Home » » REVIEW: To Refuse Such A Man by P.O. Dixon
Book Blurb: Miss Elizabeth Bennet must decide whether to accept or refuse a proposal from the last man in the world whom she could be prevailed on to marry.
At least two unhappy alternatives are also before her: certain scandal and her mother's disapprobation. Is there a path to happily ever after in wake of an alliance born out of such circumstances?
My Review: This book starts off with Lizzy taking care of her sister at Netherfield. However, Mr Darcy and Elizabeth end up taking walks together and happen to be left alone in the library with no chaperone. Nothing happens but the damage was already done apparently. Upon arriving home Mr Collins is there and starts showing Lizzy attention that she doesn't desire. The day after the Netherfield ball Mr Collins proposes, he starts to get rejected but then he happens to mention asking Jane to marry him and Lizzy asks for time to consider his proposal. The same day Darcy shows up because of rumors that because they spent time in the library together without a chaperone that Lizzy is surely ruined. She ends up accepting him and this ends up starting a chain of events that lead to an almost immediate wedding.
I would have loved for this novella to be longer and tell us about their life a little bit after the wedding. As a whole though is was a good little novella and is definitely worth a read. I'm eagerly awaiting more books from this author.
