    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.
