Well, at first I didn’t know what to do for today’s post. However, I’ve had in mind to do a fourth book for the Darcy Versus Series, and this is what I came up with. I have a premise with a tentative plot and, unless I think of one more, this will be the last of the Darcy Versus Series. There are two fun ones and two with angst. Guess which ones. 🙂
Worried about ‘Darcy Vs Elizabeth?’ It’s in the works as well.
This winter has been very busy from a number of standpoints, and because of minor health issues, I haven’t written as much as I should have. But the goals for this year are to finish ‘Darcy Vs Elizabeth,’ ‘Darcy Vs Wickham,’ and ‘The Four Lords’ Reunion.’ There may also be a fourth P&P as well. Writing four books a year is a goal I wish to obtain.
Would you like a peek at ‘Darcy Vs Wickham?’ Here you go. 🙂
Elizabeth rushed up to Richard as he came in the front entrance to Pemberley.
“Did you find William?” Tears slid down her cheeks as he nodded his head with his eyes closed.
“Come with me.” Taking a gentle hold of her shoulders, Richard guided her into the drawing room and had her sit on the large settee before he sat beside her with his head hanging low.
“Richard, tell me the truth. Where did you find him?”
“I’m sorry, Elizabeth.”
Richard held her as she collapsed and gave vent to the tears that had been building up in her since Darcy’s disappearance. When his horse had returned to the stables without him, they had feared the worst.
Eventually Elizabeth’s grief was spent for the moment, and Richard released her.
“Are you well?”
“I will never be well again.” Shaking her head then stiffening with resolve, she faced him and demanded to know what happened.
“We found his body. Evidently, he took the trail over the mountain but may have been thrown by his horse. We discovered him at the bottom of the gorge where he had tumbled down. I thought at first, it was someone else as he was unrecognizable because of landing face first on the rocks, but Jenkins verified it was Darcy’s clothes, and his father’s watch was there as well. I am so sorry, Elizabeth. You’ve lost a husband, and I’ve lost my best friend.”
With a cry of anguish, Elizabeth jumped up to go to her bedchamber but promptly swooned. Richard scooped her up before she hit the floor then called for Reynolds to have her lady’s maid attend her as he carried her to the suite she and Darcy had shared. He didn’t look forward to preparing for his cousin’s funeral.
Is Darcy dead? Of course not! I will probably never kill him off when I want him and Elizabeth to get their HEA. But where is he? What happened to him? And will Elizabeth find him in time?
You’ll have to wait and see. And, yes, I will have a giveaway once this book is done so you have something to look forward to. Have a lovely week. 🙂
