Georgiana arrives unexpectedly to escape Lady Catherine and her unbearable matchmaking. But that ends up backfiring as the old dragon follows her to Pemberley with two suitors in tow! A concerned Colonel Fitzwilliam travels to Pemberley to ascertain Georgiana’s well-being. And last but not least, the Wickhams descend upon Pemberley, thinking their presence most desired and their welcome assured.

What if an unexpected series of events caused the four principal couples of Pride and Prejudice to form completely different pairings?

What if Mrs. Bennet caught Mr. Darcy in a compromising situation with Lydia Bennet and forced him to enter into an engagement to protect her reputation?

What if everything was completely mixed-up and everyone wanted to be with someone other than their betrothed?

A romantic farce full of humor would ensue….

In her newest Pride and Prejudice variation author Victoria Kincaid takes readers on a very twisted romp. Instead of employing one popular romantic trope, she utilizes four! Darcy is in a forced engagement with Lydia, Wickham is blackmailed into an engagement with Charlotte Lucas, Jane accepts Mr. Collins’ proposal as a marriage of convenience, and Lizzy enters into a fake engagement with Mr. Bingley! Poor Mr. Darcy wants to desperately find away out of his engagement with Lydia. They both know he isn’t the rake who led her to the library at Netherfield and seduced her. And even though Lizzy was at first outraged at the despicable actions she suspected of Mr. Darcy, she now begins to believe that something isn’t quite adding up and that Mr. Darcy must be innocent. But how can they prove that when Lydia insists Mr. Darcy was her seducer! Continue reading »
