Book Blurb: Separated by pride, prejudice, and misunderstandings, betrayed by their temper and wounded by vanity, Elizabeth and Darcy take separate paths in the heat of anger—and are tormented when they must reap what they have sown.

Darcy struggles to avoid the woman he loves more every day, but Fate keeps bringing them together. Elizabeth’s thoughts wander to Mr. Darcy and, even in his absence, her feelings for him improve, until she realizes he is the only man in the world with whom she could be truly happy. Such revelations come far too late when both are bound by promises to others. Can they live a lifetime torn between love and duty?

Stealing a moment of passion one hot summer night, how can Elizabeth and Darcy continue without the other after knowing such true happiness?

My Review: I went into this book knowing that there was going to be angst but damn not that much. I feel so sorry for both Darcy and Lizzy. They want to be together but they are both promised to another. Even after Darcy gets out of his engagement Lizzy keeps her promise to her betrothed and marries him. Though he dies after three years it takes another two for Lizzy to move on with her life and accept Darcy.

I really enjoyed reading a variation where both Lizzy and Darcy are promised to other people. I can't say that I've ever seen another variation like it. If you like a lot of angst with your Pride and Prejudice then this is the book for you.

Rating: 4½ stars out of 5
