Previously Published as Rumours & Recklessness by Nicole Clarkston

There is no one to speak up for her... except the last man in the world she would ever marry.

Fitzwilliam Darcy is desperate. He has finally fallen for a woman who ignites his desires, but a cruel trick of fate has placed her in a situation beneath his notice. It is costing all his sanity to be so near Elizabeth Bennet when he dares not claim her for his own. After the Netherfield ball, he resolves to put as much distance between himself and her as possible.

That very morning, however, Elizabeth Bennet's future is jeopardized by her father's untimely accident. With Mr Bennet unconscious and surrounded by concerned neighbors, her cousin Mr Collins presses his suit. Half the neighborhood witnesses his proposal, including the odious Mr Darcy. With everyone expecting her to make a practical choice, Elizabeth's reputation hangs in the balance... until Mr Darcy blurts out the unthinkable.

Elizabeth is not the only one displeased by Darcy's impetuous declaration. Before long, a web of gossip and misunderstanding has ensnared not only Elizabeth and Darcy, but everyone connected with them. Will they all fall to ruin? Or will they learn to combat the rumours and dare to find a reckless love together?
