One ball, two compromises, a lifetime of happiness.
In an attempt to out-scheme his sister and see his friend happily married, Charles Bingley is planning more than a ball. But will what he has planned bring about the desired conclusion?
Fitzwilliam Darcy attends Bingley’s ball to please his friend. He has not thoughts of making a match in Hertfordshire no matter what his heart may tell him about the lovely Elizabeth Bennet.
To Elizabeth, Darcy is no more than the slightly rude friend of her neighbor, pleasant when he chooses to be but otherwise unremarkable. She long ago vowed to marry only for love.
Now, forced to marry, the expectations of both have been changed. How will they react? Will they be able to create for themselves the happily ever after they have always wanted?
