A forced marriage. When Elizabeth Bennet’s reputation is ruined, Mr. Darcy feels honor bound to marry her. The problem is, Elizabeth despises him and Darcy won’t let her go.
Excerpt: Elizabeth laughed, but it was not a pleasant sound. “You are incredible, sir. If I had ever for one minute considered marrying you, your actions today would make me change my mind.”
Darcy was dumbfounded. “I don’t understand.”
“No, I don’t think you do. I don’t think you are capable of understanding. You act like one of the Greek gods, doing whatever you want, regardless of the consequences. At first, I thought it was because I am a woman and many men think women are of no importance, that we are silly, irrational creatures and cannot make decisions for our lives. But no, you don’t think you are superior only to women. You think you are superior to everyone. Tell me, is it lonely on Mount Olympus?”
Darcy flinched. “I do not think I am superior. I merely saw what needed to be done and did it.”
Elizabeth countered, “Without consulting me!”
“I am consulting with you now.”
“No, you are not. You are telling me what you have already done.”
Darcy’s Folly is a Pride and Prejudice Variation novella set in the Regency Era.
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.
