About this ebook

Elizabeth Bennet from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice is enjoying a visit with her newly married best friend in the idyllic countryside of Kent. Her pleasant holiday is interrupted when the arrogant Mr. Darcy appears at nearby Rosings Park. During their frequent meetings, her spirited retorts do nothing to deter his attentions to her. In fact, they only seem to encourage him.

Realizing Darcy is in love with her, Elizabeth is torn by an awful dilemma. With her father’s estate entailed on a male heir, she and her sisters face the prospect of poverty if they do not marry well. Darcy’s wealth could save them. But how can she marry a man she does not esteem simply for the material comfort he can offer?

Fitzwilliam Darcy is determined to forget the lovely Elizabeth, who stole his heart during his autumn sojourn in Hertfordshire. So naturally, when he learns she is spending the spring within walking distance of his aunt's estate at Rosings, he goes for an extended stay. He finds Elizabeth even more enchanting than he remembered.

When Darcy discovers Elizabeth’s rightful resentments against him, he seeks to make things right and court her properly. Can he convince her of his worth? Or have his past sins—and the machinations of an old enemy—sunk him in her opinion forever?

This Pride and Prejudice variation is a full-length, sweet Regency romance. It includes kissing and a fade-to-black wedding night scene.

4 stars *eArc provided by Booksprout for honest review* This was so close to being a 5 star book but never quite got there for me. My one main criteria for being a 5 star is that I just can't put down the book. Where the story has so engrossed me that I just forget to stop reading. All else falls away and it is just the story. I never quite reached that place here but it was so very close. As with most Jane Austen variations it helps if you are somewhat familiar with her original story, even if it is only by movie or mini-series, but not mandatory to fully enjoy, it just adds extra depth and insight . This is a really good P&P variation. It was true to the original but stands on it own. If you a an Austen fan or just like regency romance then I highly recommend this book.
