A Pride and Prejudice Story "All your favorite characters are here, but somehow it feels like you're meeting them for the very first time. I adored James Ramos's That Girl, Darcy." - Heidi Doxey, author of Liam Darcy, I Loathe You “Love. You can’t tell when you’ll catch it or who you’ll fall for. But once it happens, it’ll change everything for you.” IT IS A TRUTH UNIVERSALLY ACKNOWLEDGED that geeky guys never get to date the pretty girls. Elliott Bennett is entering his senior year and finding a girlfriend is the last thing on his mind. That is, until Darcy Fitzwilliam moves into the only mansion in the neighborhood. When Elliott meets Darcy at a party, he finds out that she isn’t into skateboarding (which he lives for), she hates science fiction (which he loves), and she thinks his friends are a pack of morons (which, honestly, might be half true)—and yet, there’s something irritatingly intriguing about her. This gender-swapped Pride and Prejudice retelling brings back all the original characters in a quirky modern day setting that holds true to the original story while bringing new humor and misunderstandings. That Girl, Darcy is a Teen High School Romance.

Elizabeth Bennet’s father died when she was very young, and her mother remarried a few years later to a man named Bingley. Though her mother has sent her and her older sister Jane away to stay with relatives for significant periods of time in their lives, Elizabeth has spent enough time in the presence of her stepsisters Caroline and Louisa to grow accustomed to their cutting remarks and their treating her like a servant, even as they tolerate Jane. But her stepbrother, Charles, often away at school, is practically a stranger. Still, Elizabeth finds it a bit awkward to discover a romance is brewing between Jane and Charles Bingley, and she’s not keen on the idea of helping her sister sneak around with her new paramour by pretending to be Jane at a series of masquerade balls. Elizabeth harbors a dream to be a published novelist, and she would rather stay at home and scribble away at her book than dance at a ball. Especially not if she has to endure the company of Mr. Darcy. He is Mr. Bingley’s awful friend. Sometimes silent, sometimes smug, always loathsomely arrogant. No, she fears that if she spends too much time anywhere near man, she will be unable to keep herself from telling him exactly what she thinks of him. And that can only go badly. The Happily Ever Collection is a series of books that retell the story of our dear couple mixed with various fairy tales. This is a combination of Cinderella and Pride and Prejudice. Set in Regency England, there are no magical or paranormal elements.

Together, they set off for Pemberley, where Elizabeth must face Lady Catherine’s disapproval, Georgiana’s painful shyness, and the sudden appearance of Mr. Wickham…

What if Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth met when they were young? What if Mr. Darcy had an ambitious, cunning uncle? Years ago, Mr. William Oliver was a different man. He was raised to inherit Pemberley, as Fitzwilliam Darcy. The summer of his thirteenth year, he spent his time sneaking off to play games with a girl named Elizabeth, who was visiting her aunt and uncle in Lambton, just miles from his home. But all that changed one tragic day when the boy’s father fell to his death, directly after they’d had a terrible quarrel. His uncle, Simon Darcy, ushered him off, telling him that everyone would believe the boy had killed his own father, and that he must run away and never come back. And so, for ten years, Mr. Oliver has lived another life with another name, as a foundling in London, dependent on the employment of his friend, Charles Bingley. He accepts an invitation to the country with the Bingleys and accompanies them to a public ball. Then he sets eyes on Elizabeth, all grown up. He recognizes her immediately, and he is stunned by her beauty. Also, he is determined that she never reveal who he truly is. This variation adjusts ages to accommodate the idea that Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth could have conceivably been childhood playmates and adds in a few entirely new characters. It could not be termed entirely clean, but there is no consummation until the very end, after our dear couple are happily married.
