Mistaken Identity: Blurb

TAGLINE: Two men with the same name. Two ladies with the same appearance. What happens when they meet? MURDER!!!

When Fitzwilliam Darcy’s life is threatened, he seeks refuge in Hertfordshire where he meets a woman who looks remarkably like the female who twice shot at him. Why was Elizabeth Bennet trying to kill him? How could he be attracted to her when he should do everything in his power to stay away?

Accidentally mistaking Mr. Darcy for someone else, Elizabeth Bennet determines to have nothing to do with him until she learns that her first impression might have been a mistake. Where she expected arrogance, he was kind. When she anticipated a lie, he proved himself trustworthy. Who was the man behind the name, Fitzwilliam Darcy, and why was she drawn to him despite knowing he was dangerous?

In this Regency romance with a hint of dark mystery written by bestselling author, J Dawn King, the true nature of the characters from Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice are revealed as they search through a complex web of deceit to find hope and lasting love.

What do you think? I’m REALLY nervous about this one.


  1. Ginna

    When? When? When? WHEN? WHEN?

    • J "Joy" Dawn King

      My final read through is tonight and it goes to my editor in the morning. This is my longest story EVER, Ginna, close to 100,000 words. My goal is before the end of the month.

      • Ginna

        Thanks. I’ll keep my eyes peeled for it.

    I look forward to reading this. Ironically, I just recently read one in which Fitzwilliam had a twin brother (by Brenda Webb) and who would allow people to believe he was Fitzwilliam…even going so far as to represent himself to the bank as Fitzwilliam in order to take out money.

    • J "Joy" Dawn King

      Thank you, Sheila. What a terrific premise. Brenda is an awesome author who has the chops to pull something like this off. I will need to check this out.

    Alternate universe? Sounds like an awesome story

    • J "Joy" Dawn King

      It’s very much Jane Austen’s Regency England. I can’t say too much without giving the plot away but no alternate universe at all. Great idea though.

  4. Debbie Brown

    I think I love it! Looking forward to reading it!

    • J "Joy" Dawn King

      I can’t wait to get your impressions, Debbie. Soon!

  5. Debbie

    I like it

  6. Jan Cobb

    This sounds AMAZING!

    • J "Joy" Dawn King

      I sure do hope so, Jan. One thing I can guarantee is that it is long.

  7. J. W. Garrett

    Oh, this sounds like fun… I mean, this sounds amazing. I can’t wait to read it. Blessings on your progress or were you just teasing us? LOL! Happy Holidays in the manner in which you celebrate.

    • J "Joy" Dawn King

      Thank you very much. If everything works correctly and as planned the ARCs should be available in about three weeks. I’m hoping!

  8. AnitaP

    Sounds interesting. Not a huge angst fan but I can psych myself up to read with some preparation.

    • J "Joy" Dawn King

      I’ve endeavored to keep the angst low, Anita. You will have to tell me if I succeeded or not. I think my grandkids could read it with no nightmares at all. And my mom read the first draft with no trouble. You should be good.

  9. Doni Turiace

    I’m excited to read it!!

    • J "Joy" Dawn King

      Thank you, Doni. In truth, I’m excited for you to read it too.

  10. Kathy Berlin

    Sounds intriguing!

    • J "Joy" Dawn King

      It’s definitely different for me although the happily ever after for Darcy and Elizabeth is the same. I hope you enjoy this with a mug of steaming hot cocoa and a plate full of beignets.

    WHY???? Why do authors forget that some readers have very poor nerves???
    Have a pleasant time, Doris

    • J "Joy" Dawn King

      Haha! What a great comment, Doris. It’s in our job description, I think.

  12. Glynis

    I love that Elizabeth gets to like Darcy sooner rather than later! I’m hoping I can cope with the angst by the time it’s published

    • J "Joy" Dawn King

      Almost from the beginning they are brainstorming to solve the puzzle. Of course, Darcy can’t help but admire Elizabeth’s brain after noticing her lovely eyes. You can do this, Glynis. I know you can.

  13. caroleincanada

    The plot thickens and my mystery senses tingle! Can’t wait to read it!!

    • J "Joy" Dawn King

      Thank you, Carole. I do hope your mystery senses are on high alert.

  14. Lois Stacey

    Wow. Sounds great a sort of Regency Agatha Christie. Hope all our favourite characters put in an appearance Can’t wait to see it n the kindle shelves. I still think Mr Darcy’s Baby is my JAFF book of all times. Closely followed by A Father’s Sins. Good luck with this new one. Lois

    • J "Joy" Dawn King

      I think all of the usual characters are in the story (the Gardiners only get a mention). That’s so kind of you to say about Baby. I loved writing that story. A Father’s Sins traumatized me so much (being my first foray into publishing) that I still have writers block of the sequels. Some day, maybe. Thank you for your comments, Lois.

  15. Jennifer Redlarczyk

    This looks so fun I can hardly wait to read your new tail.

    • Jennifer Redlarczyk

      Make that tale. My phone auto corrected.

  16. Rose

    I always like all your stories.
    Ready when you are.

    • J "Joy" Dawn King

      That is so kind of you to say, Rose. Thank you! I sent it off for a final proofread last night with a promise it will be returned in two weeks. That’s fourteen days of anxiety for me. Soon!

  17. Marie H

    What do I think? I think i may need to find patience until I can read the whole thing! Can’t wait!

    • J "Joy" Dawn King

      You can do it, Marie! The time will fly by. It’s with my editor now.

  18. Cheryl Kepler

    Where is it? When do I get to read it? I love your stories!!!

  19. Katherine Gate

    I’m in. Sounds very exciting!
