Torn between his heart
and his mind…
Mr. Darcy must make a choice.
Fitzwilliam Darcy has always been able to keep his emotions under control. That is, until he falls under the spell of Elizabeth Bennet and surprises himself by blurting out a proposal to her like a moonstruck youth. Stung to the quick by her rejection, his pride in tatters, and left with no possibility that she will ever return his regard, Darcy determines to put all thoughts of her behind him. But even Town with its boundless opportunities for amusement can't keep the image of Elizabeth Bennet from pursuing him everywhere he goes.
By the time Darcy leaves Town to travel up to Pemberley, he has learned one thing. There is only one way to overcome Miss Bennet’s bewitching hold over him and Darcy is desperate enough to try it. The solution is to get married. And this time, he is not going to choose a wife by allowing his emotions to lead him by the nose.
His choice will be entirely rational…
In this Austen Variation, Monica Fairview traces Mr. Darcy’s journey as he struggles to come to terms with the upheaval Elizabeth Bennet has caused in his life…and his heart.
BOOK 2 OF THE DARCY NOVELS, MR. DARCY'S CHALLENGE, IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR PREORDER ON KINDLE.

"I loved seeing such an emotionally-charged, reflective, and romantic Darcy..."
"Ms. Fairview is an excellent writer and pulls the reader into the story with her characters. Mr. Darcy’s Pledge is charming and entertaining."
"Mr. Darcy’s Pledge has to be one of my favorite pieces of Austenesque fiction that I’ve read. I read it just one day; I couldn’t put it down."
