Book Description

Fitzwilliam Darcy, An Honourable Man is a Pride and Prejudice variation. Not a simple retelling, it is an intriguing new story that does not follow canon. It is rated for mature audiences. British spelling is used, so honor is spelled honour, neighbor is neighbour, defenseless is defenceless, inquire is enquire, etc.

Leaving England after his disastrous proposal was refused at Hunsford, Darcy spent two lonely years in Scotland and Ireland before returning home to face Elizabeth Bennet, certain that he could regard her as an indifferent acquaintance.

Events that transpired in his absence have left Elizabeth a changed woman. The victim of a marriage by deception to Count Stefano, she has suffered greatly at his hands.

Will Mr. Darcy rescue the woman he vowed to forget?


Please note that this book is written using British spelling/words in lieu of American as much as possible. Words like parlor, rumor, center, inquire, realize, jewelry, napkin will be written as parlour, rumour, centre, enquire, realise, jewellery, serviette, etc. If you think you have found an error, please look at the British spelling/meaning of the word first.

More About the Author


Welcome to my author page; let me tell you a little about myself.

Before my obsession with all things Jane Austen, I worked as an administrative assistant to the president of a CPA firm. No longer working in that industry, thankfully, I enjoy spending time with my family and indulging my love of storytelling.

Born on a farm in Cullman, Alabama, I proudly admit to being a country girl, and after years of living in the city, I have finally achieved my dream of moving back to the country. My husband and I now reside on a three acre mini-farm, sporting chickens and numerous rescued dogs and cats.

Always a voracious reader, I rediscovered Jane Austen books after watching the 2005 Pride and Prejudice movie. Searching for everything relating to Miss Austen, I eventually stumbled into the world of Jane Austen Fan Fiction. After reading many of other people's stories, I decided to try my hand at writing a tale that kept coming to mind and began posting that story on online.

By November of 2010, I started my own forum, DarcyandLizzy.com, and many readers followed me to this site. Several of my friends insisted that I publish, and in April 2011, Fitzwilliam Darcy an Honourable Man became available on Amazon.com.

It was followed by Mr. Darcy's Forbidden Love in December 2012, and I am currently posting my next book, Darcy and Elizabeth, A Most Unlikely Couple on the forum. It will be published this summer.

Anyone is welcome to join the forum and read my new story before it is published as well as stories by an array of talented JAFF writers. Just register at www.darcyandlizzy.com/forum.

In addition, just so you know, any similarity between the names in my books and those of television or movie characters is purely coincidental. Other than those that belong to Jane Austen, the character's name come entirely from my imagination. I make them up as I go along.

5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging story 25 Jan. 2012
By Chris
Format:Kindle Edition
I thoroughly enjoyed this non-canon compliant story. Although, the characters were not placed in the traditional P&P storyline, and there are some non P&P characters in the story, I thought that in essence Darcy and Elizabeth remained true to their Jane Austen roots.

The author writes well, throws in several twists, a truly horrid villian and overall gives us an engaging and entertaining story.

If you enjoy P&P what-ifs where the characters are placed in stituations that are totally different from the original story I think that you will enjoy this story. If you do not like such stories do not bother reading this book.

This is a Pride & Prejudice variation which varies quite widely from the original book. Aside from the changes unfolding as you read there are a number of changes to past events which aren't obvious at first, such as a much smaller age gap between Georgiana and Darcy, 3 years instead of 12, and the history of George Wickham is also different - there was no attempted elopement with Georgiana and Wickham never joined the militia, meaning that hasn't been to Meryton and has never met the Bennets. Following the disastrous Hunsford proposal Darcy informed Bingley that he had been mistaken in his estimation of Jane Bennet's feelings towards Bingley. Feeling a need to escape for a while Darcy has spent the last two years visiting his estates in Scotland and Ireland. Personal mail wasn't forwarded at his request. Finally, Darcy feels that he is over his unrequited love for Miss Elizabeth Bennet, and he is ready to marry and produce the requisite heir for Pemberley.

`It had taken a long time, but he was certain now of one thing - he could meet her as an indifferent and common acquaintance.'

Georgiana is unaware of the reason for her brother's prolonged absence but is thrilled that he is finally thinking of marrying. Although she and her husband have been unable to have a child of their own she wants her brother to be happy and she looks forward to lavishing love on a niece or nephew. Georgiana has a candidate for a bride too, her husbands' step-brothers' widow, a Mrs Preston. She is plain, but aside from that Georgina feels that she might fit Darcy's personality quite well. Having given up on love Darcy is amenable to considering a marriage with Mrs Preston, who he feels will not expect him to love her.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favourite Variation ! ! ! 2 April 2015
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am a self confessed JAFF fan. This is probably my favourite variation of the hundred plus I've read.
Although those who are sticklers for Regency etiquette may not agree.
The story keeps you hooked especially when Darcy visits the grave(Will not elaborate, don't want to spoil it).
Even on re reading I found it hard to put down, at 446 that's
no mean feat, most full length variations run between 180 -300 pages.

3.0 out of 5 stars It was a little long 4 Dec. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I liked the idea of the story, but found that it was a little repetitive and the flash backs were a little excessive when it could have been tied up in the story. It seemed drag on when it could have finished earlier, and although it used P&P characters any Jo Bloggs would have done. It was a little expensive too for the quality of writing. Not the best variation I've read.

Loved this story, after Hunsford Darcy goes on a tour abroad for a couple of years only to come back to find that Mr Bennet has died and that Jane and Mr Bingley have married. Elizabeth is sold into a marriage of convenience by her mother, with what can only be said as a brute. He abuses her so badly that Jane takes her in and hides her from him. Has there as been a fire at his home and a body was found it was identified as Elizabeth and buried near her father.

When he arrives at Netherfield and is told of her death Darcy is heart broken. He later accidentally meets her in the house and then the Bingley's then tell him the story about what has happened and why they have told everyone she is dead. Elizabeth is nothing like the young lady he left behind she is broken in spirit and is what would be called frightened of her own shadow. This story is a beautiful story of everlasting love.

I would recommend this to everyone who loves Darcy and Elizabeth as well as the rest of the Pride and Prejudice characters.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not so great 14 Sept. 2013
By fxyd
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was ready to give up a about halfway through, not as good as her other variation. But it might have been better had I read this one first; but then again perhaps not. I found the story very mundane and the constant use of flashbacks got my nerves.
