Lady Aurelia Langley
Hello! I am Lady Aurelia, the daughter of Lord Langley.
We are visiting my dear aunt Catherine and at the same time, my father plans to seek a suitable husband for me. I have heard that there will be many beautiful ladies in breathtaking gowns, and dashing, debonair young men in handsome suits attending this major event.
I look forward to meeting you and sincerely hope that we can be good friends.
Oh dear, we are into the wee hours of the Pemberley Ball.
After speaking with Elizabeth Bennet, Lady Aurelia senses that Mr Darcy is off limits. Perhaps she should pursue Mr Bingley over there before the last dance...
Bit o'sip sip gossip...

'Pride and Prejudice' meets 'A Christmas Carol'
by Barbara Tiller Cole
Just released: October 2011
'Pride and Prejudice' meets 'A Christmas Carol' A Jane Austen/Charles Dickens crossover story, 'Fitzwilliam Ebenezer Darcy' takes the best of both classics and spins them into a delightful Holiday treat!
F.E. Darcy has fallen into pitiful self-loathing and sorrowful angst-ridden despair; all of this due to his belief that he has lost forever the chance to marry the only woman he has ever loved—Elizabeth Bennet. Seeing her son in such a state, the Ghost of Anne Darcy reaches out to him; informing him that three ghosts would visit him and give him hope. Will these Spirits provide him with the courage to try again to win the esteem of his one true soul mate?
Barbara Tiller Cole, an Atlanta native and the writer of the popular book 'White Lies and Other Half Truths', presents this family friendly classic—a delightful combination of the best of her two favorite authors, Jane Austen and Charles Dickens.
Barbara credits her parents with fostering a love for both of these authors. Each Christmas, Barbara’s father would sit and read Dicken’s classic 'A Christmas Carol' to the family. Her mother consistently challenged her to improve her mind by extensive reading, Jane Austen style. This book is dedicated to the memory of Cliff and Jeanne and the season they loved the best.
