Pemberley's first ball and Elizabeth, the new Mistress of Pemberley, is suitably nervous. Mr. Darcy on the other hand is grumpy. As host, his has been roped into dancing with the young ladies present, yet the only lady he wishes to dance with, is his wife.
Even his attempt to sneak a few kisses during the ball is interrupted, so that he feels the need to claim his just reward once all the guests have left.
Please note: Tempting Mr. Darcy is an intimate and sensual Pride and Prejudice variation and only intended for a mature audience.
