    The first volume of the classic collection of Middle Eastern stories, including “Tale of the Three Apples” and “Tale of the Trader and the Jinni.”   To be chosen by King Shahriyar as a wife was a death sentence. After a single night of marriage, he executed each of his wives. So when Scheherazade was picked, she knew her time on Earth had reached its end—unless she could hold the king’s interest. To that end, each night she spun a new enchanting, erotic, mesmerizing tale, always keeping the king guessing as to its conclusion—and sparing her life for another thousand and one nights.   The first volume of this collection, translated by the renowned British explorer Sir Richard Burton, begins the stories that Scheherazade told . . .

    "Happiness in marriage is entirely a matter of chance." –Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice 
    Miss Elizabeth Bennet believes the state of matrimony is not something to be entered into lightly. She is determined to do anything rather than marry without affection. On the other hand, indulging her cousin's fanciful marital scheme is harmless enough. What does she have to lose? Other than perhaps her heart? 
     
    Fitzwilliam Darcy had never been so bewitched by any woman as he was by Elizabeth. Owing to the inferiority of her circumstances in comparison to his own, he makes up his mind to admire her from afar. 
     
    The mind, however, does not always rule, especially in the game of love. Will Darcy lose his heart to Elizabeth, and in so doing, end up winning hers?

    These provocative Pride and Prejudice ‘what-if’ stories include all the passion you might expect of worldly gentlemen violently in love with equally headstrong women, along with enough obstacles, mischief, and intrigue to keep you turning the pages.  
     
     
    Featuring:  
     
    Book One: To Have His Cake (and Eat It Too): Mr. Darcy’s Tale  
     
    In this amorous, provocative, and at times tumultuous tale, Mr. Darcy is a wealthy young man of sense and education with considerable knowledge of the world. He is his own master. He enjoys his lifestyle and has no particular desire to marry at all.  
     
    That is until he renews his acquaintance with Miss Elizabeth Bennet—her circumstances greatly diminished pursuant to the sudden and tragic death of her father.  
     
    Book Two: What He Would Not Do: Mr. Darcy’s Tale Continues  
     
    Darcy has overcome all the obstacles to marrying Miss Elizabeth Bennet. Now, he must reaffirm his promise to be a man truly worthy of her affections.  
     
    Confronted, out of the blue, with the intimate knowledge of her husband’s rakish past, Elizabeth is obliged to reconsider long-held beliefs that otherwise threaten to tear them apart.  
     
    Book Three: Lady Harriette: Fitzwilliam’s Heart and Soul  
     
    For years, Colonel Richard Fitzwilliam enjoyed making light of Darcy's deep affection for Miss Elizabeth Bennet in what seemed destined to be an unrequited love. After Darcy won Elizabeth's heart and made her his wife, Richard continued his wont to taunt his lovesick friend.  
     
    Now, the proverbial shoe is on the other foot. It's Darcy's turn to make light of Richard's struggles to prove himself worthy of pleasing the woman in his life. Can Richard stay true to his purpose or will the worrisome winds of ill fate intervene?

    Insults and Disdain. Intrigue and Desire. 
    An impertinent stranger is thrown into Fitzwilliam Darcy's path and, even though he declares her tolerable but not handsome enough to tempt him, it is all he can do not to think of her. 
    Upon first making Mr. Darcy's acquaintance, Miss Elizabeth Bennet is quite fascinated with him. Then she discovers that the gentleman is haughty and above his company, and she wants nothing to do with him. 
    Still, the prospect of spending time in each other's company is beyond their power to resist. Will Darcy and Elizabeth stop lying to themselves and find in the other what's been missing in their lives?
