Author: Maria Hamilton
Paperback: 464 pages
When Elizabeth Bennet refuses his hand, Darcy is devastated and makes it his mission to change. By every civility in his power, Darcy slowly tries to win her affections, but Elizabeth is not easily swayed. Darcy vows to unlock the secrets that will make her his. He curses himself for his social awkwardness and appearance of pride, and sets out to right the wrongs he's done her family.
Elizabeth's family and friends misunderstand his intentions, and being in Elizabeth's presence proves to be both excruciating for the shy Darcy-and a dream come true. For the first time in his life, he must please a woman worth having, and the transformation leads him to a depth of understanding and love that he never could have imagined.
This is another fun and interesting take on one of Jane Austen's leading characters, the famous Mr. Darcy. Ms. Hamilton has done a fantastic job at making his spirit, once again, come alive for all of his adoring fans. It gave me all the entertainment I was looking for.
Can Mr. Darcy be all that Elizabeth is looking for in a mate? Will he have the courage to overcome his ego? These questions are answered in this well-written, romantic page-turner.
