“The very first moment I beheld him, my heart was irrevocably gone.”
Indeed. Another Jane Austen quote that warms my heart. It has also inspired a new book bundle release plus a new story.
The new book bundle is titled, First There is Love. It is a first in series limited edition featuring A Lasting Love Affair (A Darcy and Elizabeth Love Affair, Book One), Lady Elizabeth (Pride and Prejudice Everything Will Change Book One), and A Tender Moment – three of my all-time favorite book babies.
While selecting the stories for the collection, I couldn’t help but think of the moment I first beheld my favorite book hero, Mr. Darcy, and the moment my heart was irrevocably gone. To know me is to know my first exposure to Pride and Prejudice was the 2005 film. What a life-changing event that proved to be.
As for my real-life Mr. Darcy, I cannot fix on the hour, but I will always remember the spot, the look, and the words which laid the foundation. I first beheld him when I was twelve. I began dating him at age seventeen. We married eight years later on June 30th.
Happy Anniversary to me!
What say you? Be it Jane Austen’s beloved hero or your very own, when did you first fall in love with Mr. Darcy?
