A Pride and Prejudice Novella and Sequel to Discovering Mr. Darcy
She’s not an heiress. He’s not a parson. But each is exactly what the other desires.
Richard Fitzwilliam has always planned on marrying for money. What second son of an earl would not? How else was he supposed to keep to a standard of living with which he had grown accustomed? Besides, love in marriage was a happy coincidence for those not born to a title or money, was it not?
Mary Bennet has always longed for a quiet, home of her own — preferably a parsonage. She has studied and prepared herself accordingly — pouring over her books of sermons. She is determined to be well-versed on how best to aid ladies, young and old alike, with whatever guidance they seek.
However, when Richard meets Mary, all previous notions are turned on end. Will prudence and propriety prevail or will lessons be learned that no book can teach? And what is a poor second son to do when the one luxury he cannot do without is not an heiress?
