Thorne Grey, the Earl of Kimpton, wants his wife, craves his wife. When she threatens to leave, he panics and offers to pay her to stay with him. He’s bought himself two weeks and prays it’s enough time to find her missing brother and prove he’s not the scoundrel she believes.

Neither is able to ignore the explosive passion between them, but in their search for her brother, they encounter a threat that could not only destroy their relationship, but their very lives.

Our down-and-out manly trio—Fitzwilliam Darcy, Charles Bingley and Colonel Fitzwilliam—are slumming it in Sherwood Forest, disguised as laborers, and enjoying many a rough and tumble. Next, it’s the ladies’ turn, where Elizabeth Bennet takes on Caroline Bingley in a petticoat duel that Longbourn will never forget. Meanwhile, Colonel Fitzwilliam and his new sidekick embark on a journey to Lisbon, Portugal, to search for something he has lost.
