Synopsis: “Love at first sight” is a laughable concept in the considered opinion of Colonel Richard Fitzwilliam and never occurs in real life—certainly not in the life of an experienced soldier. In fact, until he observes the smitten nature of his cousin Fitzwilliam Darcy, he doubts that fervent love exists. Marriage, after all, is a matter of money, social standing, and property.
But his cousin becomes besotted with Elizabeth Bennet, the lovely but penniless daughter of a Hertfordshire gentleman, and is determined to make her his wife. Unfortunately, emotions overwhelm his good judgment, and he botches an offer of marriage.

When the colonel attempts to untangle the mess, his own world becomes almost as chaotic when he makes the accidental acquaintance of Miss Jane Bennet, Elizabeth’s beloved eldest sister. Can emotions previously deemed impossible truly seize such a level-headed person as himself? And can impassible obstacles deter a man of true determination?

My Review: Before you go into this book just know that this story is mainly about Colonel Fitzwilliam and Jane Bennet's love story. Don't worry there is a love story for Darcy and Lizzy but it's more a side story than the main focus. I do enjoy a good Colonel/Jane story since I don't think Bingley is a good marriage prospect for Jane at all. I really loved Richard in this story as he knew what he wanted and he went after it, unlike Bingley who let himself be talked out of being with Jane. If you truly love somebody nobody is going to talk you out of being with that person no matter what unless there are extreme circumstances that prevent it. Once Bingley met Elaine he got over Jane fast enough. 

I really enjoyed this book and I guarantee that if you like a Jane and the Colonel romance you are going to love this book.

Rating: 4 ½ stars
