    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

    He thought his future was bleak, but a well-orchestrated misstep might just bring him the happiness he seeks. 
    Fitzwilliam Darcy has experienced the sadness that currently resides in the eyes of his friend, Charles Bingley. Determined to see Bingley happy, Darcy confesses his part in creating the despondence his friend now feels and prepares to suffer the separation that will ensue. 
    However, what he expects and what he gets are very different things. Instead of facing a lonely life filled with heartache, he finds himself standing at the beginning of a path leading to not only his friend's happiness but his own as well. 
    It will not, however, be an easy path. There will be obstacles to overcome, but with a little help and scheming, no impediment will be too insurmountable – not even Caroline Bingley.

    Take five different paths to happily ever after with Darcy and his friends. 
     
    In this collection of five Pride and Prejudice inspired books by Leenie Brown, love will be put to the test. But whether insults, danger, or foolish actions threaten, true love will not be thwarted. For love will conquer all when given a chance. 
     
    Oxford Cottage 
     
    Elizabeth Bennet expects to complete the challenge her father has set before her at Oxford Cottage. What she does not expect is to meet a handsome stranger and fall in love, nor does she expect to find herself in a situation where she will have to keep both herself and her young companion safe. 
     
    For Peace of Mind   
     
    When Elizabeth Bennet is sent to London to stay with her relatives, Fitzwilliam Darcy is the last person she expects or wants to see. On advice from her aunt, she agrees to give the gentleman a second chance at making a first impression.  However, just as their relationship begins to blossom, danger threatens. Action, intended to separate them, instead provokes declarations of love. Now on the path to matrimony, a new adversary creates a seemingly impossible choice, testing the strength of their bonds. 
     
    Listen to Your Heart 
     
    When Anne de Bourgh finds some hidden papers, her view of the future changes in light of her father's wishes. However, her declaration to follow her heart and choose her own future causes discord and forces secrets to be revealed.  Sometimes the path to happily ever after can be strewn with danger and intrigue. 
     
    Through Every Storm 
     
    A gambler, a profligate and forcibly married to the silly daughter of a country gentleman, no one expected George Wickham to amount to much, nor did they expect him to fall deeply in love with his wife. When Lydia takes an unplanned trip in the company of another gentleman, leaving Wickham and her children behind, he will be forced to face his fears and fight for those he holds dear. 
     
    With the Colonel's Help 
     
    Colonel Richard Fitzwilliam had only meant to improve Miss Elizabeth's opinion of his cousins, but, instead of lending aid, he inadvertently makes things worse. There is, of course, only one thing to do. He must confess his error to his cousin, for when a gentleman of honour creates a problem, he must see the trouble resolved. It is, therefore, under the watchful eye of the colonel that Darcy and Elizabeth begin down a path of greater understanding until fate and relations intervene, creating a situation bordering on impossible. 
     
    The five books in Darcy and... A Pride and Prejudice Collection are just a few of Leenie Brown's numerous Pride and Prejudice inspired stories.  If you like well-written sweet romance, dotted with poignant moments,  touched with humor, and featuring the unexpected then you'll love these tales where family ties are strong, understanding runs deep, and love rises above any obstacle. 
     
    So, put the kettle on, grab your copy of Darcy and... A Pride and Prejudice Collection, and slip into a world of sweet romantic indulgence today.

Later in the work he aligns himself with a "renascent or modern religion ... neither atheist nor Buddhist nor Mohammedan nor Christian ... [that] he has found growing up in himself.
