A Pride and Prejudice Prequel Novella
She needs a rescue. He is her only hope.
When Lucy's father dies, she must either marry quickly or go to live with her uncle. For Lucy, there is only one choice, and his name is Philip Dobney.
To be presented with an offer of marriage from a long time friend is shocking to be sure! But the thought is not unwelcome. Philip is in need of a wife, after all, and Lucy is more than qualified to be a parson's wife.
However, what seems to be a simple solution soon becomes complicated when Lucy's uncle shows up with plans to gain enough money to cover debts -- both his own and those owed to him. Events from the past combined with threats in the present threaten to tear Lucy and Philip apart unless Darcy can help his friends save their blossoming love and rid Lucy of her uncle once and for all.
This book contains a bonus Regency romance short story of about 5,900 words called Hope at Dawn. The novella, And Then Love, is approximately 22,000 words in length.
