Conviction: A Sequel to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice

This satirical, original sequel to Pride and Prejudice reveals the romantic destiny of Georgiana Darcy, but the story does not merely rest on the laurels of Austen. The reader will discover an entirely new cast of characters,  including a wistful vicar who could, according to one critic, "give Mr. Darcy a serious run for his money in the romantic lead department."  Meet also an ambitious soldier, a flirtatious abolitionist, and an ordinary curate.  The fates of these characters intertwine as they struggles to confront issues of loyalty, courage, faith, and love.  Available in paperback and ebook editions at Amazon and most online retailers of books. Or buy directly from the publisher.

Austenesque Reviews calls Conviction "a beautifully original and well-rounded sequel...I highly recommend it!" Sara Mills of the Christian Fiction Review Newsletter declares, "This is a must read for any Jane Austen fan." POD-DY Mouth wrote that the "book is wonderful and--Pride and Prejudice aside--can stand alone as an excellent novel in and of itself. The characters are rich (and believable for the Regency period); the plot is delightful, and you'll find Georgiana Darcy to be a moving heroine. Even if you haven't read P&P, you can still enjoy (and love) Conviction."

The novel is available in paperback and ebook editions from Amazon and other online retailers of books. Or purchase it directly from the publisher.

Long and Short Romance Reviews describes the novel as "deep and thought-provoking" and notes that "the beauty and savagery of the setting and time period are artfully intertwined into the plot." 

The Strange Marriage of Anne de Bourgh

Mr. Darcy races to rescue his cousin Anne from a fate worse than death: marriage. "As always," writes Austenesque Reviews, "Ms. Burris's representation of Austen's characters is flawless and her new additions are well-drawn and intriguing. I greatly enjoyed the twist at the end of this story. It caught me completely off-guard."

In addition to the title novella, this collection also includes two popular Pride and Prejudice inspired short stories.  "A Battle of Wits" and "Mr. Darcy's Homecoming" give the reader a tasteful and humorous glimpse into the married life of Mr. and Mrs. Darcy. The collection is available from Amazon in paperback and Kindle editions.
