Mr. Darcy's Challenge

(The second book in the Darcy Novel series)
A novel by

Darcy dreams of winning Elizabeth Bennet's hand and he has a strategy worked out. But when a chance encounter prompts Darcy to propose to Elizabeth before he has rescued Lydia, his plans go horribly awry.

Broken hearted, disillusioned and bitterly regretting his impulsive action, Darcy sees no point in fulfilling the terms of his pledge. After all, rescuing Lydia might save Elizabeth's reputation, but why should he assist her when they have no future together? Once again, Darcy finds himself faced with impossible choices: being selfless, even knowing there is no chance of reward; or holding onto his dignity by turning his back on the Bennets once and for all.

Pride and love are at loggerheads as he struggles to choose between his mind ... and his heart.

Volume Two of The Darcy Novels continues the story began in Mr. Darcy's Pledge but can be read as an independent book as well.

Look for Volume Three of The Darcy Novels coming in 2015.

The novel would appeal to readers of traditional Regency Romance as well as lovers of Jane Austen Fan Fiction (JAFF).

Mr. Darcy's Challenge is a 'what-if' Pride and Prejudice variation.

Praise for Volume One of The Darcy Novels: Mr. Darcy's Pledge

"Mr. Darcy's Pledge has to be one of my favorite pieces of Austenesque fiction... I found this book to be funny and romantic." Kinx's Book Nook

"There is so much humour, from wry asides here and there, to the awful comic creations of Lord and Lady Matlock." Leatherbound Reviews

"Fairview really knows and loves the Austen characters and writes them so realistically. I love Darcy's inner turmoil in this book." Laura's Reviews

General Praise for Monica Fairview

"elegantly written... excellent" Everything Victorian and More

"Cleverly crafted and humorously engaging" Austenprose

"Fairview's effort falls squarely in the good category. This will appeal to Austen and Regency romance fans alike." - Library Journal

"Fairview's characters often come out with little echoes of Jane Austen truisms." - Historical Novel Reviews

"Many beloved characters from P&P reappear, and it was a joy to read a sequel that breathes fresh yet true life into the denizens of Hunsford and Pemberley. No liberties are taken... Ms. Fairview provides excellent character extension to Mr. Darcy. Ms. Fairview is a definite treasure." All About Romance
