March Madness – Mr. Darcy meets Capt. Wentworth by Jack Caldwell — 43 Comments

  1. What fun. Wentworth and Darcy meet in in the solicitor’s office and Wentworth’s knowing Mr. Gardiner. An intrigueing bit of information as well as another mutual aquaintance in Harville. Looking forward to reading more. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Crikey a sequel to the three colonels HURRAH!!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻🎉🎉🎉 This sounds really good, Persuasion meets Pride and Prejudice! It takes a real man to write historical romance but Jack Caldwell does it brilliantly! Cant wait to see this book published!

  3. I loved The Three Colonels, and a sequel would be a wonderful gift. I was so glad to read this chapter, and now I am looking forward to both new books when they are published. I love it when characters from one book meet characters from another book. It makes things fun when their lives intertwine. Let us know when they are available. 🙂

  4. I can’t agree more with Mari and June. Persuasion and Pride and Prejudice are my two favorite Austin novels. Having their two main characters come together is riveting. I have long been waiting for Persuaded To Sail as anything related to Persuasion is not to be missed. With [Rosings Park] coming out soon, I will be forced (most willingly) to reread The Three Colonels as it has been a long time since I read it. Thank you, Jack, for this sneak peek ….. And hurry up! We are waiting out here, languishing, for these two new books from you.

  5. Loved the Three Colonels so look forward to the sequel, and a sequel to Persuasion so more Captain Wentworth.

  6. I loved how Three Colonels and The … Scarlet Pimpernel went along the parallel paths. Looking forward to the two new ones! The world is small, it’s lovely to see those that we are so fond of cross paths. 🙂

    • PERSUADED TO SAIL will be another “companion novel” with the first two. ROSINGS PARK, while a sequel to THE THREE COLONELS and will deal mostly with the Fitzwilliams, Darcys, and Bufords, will have elements of all of my Jane Austen Fighting Men series.

      • So Persuaded will be travelling side by side with Colonels and Scarlet whilst Rosings will be a follow-up (or later date) of the other three? That’s just a cool way to do it sir!! I look forward to the next.

        • Most of PERSUADED TO SAIL takes place between March and July of 1815, with a jump into the summer of 1816. ROSINGS PARK begins in Sept. of 1816, but most of it happens in May and June of 1817, with an epilogue in late 1818.

  7. Wonderful! Your language, turn of phrase and grammar are superior, sir! Having these two gentlemen meet is a fantastic idea.
    I want more, please and thank you!

  8. Looking forward to reading your two new books when they are published. How exciting to have Darcy and Wentworth meet. I hope to see more of them together!!! Hope we hear more of Colonel Fitzwilliam too. He is one of my favorites.

  9. Definitely looking forward to the sequel to The Three Colonels and also anything that involves Persuasion. This little snippet had both. Thanks for sharing it with us, Jack.

  10. I really enjoyed the Three Colonels so I am thrilled to hear a sequel is in the works. Good luck and I anticipate its publication soon!

  11. I enjoy your books. I have a request that if you would try to expand a story on Colonel Fitzwilliam. I have the story The Three Colonels. But I think that Colonel Fitzwilliam deserves his story expanded. I like your perspective on the stories. Just a suggestion. I can’t wait for your two new books. Thank you

    • You’re in luck! The sequel is entitled ROSINGS PARK, and if you recall Colonel Fitzwilliam’s adventures in THE THREE COLONELS, you already know where the good colonel ends up after the wars! I hope you will enjoy my continuing take on Richard Fitzwilliam

    • As alpha dogs they must respect each other. As for being friends, it’s either that or hating each other. They are intelligent fellows, so they chose the latter, to the (future) relief of their wives.

  12. Oh my gosh! Captain Wentworth and Mr. Darcy! Love it! And Elizabeth and Anne to meet? That sounds delightful. If you also add in Mr. Tilney and Catherine, I would be over the moon. 🙂

  13. That was a nice interlude with all kinds of connections being hinted at. Good luck with all your projects. Glad to read of Tucker’s success. But Uncle Hugh is a loss, sadly.
