“After thinking long and hard, I have come to the conclusion that—although it may not be the kind of love my sister and I once had in mind—marrying Mr Darcy would be marrying for a love of the deepest kind.”
Recovering from their parents’ deaths, Elizabeth and Jane Bennet have held their family together, leaning on the support of their uncle, Edward Gardiner, to help them survive. Thus, when Mr Gardiner is threatened with scandal and ruin, Elizabeth vows to help him. Hearing of her distress, the scandalous Fitzwilliam Darcy enters her life—offering his aid in exchange for her hand. Accepting his proposal upends her life in unimaginable ways as she learns of the treachery of the peer courting her, the betrayal and violence committed by her childhood friend, and the threat to her country as it faces another war.
As Elizabeth and Darcy face the turmoil and trials swirling around them, they risk opening their hearts to unexpected passion. In order to survive challenges from without and fears within, they must summon unknown strengths and forge new bonds to solidify a love of the deepest kind.
“I am well, best beloved.”
-For The Deepest Love
WOW! There is so much action in this book. First off, I enjoyed the romance between Elizabeth and Darcy was low angst. Some JAFF authors have been putting me through the emotion ringer lately! The romance between this timeless couple easily fall into place. While it’s still closed door… I would say the door is opend just a crack.
The story really takes on a life of it’s own with the drama coming from circumstances outside of canon. If you enjoy action pack, quick moving storylines -with major imput from secondary characters- you will enjoy this Pride & Prejudice reimagining.
