Book Description :

"Pride & Prejudice Villains Revisited - Redeemed - Reimagined: A Collection of Six Short Stories" is a collection of six "Pride and Prejudice" variations, all attempting to show how some of Jane Austen's most vilified characters could actually be good at heart, or at least redeemed. This collection includes five selections which have been previously released alone in eBook format only and one short bonus story - "Mr. Collins' Deception" - Jane Austen tells us that Mr. Collins was a man of 'great humility of manner, ' but suppose that isn't true. What if Mr. Collins is a very different person than he appears to be? His false portrayal of himself is all part of "Mr. Collins' Deception." Originally released on May 3rd, 2015 and is approximately 16,000 words - "Caroline and the Footman" - This variation explores the possibility that Caroline Bingley's behavior is motivated by goals other than a desire to attract Darcy. In an effort to shatter the Caroline Bingley villain motif, this Caroline is not stupid, greedy or villainous, but rather someone with her own life and dreams. Originally released on January 13th, 2015 and is approximately 10,000 words - "Lady Catherine Regrets" - Lady Catherine de Bourgh cannot understand what her nephew, Mr. Darcy, sees in the low born, impertinent Miss Elizabeth Bennet, and with Darcy married, what is to become of her daughter Anne? Lady Catherine's quest to find her daughter a husband might just lead to a better life not only for Anne, but for herself. Originally released on December 12th, 2015 and is approximately 9,000 words - "Mrs. Bennet's Triumph" - When Mr. Bennet is killed in an accident, Mr. and Mrs. Collins immediately take possession of Longbourn. While tragic, the death of her husband doesn't absolve Mrs. Bennet of the now even more pressing responsibility to marry off five daughters. Join her in her struggle and, ultimately, her triumph. Originally released on August 5th, 2014 as a bonus short story at the end of "The Second Mrs. Darcy," and available on www.renatamcmann.com, this short story is approximately 3,800 words - "Mary Younge" - In "Pride and Prejudice" it is difficult to imagine a woman who would both meet Mr. Darcy's requirements to take charge of Georgiana, and who would trust Mr. Wickham. Though this Mrs. Younge conceals some of her past from Mr. Darcy, she neither conspires with Wickham nor is fooled by him. Originally released on August 27th, 2015 and is approximately 40,000 words - "Wickham's Journal" - Yes, George Wickham is a reprehensible young man, but will he stay that way? "Pride and Prejudice" leaves him in very different circumstances than when he is first introduced. With his whole life before him, will Mr. Wickham ever become an honorable man? Wickham's Journal can only be found in "Villains Redeemed" and is quite short, approximately 3,900 words.

Eligible, Curtis Sittenfeld’s newest novel, is “a modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice.” In this twenty-first century tale, the girls of the Bennet family keep some core traits from the Jane Austen originals, but with a modern take. Jane is a Yoga instructor about to turn forty, Liz is in her late thirties and is a magazine writer who lives in New York City, Mary is all about her online degrees, and Kitty and Lydia are still the youngest and spoiled ones who now are obsessed with Paleo diets and CrossFit. This time, the two eldest sisters came back to the family house to help with their father’s recovery from a heart scare. Since all the girls are back home, Mrs. Bennet takes the opportunity to seek potential husbands for her daughters, and what better than a Fourth of July barbecue where Dr. Chip Bingley—a recent contestant of the TV dating show Eligible- is presented, accompanied by his sister and his school friend, Dr. Fitzwilliam Darcy. Taking the characteristic humor from Jane Austen’s original, Curtis Sittenfeld made a transition from the countryside of England in the early 1800s to the modern society of Cincinnati.

Book Description :

From the family lives of the Bennet sisters and their characterful parents, to the hidden charm, grace, and elegance of the unflappable Mr. Darcy, it might seem as if fans of Austen's timeless classic, Pride & Prejudice, know all there is to know about this truly great novel. However, within the pages of this much-loved book, there are questions which call out for answers... the greatest of which are: what if everything we believed to be true about the Bennets and their fellow characters was, in fact, a veneer for something quite different? What if the behavior and intentions of the iconic sisters was all an act? And what if Mr. Darcy, Mr. Bingley, and all the other refined gentlemen of Pemberley and beyond were not the genteel and mannered men we saw them to be?Such questions, such mysteries, and such tantalizing possibilities form the backbone of True Love Never Fails, a daring and bold reimagining of Jane Austen's most famed and adored work. Throughout the pages of this stunning novel, which abounds in all that we fell in love with in the chapters of Pride & Prejudice - and much more besides - we're left second-guessing every motive, every word, and every eventuality we thought we knew so well. As readers, we're taken into the heart of a dazzling set of cliff-hangers and revealed truths... and we'll never be able to look our favorite characters in the same way again.Alongside the rollicking storyline that weaves its way through the moral mazes of 18th century English high society, True Love Never Fails introduces its readers to the elusive and serious Mary Bennet. She's a sister with a secret, and one who holds the key to the heart of the fun-loving Colonel Fitzwilliam, around whom a spiraling storyline forms. As revelation follows revelation, hearts will be broken, bonds will be formed, and the truth behind this timeless novel will be reimagined and revealed. Thanks to the astonishing deftness of the storytelling, and the author's keen eye for a twist and tantalizing details, readers will find themselves on a new ride through a familiar landscape that's as breathlessly romantic as it is captivating. From the first page you'll be hooked, and by the time you reach the the very last, you'll be calling out for more from this awe-inspiring retelling of Austen's masterpiece. Warning - Cliffhanger!

Book Description :

Persuasion (1817) is the final novel written by English author Jane Austen--and the first to be attributed to her name. Persuasion was published posthumously to widespread critical acclaim, and has since been recognized as an understated and mature work of fiction from one of history's finest writers. Like most of Austen's novels, Persuasion involves an intricate network of characters and relationships, illustrating its author's peerless attention to the inner workings of aristocratic society and the nuances of human communication. Persuaded by her wealthy family to break off her engagement to the young Frederick Wentworth, Anne Elliot finds herself unmarried nearly eight years later. By now, with the Elliot family all but ruined by the spendthrift Sir Walter and his enabling daughter Elizabeth, the prospect of marriage is not only a distant hope for Anne, but a bitter reminder of what could have been. When chance reunites her with Frederick, now the esteemed Captain Wentworth for his accomplishments in the Napoleonic Wars, she will have to navigate feelings both old and new with the reversal brought on by their opposing fortunes. As the two are drawn closer together, they will have to decide if it is possible to rekindle a love that has lain dormant much longer than their engagement was allowed to last. Jane Austen's Persuasion is a perceptive and entertaining novel that raises timeless questions regarding the inequity of social life, the disparate opportunities available to men and woman, and the indomitable feelings which work to draw them together--and threaten to drive them apart. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Jane Austen's Persuasion is a classic of English literature reimagined for modern readers.

A timeless classic reimagined . . . for terrible people. Following the death of their father, sisters Elinor and Marianne Dashwood are sent to toil at a rundown logging camp deep in Kentucky. Faced with the prospect of being married off to Colonel Brandon, the camp's elderly owner, Marianne comes up with the less-than-cunning plan of passing off the murderous man-ape that haunts the nearby forest as her fiancé. Both sense and sensibility take a back seat as Willoughby, as the beast is dubbed, tears a swath of destruction through Barton Woods, leaving misery and chaos behind for those either too dull-witted to stop his rampage or far too polite to say anything about it. Can the Dashwood sisters triumph in the face of such carnage to find true love? Or will their crushed bodies be left forgotten in a clearing for the badgers to find? Find out as Shingles paints a less than masterful portrait of Regency era etiquette set amidst a backdrop of deep woods terror. ---------- Shingles, by the minds behind Authors & Dragons, is the horror comedy series that takes the things you love most and puts a cigarette out on it.

Book Description :

Lady Susan (1871) is a novel by English author Jane Austen. Originally written in 1794--making it one of Austen's earliest complete works--Lady Susan was published posthumously and has since been of interest to readers and scholars alike. It is notable for its epistolary form, a popular style of prose fiction writing in the late-eighteenth century in which the narrative is told in the form of letters between characters embedded in the story itself. The epistolary novel mimics letter writing in order to distance the author from their work, as well as to simulate the secrecy and intimacy of private communication for its reader. Austen's novel, narrated by letters between its cast of characters, follows Lady Johnson's visit to Churchill, the country estate of her brother- and sister-in-law Charles and Catherine Vernon. At Churchill, Lady Susan seduces and denies Catherine's brother Reginald De Courcy, a handsome but gullible man. When Frederica, Lady Susan's teenage daughter, arrives, she begins to fall in love with Reginald. This disrupts not just her mother's control of the young man, but her plan for Frederica to marry Sir James Martin, a wealthy suitor who soon arrives at Churchill himself. As the plot unfolds, and as the bonds of familial and romantic affection are tested, a drama of chaos and comedy ensues which bears the hallmark clarity of Austen's moral vision. Lady Susan is an early masterpiece from renowned novelist Jane Austen, a text which not only clears the path for her more famous novels to come, but carves a space for itself in a truly legendary body of work. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Jane Austen's Lady Susan is a classic of English literature reimagined for modern readers.

Book Description :

Camilla; Or, A Picture of Youth (1796) is a novel by Frances Burney. Both satirical and serious, comedic and Gothic, Burney's novel helped establish her reputation as one of the most popular writers of eighteenth-century England. Referred to in Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey (1803) and Maria Edgeworth's Belinda (1801), Camilla; Or, A Picture of Youth was a popular and critically acclaimed novel that served as inspiration for some of the leading literary figures of the early nineteenth century. After years of silence, Mr. Augustus Tyrold moves to the rural estate of Cleves to be near his brother Sir Hugh, who lives at a local parsonage. Lonely and crippled, Sir Hugh hopes to act as a mentor to his nieces and nephews. He takes a liking to Camilla, the middle daughter, and endeavors to make her his heiress while raising her in his own household. Although initially cautious, Mr. and Mrs. Tyrold eventually send Camilla to live at Sir Hugh's home, where her uncle decides to host her tenth birthday party. When a lapse in judgement leads to Camilla's younger sister contracting smallpox, Sir Hugh attempts to remedy the situation by naming Eugenia his heiress instead. Living with her uncle, Eugenia enjoys an unusually thorough education under the tutelage of Dr. Orkbourne, a classical scholar who quickly takes to the enthusiastic and intelligent young girl. Meanwhile, Camilla becomes entangled in a love triangle involving her father's ward Edgar and her cousin Indiana. Despite the mutual affection between Edgar and Camilla, Indiana has entertained the thought of marrying the handsome, wealthy man from a young age, when Sir Hugh thought it prudent to predict their future marriage. As Sir Hugh's plans for the Tyrold youths meet increasingly serious obstacles, and as debts threaten the wellbeing of the entire family, Camilla is forced to navigate a world in which decisions seem always to be made in her interest by those with their own in mind. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Frances Burney's Camilla; Or, A Picture of Youth is a classic of English literature reimagined for modern readers.
