This story is a simple tale set into the world of Pride & Prejudice & Assassinations. It is not meant to fit into any particular part of the main story. It is meant to be a free story and to give a basic intro into the characters. I take the story and dive right in, leaving it to you to determine if you like the characters and the general premise.
It is the beginning of the 19th century and Europe is at war. Napoleon has seized power in France, and the Aristocracies of the world find themselves confronted by internal threats as well as external ones. House Darcy has been tasked to uphold the honours of the Gentry and to assist in the subtle political battle with France.
In this short story, Darcy is distraught and must focus his mental energies on anything but his wife.
House Darcy was built on a foundation of honour and integrity. It has stood for generations as a symbol of the best ideals in England. Now, during a time of war, murder, spies, and intrigue, House Darcy will rise, and it will do so upon the shoulders of a remarkable woman.
