Hello from sunny (and weirdly, also snowy) Arizona desert.
I’ve been hard at work on A Gentleman’s Honor and am thrilled to say that it’s finally available for presale and the release date is fast approaching--April 13th!
If you’ve made your way here because you followed the newsletter link in the back of the book—thank you.
When my online readers finished the draft of AGH, they wanted to know what had happened to Henry Fitzwilliam and Lord Bartholomew. While there was no room for that story within the covers of AGH, which was told entirely from Darcy and Elizabeth’s point of view, Henry deserved his own story. You should receive a copy of “A Gentleman’s Justice” with your newsletter subscription (after the release of AGH).
Now that AGH is finished, I’m hard at work on Interwoven, my tenth JAFF novel, which will take us into the realm of fantasy. Elizabeth has been born with powerful magic and cannot understand why she has not been “called” to the home of mages—Pemberley—so she makes her way there to hopefully discover the answer. Darcy, who has been left in control of Pemberley, is not amused.
I will offer newsletter subscribers a sneak peak as this story develops, and I’m sure to be asking for your opinions along the way!
For now, the newsletter will be quarterly, and the blog posts will be occasional—I want to spend as much time as possible writing new stories for you all—but I promise I will work hard to make each one worth the wait.
Someone wants Elizabeth Bennet dead. It’s all Fitzwilliam Darcy’s fault. Elizabeth Bennet wants the truth from Mr. Darcy. When she follows him from the ballroom to insist upon it, she becomes an unwilling witness to a scandalous scene. And for once, she cannot blame Mr. Darcy for disdaining his company. Not even when he departs Netherfield in the middle of the ball. When Darcy returns to London, he leaves both Miss Elizabeth Bennet and his growing infatuation for her behind. Or so he believes. For soon, their paths cross again under the most painful of circumstances. Elizabeth suddenly finds herself dependent upon Mr. Darcy. With the gradual unveiling of his character, she is surprised by a burgeoning affection for him. Will her heart survive their inevitable parting? Thrust together out of necessity, Elizabeth and Darcy must discover the culprit responsible for their predicament. But whoever has harmed Elizabeth is still looking for her, and Darcy cannot hide her forever.
