A costly kiss....
A moment of madness causes Lizzy and Fitzwilliam to be compromised. They reluctantly wed, but he believes she conspired with her mother to force the union. Under those circumstances, they will never make a marriage work, so she agrees to his plan to pursue an annulment in three years. Lizzy is humiliated but determined to live her life as though Mr. Darcy isn’t part of it...and he isn’t.
Nearly four years later, an irate Fitzwilliam has come to America in search of his wayward bride. He wants to secure the annulment, so he follows her to the Colonies after she moves there when her sister marries an American. Bingley is along, and he doesn’t hide his disapproval of Fitzwilliam’s plan. When he finds Lizzy, she’s quick to agree to the annulment as planned, so they undertake a journey to the nearest city to find legal counsel.
Along the way, they are set upon by bandits. Barely escaping, Lizzy is perilously injured, and Fitzwilliam has to find them help. As Lizzy heals, he realizes he can’t imagine living without her. Will Lizzy give him a second chance, or is she determined to end their marriage that has never really begun?"
