One night, to decide his entire life's happiness.

Chastened by Charles Bingley following Mr. Bennet’s untimely death, Fitzwilliam Darcy determines he will offer marriage to Elizabeth Bennet, but she marries another.

Years later, a widowed Elizabeth is mistress of Longbourn, and has vowed she will never marry again. A house party at Netherfield brings them back together, but Darcy will have to win more than her heart if he is to have any chance at making her mistress of Pemberley.

Readers of Sophie Turner's more chaste Constant Love series should be aware that this novel contains decidedly adult content at certain parts of the story.

This book may be unsuitable for people under 18 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Mature Content

The day after the Netherfield ball, tragedy befalls the Bennet household. Mr. Bennet passes away, and so Mr. Collins, who wishes to take a wife, inherits Longbourn. Without even waiting for the Bennet women to go on with their mourning, Mr. Collins proposes to Elizabeth and plans to have their wedding a while later.

Elizabeth is trapped in this hopeless situation with no choice but to comply. She knows she must marry the man, no matter how odious he is. When Mr. Bingley returns alone to pay his respects, Elizabeth hoped and prayed he’d propose to Jane, but when he didn’t, she knew she must sacrifice her happiness to save her family from destitution. So, off to the church they go.

Review | Act Like It by Lucy Parker

I love this book! A well-written slow burn romance with my favorite trope (hello, fake relationship!), witty banter, and a little Pride and Prejudice-esque feel to it. I wouldn’t go as far as to call it a modern-day Pride and Prejudice, but there’s a lot of influence there, especially with the main characters. And […]
