Newest Cover! “Love Letters from Mr. Darcy”

I’m so pleased to reveal the cover to the story I posted online as “The Letter”. It’s a novella length Darcy and Elizabeth tale where Mr. Darcy has the most romantic proposal I’ve ever written – swoon! I’m hoping for a late October release.

Here is the blurb:

How much power is in the written word? Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy is determined to find out.

Crushed beyond measure at the rejection of his proposal, Darcy struggles to explain both the facts and his feelings by letter to the only woman he will ever love. Can such a reticent man find the words to enable Elizabeth Bennet to know the man behind the mask? Will she read his carefully crafted epistle once he delivers it into her hand? Will he catch even a small glimmer of hope?

Affection and respect. Two magical words Miss Elizabeth never expected to hear from the last man in the world she would ever marry, yet they undeniably appear before her eyes in black and white. Devotion and adoration. Humph!

Follow literature’s most beloved couple during the weeks following the disastrous proposal as a series of heartfelt missives has created such havoc in Elizabeth’s heart that she is finally moved to write him back. Will hers be a letter of love as well?

In this sweet novella-length variation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, we will see love bloom and grow. This is a Regency historical romance from bestselling author, J Dawn King.

And here is the cover:


New Cover! Mr. Darcy’s Mail Order Bride

I am so fortunate to have a cover designer with an abundance of skill. She has me run my ideas by her and then she gives me EXACTLY what I need. Thank you, JD Smith Designs.

Here’s my temporary blurb:

Set after the American Civil War, a lonely Charles Bingley asked his friend Fitzwilliam Darcy to pen an offer of marriage to Mr. Gardiner’s niece, Miss Jane Bennet. Jane convinces her sister Elizabeth to write her reply. Elizabeth, touched by Mr. Bingley’s letter, has memorized each word and Darcy, in his turn, cherishes each response. By the time the sisters head West, Elizabeth has fallen in love with Bingley and Darcy loves Jane. In a “Pride and Prejudice” tale of mistaken identity, who will marry whom?
