Synopsis: A sparkling tale of Regency England, a forced marriage, and two mages who must work together to save the Kingdom.

Elizabeth Bennet is stunned when the Royal Mages come to her peaceful country home of Longbourn to take her away. She is even more bewildered when she is commanded to marry a powerful mage by the name of Fitzwilliam Darcy. She has always dreamed of marrying for love, and an arranged marriage with an arrogant stranger was never part of her plans.

But Darcy and Elizabeth have no choice in the matter. Uniting their two forms of magic is essential for the Kingdom to defeat Napoleon’s mages. Darcy and Elizabeth may dislike each other on sight, but they must overcome their differences and find common ground before it is too late. Fortunately, it is not long before the sparks begin to fly between them.

My Review: This book is Pride and Prejudice with magic! Elizabeth "luckily" gets chosen to form a Janus bond with Darcy for the good of England which forces them to get married. Both are resentful, Elizabeth because she wanted to marry for love and Darcy because he had already proposed to Anne. There is no Wickham in this book which is a refreshing change in JAFF fiction but we still have to deal with a pissy Lady Catherine and newcomer Lady Alice. This book does deal with the war with France and does have the French attack the Guild but I don't see them as a threat in the book. They are basically just a background subplot. 

I did enjoy this book but I just wish it was a little longer and not as rushed. That being said this is a great book to read if you want some magic in Pride and Prejudice. 

Rating: 4 stars
