True Love Never Fails 
True Love Book 1 
Debra-Ann Kummoung 
Genre: Historical Romance 

From the family lives of the Bennet sisters and their characterful parents, to the hidden charm, grace, and elegance of the unflappable Mr. Darcy, it might seem as if fans of Austen’s timeless classic, Pride & Prejudice, know all there is to know about this truly great novel. However, within the pages of this much-loved book, there are questions which call out for answers… the greatest of which are: what if everything we believed to be true about the Bennets and their fellow characters was, in fact, a veneer for something quite different? What if the behavior and intentions of the iconic sisters was all an act? And what if Mr. Darcy, Mr. Bingley, and all the other refined gentlemen of Pemberley and beyond were not the genteel and mannered men we saw them to be?

Such questions, such mysteries, and such tantalizing possibilities form the backbone of True Love Never Fails, a daring and bold reimagining of Jane Austen’s most famed and adored work. Throughout the pages of this stunning novel, which abounds in all that we fell in love with in the chapters of Pride & Prejudice - and much more besides - we’re left second-guessing every motive, every word, and every eventuality we thought we knew so well. As readers, we’re taken into the heart of a dazzling set of cliff-hangers and revealed truths… and we’ll never be able to look our favorite characters in the same way again.

Alongside the rollicking storyline that weaves its way through the moral mazes of 18th century English high society, True Love Never Fails introduces its readers to the elusive and serious Mary Bennet. She’s a sister with a secret, and one who holds the key to the heart of the fun-loving Colonel Fitzwilliam, around whom a spiraling storyline forms. As revelation follows revelation, hearts will be broken, bonds will be formed, and the truth behind this timeless novel will be reimagined and revealed. Thanks to the astonishing deftness of the storytelling, and the author’s keen eye for a twist and tantalizing details, readers will find themselves on a new ride through a familiar landscape that’s as breathlessly romantic as it is captivating. From the first page you’ll be hooked, and by the time you reach the the very last, you’ll be calling out for more from this awe-inspiring retelling of Austen’s masterpiece.

Warning - Cliffhanger! 

“There is just one thing that I am not happy about.” When the group glanced at him in confusion, he clarified with a frown to his new betrothed, “Mary, you address Bingley and my cousin by their first names, but you have yet to call me by my given name.”

Mary blushed as she answered, “That is because I do not know your given name.”

Darcy laughed at his cousin. “Fitzwilliam, you have been courting Mary for two months. How is it that she does not know your given name?”

The colonel placed a hand on her arm. “It is well, Mary. My cousin’s sense of humor is legend in the family, and I understand your confusion. Allow me to introduce myself. My name is the Right Honorable Geoffrey Richard Fitzwilliam, second son of Arthur Peter Fitzwilliam and Helen Maria Fitzwilliam, the Earl and Countess of Matlock. I cannot wait to introduce you to my parents as my betrothed. They will love you.”

True Love Conquers All 
True Love Book 2 

In the anticipated conclusion, True Love Conquers All, author Debra-Ann Kummoung returns you to her unique Pride & Prejudice retelling just hours after the shocking ending in True Love Never Fails… which had cost Mary Bennet her new engagement to Colonel Fitzwilliam.

Elizabeth and Jane along with Darcy and Bingley try to console Mary in the aftermath. Family and friends try to bring our couple back together again, but both are stubborn in their refusal to see the other.

Recalled to war, Colonel Fitzwilliam must depart England, leaving behind his family and friends and most importantly his heart. With the reappearance of an old friend to help him in this difficult time, Colonel Fitzwilliam despairs that he has lost the only lady he has ever loved.

Join the journey across the treacherous ocean to the bustling shores of Portugal and on to the battlefields of Spain. With surprising twists and turns and the steadfastness of a young lady’s heart, discover the truth that true love never fails, but rather despite all obstacles, true love conquers all. 

I fell in love with Pride & Prejudice when I read it in high school. Something about that time - the courtly manners of society, the clothing, and so many other things. Don't get me a wrong, I'm a modern girl and wouldn't last a day without my modern conveniences, but I can still fantasize about that time period. 

My husband is my inspiration for Mr. Darcy & Colonel Fitzwilliam (when the good colonel appears in one of my books). My husband has the manners of Darcy but has been a military man like the colonel - so I got both in one man. 

In 2020, I will be release the conclusion to True Love Never Fails... and I will be working on a new book - Mr. Darcy's Cinderella Bride. I will also be doing a gentle edit on Falling for Elizabeth Bennet.

I'm so glad that you like my covers. I had a specific image in mind when I created them. The second book - True Love Conquers All was the work of several people. The flowers are made from paper (up-cycled copies of Pride & Prejudice) and the rings are my husband and I's actual wedding rings. I took the flowers and rings to JCP Portrait studios and they took the pictures. Since this was a two book story, I decided to use the same background as the first book.

I like to keep my covers simple and let people decide for themselves what the characters look like. Please feel free to reach out to me on social media if you would like to chat. Thanks for being a part of this tour!
