Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife was originally self-published in 1999 as The Bar Sinister and sold a phenomenal 10,000 copies. In 2004 Sourcebooks purchased the rights and republished it under its original title. Readership soared and, thanks to their request for more, in 2006 Linda penned Darcy & Elizabeth: Nights and Days at Pemberley. At last count, over 250,000 of Linda's Pride & Prejudice sequels are in print.

As a word and idiom lover, Linda's Regency research accumulated scores of hilarious and unusual euphemisms - so many that she just had to share. She did so in 2007 by way of Very Nice Ways to Say Very Bad Things, the Unusual Book of Euphemism. Currently, she's just finishing her third novel, Fandango - set in 1850 San Francisco.

“Because he has never forgiven himself any fault, he can forgive no one else's.”
Linda Berdoll, Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife: Pride and Prejudice Continues

“He purchased that great canvas also bearing the likeness to his beloved, for he could not bear another to look upon what he dreamed each night...but as he now had enjoyed the quite singular pleasure of his wife's true form revealed to him, he knew he would have [it] returned... At one time he had thought it quite impossible, but now he understood how truly inadequate the vision cast by his mind's eye had been.”
Linda Berdoll, Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife: Pride and Prejudice Continues

“That in and of itself was scandalous, for any well brought up young woman was taught first and foremost that curiosity not only killed the cat, had she been a female feline, she had it coming.”
Linda Berdoll, Darcy & Elizabeth: Nights and Days at Pemberley
