~ A lighthearted, whimsical, entertaining, yet ever so sensual tale of Darcy and Elizabeth's pleasurable pursuits pending their nuptials. ~
With his mind agreeably engaged on the pleasures that await him once he and his dearest, loveliest Elizabeth are man and wife, Darcy's patience wanes, and he begins to wonder if he will ever find time alone with his betrothed.
Elizabeth is not oblivious of the discomfort Darcy must surely suffer. Not only does she have the key to his heart; she knows how to use it.
Bestselling historical fiction author, P. O. Dixon, is a great admirer of Historical England and its fascinating days of yore. She, in particular, loves the Regency period with its strict mores and oh so proper decorum. Her ardent appreciation of Jane Austen's timeless works set her on the writer's journey. Visit podixon.com and find out more about Dixon's writings.
When Jane Austen used these words in describing Darcy's feelings when at last Elizabeth accepted his proposal, our dear author left much to readers' imaginations.
I'd like to think the same may be said about the title of this Pride and Prejudice 'what if' story.
Pride and Sensuality
Elizabeth closed her eyes. She traced her fingers across her lips. A tiny shiver danced along her spine. Nothing could ever compare to the joy I felt. How uncertain she had been the instant his lips met hers for the very first time. Nervous … trembling, her thoughts clouded with uncertainty: would she even know how to respond to his kiss? However, he had been so patient, his lips firm against hers, yet ever so tender. Moreover, the affectionate gaze he bestowed once their lips parted and their eyes met told Elizabeth all she needed to know. For all those things she had yet to learn about making love, he would be a most attentive teacher.
