Mr. Darcy Faces Wickham

Genre: Historical Romance, Austen-esque Fiction

Series: Elizabeth Said, Darcy Said #4

The blurb reads as follows: Mr. Darcy fears he might have damaged his budding love affair with Miss Elizabeth and ruined his chance for future happiness with the most exciting and intoxicating woman he has ever met.

The relationship had been coming along nicely, their regard and affection for each other growing with each passing day until Mr. Darcy came to the realization that what he once considered a close friendship had become all-encompassing love. He wants nothing more than to spend every moment of each day in her presence and is even growing fond of Mrs. Bennet!

For his part, Mr. Bingley is content with his pursuit of Miss Bennet and his plans to ask permission of her father to propose marriage.

All of that is threatened, however, when the men happen upon the sisters in Meryton, where they are visiting with Mr. Darcy’s nemesis, George Wickham, the man whose ill treatment almost destroyed Mr. Darcy’s sister, Georgiana, the year previous.

The repercussions of his curt dismissal of the man, coupled with his horse almost running Mr. Wickham down when he leaves worry him. Will Miss Elizabeth change her mind and refuse him permission to call on her as Mr. Bingley fears?

Mr. Darcy’s efforts to explain his actions seem to calm everyone’s anger, with the exception of Miss Lydia, who cannot find it within herself to forgive him. With her willingness to accept his grudging apology, Mr. Darcy’s hope for the future is restored.

However, an unfortunate incident in Meryton a day or so later concludes with Mr. Wickham lying on the ground and Mr. Darcy threatening his life. As Mr. Bingley pulls him away, Mr. Darcy discovers Miss Elizabeth and Miss Bennet watching, horrified at what has transpired.

Is this the end of Mr. Darcy’s promising courtship of Miss Elizabeth? If that happens, will Miss Bennet reject Mr. Bingley’s attention in sympathy with her sister?

And what of Miss Lydia? Will Mr. Wickham’s depraved plans for her come to fruition followed by his promised assault on Miss Elizabeth’s virtue?

The answers lie in Mr. Darcy Faces Wickham, part four in the Elizabeth Said, Darcy Said series from Colin Rowland.

Author Bio

Colin Rowland is the brother of Jann Rowland, a well-known author in the realm of transformative works centered around Pride and Prejudice. Colin’s interest in the works of Jane Austen began with advice from Jann to read Pride and Prejudice. After having done so, Colin felt inspired by Austen’s work, and he now spends his free time penning manuscripts centered around the Regency England period. Such a genre has been a natural choice for him, for while he has always loved to read and enjoys almost every genre there is, his favorites delve into historical periods, from Ancient Rome to World War Two and everything in between.

Though Colin has lived most of his life in Canada, he dislikes cold weather with a passion. This dislike led him to sell his house and move with his wife to the big island of Hawaii, where he loved every minute of the eighteen months they were there. Since returning to Canada, he has settled down in the small city of Medicine Hat, Alberta with his wife of forty-plus years. Together they are the proud parents of two sons and two daughters plus dearly loved grandchildren. They also act as servants to two dogs: a Shih Tzu, who has been with them she was a puppy, and a Border Collie puppy he took in to ease the void caused when his former best friend, their senior Border Collie, crossed the Rainbow Bridge.
