Fitzwilliam Darcy knows only one thing… he loves Elizabeth Bennet. No amount of reason can squelch the knowledge that he loves her. He can do nothing else. He loves her and wants to send her a message of his declaration. First the Valentine [handmade], then a poem he had written himself, next a box of assorted confectionery treats to delight his lady love, and finally a bouquet of posies… using the language of flowers to convey a message to her.
This was so cute, perhaps a bit sappy; however, I am looking at my own Valentines [although my hubby didn’t hand make it], he did pick it out himself. I also have a bouquet of flowers that smile cheerfully at me. So, I suppose I am in a ‘love scented atmosphere’ and am touched by the attentions that Bingley and Darcy went through to show their love to their ladies of choice. Bingley’s poem was cute, but Darcy’s poem just about did me in. Elizabeth was touched and her intelligence helped her reason out and realize that she needed to rethink her affections and feelings regarding Mr. Darcy. For, who else could have given her such gifts if not him?
Mr. Darcy went to Kent for Easter and his meeting with Elizabeth went very different this time around. It was spectacular. The last chapter acted as an epilogue and gave us a glimpse of years later. How cute. I just loved this little short. If you have a heart to be touched… it will be.
Darcy -- the Secret Lover -- surreptitiously crafts a token for his Lady Love.
These two 19th century gentlemen must make trips to the Milliners (for shades of pink); a sweet shop (for sugary confections) and finish with a visit to a friend skilled in the language of flowers (for hidden messages).
They also create a fad among their friends for gifting Valentines -- and create envy among the ladies.

This is a sweet, angst-free love story that I enjoyed very much.
Without Valentine's Day, February would be... well, January. ~Jim Gaffigan
It had some really great laugh out loud moments and the story moved well. I found that I quite liked this Darcy and Bingley, especially Bingley (who I find to be a bit of a spineless jellyfish in most stories). In this one he is still genial but has more strength and conviction.
Not a lot of angst or drama, and no "villains"... just everyone's own preconceived notions, pride and prejudices to over come, but it was still enjoyable. The connections to the other parts of the story make sense, and the conversations between characters are natural... both I terms of what they are saying as well as keeping to their characters. This story has been well written, well thought out, and with a great flow.
I would recommend this if you have an hour and a half (give or take) and are looking for a fun read.
