War is raging across Europe as Napoleon expands his tightening grasp. The gentry and nobility of the world are besieged by an ever changing landscape that, for the first time in history, allows the wanton crossing of class lines. Not oblivious to this fact, the nobility of England has tasked the Darcy family to uphold the ideals of English society. If you are of the gentry, and believe your wealth and standing will exonerate you from rape or child molestation, then you may see Fitzwilliam Darcy arrive upon your doorstep.In the early part of the 19th century the Nobility of England was awash with intrigue, scandal, war, and romance. On the outer fringe of these events is the Bennet family, consisting of five daughters, a stately father, and a mother determined to see her daughters married. Into this setting comes two gentlemen; the handsome Mr. Bingley, intent on enjoying society, and the imposing Mr. Darcy, intent on more serious matters. The world of the era was changing rapidly and lapses in honour amongst the French gentry had already led to an uprising within their country; which in turn led to the rise of such individuals as Napoleon. Industry, and movements in wealth amongst the common man, also threatened the ideals of the gentry, as many an individual could now move amongst the social classes in ways never before encountered.Not oblivious to these threats, the highest order had tasked the Darcy family with the responsibilities to uphold the integrity of English society. Should a nobleman or member of the gentry transgress those ideals, or come to harm the innocent,the Darcy family would deal with it accordingly.Current Timeline of booksPride & Prejudice & AssassinationsCounterpointe (Same time frame as PPA but from Elizabeth's viewpoint)A Darker DarcyTo Please a Princess… (mais)

Mr. Darcy is a member of an organization that keeps the nobles and gentry on the straight and narrow. If they mess up, Mr. Darcy is sent to clean-up how ever he must in this new retelling of Pride and Prejudice.

I enjoyed this book. I liked the combination of old familiar characters and new characters. I loved having Mr. Darcy's point-of-view as familiar scenes show up here. This was just fun! I cannot wait to read the rest of the series. ( )
