The amount of Pride and Prejudice inspired Austenesque novels published in 2013 is so staggering, it would have been too overwhelming to put them all together in one list.  Thanks to the helpful advice of Jakki Leatherberry, I’ve broken them up into 3 lists!

  • Author’s Last Name (A-L)
  • Author’s Last Name (M-Z)
  • Novels That Were Only Published as eBooks

So today’s list is the first of 3!  If you are wondering why a Pride and Prejudice inspired novel that was published in 2013 isn’t on this list, chances are it is on one of the other two.  If there is a novel you know belongs on this list (has to be published in paperback) and you don’t see it, let me know!  With so many novels coming out weekly, it is hard to remember or find them all!


If you want to see more lists, go HERE.  I’ve been busy the last two months updating and modifying  all previous lists!  (I must work better to stay on top of them!)


Of the novels I haven’t read, which do you recommend? 

There are 49 novels in this list, how many have you read?

    Thank you so much for this list, Meredith, and for the hard work that went into assembling it. I’m constantly reading Austenesque novels – I’m looking at three shelves of them right now – but only a few of mine are on your list. So, I’m looking forward to List 2 and List 3 – to cover all the bases! I thought I was familiar with Austen authors, but lots of new names here as well.

    Suggestions? Susannah Fullerton’s work, absolutely. I also recommend Jeffers, Lathan and Altman. I’ve not read any Jack Caldwell – yet: I have a copy of “The Companion of his Future Life” is my get to pile.

    Thanks again.


      I’m so glad you find the lists helpful, Lilyane! I cannot even guess how many hours it took me this year! LOL! So many books!

      I love your suggestions! Thank you! I have The Companion of His Future Life in my TBR pile for next month. And I hope to one day get to the other books you mentioned. 🙂


    I really liked the “A Fair Prospect” series by Cassandra Grafton.


    Thanks for organizing such a comprehensive list for us. I haven’t read anything that’s missing from your list. You, however, have made me realize that unless I only read books by authors named M-Z, I have some catching up to do.

    Also, “Spank Me, Mr. Darcy”? Um, wow. To each his own, I suppose. You gonna review that one for us soon, Meredith? LOL


      Lolzzzz, Heather! I did receive a review request from the publisher….but I opted to forgo that one. 😉 So sorry to disappoint you. LOL!

      I think the total of Pride and Prejudice inspired novels totals around 150 for 2013! Quite a big year! And this doesn’t include all the nonfiction, non Pride and Prejudice novels!


    Great list Meredith! I have read 4 of the books on your list. I highly recommend ‘The Mysterious Death of Mr. Darcy’ by Regina Jeffers and ‘The Passions of Dr. Darcy’ by Sharon Lathan. I just finished reading all three of Nancy Kelley’s ‘Brides of Pemberley’. You will definitely enjoy ‘Against His Will’ as Montgomery is delightful. The only issue I had was it wasn’t long enough! I’d love to see more written on these wonderful comrades of Colonel Fitzwilliam!


      Thank you, Carole! I love your suggestions! I need to get caught up with Regina Jeffers mysteries! I read The Phantom of Pemberley awhile ago and thought it was wonderful! And I’m so happy to hear about your praise for Against His Will – I plan on reading that in the near future! I love Sebastian!


    I love your lists Meredith!


    So many that I hadn’t even heard of. Love your lists!


    I agree with Ceri. I always look forward to these lists.


    Your list is awesome!. Thanks, Meredith because it must take a lot of time 🙂


    Thank you, Meredith, for your lists! I must keep this comment short as I’m having problems with my computer again. Thanks for all your effort and time!!

    Thank you so much! Just what I needed and with the links to your reviews I can purchase with confidence!


    As an unapologetic list-maker, I admire you for doing this, but suspect you love to do it. But my goodness, so many books! About 150 this year! No wonder the number of brand-new and unread novels on my Kindle seems to have increased exponentially each time I finish a book. And there are some great new ones coming out soon, too! Thank you so much for creating these lists for us readers to explore.
