    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 . . .

    In Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Mr. Bennet had this to say about Mr. Darcy: "We all know him to be a proud, unpleasant sort of man..."  
     
    Miss Elizabeth Bennet, herself, spoke of Mr. Darcy's arrogance, his conceit, and his selfish disdain of the feelings of others—the last man in the world whom she could ever be prevailed on to marry. The gentleman's housekeeper, Mrs. Reynolds, described him as the best landlord and master who ever lived. Such varying accounts as these are exceedingly puzzling, indeed. 
     
    This amorous, provocative, and at times tumultuous tale, illustrates Mr. Darcy as a wealthy young man of sense and education, as well as considerable worldly experience—not at all uncommon for Regency-era gentlemen of his social standing. He is his own master. He enjoys his lifestyle and has no particular desire to marry at all. That is until he renews his acquaintance with Miss Elizabeth Bennet—her own circumstances greatly diminished pursuant to the sudden and tragic death of her father. 
     
    Follow Mr. Darcy's journey from a man who, indeed, is proud and haughty, to one who seeks to please a woman worthy of being pleased. 
     
    To Have His Cake (and Eat It Too): Mr. Darcy's Tale ~ A Regency historical fiction adaptation of Jane Austen's timeless classic Pride and Prejudice.
