Now available as EBook!

In marriage-minded Regency England, one simple word can ruin your life. Compromise! can bring down a virtuous maiden, like Miss Elizabeth Bennet, and her entire family along with her.

When Elizabeth finds Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy outside Netherfield, alone and at his most vulnerable, she must make a quick decision to bend the rules of propriety to help him or turn her back on someone in need. Her tender heart reaches out to him and his wounded one grabs hold of her well-intentioned support. Discovery changes the course of their lives as Elizabeth is forced to accept a reluctant proposal of marriage from this man whom she has just barely begun to respect. Can Jane Austen’s most beloved couple reach a compromise that might turn a tenuous friendship into a loving marriage?  Will it survive as desperate, unscrupulous, and foolish people alike set compromising machinations into motion for their own greedy ends?

Follow Elizabeth and Darcy in this novella-length Regency romance as J. Dawn King takes them through a sweet variation of Pride and Prejudice where compromises abound and outcomes will surprise you.

COMING SOON!!! – Compromised! should be available in print before September 1st and has been sent to the narrator to be produced as audio. The audiobook should be available in the next several months. Stay tuned!

UPDATE: It’s available in print. Yippee!
