    The denizens of a crumbling Dublin hotel are the subject of a meddling photographer in this Booker Prize–shortlisted “masterpiece” (Irish Times). Once a flourishing establishment, O’Neill’s Hotel has fallen on hard times. The same could be said for the people who live there. Among them are Mrs. Sinnott, the elderly, deaf, and mute proprietor; her drunkard son, Eugene; Morrissey, a small-time pimp; and the grim, lone porter O’Shea. But what might sound bleak to some holds irresistible allure for globetrotting photographer Ivy Eckdorf.   Hearing stories of O’Neill’s Hotel from an ocean liner barman, Eckdorf catches the unmistakable whiff of human interest. Surely some tragic story hides within this crumbling corner of Ireland. Now she intends to uncover that story, frame it just so, and turn it into her next coffee table book. Though she has no connection to these hard-luck souls, she has arrived. And no one’s life will be the same—not even hers.   “An astounding richness of pathos, humour and tragedy.” —Francis King   “A small work of art [that] reaches antic heights.” —The New York Times

    From awkward and unlovable to handsome and loved. 
    Large, awkward, unlovable, and destined to fail -- that is who William Collins has always been told he was, and while he might have accepted the first three monikers, he's worked hard to ensure the last one does not become true. 
    Kitty Bennet has never lacked for attention from gentlemen, but while she's proficient at flirting, she has never had her heart touched by any of the potential suitors who have sat in Longbourn's sitting room. 
    That is her heart was never touched until now when the awkwardly endearing heir to Longbourn takes up residence in her home. But how does one encourage a gentleman to love her when he's seemingly unaffected by fluttering lashes and demure looks? 
    And how can someone as inept, as Collins thinks he is, ever win the heart of a lady as charming as Kitty Bennet? 
    It will take determination and a little help as well as the realization that sometimes the battle for the heart is played out in the mind. 
    Master of Longbourn is part of Leenie Brown's Dash of Darcy and Companions collection of Pride and Prejudice inspired novellas. If you like well-written sweet romance featuring an unlikely hero who must blossom from ugly duckling to majestic swan, then you will love this story about Collins overcoming the edicts of his father to become what he wishes to be while claiming the lady who is the desire of his heart. 
    So, put the kettle on, grab your copy of Master of Longbourn, and slip into a world of sweet and endearing romantic indulgence today.

    This series is a re-imagining of Jane Austen's classic tale, Pride and Prejudice. When Mr. Bennet makes a choice to help his eldest daughters find happiness, he sets off a chain of events that will affect the lives of not only all his daughters but also many of Darcy's relatives. Enjoy these stories as a Fitzwilliam family secret unfolds, new loves are formed in the face of opposition, and an old love is rekindled. 
    Her Father's Choice 
    Sometimes a father knows what is best for his child. At least Mr. Bennet trusts he does. Seeing the potential of a good match for his beloved Lizzy but knowing her ability to hold a grudge, he puts a plan into action that forces a marriage between Darcy and Elizabeth. 
    No Other Choice 
    Mary Bennet has never been the center of attention and rarely the object of any man's affections, but that is about to change. Shortly after Darcy and Elizabeth's wedding, Mary travels to London to prepare for the season, a season she is determined to finish with either a husband or a glorious tale to tell, even if it means learning to tolerate Lord Rycroft. 
    His Inconvenient Choice 
    Colonel Fitzwilliam has always known his father would try to force him into a marriage of convenience, but after Kitty Bennet captures his heart as she shivered in the cold on the streets of Meryton, he realizes his only chance at happiness lies in making an inconvenient choice. However, it is a choice that will not go unchallenged. As family secrets are revealed, it is a choice that, in creating happiness for the colonel, could destroy his  family. 
    Her Heart's Choice 
    To Anne, it had seemed simple enough.  Place an advertisement in the paper, interview the gentlemen who responded, and select the best husband.  But nothing is as easy as it seems.  Indeed, many things are quite the opposite of how they appear.  How is a lady to find a safe and secure marriage when her ideals are turned on their head ─ especially when her heart yearns for a man who is wholly unsuitable?
