Omnibus edition - contains the first three books in the A Convenient Marriage series, a variation on Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice.
Longbourn's Lark -
Mary Bennet is used to being the overlooked Bennet sister, but when Colonel Fitzwilliam accidentally enters her life, everything changes.
As cousin to Mr Darcy, Colonel Fitzwilliam knows what it's like to feel invisible. His experiences at war have left him with one goal in mind: to marry, set up home and live in peace. When he witnesses the interaction between his cousin and Mary's sister, Elizabeth, he is determined his own happiness will not be the only end in mind.
However, with Mrs Bennet focused only on securing Longbourn by matching one of her daughters with the odious Mr Collins, will there be any chance of marrying for love, for anybody?
Three Weeks in Kent -
If her sister can marry well, and she can avoid Mr Collins, that is all the happiness Elizabeth Bennet can ask for. The first seems certain, with Mary and Colonel Fitzwilliam's wedding on the horizon. Alas, her own future is not yet close to settled, and she must endure three weeks in the company of Lady Catherine de Bourgh, who takes an immediate dislike to the elder of the two Bennet sisters.
Fitzwilliam Darcy is happy to accompany his cousin's party to Rosings, although he tires of his aunt's scheming within hours. He determines on a solution that might offer both he and Elizabeth an escape from the machinations of their families, but can he convince her of its wisdom?
With one couple matched and a wedding on the horizon, can a second romance manage to blossom under the interfering nose of Lady Catherine de Bourgh?
Suitably Wed -
Mr Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet have decided to marry for the most pragmatic of reasons: so that they might each avoid being forced into less amiable matches. In Elizabeth's case, the marriage is welcomed with open arms by her family, who happily forsake Mr Collins of Hunsford for Mr Darcy of Pemberley, yet in selecting Elizabeth for his bride, Darcy has succeeded in utterly alienating Lady Catherine de Bourgh. His cousins rally to his defence, but the marriage is beset by challenge, and once it becomes apparent that at least one party feels rather more strongly than they admitted, the practicality of the match is called into question. Can this couple acknowledge their true affection for each other once they are married, in a way they could not beforehand?
Lizzy's happy future with Mr Darcy is blighted only by the realisation that her sister, Jane, is miserable. Mr Bingley has suddenly departed Hertfordshire for London, and the match that seemed the most natural is all but abandoned. Elizabeth places the blame for her sister's heartbreak on Mr Bingley's shoulders, but is there another person behind the separation?
