Steampunk Darcy

Steampunk Darcy

A novel by

When Seraphene Grant is offered a job by Longbourn Laboratories' William Darcy, she is both intrigued and suspicious. Seraphene is trying to stay on the right side of legal, and she can't think of a single legitimate reason he would want to hire her. She's determined to put her checkered past behind her and she won't compromise that for an arrogant descendant of the Darcy family who wants to reproduce his ancestral home.

But Darcy has something more risky in mind, and he knows Seraphene is the perfect match for the job. The problem is, he can't tell her what the job involves. The only way he can gain her trust is to lie about what he is doing! Meanwhile, all Seraphene's instincts are telling her to run. But in a post-apocalyptic world where well-paid jobs are scarce and charming, wealthy gentlemen in cravats are even scarcer, how can she resist?

Perhaps she should have, because being around William Darcy soon becomes more and more dangerous - - in more ways than one.

Buckle your seats and get ready for a romantic adventure involving swashbuckling pirates, automatons and parasols in this Pride and Prejudice spin-off.

"Surprises, romance, humor and drama abound in a way never before seen through a filtered derivation of Austen's imagination. Monica Fairview has crafted an interesting and compelling story which can stand on its own, regardless of classification. Steampunk Darcy is a rousing, amazing adventure, one that breaks new ground in Austenesque fiction and does not fail to entertain." ~Laura Hartness, Calico Critic

"I was pleasantly surprised how Ms. Fairview was able to bring an Austen story to life in a Steampunk setting. The use of Wickham's character is very creative. If you love Austenesque fiction with a little creativity and flare, I highly recommend Steampunk Darcy." ~ Kendal, Kinx's Book Nook

"This is what Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice might have looked like if it was set in the future ... the spirit of the Pride and Prejudice story is there married with the author's own storytelling, characters, plot development, and world building. Personally, I was impressed with the world she made along with what seemed like character blends, character role reversals, and even new characters....
All in all, it was a wonderful reading experience that I think intrepid Austenesque fans should not pass up and it would have appeal to a wider audience of Steampunk and Dystopian romance lovers." ~Sophia Rose, Delighted Reader

"A wild steampunk adventure story with pirates, industrial espionage, rebellious teenage sisters, scheming relatives, romance, and misdirections set in a post-ecological apocalyptic world. There's also clandestine research into the past. There's some witty and snappy dialog as well as an intriguing cast of characters ... in a remarkably different future world." ~Gayle Surrette, SFRevu

"An exhilarating ride! The characters were well-drawn, complex, and engaging; I especially enjoyed our spirited heroine and her battles with the officious Boss! ... I greatly enjoyed was searching for the subtle parallels and nods to Pride and Prejudice. Some were less obvious than others - there was a great social divide, a rejected offer, a sister needing to be rescued, a Caroline Bingley and George Wickham character stirring up some trouble, and an abundance of pride and stubbornness." ~Meredith, Austenesque Reviews
