Yes, another P&P variation, and it was excellent. This one has Elizabeth Bennet catching her breath in Scotland with her beloved cousin Holly, after her encounter with Lady Catherine in that 'prettyish...wilderness.' Meanwhile, Darcy's good friend, David Baugham, the Earl of Cumbermere, is playing fast and loose in London with a couple of married sisters, and Darcy encourages him to remove himself from the situation by going to his estate in Scotland. Well, yes, Darcy does have an ulterior motive; he plans to visit and hopes he might catch a glimpse of Elizabeth to gauge if he has a chance with her.

The story is beautifully written and such a pleasure to read. Did it run on too long? Well, I would have said no - I can forgive a lot when the writing is good - but then I read the second book Love Then Begins (Lord & Lady Baugham Book 2) and I would have to say that, yes, they could both have been tightened up a bit. The second book drove home the point that the newlywed couple found each other irresistible to the point that I was gritting my teeth to have to endure yet another amorous scene [not graphic, but holy smokes, enough already!!]...

But I am veering off-track here. This variation is so good that it's a pity only those who enjoy reading such stories will be inclined to read it, because it is excellent historic romance with or without the Darcy's. Lord Baugham, the H, encounters a serious, thoughtful h in Holly, a young woman who does not suffer fools gladly [and if you think she's tough on Baugham, wait til you meet her mother!!!].

A very satisfying read, which I highly recommend.

This is not a sequel to, continuation of, or variation of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, despite having Elizabeth and Darcy as characters in the story. It's more of a spin-off, as some reviewers have said, featuring as protagonists the newly-created characters Holly Tournier, Elizabeth's dear cousin on her father's side, and Lord Baugham, a very good friend of Darcy's.

This begins where P&P had almost ended. In other words, Darcy has already intervened in Lydia and Wickham's scandal, has already sent Bingley to declare himself to Jane, and his aunt Lady Catherine DeBurgh has already made that boorish visit to Longbourn to demand that Elizabeth relinquish all claim to Darcy. But in this story, Darcy does not accompany Bingley to Longbourn and thus we don't have that reconciliation and declaration of love between Elizabeth and him.

Instead, Elizabeth, in emotional turmoil, goes to Scotland to visit her beloved Aunt Arabella (Mr. Bennet's older sister) and her cousin Holly. Darcy gets wind of this and is off to Scotland too. He had encouraged his friend Baugham to spend some time at Baugham's Scottish estate, and now Darcy is off to join him there, hoping to be able to meet up with Elizabeth.

So here in Scotland Darcy and Elizabeth's romance reaches the same happy conclusion as in the original Austen novel but that's not the main thrust of this book. By Darcy and Elizabeth getting together, Baugham and Holly are thrown together. Their relationship doesn't get off to any great start, as one can tell from the title of this book. They spend more of their time at odds but don't even come close to realizing that it's an attraction to each other that they're fighting for perhaps two thirds of the book. Lord Baugham, in particular, is extremely dense and clueless.

This is well written, in the Jane Austen spirit and style, with vocabulary and behavior appropriate to the times and there's some very engaging, intelligent dialogue to enjoy. It wasn't, however, a perfect read for me. The authors did not get across any sexual tension or attraction until very late into the story, and the interactions of H and h were often very exasperating and annoying. I also found the book to be too long and drawn out. I believe it would have been better served with perhaps a paring of some 100 or so pages.

I really liked this story, though it really did drag along at times.

Holly is Elizabeth Bennett's cousin, and they are the best of friends as well. Elizabeth comes to Scotland to visit Holly and her mother after some distressing events at home. Readers familiar with Pride and Prejudice know what had transpired. But Darcy goes after her still hoping she might have feelings for him. He goes to stay with a friend of his who has an estate that just happens to be in the same neighborhood as Elizabeth's cousin.

Lord Baugham is a bit of a rake and had left London at Darcy's urging. He was getting himself tangled up with a couple of sisters who were both married. Baugham loves his Scottish estate but never bothered much in getting to know the locals. However, at Darcy's urging the two gentlemen make themselves acquainted with neighbouring ladies. Darcy is reunited with Elizabeth, and Baugham becomes acquainted with Holly.

The courtship between this last couple is tenuous at best. When they aren't shooting daggers at each other, they are entirely unsure of their own feelings. The dialogue is witty and at times quite touching. Both are afraid of what they feel.

Holly and her mother live in near poverty. Holly lost her teaching job and most likely she will not be able to get another one. She has a fair hand at drawing and hopes to earn money by drawing illustrations. Baugham hires her to catalog his library and to improve it. About the same time a young doctor is not only interested in her drawing the illustrations for his book, he is also interested in her as well.

There is an abundance of small village gossip and mean-spirited talk to muddy the waters. I must admit to getting antsy about three fourths of the way through. I wanted so much for there to be a happy ending and I wasn't entirely sure I would see one.

If you are a fan of Jane Austen I think this is a story you will enjoy.
