Inspired by Jane Austen's most alluring romantic couple, this modern adventure stars adaptations of characters from Pride and Prejudice and her other novels.
Liz Bennet is hiding from life on her family’s decaying, historic plantation, afraid to live fully. Hindered by duty and obligation, even reluctantly
agreeing to an untenable marriage, she cannot silence her conscience from crying out for her to flee– run – escape before it’s too late.
Prompted by a cataclysmic event and the arrival of the enigmatic, attractive Fitzwilliam Darcy, Liz is thrust into a dangerous adventure where her spirit
is released amidst international intrigue.
However, Darcy carries his own deep stash of secrets as a premier government-sanctioned assassin working with an elite clandestine group
named Obsidian. He’s spent a long, dark decade justifying his career choice while smothering his own conscience that beckons him back home
to his ancestral Pemberley, its demons, and the man he was meant to be.
He is steel, rock-n-roll, and Tennessee whiskey.
She is orchids, opera, and peaches with cream.
Together they are physically and emotionally
charged TNT, ready to explode.
“Don’t be afraid. Get on… let’s ride.” ~Fitzwilliam Darcy, the “Iceman”
Authors Note: Jane Austen wrote such wonderful characters, I borrowed their names and some of their characteristics to tell my own tale of hard-won, contemporary love. BE ADVISED: This story contains explicit sexual scenes.
