To Love and Cherish: A Pride and Prejudice Variation

Book 2 in this Pride and Prejudice variation trilogy, To Love and Cherish continues To Save and Protect and tells the story of Georgiana Darcy and her love interest, Lord Julian Paisley.

Georgiana Darcy is about to make her debut into London society. She has grown into a sensible, intelligent young lady, who has inherited her mother’s beauty and her father’s character. However, she is still haunted by the shadows of Ramsgate and George Wickham’s treachery and she worries how she can ever cull the swains, fops, and fortune hunters once she enters the marriage mart.

The Marquess of Dartfort, a renowned rake, has decided to marry to beget his own heir, rather than leave everything to his unworthy, shiftless cousin. But when he travels to Pemberley and sees his friend’s younger sister again, he discovers that the attraction he felt toward her two years ago run deeper than he imagined.

After Lord Paisley creates a stir at Georgiana’s ball, all the gossips cannot but speculate how the sweet debutante enchanted the marquess. Jealousy, money, and power all come into play when His Lordship’s heir learns his inheritance is at risk, past loves desire to rekindle relationships, and old foes return to Town. Georgiana finds herself not only the object of more than one gentlemen’s affections but also a sinister plot—and Lord Paisley and Darcy must conspire to keep her safe and bring justice to those that threaten their happiness.

Can their love withstand so many trials? And what will Mr. Darcy do once he learns this confirmed bachelor has fallen for his beloved sister?
