Three best-selling Pride and Prejudice 'what-if' stories in a Limited Edition Collection!


§ Expecting His Proposal

In this diverting Pride and Prejudice short story, what if Darcy had not wounded Elizabeth's pride by insulting her at the Meryton assembly and had danced with her instead? What if Elizabeth had refused to hear a negative word formed against Darcy by his former friend, George Wickham? What if Elizabeth had been so agreeably engaged with thoughts of the master of Pemberley that by the time his visit to Kent was drawing nearer to its end, she was indeed expecting his proposal?


§ As Good as a Lord 

Elizabeth had intended to tell no one about Mr. Darcy's proposal. At length, she confided in her dearest sister, Jane. It was meant to be their secret, but secrets have a way of getting found out.

What happens when Mrs. Bennet learns that her headstrong daughter has refused the hand of a second respectable man in less than six months? 

Darcy is determined to put his disastrous proposal to Miss Elizabeth Bennet behind him by filling the empty space in his life that can only be occupied by a wife. A chance meeting with Elizabeth at Pemberley gives him pause. Elizabeth may be the only woman in his heart, but she is not the only woman in his life. 

Will Darcy adhere to his original plan to find another, or will he follow his heart?


§ Love Will Grow

Miss Elizabeth Bennet befriends Miss Anne de Bourgh, a wealthy heiress. Elizabeth has no fortune, no connections—nothing to recommend her except her wit and charm and her good nature. She agrees to aid Anne in her quest to secure a marriage proposal from her haughty, aristocratic cousin, Fitzwilliam Darcy of Pemberley and Derbyshire. How could Elizabeth know the gentleman has his heart set upon another?

Darcy barely acknowledges his cousin’s existence. He knows what his family expects of him, but he never suspected that Anne harbored those foolish hopes. He only has eyes for Elizabeth, the charming and witty young woman he mistakenly believes is expecting an offer of marriage. Truth be told, Elizabeth does not even like the proud man—at least, not in the beginning.

BEWITCHED, BODY AND SOUL is an engaging Pride and Prejudice "what-if" story about Darcy and Elizabeth and a different path to happily ever after. 

"Dixon has created a new variation of a classic favorite that is just as romantic and engaging as the original. In all, I foresee Dixon becoming more and more popular as people begin to discover her creative literary voice. I urge you to begin discovering her works on your own as they will be a delight to read." Austenprose.com 

What Readers Are Saying: 

"This novel had all the essential elements of the original Pride and Prejudice story, but at each turn it was creatively manipulated on a new path that Dixon creates." 

"Dixon does a marvelous job of letting the wordplay between Darcy and Elizabeth become unintentional verbal foreplay between the characters. It's a quick, romantic read that I'm sure to revisit again and again!" 


Determined to right a wrong against her family, Elizabeth ventures to town to reunite her sister with her lover. In so doing, will she end up losing her own heart? Bent on discovering the reason for Bingley's hasty departure from Netherfield, Elizabeth goes to town in Jane's stead. 

Her initial scheme having been thwarted and with nowhere else to go, she turns to one who is sure to put her in Bingley's path--Mr. Darcy. Darcy realizes it will take more than time and distance to erase the memory of the beguiling country miss. When she arrives unescorted on his doorstep, will he help her? Or will he soon discover he is in grave danger of falling as much in love with her as ever before? And what of his best friend's younger sister who has long had Darcy in her sights? Will Darcy pursue the young lady who meets Society's expectations of just what the next mistress of Pemberley ought to be or will he follow his heart?

In Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Mr. Bennet had this to say about Mr. Darcy: “We all know him to be a proud, unpleasant sort of man...” 

Miss Elizabeth Bennet, herself, spoke of Mr. Darcy's arrogance, his conceit, and his selfish disdain of the feelings of others—the last man in the world whom she could ever be prevailed on to marry. The gentleman's housekeeper, Mrs. Reynolds, described him as the best landlord and master who ever lived. Such varying accounts as these are exceedingly puzzling, indeed.

This amorous, provocative, and at times tumultuous tale, illustrates Mr. Darcy as a wealthy young man of sense and education, as well as considerable worldly experience—not at all uncommon for Regency-era gentlemen of his social standing. He is his own master. He enjoys his lifestyle and has no particular desire to marry at all. That is until he renews his acquaintance with Miss Elizabeth Bennet—her own circumstances greatly diminished pursuant to the sudden and tragic death of her father.

Follow Mr. Darcy's journey from a man who, indeed, is proud and haughty, to one who seeks to please a woman worthy of being pleased.

To Have His Cake (and Eat It Too): Mr. Darcy's Tale ~ A Regency historical fiction adaptation of Jane Austen's timeless classic Pride and Prejudice.

Three best-selling Pride and Prejudice 'what-if' stories in a one enticing collection!

To Have His Cake - Taunting. Tantalizing. Titillating.
In an amorous, provocative, and at times tumultuous tale, Mr. Darcy is a wealthy young man of sense and education with considerable knowledge of the world. He is his own master. He enjoys his lifestyle and has no particular desire to marry at all. That is until he renews his acquaintance with Miss Elizabeth Bennet—her circumstances greatly diminished pursuant to the sudden and tragic death of her father. Follow Darcy's journey from a man who indeed is proud and haughty to one who seeks to please a woman worthy of being pleased. 

To Refuse Such a Man - Compromised. Courted. Captivated.
Miss Elizabeth Bennet must decide whether to accept or refuse a proposal from the last man in the world whom she could be prevailed on to marry. At least two unhappy alternatives are also before her: certain scandal and her mother's disapprobation. Is there a path to happily ever after in the wake of an alliance born out of such circumstances?

Still a Young Man - Secrets. Seductions. Second Chances.
Widowed after six months of marriage, an older Elizabeth is determined to leave her past behind and enjoy life to its fullest, on her own terms. Charming, witty, and engaging, she is widely admired by all. However, everything is not as it seems. She harbors a secret. The beautiful widow captivates a younger Mr. Darcy. He struggles to break through her protective barriers, the most daunting being her tightly held conviction that she will never marry again. Elizabeth, refusing to suffer anyone's pity, hides the unpleasant truth of her forced marriage from everyone. Having observed the mourning period for a deceased husband she did not love, she looks forward to enjoying a Season in town. Her liveliness, her beauty, and her charm attract the notice of unscrupulous people posing as friends. There's only one man who’s able to help her navigate the treacherous waters of the ton.

I have debts to pay and secrets to keep. When someone threatens my life, I crash into him: Jackson Ludlow

The recluse billionaire of New York

Once, he had everything a man could want. Then, he lost the only thing that he ever loved.


So, he spent four years holed up in his mansion doing the only thing he knew how to do: make money. 


We are all wrong for each other. He’s cold, uninterested and demanding. 

I’m impatient and inexperienced. 


The only thing we have in common is that we both have secrets. 

And the closer we get, the more they threaten to destroy us.
