DARCY IS HEAD OVER HEELS IN LOVE
Six months into his marriage to Elizabeth Bennet, Darcy is still awestruck by his beautiful wife and their unparalleled love and passion. For Darcy, each day offers more opportunities to surprise and delight his beloved bride.
LIZZY IS READY FOR ANYTHING
Elizabeth has quickly adapted to being Mistress of Pemberley, charming everyone she meets and handling her duties with grace and poise. Just when it seems life can't get any better, Elizabeth gets the most wonderful news.
TOGETHER THEY EMBARK ON THE JOURNEY OF A LIFETIME
The lovers leave the serenity of Pemberley, traveling through the sumptuous landscape of Regency England, experiencing the lavish sights, sounds, and tastes around them. With each day comes new discoveries as they become further entwined, body and soul, and a most sacred bond grows ever deeper.
Anyone that picks up this book expecting it to be a sequel of the novel will be bitterly disappointed, it is not a sequel to Jane Austen's P&P, but it is a entertaining fantasy of what might have happened to Lizzie and Darcy during their first year of marriage.
I read the first book, Two Shall Become One, recently and thought it was a good read, it was interesting and I liked the way the author showed the Darcy's as a newly married couple. In this book they travel from Pemberley to Darcy House in London, and it revolves around their life there. And we also see some favorites, the Bingley's are visiting as well. Miss Bingley is also there and there's a glimpse that she may be understanding that marriage is more than a way to improve social standing, there's love. Lady Catherine comes for a visit and let's say that Lizzy and Lady De Bourgh have an interesting conversation. The author also introduced new characters, which I loved reading about, Dr Darcy and Raja, both recently back from India and I found them to be the scene stealer's of this book.
I did feel at times that the author was going on too much about certain things, but otherwise I thought it was another good read.
