When the wealthy and handsome Fitzwilliam Darcy encounters the beautiful and lively Elizabeth Bennet at a small country ball, he loudly refuses to dance with her, declaring her to be merely tolerable. Fortunately for Mr. Darcy, Elizabeth has walked away and does not overhear his insult, thus snagging the thread that would have sealed her prejudice against the prideful stranger. Unexpectedly, circumstances thrust Elizabeth into the same household as Mr. Darcy, and her proximity unwittingly proves tempting, as her tantalizing wit and playfulness evoke desires that threaten to unravel his resolve against her. In this delightful re-imagining of Jane Austen's beloved classic, Pride and Prejudice, the players are the same, but the rules have changed as the dance between Darcy and Lizzy unfolds.

This was a very long read, that bordered on irritating, at times. The author seemed determined to fit as many problems, doubts, and conflicting emotions as possible, into one book. At times, there were so many conflicts occurring at the same time, among the many characters, that it was impossible to remain emotionally invested in any of them. Then, after dragging yourself through about 50 different “climaxes”, which made the reader emotionally irritated at the sheer number of them, the author apparently got tired of her own story very abruptly. You have to buy a second book to find out how things end.
