❝The promise, therefore, was given and must be performed.❞ - Jane Austen
What if Mr. Thomas Bennet’s first-born daughter is promised to the elder Mr. Darcy’s first-born son?
Are promises made always promises kept?
Or is a love like Fitzwilliam Darcy and Miss Elizabeth Bennet’s destined to prevail?
You'll fall in love with Darcy and Elizabeth all over again while reading this heartwarming Pride and Prejudice what-if story.
"Swoon over the timeless romance of Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet in this Pride and Prejudice retelling. Fitzwilliam may be promised to Jane, but when he meets her younger sister Elizabeth, it's love at first sight." -as featured on BookBub
"Captivating and engaging from start to finish. This novel is sweet and romantic with an undertow of passion. A unique and refreshing plot, as is usual from Dixon. Deviating a lot from canon, although you will recognise some sentences in new contexts." -Elin, Vine Voice ★★★★★

A "Pride and Prejudice" variation with a new twist. The friendship between Darcy's father Fitzwilliam and Elizabeth's father Thomas Bennett, and the pact they made in their college days. The pact that their oldest son and daughter would marry. This made for interesting reading and a fresh slant on Darcy and Elizabeth's story.
The author does a wonderful job of maintaining the original integrity of the characters, only adding to, not detracting from the Darcy and Elizabeth we all know and love. Also, time and place are captured brilliantly, you are swept back in time to the regency period, I could almost hear the rustle of the women's skirts or hear the horses in the stables, see the servants serving in a grand ballroom. I was transported back in time and that is exactly as it should be when reading an exceptional piece of fiction. This book did not disappoint.
If you are looking for a new fresh variation of Darcy and Elizabeth's story I recommend this one. I give it 4 plus stars, almost perfection. Don't miss this retelling, it is available now.
