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:



  • Sheila L. Majczan

    Wow, up close and personal – this is so different from so many covers which use faces or distant shots of the full figure(s) – it must attract attention in our JAFF world. Good luck, Joy. Love it. Did you find it from a gallery of photos or was it your idea and then someone posed for it? Well done.

    • J "Joy" Dawn King

      I find it a challenge to choose the image for my covers, Sheila. I don’t have an artistic eye. The gallery I chose this particular image from is at: His photographs are lovely and the highest quality. I used him for “Yes, Mr. Darcy” as well.

      The cover image for “The Abominable Mr. Darcy” was a photo shoot I arranged with my designer. I can’t believe a small town gal like me can do things like this half way across the world. Amazing!

      It’s far more pleasurable to write the insides than worry about the outsides. But someone has to do it.
