Wow, I am intrigued! What an original, clever premise! Lizzy is in an unusual situation, to be sure. Does her father know what he's doing? The potential for hurt feelings and misunderstandings is great. Can't wait to see how Darcy is pulled into your story. Looking forward to more!
conceited, arrogant, selfish and disdainful of the feelings of others
Well that perfectly describes this Mr. Darcy.
Hope Lizzy visits Chatsworth and the Colonel takes a liking to her. That should really put Darcy in a mood! And what of the secret admirer, has he written to her yet?
