How could one simple decision change the course of a man’s life? In this fast-paced novella set in Regency England, Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy of Pemberley in Derbyshire and Darcy House in London, finds himself unwillingly, or possibly willingly, attached to Miss Elizabeth Bennet. With visions of their life ahead, he presses forward until everyone in her family and his are finally convinced they are a match made in heaven. Or, are they?

Mr. Darcy’s arrogance and pride seems to be a constant source of bitter frustration to his betrothed. He is surprised to find these less-than-sterling qualities trip himself up a time or two…or three, as well.

What readers are saying on Amazon:

“A delightful, short story with a couple of surprises for Darcy. Great writing style, a lot of humor and entertaining character descriptions. I don’t want to spoil the plot, but I had my mouth hanging open twice while reading it.” – Kate B.

“I agree with one of the other reviewers that the cover is exactly as I believe Elizabeth would look like. Loved all the humor and light heartendness. It definitely put a smile on my face.” – kristi1964

“This book was so much fun. It was light and depth simultaneously. The serious elements of pride and prejudices were explored while maintaining the light heartedness of the story. It was a quick read but when it was complete, I did not feel as if anything was lacking. Highly recommend.” – dafe1196
