Elizabeth, the virtually penniless daughter of the late Mr. Bennet, had come to Hunsford to seek employment, not fall in love. Mr. Darcy's arrogance was insufferable! His wealth did not impress her for she did not seek a rich husband. And yet she danced with him at a ball at Rosings Park. She vowed to keep her distance, but her sister, Kitty, wished to marry his cousin, Colonel Fitzwilliam.
Mr. Darcy had no intention of marrying the destitute Elizabeth Bennet. And yet he was swayed to make a generous gesture to end her sorry financial circumstances. And then there was a warm stolen kiss that offered the promise of love.
