As part of the “Historical Hookups” tour, me and my fellow Foerever Yours authors were asked to each write an original 800 word scene with the same criteria:
Hair color: Reddish-brown hair, the color of mahogany
Social status: Dishonored… heiress
Family situation: It’s complicated
Hero’s archétype: Rake
Scene takes place in: The cloak room

Welcome to my stop on the Pride and Prejudice 200th Anniversary Party Hop!
To celebrate Pride & Prejudice’s 200th birthday, I thought I’d talk about my favorite Pride & Prejudice moments. I say moments, because while I love the book, it’s the 1995 A&E/BBC production that I watch almost obsessively. There’s just something about Colin Firth in tight white pants that sings to my soul. Ladies, you know what I’m saying.
So, without further ado, my top three Pride & Prejudice moments.
1. Elizabeth and Darcy meet. Mr. Darcy does not make a great first impression. He’s like that hot guy in high school that was too cool to give you the time of day. I’d probably weep with self-pity if anyone rejected me like Darcy rejects Elizabeth in that scene. But Elizabeth just laughs, which is what makes her one of the most awesome heroines evah.
2. Skipping ahead quite a bit—Darcy at Pemberley. We get to see Darcy in a far more sympathetic light when Elizabeth visits him at his ridiculously large estate. The maid raves about him, first of all, and then there’s the house itself. My God, what woman wouldn’t swoon after seeing that? And there’s “the look.” Just try to walk away now, ladies.
3. The wedding. I’m a sucker for that sweet kiss at the end. This is probably my most favorite part of the whole movie—the hard-won happily ever after. Swoon!
