Pemberley Ball - Departure


Alas, the evening festivities are coming to a close.

Thank you guests and party crashers for your attendance.

I do believe the Pemberley Ball has been a success.

It is clear who Mr Darcy has chosen for his future bride to be. Who can match her beauty, intelligence and mad fighting skills???

Giveaway winners will be announced after their end dates as super late comers to the party are eligible to win.

Mr. Darcy Presents His Bride:
A Sequel to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice
by Helen Halstead
Published: 2007

When Elizabeth Bennett marries the brooding, passionate Mr. Darcy, she is thrown into the exciting world of London society. She makes a powerful friend in the Marchioness of Englebury but the jealousy among her ladyship's circle threatens to destroy Elizabeth's happiness. Elizabeth is drawn into a powerful clique for whom intrigue is the stuff of life and rivalry the motive, and her success, it seems, can only come at the expense of good relations with her husband. This novel also continues the stories of other favorite Pride and Prejudice characters including Georgiana Darcy and Kitty Bennett, each of whom have amusing adventures of their own. Told in the language of the era and bringing Regency society vividly to life, Mr. Darcy Presents His Bride recalls Austen's theme of the necessity of individual growth in the maintainance of lasting bonds.

  1. What a lovely and thrilling party! I received some practice in vanquishing the unmentionables and was able to hob knob with Mr Darcy and flirt unabated since I'm an old married woman! Oh, those biceps...drool, drool..."Lord Archibald? Oh, coming dear!" Only lost one ninja, Devoted Husband safe, took out zombies and saved a person or two! Great ball! So sad it's come to a close :(

  5. It was a most enjoyable party; I agree it is a shame that it should have to end. I wonder that I might attend a ball in the future that has such jois de vivre as this with zombie fighting and all. Alas, my carriage is here good night to all.
