Elizabeth is forced to marry a man she does not want. Almost immediately he abandons her to live with an unknown family that does not like her. Shortly into the marriage her husband dies and his family rejects his widow, leaving Elizabeth at the mercy of her family. Elizabeth decides to live with Jane and Bingley, at which time she eventually meets Darcy.
Darcy soon falls in love with Elizabeth but must overcome many obstacles: his age (him being years younger), her widow status, her lack of connections and money, and her reluctancy to marry again. He's in for a most fearsome battle: a fight against Elizabeth's stubbornness!
Having lost faith in the institute of marriage and men in general, Elizabeth has resolved to never marry again. However, she has underestimated Darcy and his determination to make her his wife. If you are like me and love to see a 'determined Darcy' then you will love this Darcy. He will not give up until Elizabeth knows that she is worthy of love, but most importantly, his love.
This is a lovely, romantic tale of a confused, misguided Elizabeth, and a Darcy that shows her the right path to her destiny.
Finding herself widowed after six months of marriage, Elizabeth moves in with her sister, Jane Bingley. Determined to enjoy life as a widow, Elizabeth makes the most of the Season, welcoming the steady stream of callers who grace the Bingleys' sitting room. Yet, all may not be as it seems. Scarred by her past, Elizabeth does not trust easily. Realizing she harbors a secret, Darcy sets out to discover what Elizabeth is hiding, while at the same time, desiring to earn more than her trust.
Dixon does a great job of incorporating the goings on of the ton into her story. Here, we catch a glimpse of what really goes on inside gentlemen clubs, such as White's, and how widows keep their beds warm. Coincidentally, this is also where I became irritated with Elizabeth's naiveté. Not only is she inexperienced, but at times she is also immature. The way Elizabeth openly flirts with callers, and doesn't realize the import of her words or the consequences of such forward behavior, reminds me of Lydia and the regiment. A few times, it seemed as if I was reading a Regency romance with some drawing room drama taking place.
Dixon slowly builds up the heat between Darcy and Elizabeth. While there is the hot, sensual passion, their needs run much deeper than just the physical. Welding together friendship and trust, the two come to have such a deep love for each other in all aspects. Even though my heart broke for the pain in Elizabeth's past, Darcy was quick to put me at ease with his gentle solicitude. The way Darcy sets out to protect Elizabeth, regardless the cost, the trust each gains from the other, and the sense of oneness they achieve, solidify their relationship into being one that will overcome any obstacle.
With a few scoundrels, a dynamic heroine, pain, passion, and abiding love, Still a Young Man is a winner and sure to please the Pride and Prejudice variation lover.
