A fan of Jane Austen since having to study Pride & Prejudice
for her English Literature O Level in 1978, Cassandra Grafton has been indulging her passion for all things Austen for many years. Having long wanted to be a writer, the two came together in recent years, and she is now publishing her endeavours in the hope that people will enjoy reading her stories with as much pleasure as she had in writing them.
A former college lecturer (and now a PA), Cassandra is British born and bred (though she did live in the USA for five years). She has two grown up children and splits her time between Rafz in Switzerland, where she lives with her husband and imaginary cat, and Regency England, where she lives with her characters.

Inspired by Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice, A Fair Prospect is a tale of Darcy and Elizabeth.
(Please note: this is one story told across three volumes and there is, therefore, no conclusion to the storylines in the first two volumes. This story is rated PG)
In Disappointed Hopes (Vol I), Fitzwilliam Darcy returns to London a devastated and humbled man following his rejection by Elizabeth Bennet. The lady, meanwhile, is battling the unprecedented feelings stirred by having endured an innocent but intimate encounter with the gentleman in the aftermath of his proposal.
Soon on her way to Town herself for an unanticipated stay, she is comforted by the presence of an old family friend, one Nicholas Harington – the son of a wealthy family whose position in society rivals that of the Darcys of Pemberley.
Circumstance soon throws Darcy back into the company of Elizabeth, much to their mutual consternation, and also introduces him to Harington who has emerged as a potential suitor for Elizabeth’s hand, a union that is viewed as a fair prospect by all – except, perhaps, Darcy himself.
