Beetiful designed the book cover for A Valentine For Darcy by Jane Grix.
Darcy knows he is falling for Elizabeth Bennet, but he doesn’t want to be connected to her ill-bred family, so he struggles to put her out of his mind. Until he receives an anonymous valentine. Caroline Bingley sent the valentine, but Darcy thinks it is from Elizabeth Bennet.
Elizabeth thinks Mr. Darcy is an arrogant, disagreeable man, until he shows up on her doorstep, declaring his undying love for her. She is astonished. He is only half as obnoxious as he was before. What could have made the difference?
A Valentine for Darcy is a Pride and Prejudice Variation Novella, based on Jane Austen’s most romantic couple.
Read to see what a well-aimed shot from Cupid’s arrow can do.
I specialize in writing stories for readers who want a quick romantic getaway with Mr. Darcy.
I've been half in love with Mr. Darcy since I was twelve, although I'll admit, the first time I read Pride and Prejudice, I was totally taken in by Wickham. I was stunned when Mr. Darcy proposed (I guess I was reading too quickly to catch all the hints), and even more stunned when Wickham turned out to be a jerk. But by the end of the book I was completely smitten by Darcy. I am still smitten.
The best part about writing Jane Austen Variations is that I can relive those moments of discovery and watch Elizabeth fall in love with Darcy one more time.
All my books and short stories are standalone stories, each with a slightly different Darcy and Elizabeth. Some stories of my stories are shorter (novellas) and some are longer because they are more complex - similar to the difference between a television episode and a movie. I believe both can be satisfying romances.
