    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 . . .

    "That the wish of giving happiness to you might add force to the other inducements which led me on, I shall not attempt to deny." - Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice 
     
    Mr. Bennet had very often wished that, instead of spending his whole income, he had laid by an annual sum for the better provision of his children, and of his wife, if she survived him.  
     
    Alas, he did not live long enough to do it.  
     
    After her father's untimely death, Miss Elizabeth Bennet reads a letter from him in which he tasks her with the protection of her family. 
     
    Elizabeth is willing to do everything in her power to fulfill her father's dying wish, even if it means marrying a man she cannot love. 
     
    There is, however, one man whom she can love. Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy. The two start out as friends, but Mr. Darcy wants more. Much more.  
     
    Surely Elizabeth will not always sacrifice her own happiness for the sake of her family. Or will she?
