Summary

A Pride and Prejudice variation.

Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy immediately regrets his insult to Elizabeth Bennet at the Meryton Assembly, and takes the opportunity during a chance meeting on Oakham Mount to apologize. Reticent to so easily forgive Darcy's boorish behavior, Elizabeth announces that she will consider Darcy's request after further studying his actions. Darcy impulsively offers to complete six labors chosen by Elizabeth, in the tradition of the 12 labors of Hercules, to demonstrate that he can be a better man. In exchange, Darcy will not only receive Elizabeth's friendship but also a token, of his choosing, at the completion of each labor.

Join the traditional Pride and Prejudice characters, and some new ones, as Elizabeth designs labors to test the boundaries of Darcy's social faults. The outcomes surprise both Elizabeth and Darcy as the completion of Darcy's labors and the collection of his tokens deepens their friendship. However, just as their friendship blossoms into something more their future is threatened by an act of revenge. Will Darcy's labors lead to a deep, abiding love?

Author's note: Listeners should be aware that there is an event in the audiobook of a violent physical attack which is described explicitly, both as it happens and in its re-telling. There are some descriptions of kissing that demonstrate the ardent love of our dear couple, but the situations are written in good taste. For Regency-period enthusiasts, there are some liberties taken with the behavior of a courting couple.

Irritating

I stopped listening at Chapter 4. The liberal use of modern colloquialisms and incorrect prepositions was annoying. The coyness, vulgar winking etc was nauseating.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
