In Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Elizabeth Bennet tells the proud Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy that she wouldn't marry him if he were the last man in the world.
But what if she never said the words? What if circumstances conspired to make her accept Darcy the first time he proposes?
What if the last man in the world she could be prevailed upon to marry...is her husband?
In this installment of Abigail Reynolds's acclaimed Pride and Prejudice Variations, Elizabeth agrees to marry Darcy against her better judgment, setting off a chain of events that nearly brings disaster to them both.
