Time-travel with me to the sights and sounds of the Pemberley Ball during the Regency period. Along with our beloved Mr. Darcy, you may encounter classic and not-so-classic Pride and Prejudice characters. However, you will be in for a smashing time!

Books featured:

Mr. Darcy, Vampyre by Amanda Grange
(vampire twist)

Seducing Mr. Darcy by Gwyn Cready

Love, Lies and Lizzie by Rosie Rushton
(YA Pride and Prejudice inspired)

To prepare for the festivities, you may want to read Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen or watch any of the movie adaptations as a quick refresher.
