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 & Giveaway | Understanding Elizabeth by Robin M. Helm

I enjoy reading stories written in Mr. Darcy’s perspective, and it’s always interesting to see how an author weaves a story of their own from the canon and how they portray Darcy.  In Understanding Elizabeth, we have Mr. Darcy at a crossroads—to listen to the angel or to the demon both […]

Review⎜Fifty Shades of Mr. Darcy by William Codpiece Thwackery

This book. This book. Whoever wrote this was either bored or high as a kite. Maybe both. I’m giving it 3 stars for the entertainment factor. I was laughing throughout the first half of the book, but somewhere in the middle of the second half, it kind of got old for me. […]

Review⎜The Coming of Age of Elizabeth Bennet by Caitlin Williams

   This book marks my 100th read in 2016! Yay! Once I started reading this, I just couldn’t stop. I finished this book at 5 am, feeling fuzzy, lighthearted, and incredibly satisfied.   In The Coming of Age of Elizabeth Bennet, Mr. Bennet passes on when Elizabeth was only fifteen. […]

Review | Lady Bridget’s Diary by Maya Rodale

Lady Bridget’s Diary felt so meta! I’ve always wondered what it was like if Bridget Jones’ Diary and Pride and Prejudice were mixed together, and this story was it for me. It was quite entertaining to see a hint of Mean Girls somewhere in there, too!   After the Duke […]

Review | Shadows Over Longbourn by Jann Rowland

  Shadows Over Longbourn is a variation in which the Bennet sisters, as distant relatives of the Darcy family, were forced to be under Mr. Darcy’s care.  This story obviously deviated from the original, and yes, some of the characters’ personalities were not as they were in Pride and Prejudice, […]
