“One should, after all, be with family at Christmas.”
Lizzy knew there would be challenges in her marriage to Darcy; it’s no surprise the first comes in the form of his formidable aunt, Lady Catherine de Bourgh.
Newlyweds, Darcy and Elizabeth, are to spend their first Christmas at Rosings with Darcy’s aunt, the formidable Lady Catherine de Bourgh. Her Ladyship never approved of the match and, in bearing Lady Catherine’s spiteful contempt, Lizzy wonders if she will ever be able to convince the woman to approve of the marriage. The animosity in the house at Rosings Park sparks trouble between Darcy and Elizabeth. While they can lose themselves in each others arms for a short time, it might just take a Christmas miracle to save them from the pride and prejudice that springs from having such family.
This 15,000-word short story is an intimate variation on Jane Austen’s British classic, Pride and Prejudice. It contains steamy scenes between the now married Mr and Mrs Darcy.
