Concerned for his sister, Fitzwilliam Darcy does not arrive in Hertfordshire until the day of the Netherfield Ball. When he attempts to find some solitude, he meets Elizabeth Bennet in the most unlikely of places. Elizabeth Bennet decides the best way to avoid her persistent cousin is to go into hiding, at least for a few minutes. She is surprised when her hiding place is almost immediately invaded, but relieved when the intruder is not her cousin. This lighthearted variation on Pride and Prejudice explores the possibilities that could have resulted from a very different first encounter between Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet.

When Charlotte Lucas married Mr. Collins in Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, she believed herself to be fortunate indeed. Her nuptials gained her a comfortable home and financial security. If she acquired these things at the expense of true love, it did not matter one whit. To Charlotte, love in marriage was nothing more than a pleasant coincidence. As the years of her marriage dragged by, Charlotte began to question her idea of love as she suffered continual embarrassment at her husband's simpering and fawning manners. When Mr. Collins dies, finally relieving everyone of his tedious conversation, she must work feverishly to secure her income and home. She gives no further thought to the possibility of love until her flighty sister Maria begs her to act as her chaperone in place of their ailing parents. Hoping to prevent Maria from also entering an unhappy union, Charlotte agrees, and they are quickly thrust into a world of country dances, dinner parties, and marriageable gentlemen. While attending the Westerham winter ball, Maria dances with her bumbling friend Mr. Card, while Charlotte has a flirtatious conversation with Mr. Edgington, a relative of her proprietress Lady Catherine de Bourgh. Charlotte and Maria also become acquainted with Mr. Westfield, a polished American gentleman, and his chaperone, the somewhat disheveled Mr. Basford. Charlotte experiences both hope and dread when she observes the tender glances that pass between Maria and Mr. Westfield. But when an unprincipled gentleman compromises Charlotte's reputation, her romantic thoughts disappear at the prospect of losing her independence. As she struggles to extricate herself from her slander, her situation reveals both the nature of each gentleman and of true love.
