    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.

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 . . .

    Broken promises often lead to disappointed hopes and dreams and even broken hearts. 
    Such was the aftermath of the Netherfield party's departure from Hertfordshire on the heels of the ball. What if Mr. Darcy returns with his friend Mr. Bingley to Hertfordshire during the Christmas season? 
     
    Darcy's reasoning is sound. He simply means to be of service to his lovesick friend. There's also the matter of wanting to protect Miss Elizabeth Bennet from his nemesis, George Wickham. 
     
    What if Darcy's true motive is of a rather more personal nature—one that he is not even aware of himself? 
     
    When asked, by those who know her best, how she feels about Mr. Darcy's return, Elizabeth insists his reasons can have nothing at all to do with her. Blinded by her dislike of the proud gentleman from almost the first moment of their acquaintance, will Elizabeth finally see what others see when the season brings Mr. Darcy and her back together again? 
     
    Which that Season Brings is a delightful 'happy for now' novella which reimagines Jane Austen's timeless classic, combining just enough of the old to satisfy your want of nostalgia and enough of the new to quench your desire for another romantic escape with Darcy and Elizabeth.
