Quills & Quartos Publishing

 

A traditional, independent digital, print and audiobook publisher of romantic historical fiction and stories inspired by jane austen.

 

 

By the author of The Perfect Gentleman and Lost & Found

He raged inwardly at fate’s gift

of the one female he could

never, ever have...

IT  IS  A  TRUTH  UNIVERSALLY acknowledged that a single vampyre must be in want of a wife. Someone biddable, her memories easily expunged to allow for strange, inexplicable deeds and baffling circumstances. A tractable creature, of average intelligence, willing to attend to the business of producing heirs and keep out of all else. A girl easily moulded, incurious, indifferent, and demanding nothing beyond access to his fortune.


 

FITZWILLIAM  DARCY   KNOWS    EXACTLY  who he needs. He can fix on the hour, the spot, the look, and the words which laid the foundation for an obsession he rejected. But ten years later, at an assembly in an obscure village in Hertfordshire, he finds himself in the middle once more.


His needs are unalterable. But can he resist the one woman he truly wants?

When Fitzwilliam Darcy meets Elizabeth Bennet in the fateful autumn of 1811, their mutual infatuation is immediate and undeniable. Within months, they are married and spend a blissful winter at Pemberley, falling more deeply in love with each other than either might have imagined possible. But spring in London proves more challenging to them. Accident and artifice join to devastating effect for the young couple, destroying their felicity and creating an outcome neither might have imagined. 

Two years later, happenstance reunites them. Sorrow and anger have built walls between them but the love they once shared still remains. Will it be enough to conquer the sins of the past? Is the love they still hold within them strong enough to prevail over the anger and mistrust that tore them apart?

Marianne Mowbrey is a responsible country rector’s daughter who longs for the novelty and excitement she reads about in novels. When her crusty Aunt Harriet agrees to give her a Season in London, Marianne vows to dazzle the world, win a husband, and never go home again. But the Londoners who determine social success are inclined to pass over plain Marianne in favor of her beautiful, reckless younger sister.

In a world of ambition, fashion, flattery, and deceit, how can Marianne stay true to her real self—especially when she is not even sure what that real self is?

Flirtation & Folly is a regency romance in the style of Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer. This series will explore the emergence of the Mowbrey sisters as they leave their country upbringing behind and enter the exciting world of London society.

But we need authors to write those stories. Are you a writer who is interested in publishing your work? We would love to hear from you.
