Conceit & Concealment is ready for pre-order
At long last, I’m thrilled to announce my newest book, Conceit & Concealment, is available for pre-order as an ebook. It’s a Pride & Prejudice variation with a difference – instead of direct changes to the action, the variation is an alternate history where Napoleon has conquered England. It’s still very much a Darcy & Elizabeth story; the history changes are in the background, but our beloved characters are in a new situation with a totally new conflict.
Here’s the blurb:
Six years after Napoleon conquered England…
Fitzwilliam Darcy is a traitor. He even admits to collaborating with Napoleon’s troops. And Elizabeth Bennet despises all traitors.
But Elizabeth can’t make sense of Darcy. He doesn’t act like a traitor. He risks his own safety to save young women from the French. And how can she despise a man who loves puppies? Something about him doesn’t add up – and she finds him far too attractive.
Then Darcy’s carefully constructed world crumbles, and he must entrust his closest-held secret to Elizabeth. To protect that secret, Elizabeth must disappear entirely, leaving her family and Darcy behind, to plunge herself into the dizzying world of fashionable London and the dangers of the Loyalist Resistance. Nothing will ever be the same again.
Darcy is determined to find Elizabeth. Now that she knows the truth about him, there’s nothing to keep them apart – nothing, that is, until the day Darcy is forced to choose between his country and the life of the woman he loves…

What a lovely surprise, to pop up on e-mail just as I was ready to close it up for the night and just as I was rereading the first 6 chapters. Thanks a lot. I must admit that as a pediatrician ready to retire I have discovered that JAFF is more fun than journal articles!
