The day is fast approaching for the official launch of Mr. Darcy’s Pledge and I thought I would share the cover with you. It was designed by the enormously talented JD Smith. I think it creates a certain atmosphere though I can’t put my finger on quite what it is. Can you think of a good way to discribe the cover?
To celebrate the upcoming release, I will be giving away a free e-book preview copy — to be selected randomly from comments.
Meanwhile, to whet your appetite, here is the description:
Torn between his heart and his mind… Mr. Darcy must make a choice.
Fitzwilliam Darcy has always been able to keep his emotions under control. That is, until he falls under the spell of Elizabeth Bennet and surprises himself by blurting out a proposal to her like a moonstruck youth. Stung to the quick by her rejection, his pride in tatters, and left with no possibility that she will ever return his regard, Darcy determines to put all thoughts of Elizabeth behind him. But not even Town with its boundless opportunities for amusement can keep the image of Elizabeth Bennet from pursuing him everywhere he goes.
By the time Darcy leaves Town to travel up to Pemberley, he has learned one thing. There is only one way of overcoming Miss Bennet’s bewitching hold over him and Darcy is desperate enough to try it. The solution is to get married. And this time, he is not going to choose a wife by allowing his emotions to lead him by the nose.
His choice will be entirely rational…
In Volume I of this Pride and Prejudice variation, Monica Fairview traces Mr. Darcy’s journey as he struggles to come to terms with the upheaval Elizabeth Bennet has caused in his life…and his heart.
I can’t wait until official launch day, which is May 6th. Don’t forget to stop by that day for a chance to win copies of Mr. Darcy’s Pledge.
My question for you today is: If Mr. Darcy had no hope at all of winning Elizabeth Bennet’s heart, what kind of a young lady should he marry?
