213 Romance Fiction/ Jane Austen Adaptations: Regina Jeffers

ITEM: Set of five Jane Austen adaptations: Darcy’s Passions, Darcy Temptation, Vampire Darcy’s Desire, Captain Wentworth’s Persuasion, and The Phantom of Pemberley, signed by the author.

DETAILS: Excerpt from Darcy’s Passions: Darcy’s Passions: Fitzwilliam Darcy’s Story (The first proposal from his point of view) The Collinses’ arrival came at last, but to Darcy’s dismay, Mr. Collins offered Lady Catherine his sincerest apologies for his cousin had taken ill. How could Elizabeth be ill?  he thought as he purposely took a seat near the fire.  She seemed in health this morning when he observed her in the park. For the next half hour, Darcy went through the motions Society demanded, but he could not separate his mind from the thoughts of Elizabeth Bennet. If she were truly ill, he must do what he could to comfort her. Agitation wracked his  being; now, he fully understood how Bingley felt when Jane Bennet became ill at Netherfield. Yet, possibly Miss Bennt’s illness was a sham; she expected his offer this morning only to find Edward in the park in his stead.  Of course, did they  not congenially meet in the park each morning? Her distress of not seeing him today  created her infirmity, or it could be a means of their being alone. Yes, it must be so. (Taken from Regina Jeffer’s website.)

CV: A Time Warner Star Teacher and Crystal Apple Finalist, as well a Martha Holden Jennings Scholar, Jeffers is relatively new to the publishing realm. Her career began when a former student challenged her to do what she so “righteously” told her class should be accomplished in writing. On a whim, she self-published her first book Darcy’s Passions.
