Book Description

She staggered a great man. He was reeling. She was overwhelmed. 

Fitzwilliam Darcy, standing irritably at the edge of the Meryton assembly, declines to dance with Elizabeth Bennet. In a mood of revulsion, he rejects her without concern of being overheard. Country pretensions are always in need of squashing, and what better way to make clear he would not partner anyone outside his party? However, when he looks over at her, she does not appear humbled at all. She is secretly laughing at him!

Elizabeth is perversely delighted to encounter such an outrageous snob as Mr. Darcy. When he approaches her with a stiff, graceless apology, she coolly brushes him off, believing that, like most annoyances, he will go away when properly snubbed. But no! The man then puts out his hand and, not wishing to create a scene, compels her to stand up with him.

They go through the steps of the dance mutually disdainful and intent upon wounding each other. But by the time the musicians end their tune, Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy have traded barbs with such accuracy, they are unaccountably amused and engaged. Will this most inconvenient flirtation drive them apart—or, like silver buckles, are they a matched pair?

“Gibson crafts her own exquisite twist to Austen’s beloved novel, resulting in an utterly delightful, satisfying read. ” – Jan Hahn, author of An Arranged Marriage and The Journey

    I love the cover… OMG! That is fabulous in SO many ways. I also enjoy instant attraction stories and I have this on my wish list. If I don’t win a copy I will grab this for sure. Congratulations to all involved in helping Grace realize her dream of seeing this launch. Well done, guys. Blessings to everyone, stay safe, and healthy.

      Yes, I also love an instant attraction story, especially when the characters know they are in trouble and try to scramble out of love. Thank you for your enthusiasm for this premise and good luck on the giveaway!
