Summary

Packaged in handsome and affordable trade editions, Clydesdale Classics is a new series of essential literary works. From the musings of literary geniuses like Mark Twain in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn to the striking personal narrative of Harriet Jacobs in Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, this new series is a comprehensive collection of our literary history through the words of the exceptional few.Originally published in 1813, the novel Pride and Prejudice has been a favorite of literature readers for more than two centuries. Set in turn-of-the-nineteenth-century England, the story largely takes place in the beautiful London countryside. The narrative centers on Elizabeth Bennet, one of the five unmarried daughters of a high-class country gentleman, as she struggles with common moral and social issues for young women associated with England’s landed gentry class. At a lavish ball, Elizabeth’s eldest and most beautiful sister, Jane, is introduced to the rich, eligible, new resident, Mr. Bingley, who quickly takes a liking to her. All the while, Mr. Bingley’s seemingly arrogant friend Darcy refuses to dance with Elizabeth, despite her immeasurable wit and charm. But, like all great love stories, things change.Dubbed the number one romantic book by Time magazine, its influence is still felt today through various literary and cinematic adaptations. Pride and Prejudice tells of a young girl who navigates her way through high society, family conflict, and love with spirit and humor.

Alas, she knows all enchantments must end when the clock strikes midnight.

    When girl meets Duke, their marriage breaks all the rules… 
    Since his return from war, the Duke of Ashbury’s to-do list has been short and anything but sweet: brooding, glowering, menacing London ne’er-do-wells by night. Now there’s a new item on the list. He needs an heir—which means he needs a wife. When Emma Gladstone, a vicar’s daughter turned seamstress, appears in his library wearing a wedding gown, he decides on the spot that she’ll do. 
    His terms are simple: 
    - They will be husband and wife by night only. 
    - No lights, no kissing.  
    - No questions about his battle scars.  
    - Last, and most importantly… Once she’s pregnant with his heir, they need never share a bed again. 
    But Emma is no pushover. She has a few rules of her own: 
    - They will have dinner together every evening.  
    - With conversation. 
    - And unlimited teasing. 
    - Last, and most importantly… Once she’s seen the man beneath the scars, he can’t stop her from falling in love…
