Bella Breen | Author of Pride and Prejudice Variations

Bella Breen writes historical romance stories with Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice characters. 


In a shocking turn of events for the Bennet family, their previously tranquil life is thrown into a state of glorious confusion. They discover a loophole in the entailment that could save Longbourn, their beloved home, from falling into the clutches of their odious cousin, Mr. Collins. The only hitch in this perfect plan? One of the Bennet sisters must wed a man of substantial fortune.
Seizing the moment, Mrs. Bennet sets her sights on the dashing, yet haughty Mr. Darcy as a perfect match for her quick-witted daughter, Elizabeth – despite the pair’s notorious distaste for each other. But when circumstances demand a hasty betrothal, Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy find themselves thrust into an alliance unlike any they had ever imagined.
As if navigating around the societal norms and proprieties of Regency-era England weren’t enough, the tenacious Mr. Collins proclaims his own matrimonial designs – presenting a threat to the Bennet’s future. Now, it’s up to Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy to beat the clock and secure their family estate before it’s too late. In a world ruled by strict decorum and suppressed sentiments, will they find room for love?
Elizabeth’s Rush to the Altar is a romantic comedy of over 50,000 words featuring Mr. Darcy, Elizabeth Bennet, a highly determined matchmaking Mrs. Bennet and odious Mr. Collins.

Current Pride and Prejudice Variations in Progress

Rush to the Altar

Mrs. Bennet, in her desperation to save Longbourn from falling into the hands of the insufferable Mr. Collins, discovers a legal loophole. Enter the wealthy, aloof Mr. Darcy - a perfect match, except for his reluctance and Elizabeth's initial disdain.


What a beautiful, touching ending to a lovely, engaging story!!!! I have enjoyed having the privilege to read this heartwarming tale!!! GREAT story!!
Oh, such a beautiful story. I like it when they're like this and neat and clean. A beautiful story that I can read to my grandchildren. Thanks so much for sharing this with us.
This is a rare treat indeed, a newly published Pride and Prejudice sequel. As that is my absolute favourite trope, I am smiling like the Cheshire cat... Entering at the Darcy/Bingley wedding. Elizabeth was reflecting on a couple of rather disturbing occurrences that had happened before their courtship and it set the tone of what was to come. The wedding night was a high-light, it is a chaste read and I will try not to give too much away so I will only mention that awkwardness and embarrassment had me laughing out loud. It was done with charming sweetness though. Darcy was a bit stiff in this story and I loved how Elizabeth worked on his tactile sense to loosen him up. Elizabeth's honesty was another trait I adored. After a few days in London, shopping and going to the Opera, ODC ventured to Pemberley with Georgiana and Mrs Annesley. The the trip was rather eventful and the honeymoon at Pemberley was a rather crowded one... The guests brought everything from joy to threats and insults but there might even be a murderer in their midst. Ends with an epilogue. A thrilling read, in a light-hearted sort of way, that had me biting my nails one minute and laughing out loud the next...
