Charlotte Collins
When Charlotte Lucas married Mr. Collins in Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, she sacrificed love for financial security. After his death, Charlotte and her sister Maria are thrust into a world of country dances and eligible gentlemen. But when an unprincipled suitor compromises Charlotte's reputation, she struggles to extricate herself from her slander, thus revealing the nature of true love.

"Maria Lucas"
In this continuation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, Maria Lucas marries Mr. Jonas Card in an attempt to extricate herself and her sister Charlotte from a dire financial situation. Mr. Card loves Maria and has vowed to woo her. Alas, she views him only in friendly terms. But through a series of unexpected events, Mr. Card succeeds in wooing his wife without saying a word. (5000 word short story)

Caroline Bingley
Banished from her brother's household, Caroline Bingley is forced to return, humiliated and distressed, to her mother's home in the north of England, but she does not intend to remain there long, for nothing will prevent her from taking her rightful place in London society. When all that Caroline has ever dreamed of attaining--an ancient family name, a title, and a home of her own--is finally within her reach, will she grasp for it even if it means disregarding the workings of her own heart? Or will she cast off the trappings of society and give herself to true love?

4.0 out of 5 stars Best P&P sequel I've read. November 4, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The first e-book by J. Becton that I read was Absolute Liability (A Southern Fraud Thriller), a contemporary mystery, Book 1 in a planned series, with Book 2, DEATH BENEFITS, most likely to be available in Jan 2012. Since I enjoyed that mystery, I went looking for more books by Becton and was delighted to find this. It's a double delight for me as a longtime PRIDE AND PREJUDICE fan and now as a fan of Becton's writing.

There are so many books written as sequels to, continuations of, or variations on P&P that it boggles the mind. Why mess with the almost perfect real thing written by Jane Austen? Her story developed perfectly, ended perfectly and didn't cry out, in my mind, for any sequels or variations on its theme. But I ordered Becton's PERSONAGES out of curiosity and because her stories focus on secondary characters of P&P, not on Elizabeth and Darcy. I don't usually like anybody messing around with Austen's famous couple.

This, BTW, is the collection of Charlotte Collins: A Continuation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Maria Lucas: A Short Story in the Personages of Pride & Prejudice Collection, and Caroline Bingley: A Continuation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, all of which are available separately. So this is quite the bargain at $4.99 for all three.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! April 4, 2012

Great bargain -- 3 stories for $5.99! Also, one of the better Pride & Prejudice sequels! I liked Charlotte Collins' story line and she was more developed as a character here.

3.0 out of 5 stars Uneven - a 2-star novel packaged with a 4-star novel March 20, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
I was startled to read just now that the author was an editor prior to embarking on a writing career. The two novels and the short story are unevenly written. I began reading Charlotte Collins and nearly gave up. I'm glad I didn't, because I ended up really enjoying her take on Caroline Bingley. But the first novel suffered from a lot of wrong words, especially toward the beginning of the story, for some reason. I was taken aback by how blatant some of the errors were. Charlotte wears a foreboding expression, when I'm certain it should have been a forbidding one. Someone looks downtrodden, when he should have been downcast. Charlotte acknowledges someone "with a sedate curtsey and a jaundiced eye." No, no, no. Jaundiced doesn't mean what you think it means. Charlotte has "dispatched" with her dark mourning clothes, but the wanted word is "dispensed." During a game of cards, someone "clenched" the win, when it should be "clinched." Someone says that by surrounding themselves with young people, they also became "more interesting by default," when what they mean is that they become "more interesting by association." Charlotte thinks that one of the characters is a "cretin," meaning ill-mannered, but that word had been very recently appropriated into psychiatry by a French doctor around 1800. That is a modern use of the word (as in calling someone an imbecile) and glaringly anachronistic.

The strange thing is that after about 9 or 10% into the ebook, I no longer noticed wrong word choices. I don't know if she focused and proofread better after that, or if someone else had read only parts of her rough draft. After that, my criticisms are more with the characters. I had difficulty distinguishing between Mr.
