Elizabeth wants very much to go home. But while she is there, perhaps she might exert a little influence on a Mr. Darcy who seems to be in need of some guidance.
Christmas in Derbyshire by Wynne Mabry
After making a swap with his aunt, Mr. Darcy ends up with Mr. Collins as the rector of Kympton. It is not the most ideal of arrangements, but he has his reasons for being quite satisfied, even before his new clergyman’s pretty cousin comes to visit. At the first sight of her, his heart is captivated, and nothing will be the same again.
Elizabeth Bennet has heard of Mr. Darcy. From the reports of her cousin and Mrs. Collins, she is expecting a proud, distinguished and reserved man. When he turns out to be warm and thoughtful, she does not mind the loss of an opportunity for interesting observation. Falling in love is much more satisfying than making sport of one’s neighbours.
With romance in the air, and a large house party descending upon Pemberley, this is going to be their best Christmas ever. A few little problems will not divert the course of true love or dampen the spirit of Christmas.
A Hasty Decision by Wynne Mabry
Devasted by Elizabeth’s refusal of his proposal, Mr. Darcy makes a hasty decision. After all, if he cannot have the lady he loves, it little matters whom he marries. Or so he thinks at the time. It is not long before he regrets his choice, but there is no turning back. As a miserable marriage threatens his own happiness and his sister’s, he finds comfort in friendships, including an unexpected one with Elizabeth. When the unthinkable happens, she remains a loyal and valued friend. But what will it take for them to have a second chance at happiness?
Imprisoned with Mr. Darcy by Wynne Mabry
Locked in a dungeon with Mr. Darcy, Elizabeth has ample opportunity to discuss all her grievances with him. Eventually they are discovered, but the unfortunate circumstances result in an engagement. This arrangement is a complex one, intended to be dissolved at the right moment, but Elizabeth soon wonders if she really wants to be released from it.
The Last Miss Bennet by Wynne Mabry
As all five Bennet sisters pursue their dreams, hopes are formed and dashed and then revived. One at a time, Elizabeth’s sisters marry until she is the last Miss Bennet. The round of weddings begins with an unexpected union for Mary, which changes her outlook on life. Jane’s happiness is reclaimed, and Kitty finds love along with some much-needed good sense.
No family is without its troubles though, and Lydia can be counted on to provide those. Her foolishness threatens to stand in the way of Elizabeth’s matrimonial happiness, but it also serves to create new bonds between sisters who have not always been close.
More than Admiration by Wynne Mabry
While on holiday, Elizabeth Bennet and her aunt and uncle save Georgiana Darcy from the clutches of Mr. Wickham and Mrs. Younge. Mr. Darcy, shocked to have his sister’s errors known to strangers, fails to convey any gratitude, and Elizabeth is left with a poor impression of him. Through letters to Georgiana, however, she learns to view him in a different light. His later appearance in Meryton comes as a pleasant surprise, and she gets to know him better when he stays at Netherfield. They become close, but can she believe that he really loves her and is not swayed by his sister’s feelings? And what will happen when Mr. Wickham reappears and threatens her dear friend’s reputation and her own happiness?
Pride and Prejudice and Prudence by Wynne Mabry
When Mr. Darcy insults Elizabeth at the assembly, he finds himself on the receiving end of a swift sharp kick. A young girl is determined to take him to task for his behaviour. Despite her audacity, he finds himself liking Miss Prudence. She sends him to apologize, but it is too late for that. Now Elizabeth does not want to dance with him.
It is never too late to change, however. With Prudence as his mentor, Mr. Darcy begins to correct his flaws and make an effort in society. His efforts are noted by Elizabeth, who gradually softens toward him. They make up their quarrels and are on a path toward romance, but then trouble arrives, and Mr. Darcy has new problems to contend with.
Elizabeth Bennet’s Epiphany by Karis Marie
Mr. Darcy has learned that Miss Elizabeth Bennet, the young woman he loves, has not been feeling well and so he came to the parsonage in Hunsford to visit with her. Once there he made such an ill conceived proposal that she rejected and then blamed him for his actions in separating his friend, Charles Bingley, from the woman he loved, Miss Jane Bennet. Jane Bennet was Elizabeth’s eldest sister and best friend and Elizabeth had learnt earlier that day how Mr. Darcy had happily separated the couple and even bragged that he had done so.
Their meeting went nowhere but Darcy was not a man to give up easily and so he wrote her a letter explaining some things he had never told her. Would he be successful in winning her love?
The book takes a few twists and turns from Miss Austen’s masterpiece as other events beyond Darcy and Elizabeth’s control change them forever. I hope you enjoy my story as the main characters meet and begin to understand one another under very different circumstances.
Mr. Darcy’s Foreboding by Glenna Mason
At the Meryton Assembly early in Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, the proud Fitzwilliam Darcy calls Elizabeth Bennet, everyone else’s belle of the ball, “tolerable”. She hears him, unleashing a prejudice, which takes most of the novel to assuage.
Yet, in Mr. Darcy’s Foreboding, a series of mysterious incidences conspire to create a more rapid repair of their initial relationship. What are these villainous conundrums?
Are the same old nemeses involved: Wickham, Caroline, Mr. Collins, Aunt Catherine, Lydia? If so, which ones, why and when? And what do they perpetrate? Kidnapping? Robbery? Or worse? Perhaps!
By the end of Mr. Darcy’s Foreboding a very prescient Fitzwilliam Darcy solves the enigmas, assisted by our favorites: Elizabeth, Bingley and Colonel Fitzwilliam. Mary, Anne, Georgiana, Kitty and of course Jane join with a bevy of new characters to enhance this soon-to-be classic mystery romance.
Mr. Darcy and the Lady with the Fine Eyes by Glenna Mason
What if Pride and Prejudice’s Mr. Darcy doesn’t meet Elizabeth Bennet until she travels to Derbyshire with her aunt and uncle? What if instead of disparaging her status, he doesn’t know it? What if Darcy is immediately enthralled by her fine eyes?
How does the story of their Pride and Prejudice romance proceed then? Does she still find him arrogant? Does he fall in love at first sight?
The Darcys and the Sirens’ Songs by Glenna Mason
The Darcys and the Sirens’ Songs is the fourth in a series about Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet. It has new characters, including the Darcys’ son and the daughters of Elizabeth’s sisters.
In this story the Darcys add a very special thoroughbred to their racing stable, Siren’s Song. She is not the only siren of course as Caroline and Lydia show up to add their usual destructive wails.
The Luck of Fitzwilliam Darcy by Glenna Mason
Darcy’s good fortune is tested time and again. There are of course his traditional nemeses: Caroline and Wickham. Wickham wishes to slice a scar across his face. Caroline continues her incessant obstruction to his peace. Even Lydia Bennet becomes a trial who forebodes disquiet to his equanimity.
And yet . . .
The Darcys Return to Pemberley by Glenna Mason
The Darcys Return to Pemberley is the second in multipart series about Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet. The first in the series is “The Luck of Fitzwilliam Darcy”.
In the first novel in this Pride and Prejudice Variation sequence, Elizabeth and Darcy meet. The novel is set in London and Hertfordshire. In this second installment, Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam–now married–return to Pemberley, where most of the novel takes place. Georgiana and a new beau are a centerpiece of this part of the story. New characters are introduced and beloved characters often appear, as well as the standard Darcy/Elizabeth nemeses.
The Darcys: As the Years Go By by Glenna Mason
As Time Goes By ends the seven part series of the Bennets and the Darcys. They take Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy through courtship and marriage along with their friends and family. Elizabeth’s sister Kitty marries Richard Fitzwilliam, Darcy’s cousin. Jane of course marries Charles. The series goes through the trials of dealing with Caroline Bingley and George Wickham and the always naughty Lydia Bennet. Children are born and grow into a big part of the later novels. The Darcys and the Bingleys become owners of thoroughbred horses and travel to find more, even to Kentucky and Virginia, and have a grand time watching them race.
This last novel, As Time Goes By, continues the theme of their love and companionship. It does not end in an ending but in new beginnings.
The Pleasure of Mr. Darcy’s Love by Glenna Mason
The Pleasure of Mr. Darcy’s Love begins two years after Darcy’s letter of explanation to Elizabeth. . . a time of great anguish for both.
These intervening years have brought immense changes in the lives of the all the Pride and Prejudice characters. Unsurprisingly, Jane and Bingley are now married, but all our other favorites are flung into unexpected lives. The Collins will no longer inherit Longbourn. Why? Where has Lydia disappeared to? How can she be found? Who tries to kidnap Georgiana? Will Elizabeth finally find pleasure in Mr. Darcy’s love or will Caroline and Wickham and perhaps even Lydia intercede?
A Compromise at Rosings Park by Isabelle Mayfair
Elizabeth Bennet’s stay at Hunsford Lodge is interrupted by a shocking marriage proposal from the man she dislikes most in the world; the proud and arrogant Mr Darcy. After rejecting him, she is required to follow him into the woods to return the hat he left behind, before it is discovered that he had visited her. She is shocked to see he is in far greater pain at her refusal than she realised and when she seeks to comfort him, he forgets himself and kisses her.
Unfortunately, Mr Collins, Elizabeth’s cousin, witnesses it and not recognising Mr Darcy, is pleased to inform Mr Darcy’s aunt, the formidable Lady Catherine de Bourgh of Rosings Park, that the pert Miss Bennet’s reputation has been compromised. It seems a fitting revenge for a woman who had rejected his own offer of marriage not so long ago.
But when Mr Darcy reveals himself as the man who compromised Miss Bennet, and is therefore the man who is required to marry her and save her reputation, Elizabeth is far from grateful. She, who always wanted to marry for love, is now obligated to marry a man she despises for his selfish disdain for others, and who has ruined the happiness of her most beloved sister.
Can Mr Darcy persuade her to give him a chance to prove himself worthy of her? And in Elizabeth’s pretence to her family of being a happily engaged woman, is it possible she is being fooled by her own charade into feeling more than she does? Or are these growing feelings for Mr Darcy something more than that?
At Longbourn, a scandal involving her sister, Lydia, threatens the match and Elizabeth is suddenly confronted with the possibility that maybe she does not know Mr Darcy as well as she believed. And that just maybe, he is the man for her after all.
An Encounter at Pemberley by Isabelle Mayfair
While touring Derbyshire with her aunt and uncle, Elizabeth Bennet is horrified to discover they intend to visit Pemberley, the home of Mr Darcy. She had hoped never to meet him again after rejecting his proposal months before. But assured that he is not home, Elizabeth decides to take the opportunity to explore Pemberley Woods while her aunt and uncle are out. There, alone in the woods, she is the victim of an accident.
Mr Darcy discovers her lying unconscious and must think quickly to get her to shelter before a storm begins. He takes her to his hunting lodge to tend to her injuries, realising he will have compromised her reputation and be obliged to marry her if word gets out. But Elizabeth is suffering from amnesia as a result of her accident and is intrigued by the kind, generous man who tends to her.
Is this Mr Darcy’s last chance to show her the man he can be? And as for Elizabeth, she is astonished to discover that the warm, caring man she’s starting to fall in love with was someone she disliked intensely before her accident. But just why was her dislike for him so strong?
When word gets out of them spending the night together, Lizzy’s reputation is compromised and the only way out is to agree to marry Mr Darcy. But can she accept him for the man he is now? And can she truly love a man she cannot remember?
Mr. Darcy’s Second Chance by Isabelle Mayfair
What would happen if Mr Darcy had failed to give Elizabeth Bennet the letter explaining his actions after his disastrous proposal at Rosings?
Shocked by Mr Darcy’s desire to marry her, and disgusted by his interference between Jane and Mr Bingley, Elizabeth leaves Kent for London the very next morning after his proposal. There, she hopes to comfort Jane, and enjoy spending time with the charming and newly single George Wickham who has also come to London to recover from the disappointment of ending his betrothal to Mary King.
Mr Darcy had been too shocked to respond to Elizabeth’s accusations during his proposal, but he is determined to clear his name. He sits up all night to write a letter explaining his actions regarding his treatment of Jane and Wickham, only to find that Elizabeth has already left for London. Knowing it is impossible for a gentleman to send a letter to a lady he is not engaged to without compromising her reputation, his only hope is that he will see her when he returns to his townhouse in London. Perhaps if they encounter one another enough, Elizabeth will see a new side to him and reconsider her opinion. And maybe he will have a chance to clear his name.
So he is horrified when he arrives in London and sees that Elizabeth and Wickham have resumed their friendship, and seem closer than ever. Has he left it too late? Is he about to lose the woman he loves to the man he despises most in the world; a man he knows to be utterly unworthy of her?
Elizabeth is embarrassed to see Darcy in London so soon after rejecting him. But London’s society is small, and the two are repeatedly thrown together. Seeing Darcy with his sister and friends opens her eyes to the possibility that maybe she has misjudged him after all. And spending so much time with both Darcy and Wickham makes her wonder if perhaps she has been too hasty in her judgement of both men’s characters.
Can the pair overcome their own pride and prejudice and find happiness together after all? Or will misunderstandings and the dishonourable intentions of others succeed in driving them apart?
Never So Bewitched by Any Woman by Isabelle Mayfair
Elizabeth Bennet’s stay in Gracechurch Street with her Aunt and Uncle Gardiner becomes even more enjoyable when she meets the handsome, charismatic George Wickham who is staying in London with his friend Denny, before accepting a commission with the militia. She also makes a new friend in Hyde Park, the young and innocent Miss Georgiana Darcy, who is waiting for her brother, Mr Darcy to join her in London. But Elizabeth soon suspects Wickham is not all he seems, and while seeking to engage her affections, also has designs on her wealthy and naive young friend.
When her fears are realised, she knows she must protect Miss Darcy from an elopement with a man who cares nothing for her. The only way she can do so is by reaching out to Mr Darcy, Georgiana’s proud and arrogant older brother, who is currently in Bristol, searching for a suitable wife. Elizabeth is forced to put aside her own dislike for the man and persuade him that his sister is in danger.
But as she gets to know him better, it soon becomes clear that she has been just as deceived by Mr Darcy’s true character as she was by Wickham’s. Is it possible she has judged him too hastily? And as for Mr Darcy, could it be that the pert, yet bewitching Miss Bennet is exactly the woman he has been searching for? A Pride and Prejudice variation from the author of An Encounter at Pemberley.

The Long Road to Longbourn by Renata McMann and Summer Hanford
Fitzwilliam Darcy has nearly everything a gentleman could want. Looks, wealth, connections. He lacks but one aspect of a perfect life, a bride. He’s chosen Miss Elizabeth Bennet to fill the role but when he proposes, to his utmost chagrin, she refuses him in no uncertain terms. His heart stomped on by a country miss who is by no societal measure his equal, he can’t imagine a worse moment.
Elizabeth Bennet does not care for Mr. Darcy and his highhanded, supercilious ways and wants nothing more to do with him. She hopes, in view of her vehement refusal of his proposal, to never set eyes on him again. After all, a man with Mr. Darcy’s pride can hardly be expected to bear her company after the strong words she’s issued.
Fate, however, has more plans for Elizabeth and Darcy. The moment before they mean to separate forever, both are abducted and whisked away on a harrowing journey.

Unfortunately, not everyone is willing to go along with that plan.
Darcy doesn’t want to wed an aggravating country miss with no connections, but honor dictates he offer. When, shockingly, she refuses, he’s relieved. Upon reflection, that relief turns to indignation, for no other woman would think of turning him down. Indignation soon grows into preoccupation… or could he be in the grip of some other, even stronger emotion?
Mary Younge by Renata McMann and Summer Hanford
In Pride and Prejudice it is difficult to imagine a woman who would both meet Mr. Darcy’s requirements to take charge of Georgiana, and who would trust Mr. Wickham. If she helped him, she would lose both her job and her reputation. It is unlikely she trusted or loved him enough to do that. We only know Mrs. Younge through Darcy’s eyes, but, though this Mrs. Younge conceals some of her past from Mr. Darcy, she neither conspired with Wickham nor is fooled by him. Mary Younge shows us there could be another side to the story.
This story is also included in the compilation Pride and Prejudice Villains: Revisited – Redeemed – Reimagined, A Collection of Six Short Stories.
Pride and Prejudice Villains Revisted: Redeemed, Reimagined by Renata McMann and Summer Hanford
Villains Redeemed is a collection of six “Pride and Prejudice” variations, all attempting to show how some of Jane Austen’s most vilified characters could actually be good at heart, or at least redeemed. This collection includes five selections which have been previously released alone and one short bonus story.
Mr. Collins’ Deception
Jane Austen tells us that Mr. Collins was a man of ‘great humility of manner,’ but suppose that isn’t true. What if Mr. Collins is a very different person than he appears to be? His false portrayal of himself is all part of “Mr. Collins’ Deception.” Originally released on May 3rd, 2015 and is approximately 16,000 words.
Caroline and the Footman
This variation explores the possibility that Caroline Bingley’s behavior is motivated by goals other than a desire to attract Darcy. In an effort to shatter the Caroline Bingley villain motif, this Caroline is not stupid, greedy or villainous, but rather someone with her own life and dreams. Originally released on January 13th, 2015 and is approximately 10,000 words.
Lady Catherine Regrets
Lady Catherine de Bourgh cannot understand what her nephew, Mr. Darcy, sees in the low born, impertinent Miss Elizabeth Bennet, and with Darcy married, what is to become of her daughter Anne? Lady Catherine’s quest to find her daughter a husband might just lead to a better life not only for Anne, but for herself. Originally released on December 12th, 2015 and is approximately 9,000 words.
Mrs. Bennet’s Triumph
When Mr. Bennet is killed in an accident, Mr. and Mrs. Collins immediately take possession of Longbourn. While tragic, the death of her husband doesn’t absolve Mrs. Bennet of the now even more pressing responsibility to marry off five daughters. Join her in her struggle and, ultimately, her triumph. Originally released on August 5th, 2014 as a bonus short story at the end of “The Second Mrs. Darcy,” and available on http://www.renatamcmann.com, this short story is approximately 3,800 words.
In “Pride and Prejudice” it is difficult to imagine a woman who would both meet Mr. Darcy’s requirements to take charge of Georgiana, and who would trust Mr. Wickham. Though this Mrs. Younge conceals some of her past from Mr. Darcy, she neither conspires with Wickham nor is fooled by him. Originally released on August 27th, 2015 and is approximately 40,000 words.
Yes, George Wickham is a reprehensible young man, but will he stay that way? “Pride and Prejudice” leaves him in very different circumstances than when he is first introduced. With his whole life before him, will Mr. Wickham ever become an honorable man? Wickham’s Journal can only be found in “Villains Redeemed” and is quite short, approximately 3,900 words.
The Scandalous Stepmother by Renata McMann and Summer Hanford
When Mrs. Bennet died, Mr. Bennet decided it behooved him to find a new mother for his young daughters. Now, with all of them grown and getting married, it’s time for Elizabeth to learn the truth about her father’s choice.

The Second Mrs. Darcy by Renata McMann and Summer Hanford
Devastated by Elizabeth’s refusal of his infamous proposal, Darcy marries his sickly cousin, Anne de Bourgh. Darcy expects Elizabeth will be out of his life forever, but Anne Darcy and fate bring Elizabeth to Pemberley. With Darcy already ensnared by Anne, will he and Elizabeth ever find happiness?
The Widow Elizabeth by Renata McMann and Summer Hanford
Can heartbreak ever lead to greater happiness?
When Elizabeth weds one of Darcy’s dearest friends he tries, and fails, to put his love for her behind him. Then, after two years of regretting his decision to step aside for his cousin, Colonel Fitzwilliam, Darcy is given that rarest of gifts, a second chance. Though he mourns the cousin he loved like a brother, Darcy can’t help but wonder what might have been, and what could still be.
Elizabeth’s heart is broken by her husband’s death. Worse, she’s being pressed to marry not only by her family, but a barrage of suitors. Amid the chaos and sorrow, only one person, Mr. Darcy, seems to fully understand her need to grieve. He, like Elizabeth, knows Colonel Fitzwilliam deserves the respect of a full twelve months of mourning.
Still, much can happen in a year.
Georgiana’s Folly (Wickham’s Coin Book 1) by Renata McMann and Summer Hanford
In this Pride and Prejudice variation, Darcy enlists Elizabeth’s aid to help him deal with Georgiana, a tricky task with Wickham in town. This is the first of a two-novella series. Both novellas have different interpretations of Wickham, although he is not the main character in either.
Together, the two novella’s, Georgiana’s Folly and Elizabeth’s Plight, make up The Wickham Coin Series, which is also available in paperback. The ebook version of the paperback was released for the convenience of customers who have not bought either novella.
Elizabeth’s Plight (Wickham’s Coin Book 2) by Renata McMann and Summer Hanford
In this Pride and Prejudice variation, Elizabeth rescues Georgiana from ruin, but will her heroism be rewarded with ruin of her own?
Elizabeth’s Plight is the second novella in a two part series examining two possible interpretations of Austen’s Wickham character. In this novella, which has more action scenes than other McMann and Hanford collaborations, Wickham is definitely a villain in this story.
Together, the two novella’s, Georgiana’s Folly and Elizabeth’s Plight, make up The Wickham Coin Series, which is also available in paperback. The ebook version of the paperback was released for the convenience of customers who have not bought either novella.
In Want of a Wife by Julia Middleton
When Elizabeth Bennet’s wealthy cousin, Lady Susan Lacey, invites her to join her for a season in Bath, Elizabeth is delighted to accept. Maybe there, she can escape her mother’s embarrassing determination to match one of her daughters to their mysterious new neighbour, Mr Bingley, and be free to find love in her own way. But in the shallow, gossipy society of Bath, can she find a husband she can truly love and respect?
Mr Darcy of Pemberley has always disliked Bath. But when his young sister Georgiana begs him to take her there, he cannot refuse her. Besides, at eight and twenty, it is high time he find himself a wife, and Bath is as good a place to find one as any other. But will he manage to overcome his natural reserve? And can he find a lady he can truly love, or will he bow to society’s expectations that he marry for wealth and position?
When Elizabeth forms a close friendship with Georgiana, Darcy’s shy little sister, Darcy is immediately attracted to the lively, pretty girl who has brought his sister out of her shell. Elizabeth is also powerfully attracted to her new friend’s aloof older brother. Their feelings grow as they are drawn together, despite the reservations and better judgements of both.
But Georgiana shares a secret with Elizabeth that could ruin her life and Darcy’s, unless Elizabeth persuade her away from the dangerous path she is taking. And an unwelcome figure from Darcy’s past arrives in Bath unexpectedly, and threatens to destroy everything Darcy loves.
The Path to Longbourn by Julia Middleton
Darcy is loath to leave his sister, Georgiana, so soon after her recent heartbreak. But when she discovers he has written to his friend, Mr. Bingley, to tell him he will not join him at Netherfield Park, she insists he keeps his word. At the last minute, Darcy relents and rides out for Netherfield without telling Bingley to expect him, dressing in plain clothes and riding an old horse to avoid the attention of thieves.
If Elizabeth Bennet hears one more word about their wealthy new neighbour, Mr. Bingley, she is sure she will go mad. Determined to escape her mother’s obsessive matchmaking, she slips out to walk in the woods before the assembly that night. Forgetting the time, she hurries home to prepare when she encounters a man she has never seen before. When he is thrown from his horse, Elizabeth is startled to discover that the plainly-dressed but handsome man has no idea who he is. She takes him to Longbourn where her family can care for him until he recovers his memory.
Though convinced by his appearance that the man must be a servant, Elizabeth cannot fight her growing feelings for him. Darcy likewise tries to resist falling in love with the bewitching young woman who saved his life. How can he love her when he doesn’t know who he is and what he can offer her? But spending all their time together makes it impossible and they are forced to admit they cannot fight their feelings, no matter what truth might come out about Darcy’s identity.
But a handsome young soldier called George Wickham claims to know Darcy and reveals troubling information about his past. And the future heir of Longbourn, Mr. Collins, is suspicious of the growing intimacy between this injured servant and the woman he wants to marry and is determined to get rid of him.
Hopeless of ever being together, Elizabeth and Darcy are desperate to discover the truth of who he is before a disgraced Darcy is forced to leave Longbourn forever.

The Gazebo by Don H. Miller
The fathers of Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet became friends at Cambridge and often corresponded after they graduated, playing chess matches and informing the other about their families. However, because of the difference in their standings in English society, they never met socially after Cambridge. The novel begins years after Darcy’s father died, when Darcy and Bingley first visit Netherfield Park to determine if Bingley might want to lease it. On their inspection tour, Darcy first meets Elizabeth, about whose first fifteen years he has read in his father’s letters. Bingley subsequently decides to lease Netherfield, and at an assembly ball, shortly after Bingley and his family move into Netherfield, Darcy has another encounter with Elizabeth. Darcy is unable to dance with Elizabeth, because by the time he arrives, her dance card is full. However, she observes him during ball and is greatly disappointed with his demeanor – it not being what what she had expected from what she had read about him in the letters his father had written to hers. Over the ensuing weeks and months, he determines she is the perfect woman for him, but he must convince her that he is the perfect man for him, despite her intial impression of him and what she hears about him from his father’s godson, George Wickham. His endeavor is supported by his sister, his cousin (Col. Fitzwilliam), and his paternal Aunt Pershing and her husband. His quest is finally resolved in the gazebo high on the ridge behind Pemberley while she and her sister, Kitty, are visiting there.

A Child for Elizabeth by Carrie Mollenkopf
Elizabeth Bennet Darcy sat alone in her private morning room contemplating her plans for the following week. It had been five years since her marriage, and she and her husband had fallen into an unofficial tradition of creating a series of small surprises to celebrate the occasion. More often than not, the surprises turned out the be jokes of the worst kind, but they loved it. Never ones for large crowds, they had preferred privacy to sharing, even with immediate family. So far, it had been nothing short of heavenly as they grew to know each other in ways that most married couples never did. Thiers was a love match in a time when marriages were often more of a business arrangement. The only missing element to such a perfect union was the lack of a child. Both she and Darcy wanted children, but as of yet, this happiness was not to be bestowed. As the owner of one of the largest estates in England, Fitzwilliam Darcy required an heir to take up the reins of Pemberley for the next generation.
“This place is far more than just my home; it is an entity of its own and deserves a person who will care for it with great devotion.”
To this declaration, Elizabeth could but only agree, for she knew first-hand the perils of mismanagement. Her own father, having inherited an estate of modest means, had done little to improve it beyond basic maintenance. This neglect was often attributed to having no male children to which he could pass it on. As a result, Longbourn was little more than a decaying heap of stones, more of a burden than blessing to be deposited upon her cousin William. Despite its condition, the fact that neither she, nor her sisters could inherit the family home was a source of irritation. Laws favored men in all ways. Even if a lady was in possession of her own funds, rarely did she have complete control over its disposal. This thought had often occupied her on the times when the possibility of a pregnancy presented. So much did it cause worry that Elizabeth had begun to believe that her anxiety of the prospective child’s gender had caused her lack of fertility. Of this, she had never spoken, not to anyone, but it was obvious that the longer they remained childless the more it worried her husband. Darcy, ever the epitome of kindness and consideration, had never voiced any sort of opinion. But Elizabeth knew him all too well to believe he was unbothered by the situation. This was only further exacerbated by the regular announcements of her sister’s arrivals. Having four sisters in total, only one remained presently unmarried, but even plain, pious Mary had become recently engaged. To date, her parents had been blessed with half a dozen grandchildren. Her eldest sister, Jane, bearing twin boys within a year of her marriage. Elizabeth could only stand by and be the doting aunt, sending congratulations and baby items, but not share in the experience herself. She had even gone so far as to consult a London doctor without Darcy’s knowledge. The assessment, while encouraging, had done little to solve her predicament.
“You are young and healthy, there is no history of any sort of malady that might cause problems. Sometimes these things just take time… and practice,” the Harley street physician had insisted.
Grumbling to herself, Elizabeth had simply thanked him and left. “Practice more? That is all we ever do!” But it did not seem to be enough, there was still no sign of the child she desperately wanted. Would Darcy’s love slowly fade without an heir?

Portraits of Pemberley by Carrie Mollenkopf
Elizabeth Bennet Darcy walked slowly down the long gallery that housed the visual images depicting generations of Darcys. As she paused before the frames, it was as if each pair of eyes was staring back, studying her in return. Imagining they could speak, Elizabeth pondered what opinions were held by her husband’s forebears. Were they pleased with the new mistress or did they find fault? Some of the portraits went back hundreds of years, having been installed in the current house long after the first had been razed during the early 14th century. Pemberley, as it now stood, was built upon the remaining foundations of a Medieval fortress. Its stones had been repurposed in the great hall floor and fireplace. Of the drafty damp walls and rush strewn chambers, no trace could be found. The current residence was a thing of true splendor, one that Elizabeth hoped she would serve well during her life, continuing the legacy for the next generation. As of yet, her own likeness did not grace these walls, it was a point of debate she held with Fitzwilliam. Having been married nearly a year already, he had been pressing her to choose an artist and sit for her portrait. Just that morning, Darcy had mentioned it again.
“It really is long past time that you had your portrait painted. The family gallery is incomplete without you.”
“It is already filled. There isn’t any space for me,” she replied lightheartedly in excuse. Truth be told, Elizabeth hated the prospect of sitting still for hours only to have her likeness recorded. There was so much about her new home that had yet to be discovered. Just the other day, she had explored the former nurseries hoping that they would be needed in the near future. Although it was early in their marriage, many female acquaintances had discreetly broached the subject of children. An estate the magnitude of Pemberley needed an heir, and the sooner the better. While Elizabeth loved children, she was in no hurry to begin the process. For now, she was content to simply enjoy the company of her husband. With each passing day, she grew to know more of his preferences. No man was perfect, but the Master of Pemberley was about as close as she could imagine. In spite of Darcy’s fine attributes, or perhaps because of them, he also possessed a stubborn streak that was nearly as fierce as her own. This was exacerbated by a dedication to preserving may of Pemberley’s traditions. Of late, the portrait gallery, and its lack of her image, seemed foremost in his mind. Sighing, Elizabeth knew she would concede eventually. Perhaps it was best to be done with the ordeal while she was young. After all, who wanted to be remembered for posterity in their dotage?
When space is made to accommodate Elizabeth’s portrait, a startling discovery is made. Tucked away behind the painting of a Darcy ancestor is a mysterious painting, one that is not only bordering upon scandalous, but also affirms an old Darcy family legend. Who is the stranger that reaches out through a mirror to grasp the outstretched hands of Isabel Darcy? Inquiry into the painting will lead to a web of murder, mystery and lies, with Elizabeth and Darcy in the center.
Preserving Pemberley by Carrie Mollenkopf

In Bath, a Georgian townhouse acts as a portal in time, and Caroline finds herself becoming Cassandra Austen, a young woman making her debut in society, torn between family duty and the love of her life. As the riddles unfold, and the lines blur between illusion and reality, will Caroline find the happiness she seeks or will she indulge her wild imagination, threatening her future and a fairytale ending?
