Caught in another’s scheme, Darcy and Elizabeth must marry or face ruin.
Elizabeth believes Darcy to be a proud, dour gentleman who cannot allow himself to be happy. She attends the Netherfield Ball in hopes of a promised dance with the handsome Mr. Wickham. When Wickham asks her to meet him in the Netherfield Library, she is cautious but willing to hear the gentleman out.
Instead, Mr. Darcy meets her, intent on saving her from a mistake she hasn’t yet made. And when his passion surfaces, he kisses her only to have Miss Caroline Bingley throw open the library doors in hopes of finding a scandal.

But their newly-formed affections are tested as Wickham steals Lydia away, Mr. Collins is revealed to have a dangerous temper, and Miss Bingley does not allow a marriage to stand in the way of her own inappropriate designs.
