I am so excited that From Highbury with Love will be released next week! It was so much fun to write that it got rather longer than most of my other stories, coming in at about 86k words! In the meantime, here is another exclusive excerpt! Darcy, completely unaware that he had been the catalyst for more than one noteworthy conversation, walked back to Donwell Abbey with Mr.

They used the footpath again, and a light, but chill wind was blowing in clouds from the east. The fine morning was turning into a gray afternoon, and it was one of those December days which would probably end in a cold, drenching rain. The men made good time and conversation was sparse, both being wrapped in their thoughts. As friendships went, theirs was on the trajectory to be one of the solid, quiet sorts. They would probably not see each other above once a year, probably less, but would spend that occasional visit in serious, open, and useful dialogue about their respective duties.

If circumstances allowed for more frequency, they might someday describe the other as one of their closest friends. In intelligence, they were matched; in background, similar. Both men had come into their estates at a young age with a younger sibling to look after. Knightley was nearly ten years older than Mr. Darcy, but in maturity they were not dissimilar.

The main difference was their upbringing and personality. Knightley said presently. Darcy agreed. Emma bears it well, but Mr. Woodhouse is a most fearful, anxious sort. His own health is poor. He also lost his wife untimely and has never felt sanguine since, though I think he was always nervous. Knightley did not know quite why he continued. Woodhouse would bear it. Knightley could say no more. He could not help seeing that in many respects Mr. Darcy would be an excellent match for Emma.

Darcy was of similar rank and fortune, and more importantly, a conscientious and thoughtful man. He was also the sort of tall, handsome fellow that women admired, and just the right age for Emma. Darcy was also intelligent, which Emma needed. Being so bright and hetrong herself, she would march right over a stupid man. Knightley did not like it, exactly, but it was not for him to dislike. Darcy, perceptive in some ways but not in others, which is a maxim true of nearly everyone, yet more so of gentlemen, was not aware of the subtext.

Darcy, to do him justice, was wondering why Elizabeth remained the undisputed queen of his heart, while Emma did not so much as cause him to blink. Emma had the better figure, by regular standards, and was by far better in situation. She would be a perfectly acceptable choice. She also was clever, free from vanity, and far more natural than Miss Caroline Bingley could dream of being. And yet, he felt nothing. Why should one face and voice and mind so captivate him when no others did? Darcy was not a romantic; he had never planned to marry purely for love.

He still thought a match with Elizabeth would be imprudent in the extreme… but he was also beginning to think of it with a certain amount of guilty reation. If Providence did not want him to fall under her spell, why had she turned up under his nose here in Highbury? Why were they scheduled to travel to Hunsford at the same time? He could withstand a few days or weeks; he had done so and left her in Hertfordshire. But this was worse, and he had not even her family to remind him of the drawbacks.

If he was not engaged to her by the end of his visit in the south, it would be a miracle of self-control…. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed. Congratulations on the upcoming release, Corrie. The cover is lovely too. Oh gosh, Corrie!! And what a fun idea of blending the two stories!! I also love that cover! My TBR pile is getting big!!

Thanks DeeDee!! It was a really fun blending to write! And I totally hear you about the TBR pile!! So much to read! Sorry about commenting twice. Neither comment showed up, so I deleted the , went back to and re-opened it, and both posts were here.

Congratulations on your new book! Darcy with Emma! He would need the patience of a saint. I love Knightley as well. Thanks for sharing your excerpt. Thank you for sharing this giveaway and excerpt with us here today! Thanks Chelsea! Best of luck! Poor Darcy continues to be so confused with himself! Why is he so much at war with himself? I thought it was humorous that Emma suited him on paper but not on emotions.

Thank you for the giveaway. Thanks Eva! Delightful excerpt. Thank you for this generous giveaway. Good luck to all in the drawing. Blessings, stay safe, and healthy. Thanks Jeanne! Yes, I love being able to give Darcy a good friend! Friendship, or the lack of it, is a major theme in this story. This sounds like an interesting read.

I do enjoy read scenarios where Darcy and Elizabeth meet other Jane Austen characters. I am looking forward to reading this book. What a delicious twist of Emma and Pride and Prejudice. Darcy and Knightly together…. Looking forward to reading about two of my favorite Austen men the third is Frederick Wentworth of course! I can not see Mr. Darcy with Emma to me their personalities are not really suitable.

Thank you for the chance. Thanks Vanessa! Thanks Regina! Congratulations on this publication and a book 2-woohoo!! It always pinches my heart to read of Darcy being matched with anyone other than Dearest Elizabeth. But we all know what we want at the end! Thanks for entering! Sharing is Caring!
