Alone with Mr. Darcy
Author: Abigail Reynolds
Alone with Mr. Darcy.... Elizabeth Bennet can't imagine anything worse than being stranded by a blizzard in a tiny cottage with proud and unpleasant Mr. Darcy. But being trapped there for days - and nights - with an injured and confused Mr. Darcy who keeps saying the oddest things about her is even worse. At least he possesses the useful ability of lighting a fire to keep them from freezing to death. But when he puts his arms around her, she discovers the hearth isn't the only place he knows how to build a fire. And the little half-frozen kitten he finds in a woodpile isn't proving to be much of a chaperone. She doesn't really believe his promises to marry her if anyone finds out they spent two nights alone together, especially after learning he was betrayed by another woman in the past. When her worst fears are realized and her reputation is in tatters, she isn't surprised to discover Mr. Darcy has vanished into thin air, leaving her no choice but to find a husband as soon as possible before her whole family is ruined. Any husband will have to do, no matter how much she dislikes him. Even if she can't stop thinking of Mr. Darcy.... Praise for Abigail Reynolds "If you are unfamiliar with these riveting and romantic variations, they are retellings of Pride and Prejudice that take our beloved hero and heroine down a slightly altered path. Abigail Reynolds, one of my favorite Austenesque authors, is a skilled-story teller, an ardent admirer of Jane Austen, and quite proficient at infusing a lot of emotion, tension, and passion into her stories!" Austenesque Reviews "If romantics can overlook the subversion, they should enjoy witnessing Elizabeth as an industrious and caring wife, administering to Pemberley's tenants, learning how to be an equestrian and growing to love that perplexing Darcy."

There is but one Paris. Vincent Van Gogh Maud Heighton came to Lafond's famous Academie to paint, and to flee the constraints of her small English town. It took all her courage to escape, but Paris, she quickly realizes, is no place for a light purse. While her fellow students enjoy the dazzling decadence of the Belle Epoque, Maud slips into poverty. Quietly starving, and dreading another cold Paris winter, she stumbles upon an opportunity when Christian Morel engages her as a live-in companion to his beautiful young sister, Sylvie. Maud is overjoyed by her good fortune. With a clean room, hot meals, and an umbrella to keep her dry, she is able to hold her head high as she strolls the streets of Montmartre. No longer hostage to poverty and hunger, Maud can at last devote herself to her art. But all is not as it seems. Christian and Sylvie, Maud soon discovers, are not quite the darlings they pretend to be. Sylvie has a secret addiction to opium and Christian has an ominous air of intrigue. As this dark and powerful tale progresses, Maud is drawn further into the Morels' world of elegant deception. Their secrets become hers, and soon she is caught in a scheme of betrayal and revenge that will plunge her into the darkness that waits beneath this glittering city of light.

Todo por culpa de un hurón. Pues sí, porque, cuando la graciosa mascota comienza a sobrar en casa de ella, una noche de primavera en la que Milán parece mágica, Luis se transforma en el Príncipe Azul: se ocupará de Lucky, pero, a cambio, ella tendrá que posar para él una tarde a la semana, durante seis semanas. Un contrato auténtico, del que Luis perderá pronto el control, arrebatado por una pasión que lo llevará, en el juego del placer, más lejos de lo que nunca ha llegado. Y, mientras persigue la inspiración y, poco a poco, conquista a su presa, no se dará cuenta de que, en realidad, el cazador ha sido cazado y de que puede que, con ella, haya encontrado el amor. Pero ¿está listo para reconocerlo y aceptarlo? Todas las veces que quieras es una historia de erotismo arrollador, que desvela a las mujeres lo que todo hombre querría ocultarles, dentro y fuera de la cama: también los hombres se enamoran y, con el corazón, el sexo sí que no tiene límites…
