What is it about Jane Austen’s character Mr. Darcy from the novel Pride and Prejudice that has captivated audiences for last 198 years? This character has been re-imagined countless times, from the BBC adaptations to the popular novel and film Bridget Jones’s Diary (just for the record, Colin Firth will always be Mr. Darcy to me), and fans are still yearning for more.

Recently I’ve noticed a wave of Mr. Darcy books which produce a new take on this popular character. Check out some of the more recent items added to our catalog:
