I loved reading Mr. Darcy’s Noble Connections! With touches of a Shakespearian comedy, this Pride and Prejudice variation will have you laughing and swooning!
Our story begins a few months after Mr. Darcy’s first proposal to Elizabeth in Hunsford...
When Lady Eleanor Carlisle, a childhood friend of Elizabeth's, needs help Elizabeth is right there to lend a hand. Lady Eleanor is in love with Geoffrey Paxton, unfortunately, her father does not think Paxton is a good suitor and has made arrangements for her to marry another. Eleanor, desperate to see him, enlists her friend Elizabeth to pretend she is the one interested in Paxton so they can all spend time together.
At the same time, Paxton enlists his good friend, Darcy for the same purpose. With Darcy’s connections to Lord Bentham, Eleanor’s father, they are sure to be invited to Bentham Park.
Needless to say, Darcy and Elizabeth are surprised to be in each other's company again and would rather avoid one another. But when Darcy overhears Lord Charles wagering that he can seduce Elizabeth within a fortnight, Darcy will do his best to protect Elizabeth.
This plays out so much like a "comedy-of-errors", from the switching of place cards to misunderstandings of whom is with whom. It had me laughing out loud a few times. There are also some very romantic moments between Elizabeth and Darcy! *sigh* ...and some moments of angst. But never fear, all will work out in the end!
I enjoyed read Mr. Darcy’s Noble Connections!
