Eliza Bennett has just returned to Australia after several years and a painful breakup in the UK. She is determined to move on and further her career, surrounded by family and friends. The last thing she wants is a new romance, especially not with an arrogant, opinionated doctor with outdated views on love and marriage.
When her sister Jane falls for handsome Doctor Charles Bingley, Eliza finds herself obliged to socialize with the odd, conceited, yet uncommonly handsome, Doctor Will Darcy.
He’s irritating and plain hard work. Her future plans definitely do not include someone like him. Despite her resolve, Eliza finds she must work hard to keep herself from falling for the complex, puzzling and sometimes harsh, Will Darcy.
For his part, Eliza Bennett embodies everything he despises in a woman – she has no tertiary qualifications, drinks and hangs at pubs, dresses in childish clothing and comes from a ‘bogan’ family. ('Bogan' is Australian and New Zealand slang for an uneducated, uncouth person from a low socioeconomic background).
Both Eliza and Will are about to discover that life has a way of turning carefully laid plans on their head, as the underlying assumptions and prejudices of each are exposed and challenged.
