William Darcy counts down the last few months to his 30th birthday with dread. Orphaned as a child, his parents’ will includes a bizarre clause: Darcy must get married by his 30th birthday in order to inherit the family fortune. To make matters worse, the press knows about this deadline, as do the hordes of women chasing him in the hopes of becoming Mrs. Darcy. His family legacy hangs in the balance, but Darcy has little faith in the fairer sex. Will he find a woman he wants to marry, and quickly?
Elizabeth Bennet is determined to pursue her education and career without letting a man get in the way. When her traveling companion drops out, her planned hike on the Appalachian Trial is jeopardized. She meets the spoiled, snobby William Darcy just when he is desperate to escape the spotlight. No one will suspect that the Prince of Manhattan has gone backpacking! Darcy and Elizabeth form a tenuous partnership and begin a 300-mile journey that will transform them both.
In classic romantic comedy tradition, Boots & Backpacks follows our reluctant partners as they build trust, friendship, and even more. Six weeks together on America’s most famous hiking trail may turn out to be just what these two need!
A story that has everything to enjoy and have a fun time with romance, humor, love scenes, adventure, nature and a new backdrop in which our favorite Pride and Prejudice couple face their flaws and reinforce their qualities.

It’s more than a romance, but also a long journey of two people being remade into something more.
But most of all, watching two lonely broken people find love and happiness was the big pay off.

“I highly recommend this book because it is not just about a love story, but a romance about hope, about self-discovery, about redemption, about changing their own choices and their own lives, but above all a novel about nature from which it’s possible to learn a lot, first of all, that love is above all friendship.”
