Transforming Mr. Darcy: A Magical Pride and Prejudice Variation
What if Elizabeth Bennet had a fairy godmother?
Elizabeth Bennet is envious of her sister Jane. Not for her beauty or her disposition, but because her fairy godmother is everything that Elizabeth's is not.
When Mr. Darcy insults Elizabeth’s looks, Mildread Driftwort is incensed to hear her handiwork defamed. Now, instead of nursing the grievance herself, Elizabeth is forced to defend this conceited man who has no idea what he’s done.
Fitzwilliam Darcy is scandalized to witness Miss Elizabeth Bennet speaking to herself at a country assembly. After refusing to dance with her, he begins to experience a variety of inexplicable illnesses. He can’t sleep, he can’t speak, he can’t even walk. Then something even worse befalls him—he discovers he is falling in love with her.
Despite Elizabeth’s warning, Mr. Darcy commits blunder after blunder. Yet as she works to mitigate Mildread’s wrath, Elizabeth realizes that Mr. Darcy is not the unmannerly oaf her fairy godmother believes him to be—and though she is certain nothing can come of it, she is falling in love with him.
As magic swirls and the couple faces impending disaster, Elizabeth finds that Mr. Darcy may not be the only one who is transformed.

Elizabeth Bennet is living a lie.
She’s known since she was fifteen that she isn't truly a Bennet, but who is she? Are the people and places that appear in her dreams just a sign of her active imagination, or are they memories of her true family? Could the stories she'd told Jane when they were children not be stories at all?

After all, nobody she knows will meet her in Hertfordshire.
She’s mostly right.

Then her cousin, the Marquess of Tavistock, arrives from London with news: Elizabeth’s Aunt Olivia is seriously ill, and there’s been a threat against both Russell women. It’s not long before there are also rumors floating around London about the source of Phillip Russell’s wealth. This is in addition to the letter purportedly written by Darcy’s father insisting that his son marry Anne de Bourgh as well as several disturbing thefts from Darcy's own townhome.
As the attacks pile up, tempers begin to flare. Will Darcy be able to stop the culprit before Elizabeth's powerful Russell relations try to separate them for good?
