First Impressions:
A Tale of Less Pride & Prejudice

by Alexa Adams

Published: March 2010

Darcy smiled at her indignation; it brought warmth to his soul. Suddenly they became conscious of their clasped hands and dropped them promptly.
-chapter 13, page 86

Description from
In Pride and Prejudice Fitzwilliam Darcy begins his relationship with Elizabeth Bennet with the words: "She is tolerable, but not handsome enough to tempt me; I am in no humour at present togive consequence to young ladies who are slighted by other men."

What would have happened if Mr. Darcy had never spoken so disdainfully? First Impressions explores how the events of Jane Austen's beloved novel would have transpired if Darcy and Elizabeth had danced together at the Meryton Assembly. Jane and Bingley's relationship blossoms unimpeded, Mary makes a most fortunate match, and Lydia never sets a foot in Brighton. Austen's witty style is authentically invoked in this playful romp from Longbourn to Pemberley.

  3. I remember the dress you created from my book The Last Stitch. Very Regency and Vivienne Westwood combined! You're so clever!

  4. Ooh, I think that dress would actually sell!

  5. I just found this! Had no notion what I missed in the middle of my move craziness! I'm forwarding the post to the cover designer immediately.
