My Own Mr. Darcy
September, 2013

After being dragged to the 2005 movie Pride and Prejudice by her mother, sixteen-year-old Elizabeth’s life changes when Matthew Macfadyen’s Mr. Darcy appears on the screen. Lizzie falls hard and makes a promise to herself that she will settle for nothing less than her own Mr. Darcy. This ill-advised pledge threatens to ruin any chance of finding true love. During the six intervening years, she has refused to give any interested suitors a chance. They weren’t Mr. Darcy enough.

Coerced by her roommate, Elizabeth agrees to give the next interested guy ten dates before she dumps him. That guy is Chad, a kind and thoughtful science teacher and swim coach. While she’s dating Chad, her dream comes true in the form of a wealthy bookstore owner named Matt Dawson, who looks and acts like her Mr. Darcy. Of course she has to follow her dream. But as Elizabeth simultaneously dates a regular guy and the dazzling Mr. Dawson, she’s forced to re-evaluate what it was she loved about Mr. Darcy in the first place.

Being an avid Jane Austen lover (even taken myself to her home in Bath---it was on my bucket list), I have read my share of sequels and prequels and take offs of Pride and Prejudice....your book by far, is one of the best contemporary written books I have read....so much so..that my own editor sent me an email about making my deadline to my third book....as I could not put yours down....heading off to buy The Gifted....Laurie Bumpus (aka Diane Culver)

I couldn't find a way to contact you either. At the end of the Husband Maker Series you asked readers to contact you. I looked and looked and could find nothing. I even signed up for your newsletter but haven't heard anything on that either. However, I did want to tell you how much I LOVED the Husband Maker Series. I could not put the book down and went from one to two to three without stopping. It was so interesting and fun to just watch these characters live, love, and grow. A great read. I do want to ask one question because it is important to me. Do you always leave a cliffhanger at the end of your books or are most of them just a standalone read? Since I had all three books in this series it was not a problem but I want to be sure I have an ending before I read a book. So, is the cliffhangers in this book just a one time deal? Or what? Thanks -
