    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’s an annoyance. She’s a puzzle. Together, they make sparks fly. 
    Caroline Bingley ‘s greatest desire is to marry a wealthy gentleman with an estate. However, Pemberley and its master have been lost.  While this is a most unfortunate turn of events, it’s not the worst of it, for Caroline’s brother insists that he will marry his most recent angel despite the lady’s ridiculous family. 
    And Caroline? Well, she must return to Netherfield and perform the part of perfect hostess for her brother and the gentleman she has lost, as well as his sister and his annoyingly direct cousin. 
    Colonel Richard Fitzwilliam has always found Caroline Bingley attractive. However, by focusing on her sharp tongue, he has deftly managed to avoid any entanglement that might threaten his plan not to marry.  
    Until now. 
    Having been challenged to re-evaluate his opinion of Caroline, Richard has found himself unable to resist the puzzle she presents. 
    While Richard attempts to understand and Caroline attempts not to offend, love works its magic causing hearts to become engaged. But is love’s enchantment powerful enough for a gentleman bent on remaining single and a lady equally as determined to marry only a man with an estate to come to an understanding? Or will love find itself rejected and shivering under the stars of a winter’s night? 
    One Winter’s Eve is the sequel to Two Days Before Christmas and just one of Leenie Brown’s numerous Pride and Prejudice inspired stories. If you like well-written, sweet romance starring a flawed heroine in need of guidance and a determined hero bent on seeing her improve, then you'll love this story where love rises above imperfections revealing itself as an instrument that is matchless in its ability to affect change and bring lasting joy. 
    So, put the kettle on, pick up your copy of One Winter’s Eve, and snuggle in for a sweet romantic read.

    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.
