This thrilling conclusion to the Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman trilogy recounts the climactic events of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice from its enigmatic hero’s point of view. One of the most beloved romantic heroes in all of literature, Fitzwilliam Darcy remains an enigma even to Jane Austen’s most devoted fans. But with this concluding volume in the Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman trilogy, novelist and Austen aficionada Pamela Aidan at last gives readers the man in full. These Three Remain follows a humbled Darcy on the journey of self-discovery after Elizabeth Bennet’s rejection of his marriage proposal, in which he endeavors to grow into the kind of gentleman he’s always dreamed of being. Happily, a chance meeting with Elizabeth during a tour of his estate in Derbyshire offers Darcy a new opportunity to press his suit, but his newfound strengths are put to the test by an old nemesis, George Wickham. Vividly capturing the colorful historical and political milieu of the Regency era, Aidan writes in a style evocative of her literary progenitor, but with a wit and humor very much her own. While staying faithful to the people and events in Austen’s original, she adds her own fascinating cast of characters, weaving a rich tapestry out of Darcy’s past and present that will beguile his admirers anew.

Actress Clarissa Lisle has always been famous for her ravishing beauty—and her unscrupulous manipulations. Now on the death-shrouded island of Courcy, her schemes win her a starring role in a nightmare in which she can trust no one—not her deceived husband; her dangerously insecure stepson; her ominously genial host; her dependent, desperate cousin; or her cruelly amusing ex-lover.

El recuerdo de Elizabeth Bennet parece perseguirle a todas partes. Distraído y distante, Georgiana trata de averiguar qué le pasa. Él le cuenta sus encuentros con Elizabeth, pero también deja muy claro que, aparte de la opinión que la joven pueda tener de él, la posición social de la dama, claramente inferior a la de su familia, es un obstáculo insalvable para cualquier posible relación entre ambos.

Para ello, acepta la invitación de un viejo amigo suyo, lord Sayre, para pasar una semana en el castillo de Norwycke, en donde se reunirán algunos de sus antiguos compañeros de estudios y varias damas, entre las que se encuentra lady Sylvanie, hermanastra del anfitrión, una hermosa y misteriosa mujer, que consigue desde el principio captar su interés.

Profonda estimatrice di Jane Austen, P.D. James sceglie di confrontarsi con la sua opera più nota, Orgoglio e pregiudizio, rivisitandola con originalità e rispetto e conferendole il suo tocco inconfondibile con una sorprendente trama gialla. Inghilterra, 1803. Sono passati sei anni da quando Elizabeth e Darcy hanno iniziato la loro vita insieme nella splendida tenuta di Pemberley. Elizabeth è felice del suo ruolo di padrona di casa ed è madre di due bellissimi bambini. La sorella maggiore Jane, cui lei è legatissima, vive nelle vicinanze insieme al marito Charles, vecchio amico di Darcy, e il suo adorato padre, Mr Bennet, va spesso a farle visita. Ma in una fredda e piovosa serata d'ottobre, mentre fervono gli ultimi preparativi per il grande ballo d'autunno che si terrà il giorno successivo, l'universo tranquillo e ordinato di Pemberley viene scosso all'improvviso dalla comparsa di Lydia, la sorella minore di Elizabeth e Jane. In preda a una crisi isterica la giovane donna urla che suo marito, l'ambiguo e disonesto Wickham, non gradito a Pemberley per la sua condotta immorale, è appena stato ucciso proprio lì, nel bosco della tenuta. Di colpo, l'ombra pesante e cupa del delitto offusca l'eleganza e l'armonia di Pemberley, e i protagonisti si ritrovano loro malgrado coinvolti in una vicenda dai contorni drammatici. Grande conoscitrice delle ambiguità dell'animo umano, P.D. James con Morte a Pemberley firma un romanzo giallo di grande atmosfera, regalando una seconda vita agli indimenticabili personaggi di uno dei classici più amati della letteratura.

When Charlotte Lucas married Mr. Collins in Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, she believed herself to be fortunate indeed. Her nuptials gained her a comfortable home and financial security. If she acquired these things at the expense of true love, it did not matter one whit. To Charlotte, love in marriage was nothing more than a pleasant coincidence. As the years of her marriage dragged by, Charlotte began to question her idea of love as she suffered continual embarrassment at her husband's simpering and fawning manners. When Mr. Collins dies, finally relieving everyone of his tedious conversation, she must work feverishly to secure her income and home. She gives no further thought to the possibility of love until her flighty sister Maria begs her to act as her chaperone in place of their ailing parents. Hoping to prevent Maria from also entering an unhappy union, Charlotte agrees, and they are quickly thrust into a world of country dances, dinner parties, and marriageable gentlemen. While attending the Westerham winter ball, Maria dances with her bumbling friend Mr. Card, while Charlotte has a flirtatious conversation with Mr. Edgington, a relative of her proprietress Lady Catherine de Bourgh. Charlotte and Maria also become acquainted with Mr. Westfield, a polished American gentleman, and his chaperone, the somewhat disheveled Mr. Basford. Charlotte experiences both hope and dread when she observes the tender glances that pass between Maria and Mr. Westfield. But when an unprincipled gentleman compromises Charlotte's reputation, her romantic thoughts disappear at the prospect of losing her independence. As she struggles to extricate herself from her slander, her situation reveals both the nature of each gentleman and of true love.

11 July 1784 Why should I be beneath Fitzwilliam? I am just as handsome as he is; I am just as intelligent, even though he works harder at his books; and I am just as amusing; in fact I dare say I am a great deal more amusing, for Fitzwilliam is so proud he will not take the trouble to entertain other people. Yet although he is no better than me, when he grows up he will inherit Pemberley, and I will inherit nothing... Jane Austen's ultimate bad boy finally gets his say. Face with an uncertain future—while his friend Fitzwilliam Darcy is set for life—dastardly George Wickham plots and cavorts in this rollicking prequel to Pride and Prejudice. Bestselling author Amanda Grange daringly explores the inner turmoil and secret motivations of the character every Austen fan loves to hate... Praise for Mr. Darcy's Diary: "Grange tells Darcy's story in her own style, with charm and a gentle wit. While her characters are true to Austen's creations, a couple of surprises lurk, only adding to the reader's pleasure."—Susan Higginbotham, author of The Traitor's Wife
