Elizabeth lives a charmed life or so it seems. Despite her noble relations and all the wealth and privileges entailed, there's something missing. During his stay at Netherfield Park in Hertfordshire, Darcy learns of a tragedy that befell the Bennets, a family from a neighboring estate, over a decade prior. One of the Bennet daughters vanished in broad daylight from the streets of Lambton. Will Darcy unravel the mystery behind the disappearance of the second-born Bennet daughter? What if it means losing the one woman who has captured his heart?
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.
Some of my favorite Pride and Prejudice retellings are those in which Darcy and Elizabeth have others vying for their affections. That's not to say I wish to see them apart. Our dear couple must have their happily ever after with each other.
Lady Elizabeth: Everything Will Change Book One
Elizabeth entered the ballroom at Matlock House with the thought of but one gentleman in mind—Mr. Darcy. She had dressed with more than usual care, and indulged herself in the pleasing prospect that she would spend the better part of the evening with him. Any manner of intercourse with him would do, be it dancing together or merely debating the latest books. The best part of it all was that their being together would not give rise to speculation of an attachment, for everyone who thought they knew anything knew that he was tacitly engaged to marry his cousin Miss Anne de Bourgh and she was tacitly engaged to marry the wayfaring Lord Robert Frawley.
