Note: This novelette bridges the first book in this series – Denial of Conscience, with its sequel – Without a Conscience, and Denial of Conscience should be read prior to Guilty Conscience and Without a Conscience.
For those who haven’t read Denial of Conscience, it is an exhilarating and emotionally-charged Austenesque spy-thriller that tells the story of Fitzwilliam “Iceman” Darcy, who works as a government-sanctioned assassin, and Liz Bennet, a dutiful daughter who finds herself wrapped up in international intrigue. If you want to learn more about Denial of Conscience, check out my review!
In these six chapters, or vignettes, readers pay a visit to Pemberley to see how our favorite assassin and his “hell on wheels” wife are enjoying life retired in the peaceful sanctuary of Pemberley. But is everything as idyllic and blissful as it seems? Does the domestic and quiet lifestyle fully satisfy Darcy and Liz? Or do they want more? As you might guess, Darcy and Liz still have a lot to learn about being a couple, sharing their lives, and communicating… 😉
I’ve said it before and I will say it again, I adore this modern-day reincarnation of Darcy and Elizabeth. I love the all-consuming and combustable love they have for each other! But what I love most is how their love healed past wounds, opened hearts, and brought each such happiness. It truly is amazing to witness.
And what about Obsidian? After Operation Virginia Reel, what are Caroline, Rick, Charlie, and Knightley up to? Well, you will have to read this enticing teaser to find out! By the way, I should warn you that while these delectable little morsels are satisfying, they will leave you starving for more! So make sure you have a copy of Without a Conscience at the ready! Trust me.
