It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.
…a woman possessing of a good fortune, however, has a very different set of wants. Miss Felicity Darcy may not be poised to inherit the greater part of her family’s estate, but in the wake of her father’s death, she has taken on the role of eldest son—managing Pemberley, a carefully-calculated engagement to Arthur de Bourgh, and assisting her brother in his recovery from disappointment and dissolution. Her detractors in London may whisper behind their fans about her pride and her disagreeable manners, but she is a Darcy. Darcys do not play the winsome debutante for the amusement of gossipy old women.
(She is too old for the role, beside.)
All is well until her close friend, Charlotte Bingley, invites her to spend the summer at Netherfield. There, Darcy finds her attention drawn to witty Edmund Bennet, the penniless second son of an ignominious family. An association with him—of any sort—could tarnish her and her family’s reputation, as well as unraveling the hard work of past five years. And yet, the more time she spends in his presence, the more tangled she finds herself in the lives of the Bennet brothers—and the more she finds herself unwilling to cut those ties.
