Mr. Darcy Requests the Pleasure

By | Aston, Darcy, Darcy Novellas | No Comments


A host of Jane Austen characters from Pride and Prejudice return in four sparkling and witty romantic comedies.
“Great characters, great comic characters, great romance.” Chicago Sun Times on Elizabeth Aston.

Curl up with a box of chocolates and travel back to a snowy Regency Christmas to share the festive season with the Darcy family. Dream of mince-pies and wassail, Yule logs, dancing—and stolen kisses under the mistletoe as Mr Darcy’s sister, Georgiana, finds love at last.

To Mr Darcy’s annoyance, Lady Catherine and Mr Collins arrive uninvited at Pemberley, set to force Mr Darcy’s cousin into marriage to a man she doesn’t love. Can Lady Sarah Fitzwilliam meet her match, help an old friend to his own happiness–and rid Pemberley of its unwanted guests?

Mr and Mrs Darcy are in London for the Season, and Mr Darcy’s jilted niece, Serafina, is staying with them. Can she hold her head high and dance her way through the maze of misunderstanding and mischief that lies in wait for her, and accept the love of a man she thought she hated?

It’s winter at Pemberley, and time for Mr and Mrs Darcy and their guests to put on a play. Theodosia Beckford, Mr and Mrs Darcy’s new governess delights in the Gothic. But even as she pens a drama of high romance and imagines every creaking door portends a spectre, realism rules when it comes to love.

Originally published as separate stories in the series THE DARCY NOVELLAS.
