A Pride and Prejudice Regency Variation
In London for the season, can penniless Lizzy beguile the arrogant Mr. Darcy?
Elizabeth Bennet from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice is wintering in London with her aunt and sister. Now that Jane and Bingley are reunited, Lizzy begins to think about her own future. She may never get a chance like this again to find the husband of her hopes.
Socializing with the best noble families, she attracts a number of suitors. Yet she cannot stop thinking about the handsome but enigmatic Mr. Darcy. Despite their old animosity, he soon captures her heart. His sister Georgiana’s matchmaking helps Lizzy’s cause. But she cannot read the man himself. Sometimes he seeks her out in company and flatters her with kind words. Sometimes he holds himself aloof.
When a charming young earl begins courting her, how will Darcy react? Will he declare his love at last, or will Lizzy be forced to give up her dreams of Darcy?
This Pride and Prejudice variation is a sweet Regency romance. It’s the second book of a novel in three parts. This serial includes flirty banter, wicked rakes, and breathless kisses, but no on-page intimacy.
