A Pride and Prejudice Novella
Caroline Bingley’s greatest desire is to marry a wealthy gentleman with an estate. However, Pemberley and its master have been lost. While this is a most unfortunate turn of events, it’s not the worst of it, for Caroline’s brother insists that he will marry his most recent angel despite the lady’s ridiculous family.
And Caroline? Well, she must return to Netherfield and perform the part of perfect hostess for her brother and the gentleman she has lost, as well as his sister and his annoyingly direct cousin.
Colonel Richard Fitzwilliam has always found Caroline Bingley attractive. However, by focusing on her sharp tongue, he has deftly managed to avoid any entanglement that might threaten his plan not to marry.
Having been challenged to re-evaluate his opinion of Caroline, Richard has found himself unable to resist the puzzle she presents.
While Richard attempts to understand and Caroline attempts not to offend, love works its magic causing hearts to become engaged. But is love’s enchantment powerful enough for a gentleman bent on remaining single and a lady equally as determined to marry only a man with an estate to come to an understanding? Or will love find itself rejected and shivering under the stars of a winter’s night?
One Winter’s Eve is the sequel to Two Days Before Christmas and just one of Leenie Brown’s numerous Pride and Prejudice inspired stories. If you like well-written, sweet romance starring a flawed heroine in need of guidance and a determined hero bent on seeing her improve, then you’ll love this story where love rises above imperfections revealing itself as an instrument that is matchless in its ability to affect change and bring lasting joy.
So, put the kettle on, pick up your copy of One Winter’s Eve, and snuggle in for a sweet romantic read.
