When Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet meet in Hyde Park, Darcy immediately finds his opinions of the world challenged by the lady. Their attraction grows at the next meeting as Elizabeth finds she has at last met a man who accepts her wit and intelligence. The budding romance may be killed, however, upon their arrival in Hertfordshire. Darcy must meet Elizabeth’s family while Elizabeth grapples with the jealous Caroline Bingley, all the while a man in uniform watches and plots. Fate brought them together, but only love can overcome their obstacles. Short and sweet, The Gentleman’s Impertinent Daughter is an uncomplicated romance for all who love Jane Austen Fan Fiction.
Resolved to forget Elizabeth Bennet during a winter in London, Fitzwilliam Darcy writes a letter in bitterness of spirit. Frustrated by her growing obsession with the arrogant man, Elizabeth commits her thoughts to paper. But angry people are not always wise, and secret thoughts do not always remain secret. Compelled to face their selfishness and fears, their actions encourage those dearest to them to change as well. An unexpected mixture of introspection and comedy, Letters from the Heart is perfectly packaged with charm and sweet romance.
Upon leaving Hertfordshire in early December, Darcy feels certain he provided reasons for Elizabeth to distrust Mr. Wickham. She, in turn, believes Darcy understands Jane’s feelings for Mr. Bingley. Disappointed in her attempts to see Bingley again, Jane despairs of ever finding happiness. Yet, the business of life cannot always remain undone. When Darcy and Elizabeth meet again in Kent, both couples must face the courses their lives have taken. Undone Business explores the cost of both opportunities missed and second chances seized.
When a simple accident is misinterpreted and threatens Elizabeth Bennet’s reputation, her fate seems sealed as Fitzwilliam Darcy’s wife. While the bride is resigned, the gentleman could hardly be happier until betrayals and schemes threaten to entirely take the matter out of their hands. Overcoming the plots before them will take all the patience, perseverance and collaboration they can muster, but a partnership requires truth. Self-discovery and trust await Jane Austen’s most beloved and willfully blind couple as they attempt to master their own destiny in life and love.
A Sense of Obligation

New feelings may not be enough, however, to overcome the misunderstanding which lays between them. Exploring the juncture of sentiment and reason, A Sense of Obligation, takes Darcy and Elizabeth on a passionate, humorous and introspective path toward happiness in marriage.

Mr. Darcy’s Kindness
Although Elizabeth Bennet once refused her father’s heir, she reconsiders when her elder sister—despondent from heartbreak—contemplates marriage to him. Confident that Mr. Bingley will return to Netherfield and confess his love for Jane, Elizabeth accepts Mr. Collins’ offer of matrimony. When Fitzwilliam Darcy visits his aunt’s estate months later, his heart breaks at learning Elizabeth is now Mrs. Collins, and due to his selfishness. As Darcy determines to right his wrongs, a fever breaks out in London, forever altering his relationship with Elizabeth. In Mr. Darcy’s Kindness, misunderstandings and pride lead to more regret and heartache than Jane Austen’s original, but love always finds a way.
We are all fools in love…
Some say a lady’s imagination is very rapid. Such is the case when Elizabeth Bennet overhears that Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy admires her eyes. She thinks nothing for herself, but immediately considers her dearest sister’s growing attachment to Mr. Darcy’s friend. If Elizabeth spurns such a wealthy—and proud—gentleman, he might do everything in his power to separate his friend from her sister.
Raised in a world of expectations and pedigree, Darcy knows Elizabeth Bennet can offer him nothing of material value. As his attraction for her grows, he becomes increasingly convinced his feelings are nonsensical. Still, he might forsake it all if only he had true encouragement.
Misunderstandings lead to betrayals, and the couple soon learns falling in love takes courage but staying in love requires forgiveness. Traversing from the groves of Hertfordshire to the drawing rooms of London to the complexity and danger of Luddite revolts in Yorkshire, Sufficient Encouragement follows Darcy and Elizabeth’s journey of love and forgiveness.
