Mr. Darcy Rings My Bell is a 10,000 word steamy, sensual and intimate Pride and Prejudice retelling short story.

An epidemic. A forced marriage. Can love bloom?

Miss Elizabeth Bennet’s secret beau is in London when the epidemic strikes, a rare and deadly form of smallpox. Now, due to a new law, all unmarried men and women of age must wed by the end of the year. Elizabeth, in secret mourning, now must find a husband, but can any gentleman find a place in her broken heart?

This novel features the handsome and genial Col. Fitzwilliam visiting Meryton, an overly officious Mr. Collins, a strong-willed Lady Catherine de Bourgh asserting her opinions and a slow burn love story between Mr. Da
rcy and Elizabeth Bennet.

This is a rare treat indeed, a newly published Pride and Prejudice sequel. As that is my absolute favourite trope, I am smiling like the Cheshire cat... Entering at the Darcy/Bingley wedding. Elizabeth was reflecting on a couple of rather disturbing occurrences that had happened before their courtship and it set the tone of what was to come. The wedding night was a high-light, it is a chaste read and I will try not to give too much away so I will only mention that awkwardness and embarrassment had me laughing out loud. It was done with charming sweetness though. Darcy was a bit stiff in this story and I loved how Elizabeth worked on his tactile sense to loosen him up. Elizabeth's honesty was another trait I adored. After a few days in London, shopping and going to the Opera, ODC ventured to Pemberley with Georgiana and Mrs Annesley. The the trip was rather eventful and the honeymoon at Pemberley was a rather crowded one... The guests brought everything from joy to threats and insults but there might even be a murderer in their midst. Ends with an epilogue. A thrilling read, in a light-hearted sort of way, that had me biting my nails one minute and laughing out loud the next...
