AN EARLIER ATTRACTION SPARKS
Dear Reader, this book may be chaste but the sexual tension between these two is brilliantly done.
From the very first chapter, you feel a smoldering attraction between Darcy and Elizabeth, as they quickly move from an adversarial relationship to a tentative understanding that their intentions are the same.
Darcy would admit, if only to himself, a man could easily become accustomed to the liveliness of both the lady’s expressions and her mind.
Their flirtation takes center stage even as the world around them begins to crumble: relationships change, lies and secrets are exposed, fortunes fall, and for some, it’s all riding on a horse. Throughout it all, you can’t help but keep your eyes on the delightful dance between Darcy and Elizabeth, eager for the next step, or misstep between the two.
Elizabeth held the desire to love a man with all her heart and be loved in return—to hear him whisper his devotion in her ear….
“I am willing, Miss Elizabeth.” He caught her hand and brought it to his lips, placing a gentle kiss on her knuckles.
Your heart will soar as they come together, but this version of Darcy and Elizabeth will become firmly ensconced in your heart as the epilogue generously shares their future lives and all that they establish and accomplish together. You’ll be left with a heart-felt tear in your eye, and little hope of ever finding a conclusion that is as satisfying as this portrait of their lives together.
