In marriage-minded Regency England, one simple word can ruin your life. Compromise! can bring down a virtuous maiden, like Miss Elizabeth Bennet, and her entire family along with her. When Elizabeth finds Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy outside Netherfield, alone and at his most vulnerable, she must make a quick decision to bend the rules of propriety to help him or turn her back on someone in need. Her tender heart reaches out to him and his wounded one grabs hold of her well-intentioned support. Discovery changes the course of their lives as Elizabeth is forced to accept a reluctant proposal of marriage from this man whom she has just barely begun to respect. Can Jane Austen’s most beloved couple reach a compromise that might turn a tenuous friendship into a loving marriage? Will it survive as desperate, unscrupulous, and foolish people alike set compromising machinations into motion for their own greedy ends? Follow Elizabeth and Darcy in this novel-length Regency romance as J. Dawn King takes them through a sweet variation of Pride and Prejudice where compromises abound and outcomes will surprise you. By the author of Amazon bestsellers A Father’s Sins and One Love, Two Hearts, Three Stories. BONUS PREVIEW INCLUDED: The Trouble With Horses by Elizabeth Ann West **From the Author For me, there is something about Elizabeth Bennet that intrigues me. In Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, she learns she is not as smart and perceptive as she had always assumed she was. I took this as my setting for her as I wrote Compromised! I love how Elizabeth's imperfections make her enjoyable to read and to write. Darcy? How can I not appreciate the power true love has over him. He becomes willing to change fundamentals of his character to win the woman he feels is worthy to become Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy, Mistress of Pemberley. I hope you enjoy reading this story as much as I enjoyed writing it. About the Author Joy Dawn King fell in love with Jane Austen's writings in 2012 and discovered the world of fan fiction shortly after. Intrigued with the many possibilities, she began developing her own story for Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet. At the time she wrote her first novel, "A Father's Sins", she was living high in the Andes Mountains of South America. Joy loved to take an occasional break from the Latin culture and bury herself in reading English literature about her favorite English characters. Joy, and her husband of 35 years, lived next door to their only child, Jennifer, her husband, and twin grandchildren and is a native Oregonian. In late 2014 the Kings relocated to Oregon where other stories popped into her head. She is typing as fast as she can to keep up. The author is currently writing about Mr. Bingley's and Jane Bennet's struggles with happily ever after and will follow with the tale of what happens when Colonel Fitzwilliam immediately falls in love with Constance Wickham, who hates him bitterly.
