A Few Good Men: A Pride and Prejudice Variation (Life After the Wedding Series Book 5)

by Denise O’Hara

What would you get if you merged Pride and Prejudice with the stories of a disguised hero who rescues the innocent slated for the guillotine? You would get A Pride and Prejudice Sequel: Life after the Wedding Series #5 – A Few Good Men, which can be read as a stand- alone novel!

It supposes that there was a real Englishman who used disguises as he worked to free those slated for Madame Guillotine during the French Revolution. Colonel Fitzwilliam, Darcy’s beloved cousin, has become a wonderful accomplice for these missions. But his heart is divided between his growing feelings for Kitty Bennet and his desire to aid those who need help. When the Master of Disguise is injured, Fitzwilliam must take the lead on a dangerous mission. He will need a Few Good Men by his side to be successful and return to the women who have captured their hearts.

Along the way, Georgiana’s story is elaborated on, the Bingley and Darcys’ anniversaries are celebrated, and other events take place in the lives of Jane Austen’s beloved characters. I hope you enjoy the continuing story!

Ideas of Good and Evil

by W. B. Yeats

One of the most famous poets of the 20th century, William Butler Yeats (1865-1939) was so popular and renowned during his time that he was the leader of what came to be known as the Irish Literary Revival, on the strength of his short stories and vivid poetry. Eventually it would lead to his winning a Nobel Prize in 1923. It’s no surprise that Ireland loved its home grown son; the Nobel Prize Committee credited him for “inspired poetry, which in a highly artistic form gives expression to the spirit of a whole nation.”

Before Yeats won awards, his interest in spirituality and folklore drove him to write at length about Irish mythology and the occult before the turn of the 20th century. In many ways, it was Yeats who popularized the characters of Celtic mythology and medieval Irish folklore for contemporaneous audiences.
