The Deeply Devious and Dastard....

Emma Arnold

Bitchy Caroline Bingley manages to hook delicious Darcy but things don't go quite according to plan...

Scheming Caroline Bingley thought that happiness would be her's after she manages to get Darcy to marry her but nothing could be farther from the truth. His heart lies elsewhere and there's nothing she can do about it...or is there?



Emma Arnold

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good body must be in want of a bit of crumpet.

When Elizabeth Bennet is invited to tea at Rosings she expects to be mildly bored by the ramblings of the dictatorial Lady Catherine de Bourgh but she didn't reckon on again meeting the arrogant Mr Darcy and his dashing cousin, Colonel Fitzwilliam.

The Colonel, who is just back from fighting the Napoleonic Wars, is a cad and he's looking for fun. When he sets his sights on Elizabeth she is determined to resist but the Colonel is used to getting his own way and the more difficult the prey the more satisfying the hunt.

This is Regency England where the scales of power fall very much in favour of the Colonel but with the good name of her family at stake and her very soul in peril Elizabeth must succeed at outwit this pusillanimous predator. But will she? Or will Darcy save her from a fate worse than death?

Thank you to Jane Austen for creating such wonderful characters, plot, dialogue and prose for me to have fun with.

An absolutely fantastic book. I've read up to chapter 9 and am still reading. Narrated in a clear, simple, unintrusive voice. A gripping tale that deserves a wide audience. Very best of luck with it and I am only so sorry that you had to endure such hardships, sadness and abuse in order to wri... view book

I read this with a smile. You write beautifully, your prose is laced with a sly humour which I adore and there's an originality to your voice which is hard to define. Your innocent description of Scotland through an outsider's eyes really made me chuckle. And your other cast of characters quickly co... view book

This genre is well out of my comfort zone but I'm so glad I read it. In the prologue the bickering angels (who seem to have a touch of the surfer dude about them) appear to be preparing for the second coming. As the bickering got more heated I was half expecting "their father" so say "chillax"!! ... view book

Terry, you have real talent. This book is a gem and you have a delicious sense of humour. It’s hard to get first person POV right but you do it with aplomb in this Chandleresque gumshoe noir which also has a hit of Ealing comedy about it. Loved your descriptions of Tommy, Eddie and Jimmy (which also... view book
