_ALHL cover KINDLE FINALsmall

Shortly after Elizabeth Bennet refuses Fitzwilliam Darcy’s offer of marriage, he becomes convinced her reproofs were correct and determines to become worthy of her love. His attempt to arrange a “chance” meeting is successful and they cross paths in London.

Soon afterwards, Darcy sails for Virginia to retrieve his newly widowed cousin, who has found herself stranded in a country on the verge of war with her native land. Once there, he suspects her sights are set on him as her next mate. Even worse, his journal—which details his feelings about Elizabeth—is accidentally posted to Elizabeth. Can he return to England, convince her he has taken her opinions to heart, and win her love before she receives it?

The impulsive Elizabeth Bennet is injured while touring a Derbyshire estate with her aunt and uncle, and circumstances find her at the home of Georgiana Darcy while she recuperates. While there, Elizabeth realizes she is in love with Darcy, but will he arrive home and assume the worst about her after finding her living at his estate?

The Gypsy Blessing Chapter 2 has been posted

The second chapter of The Gypsy Blessing is up!

—>>  Beyond Austen  <<—-

New story! The Gypsy Blessing Chapter 1

I’m posting the first draft of a new story,

The Gypsy Blessing

at BeyondAusten.com!

Please stop by and take a look. Here is the blurb:

Blurb: Whilst taking a solitary ramble on her father’s estate, Elizabeth Bennet finds an injured woman, cares for her, and helps her return to her gypsy camp. Impressed that a gentlewoman would come to his wife’s aid, the king of the gypsies promises that she will find happiness through his wife’s special blessing. Forgetting the incident, Elizabeth thinks it merely odd when she begins to receive drawings in the mail with no return address—until she begins to recognize the scenes depicted in the sketches as they become true events in her life.

All Hallow’s Eve New Chapter posted

I know, it has only been 3 days since I posted… but when I have a chapter already beta’d, it starts burning a hole in, well, my hard drive.

Check out DarcyandLizzy.com or Fanfiction.net to read 🙂

On Fanfiction.net – I don’t know how I managed it, but I messed up the chapter numbers in their listing.  Go by the chapter number in the actual text, please.  Sorry about the confusion!
