Pride & Prejudice meets alternate history.
Six years after Napoleon’s invasion of England….
Fitzwilliam Darcy is a traitor. He even admits to collaborating with Napoleon’s troops. And Elizabeth Bennet despises all traitors.
But she can’t make sense of Darcy. He doesn’t act like a traitor. He risks his own safety to save young women from the French. And how can she despise a man who loves puppies? Something about him doesn’t add up – and she finds him far too attractive.
Then Darcy’s carefully constructed world crumbles, and he must entrust his closest-held secret to Elizabeth. To protect that secret, Elizabeth must disappear entirely, leaving her family and Darcy behind, to plunge herself into the dizzying world of fashionable London and the dangers of the Loyalist Resistance. Nothing will ever be the same again.
Darcy is determined to find Elizabeth. Now that she knows the truth about him, there’s nothing to keep them apart – nothing, that is, until the day Darcy is forced to choose between his country and the life of the woman he loves….
Elizabeth is excited to announce the release of Eryn Scott’s contemporary romance The Beauty of Perhaps, now available at Audible. Elizabeth’s Scottish accent got a workout in this novel, which is set primarily on a small island off the coast of Scotland. You can learn more about Eryn Scott at her website, and listen to a sample from this wonderful novel at Audible.
Teacher required. Must have boat.
Molly is a predictable, no surprises, plan ahead kind of girl, and the last person who should answer the ad for a teaching job on the remote Scottish island of Lilliebrae. She’s never been the type of adventurous spirit that would even consider such a radical change. And truthfully, she only took the job after her life in America went from bad to worse. From day one on the island, Molly’s sure she’s not meant to stay. When a rugged journeyman arrives, things get even more complicated, and she’s pushed even further outside her comfort zone. With his help, Molly works on finding the beauty of perhaps.
In this snapshot of modern day Scotland, Eryn Scott weaves one woman’s journey of self-discovery with Scottish tradition and a sprinkling of windswept love.
Elizabeth is excited to announce the release of the second production in the Anton Chekhov series from The Online Stage: Uncle Vanya, now available at Audible!

Uncle Vanya is Anton Chekhov’s 1902 tragicomedy focusing on the romantic entanglements of the residents of a declining country estate. Vanya loves Helena, the unhappily married wife of aged professor Serebrakoff. Sonia loves Dr. Astroff, but he’s more interested in Helena. Serebrakoff loves only himself and is idealized by Vanya’s mother, who believes him to be a genius. All the characters waver between love and hate, between idleness and industry, between idealism and despair, in Chekhov’s “Scenes from Country Life”.

The House of Closed Doors series by Jane Steen is now available as a boxed set on Audible. Elizabeth also narrated the three novels as individual releases, all at Audible. This wonderful series incorporates historical fiction, romance, and mystery through the coming-of-age of Nell Lillington.
Set in the American Midwest of the 1870s, this three-novel story blends mystery, romance, history, and family drama in over 30 hours of entertaining, fast-paced listening. See why listeners rave about the writing, the plot twists, and the characters.
Nell Lillington is a spoiled, headstrong 16-year-old when she finds herself pregnant after letting a flirtation with handsome Cousin Jack get out of hand. More willing to bear the consequences of an illegitimate pregnancy than marry, she refuses to name the father and agrees to give birth in a Poor Farm and give the baby up for adoption. At the Poor Farm she meets Tess O’Dugan, a woman the world calls an imbecile but who soon becomes the sister Nell never had.
Martin Rutherford, Nell’s childhood friend, only learns of baby Sarah when Nell seeks to escape from the Poor Farm – with the child. His own aversion to marriage stems from his dark, unhappy childhood, and despite his attachment to Nell he makes no objection to her plan to move to Kansas, away from prying eyes, with Tess and Sarah. Martin, now free of family ties, has his own plans – he wishes to build a grand department store in Chicago and become one of that growing city’s merchant princes.
But Nell and Martin’s plans are steered off course by the secrets and lies of other people, and their paths to happiness are strewn with murder. Nell’s story will take you from the Illinois prairie, to frontier Kansas, and back to a Chicago teeming with opportunistic new Americans and ruthless men.
