    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 . . .

    ❝There could have never been two hearts so open, no tastes so similar, no feelings so in unison, no countenances so beloved.❞ –Jane Austen 
    A Limited Edition Collection! 
    Here's a chance to add to your growing collection of Pride and Prejudice 'what-if' stories with two P. O. Dixon stories for under the price of one, plus a special bonus story just because. 
     
     
    Book One - Only a Heartbeat Away 
     
    Long before they meet, Miss Elizabeth Bennet entertains notions of Mr. Darcy as being good-natured, compassionate, and exceedingly handsome. Indeed, everything a gentleman ought to be. In light of the ardent disdain that he incites in her family and friends at the Meryton assembly, reconciling her favorable impression of him proves deeply unsettling. Hence she goes about making out his true nature. Boasting to the gentleman of an acquaintance with his worst enemy, however, hardly recommends her to him. 
     
    Tempestuous sparks promise to ignite into passionate flames as Darcy and Elizabeth endeavor to sketch each other’s character. 
     
    Praise for Only a Heartbeat Away: 
     
    ❝This is one story that captured my heart and soul! Thanks to Ms. Dixon for another riveting adaptation of a most beloved book!!❞ –Liz C., Amazon Reader

    Book Two - Miss Elizabeth Bennet: Where the Heart Lives 
     
    Mr. Darcy emerges as a hero in Miss Elizabeth Bennet’s eyes almost from the start. With such a beginning, one might think the journey to happily ever after for Jane Austen’s beloved couple would be absent any bumps in the road. On the contrary. There are quite a few fires to be put out along the way. 
     
    Praise for Miss Elizabeth Bennet:

    Her husband’s lack of fortune never concerned Lady Harriette. She loves him. Young, spirited, and confident, she has always enjoyed a charmed life. When Richard’s past lands on their doorstep, suspicion rears its head, and Harriette’s questions go unanswered. Seeking explanations on her own is her only recourse. Will she uncover more than she bargained for?

    "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?
