Mr. Darcy’s Missing Bride – Prologue

Thirst. Elizabeth that she had never truly been thirsty before. Before, drinking happened without a second thought; a servant was called, and Elizabeth drank. Now, her tongue lay like dry dough in her mouth. Elizabeth ran her fingers along the damp, stone floor. Her chained leg clinked with her movement. The links ran to an iron ring nailed into the wall, too dark and too far away to see.

Mr. Darcy’s Missing Bride – Chapter 1

It was early morning, and the sun was resplendent, its rays coloring the budding floral displays and grasslands that appointed the gardens of Rosings. Elizabeth Bennet delighted in the patches of warm sunlight on her skin. It was the edge of summer, the end of spring and the weather was at its best: not too hot or cold, but warmth touching the earth and encouraging the flowers to bloom.

Mr. Darcy’s Missing Bride – Chapters 2

“My nephew always makes dining that much more lively,” Lady Catherine de Bourgh waved her handkerchief at the two men seated at her table. She was making a point to the guests in attendance: Mr. and Mrs. Collins and Elizabeth Bennet. “My daughter, Anne, is always so excited to see Mr. Darcy, aren’t you my dear?” She inclined her head at a pale, young woman sitting next to her at the table. Anne gave a half-hearted smile in return.

Mr. Darcy’s Missing Bride – Chapters 3

Book in hand, Elizabeth headed to her favorite reading nook, a small tree at the top of a hill, fifteen minutes or so from Charlotte’s house. Maria did not wake before eleven in the morning unless prodded, and Charlotte had insisted Elizabeth feel comfortable walking about wherever she wished in the morning, with or without her friend who preferred less active morning pursuits. While it impressed Elizabeth with how well Charlotte managed Mr. Collins, she could not imagine such a life for herself. Elizabeth wished to marry for love.

Lady Catherine de Bourgh paced the length of her library, clasping Mr. Collins’ all too delighted missive of two full pages. She was not gauche enough to reduce herself to foul language, instead detailing Miss Elizabeth Bennet’s lowly status – the daughter of a baronet with her family estate entailed – and the clear faults in her character, which the young lady made no efforts to correct.

The rocking of the carriage and the drawn shades gave Elizabeth the feeling that she was in her own world, the outside blew asunder on its own axis. The trip to London was long, not as lengthy as the trip to Longbourn, but this road was choppier than she recalled.

Under normal circumstances, Mr. Darcy had patience with his aunt. He sat through her tirades about one piece of society gossip or another, or her condescension of the servants, the abhorrent state of the grounds or some supposed slight in her life.

Mr. Darcy’s Missing Bride – Chapters 14

It was past nine when Mr. Darcy arrived at his London town house. He could not, with any politeness, pay call to a lady at her home after dark, as much as he might wish. Besides, if she was angry, which she had a right to be considering the liberties he had taken with her on their last walk, he would better make his explanations in the light of morning when both had occasion to sleep.

Elizabeth sat in a small boat on a still pond tethered to a wooden dock. The tether was very long, and thus, the boat drifted to the middle. Mist obscured everything beyond the pond’s banks and dock. Every direction she looked was mist, and because it shrouded everything, she felt safe.

“It is not enough.” Richard pressed his index fingers at the bridge of his nose. He and Mr. Darcy stood in Mr. Gardiner’s study with Mr. Gardiner and Mr. Bennet. Mr. Gardiner sat at his desk with Mr. Bennet in a chair on the opposite side. Two glasses of port sat atop it, the one closest to Mr. Bennet half-empty.

Much about Brighton recommended itself to Elizabeth. Each day since they had arrived a week ago had offered pleasant weather with only one day of rain. She adored the salt scent of the air and the feel of sand between her toes. The sea, while still chill from winter, cooled her feet as she walked along the shoreline, collecting shells.

Despite Mrs. Forster’s hinting that they leave earlier for the Assembly before, “the eligible gentleman are already engaged with other ladies,” Lydia’s insistence upon changing three times meant it was near eleven before she, Elizabeth, and Mrs. Forster arrived. Elizabeth glanced over the hall, caught between relief and disappointment at Mr. Darcy’s absence. Not that she had expected Mr. Darcy to subject himself to an Assembly with the common masses, no matter his polite agreement days earlier.

Darcy’s dance with Elizabeth went far too swiftly. She was oddly quiet, her gaze abstracted. Perhaps she still despised him as she had stated at the culmination of his failed proposal. But she had not despised him earlier. Her quick mind and wit had been on full display, dark eyes glittering as she discussed her impressions of Mr. Dunham.

Mr. Darcy had to get into one of those crates. If it was Spanish wine, as Mr. Dunham had said, then a quick look would verify the contents and Mr. Darcy’s conscience would be appeased. But with Wickham involved, Darcy suspected the contents of the crates were more problematic. Something dangerous.

An Unsuitable Governess – Chapter 1

Beneath a gray and weeping sky, a Royal Mail stagecoach trundled north towards Derbyshire. Miss Elizabeth Bennet wished to pretend it was all a grand adventure, but three days being jounced about until her muscles and teeth ached and three nights in tiny coaching inn rooms with the thin, ill-tempered maid Mrs. Gardiner had insisted Elizabeth bring as a chaperone, had robbed Elizabeth of her sense of wonder. Her eyelids were stiff, her hair itched, and she stank.

“Highwaymen you say?”

Mr. Darcy did not like the glint in his cousin’s eye. Col. Richard Fitzwilliam had been given leave from the front at the behest of his father the Earl.

The air was cool and the sun uncharacteristically bright as Elizabeth and Rose sat together in the high branches of a flowering tree.

The next morning, Col. Fitzwilliam and Mr. Darcy left in a carriage to pay a call to neighboring estates and villages. He was gone when Rose and Elizabeth returned from their morning art lesson and picnic. Elizabeth was caught between relief and disappointment at the news. Was Mr. Darcy as nervous to see her as she was to speak with him? Or perhaps this had always been his plan? Mr. Darcy had greater experience of the world than Elizabeth had. Perhaps conversations and touches like the ones they had shared the night prior were common for him?

The truth hurt, but Mr. Darcy was right. Elizabeth had forgotten her place. She had begun to think of Pemberley as her home, and her closeness to Rose, whom she viewed more as a little sister than a charge, had led her to treat them all more as family. But she was a servant. Rose might be dear to her, but Elizabeth had sisters of her own. Sisters she had abandoned to take work here.
