Happy Friday, friends! I am so excited to start my weekend with a wonderful visit from author, Nicole Clarkston! As you might have seen (and heard), Nicole has just released her a much anticipated Pride and Prejudice variation titled -Nefarious. This story has a very interesting premise as Mr. Darcy has previously married and now wants to avoid anyone who reminds him of his first wife… Nicole is here today to share a scene from Nefarious that she rewrote from Elizabeth Bennet’s point-of-view! We hope you enjoy!

This vignette is a snapshot of the Netherfield Ball from Elizabeth’s perspective. The book contains this very same scene in Chapter Ten, but in the book, we only see Darcy’s point of view. I thought it would be fun to hear Elizabeth’s thoughts. Enjoy!

My brother and I enjoyed a ‘sibling hike’ in glorious 80 degree weather. 🥵😉

We did an impressive 7 miles worth of hiking! (impressive for us!)😉 Continue reading »
