A chance, but meaningful, encounter in Netherfield’s library changes everything between Darcy and Elizabeth. As they rush to the altar, Darcy’s faulty memory may destroy their chance at domestic comfort before they begin. Knowing their obligations and no longer resisting their attraction, they forge a foundation of trust and respect. New feelings may not be enough, however, to overcome the misunderstanding which lays between them. Exploring the juncture of sentiment and reason, A Sense of Obligation, takes Darcy and Elizabeth on a passionate, humorous and introspective path toward happiness in marriage.
I liked this twist. Darcy thinks he has ruined Lizzy and asks her to marry. This all takes place at Netherfield so those other words never happen. Which is a good thing.
Darcy is all noooo! How could I?! But he is such a good man. And he falls in love. Seriously the best Darcy in a long time. I never disliked him. He was always so honorable and sweet. He was never too proud.
Lizzy has a good head on her shoulders, and yes if someone had seen them her reputation would be ruined. Just not like he thinks. So she says yes and starts to like him. And it grows.
They were so sweet together, and I did enjoy the misconceptions.
I also liked how the Bingley and Jane drama played out. And what happened to Caroline, ha! Not to mention about Wickham. Things can change so much with a few tweaks here and there.
I enjoyed it. A nice different variation, one with a super nice Darcy.
