Some form of devilry has come over Mr. Darcy.

Since his father’s death, Fitzwilliam Darcy has endeavored to be reliable, responsible, and restrained. But upon visiting Netherfield Park in Hertfordshire, he finds himself weary of the struggle to be so damnably well regulated and delights in a revival of the carefree mischief that characterized his younger days.

What brings on this sudden reversal? Perhaps it is a shocking incident that takes place upon his first entering the neighborhood when he rescues Miss Elizabeth Bennet from the raging current of a rain-swollen stream. The so-called “lady” does not prefer to be rescued, and Darcy’s subsequent dunking, rather than resulting in the gratitude that is his due, is met with her confounding resentment of his interference.

This tale of Darcy’s entanglement with the mysteriously grief-stricken Bennet family is interwoven with a love story—a most delicious exchange of looks, barbs, pranks, and innuendos as Miss Elizabeth, the “lightning bolt of Longbourn,” regularly singes, frustrates, and humbles the man from Derbyshire.

    That cover is amazing. I love this story. I am going to have to read it again. Thanks to Meryton Press for putting this out there for us. Thanks to the designers for that cover, heavy sigh. And, most of all, thanks to Grace Gibson for her wit and excellent writing. This was 5+++ stars for me. It is in my top ten for the year… heck, make that my top 5 for the year. Blessings to everyone.

      Isn’t Grace an excellent author? We’re so happy you love the story and appreciate her wit and writing. It’s an awesome boost to all of us. It may be time for me to have a reread of the story myself! We’re also happy you like the cover. Grace found the perfect painting for it, and thankfully, the Barnstaple Town Council let us use it! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by, Jeanne.

    Like Jeanne, I definitely intend to reread this and most probably many times! I love this mischievous, flirty Darcy so much! And the humour? Perfect! This certainly earned the five stars I gave it. Thanks to all involved and just keep up the excellent work!

      I feel the same, Glynis. I loved this Darcy, too. I think I had a smile on my face during most of the story. Bandit and his antics kept me laughing. Thank you for the five stars!

    Es ist wundervoll. Flüssig und nachvollziehbar geschrieben. Ich konnte es gut lesen, auch wenn es nicht meine Muttersprache ist. Die Geschichte nimmt einen mit und mehr als einmal wird man überrascht und muss schmunzeln. Ich konnte es nicht aus der Hand legen und war traurig als ich es zu Ende gelesen hatte. Ich werde es definitiv mehrfach lesen und mir so eine schöne Zeit bereiten.

      Sophia Thorsen and a couple of her friends translated the comment. This is what they told me it said.

      “The story is wonderful. It is written fluently and comprehensively.
      I found I could read is easily even though it was not written in my mother tongue. The story catches you, surprises you more than once and makes you smile. I could not put it down and was sad when it ended. I will definitely read it multiple times and enjoy it.”

      Thank you so much for the lovely comment. We are thrilled with your thoughts and thank you for sharing them with us.
