Mr.Darcy's present - Regina Jeffers

The Greatest Present He Would Ever Receive is the Gift of Her Love… 

What if Mr. Darcy purchased a gift for Elizabeth Bennet to acknowledge the festive days even though he knows he will never present it to her? What if the gift is posted to the lady by his servants and without his knowledge? What if the enclosed card was meant for another and is more suggestive than a gentleman should share with an unmarried lady? Join Darcy and Elizabeth, for a holiday romp, loaded with delightful twists and turns no one expects, but one in which our favorite couple take a very different path in thwarting George Wickham and Lydia Bennet’s elopement. Can a simple book of poetry be Darcy’s means to win Elizabeth’s love? When we care more for another than ourselves, the seeds of love have an opportunity to blossom. 

My thoughts:
I needed something short, and fun! So what to choose, well duh, a variation of course.

In this one, well he has already proposed at Netherfield, Bingley has left and the Bennets are moving on. Lizzy still thinks Darcy is an ass, and Wickham is cool.

I liked the road this one took, especially with Lydia. I did like the Gardiners, but Mrs G was a bit too much at one point. She made a comeback, but for a moment I lost faith in her. As for the Bingleys, it was only Charles around and at one point he showed this sterner side, and I liked that. Not laughs all the time there.

Wickham was of course evil as always. Darcy longed for Lizzy and that's where the whole present comes in. He wants to give her something, but he can't give a single woman a present. The scandal!

Conclusion:
It was fun. I do like them for a reason.
