A honeymoon can last a lifetime . . .


Beginning on their wedding day, Darcy and Elizabeth are two people who are deeply in love with one another and are excited to begin their marriage.

Their courtship was tempestuous; misunderstandings and misgivings nearly tore them apart. But now that they’ve seen each other without prejudice, their trust, attraction, and delight in each other grows with every passing day. Both are inexperienced and innocent, sharing moments of shyness and boldness as they discover the kinds of intimacies that a newlywed couple shares. 

As their love story unfolds, they reveal their innermost secrets and feelings, embracing each other in a marriage filled with romance, passion, humor, and drama that will keep you spellbound.


The first installment to the Darcy Saga begins on the wedding night of Fitzwilliam and Elizabeth Darcy. The novel proceeds leisurely through the first five months of marriage.

There are a number of flashback moments to events during their engagement, but mostly these first months are covered in great detail as the two lovers grow in their love and cement their bond. This is the honeymoon phase to be sure, and the tone of the book is very romantic and blatantly mushy as I would hope most newly married couples would be!

Along the way Lizzy learns of Pemberley estate management and meets many of the citizens of Derbyshire. Christmas is celebrated with a houseful of guests, winter months are passed with a host of fun times including a Twelfth Night Masquerade Ball, and as spring thaws come the Darcys are faced with their first serious trauma and the possibility of a new life on the way.

This novel ends with a romantic interlude on Pemberley grounds that includes the revelation of the hours immediately following Darcy’s successful second proposal as the new couple take their initial steps in discovering the deep passion and frank communication that hallmark their relationship.
