Book Blurb: For two hundred years their romance has stirred hearts…
What if Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy are destined to meet time and again, their souls searching for their true love through time and space?
And when they meet, there’s always magic.
Lizzy Bennet doesn’t want to return to Texas, but her father insists she take up the vacant schoolteacher post on the family ranch. Fitzwilliam Darcy is in search of a new life, after a year spent outrunning his past. He takes a job at the Bennet ranch, a thousand miles from the home he lost. At times chance places a person exactly where they should be, as fate takes notice of desires the heart can only whisper.
My Review: This novella is Pride and Prejudice set in Texas during the 1800's. But there really wasn't any pride or prejudice in this story. The majority of the time Lizzy is just wanting to go back to Philadelphia and not wanting to be the local school teacher. Darcy and Georgiana have been traveling the west after their ranch burned down in Tennessee. They finally settle down on the Bennet ranch after Darcy gets a job as the new stable hand. The author tried to throw Wickham in there but honestly he didn't move the plot forward all that much. This novella wasn't as good as Pemberley Ranch by Jack Caldwell but it's still a good read.
