Book Blurb: In this Pride & Prejudice variation, Elizabeth and Darcy have a second chance to get things right. Will they be able to come together this time, or will pride intervene yet again?

Seven years after Darcy’s disastrous proposal, Darcy is in need, not of a wife, but of a governess for his young daughter. Imagine his surprise when he discovers Elizabeth Bennet on the list of possible candidates provided by the employment agency. The question is, should he take her on as a governess, or would he be playing with fire?

Elizabeth Bennet is forced by her reduced circumstances to take on a position. However, when Mr. Darcy invites her for an interview, she is embarrassed and humiliated. How could she possibly live under the same roof as the man she had rejected so strongly seven years ago?

Whatever decision she makes, there will be a high price to pay… one way or the other.

My Review: So I went into this book apprehensive because I really don't like reading a book where either character has married before but in this one they both have! Poor Darcy married his cousin Anne after being rejected by at Hunsford by Elizabeth. Elizabeth marries a sea captain but both lose their spouses. Darcy's daughter Kathy is spoiled and needs a governess so he hires Elizabeth who was looking for a position to teach her.

This book was delightful and a page-turner. Some parts of it were slow and a little boring but that doesn't last long. I definitely recommend reading this book if you are looking for a fast read with a little drama.

Rating: 4 stars
