How To Fall In Love With A Man You Thought You Hated

For Elizabeth Bennet, Charlotte is the friend who is—annoyingly—always right. Colonel Fitzwilliam is the mischievous brother she never had. And if their convictions that Mr. Darcy is in love with her are correct, he could be the lover she’s always wanted.

There’s only one problem—he tried to ruin her favorite sister’s life, and she made an absolute fool of herself in front of him.

Can lasting happiness come out of such a beginning? And can a man die from chasing a woman too quick to be caught? Darcy is about to find out.

“I would like to court you — call on you, go for walks, tell you how enchanting you are to see your blushes. –“

I have found myself lately craving HEA’s that are drama-free. I want the suspense and drama to come from situations outside of the couple’s relationship. As usual with Elizabeth Adams books, this one did not disappoint! Elizabeth and Darcy talk out their issues like adults. If you need a book free from angst, this one is it.

This book is delightfully drama-free. The romantic connection between Elizabeth and Darcy was so electric it gave me goosebumps on more than one occasion while reading. Add this to your must-buy list! I am already excited to reread.

Thank you to Amy at HRVBT for having me on this book tour and to Elizabeth Adams for continuing to write books that make my heart happy.

Melissa has been in love with books since she was a child. As a young girl, in her Holly Hobby decorated room, she would sit and tape scraps of paper to her books so that she could organize them by the Dewey Decimal System. She is a huge advocate for helping children learn to love reading. Along with hosting an online Regency based book club and a book club at her home, she started a book club for kids at her son’s school. These days, Melissa can be found at the library writing a book review or tucked in some quiet corner having a love affair with a newly discovered romance novel.
