There is a fine line between love and hate...<br /><br />No one understands this better than our dear couple Mr. Darcy and Lizzy in this variation of Pride and Prejudice.<br /><br />On a visit to her aunt and uncle in London, Jane Bennet meets and falls in love with Mr. Bingley. They make the trip to Longbourn to receive Mr. Bennet's approval of the match bringing along with them Mr. Bingley's proud friend, Mr. Darcy. Elizabeth immediately dislikes him as he looks at everything surrounding Longbourn with distaste. Even worse, he seems set on separating his friend from her lovely sister.<br /><br />Elizabeth will not have it. She declares to Mr. Darcy that he has found a foe in her and Mr. Darcy soon finds she is a worthy foe at that. Through their constant bickering and trying to thwart one another's plans, they find that they actually like fighting with one another. Elizabeth with her passion-filled eyes and Mr. Darcy with his straight shoulders and proud chin. But fighting with one another is not a foundation for a serious relationship.<br /><br />Each must determine if they are willing to remove the barriers their situations and life experiences have placed in their paths. Only then can they allow the other into their lives and hearts for good.<br /><br />This Pride and Prejudice variation is suitable for all ages.

<b>[THIS KINDLE BOOK QUALITY IS GUARANTEED: It has been expanded with a bonus feature.]</b><br /><br />The sonnets is the title of a collection of 154 sonnets by William Shakespeare, which covers themes such as the passage of time, love, beauty and mortality. The first 126 sonnets are addressed to a young man; the last 28 to a woman.<br />The sonnets were first published in a 1609 quarto with the full stylised title: SHAKE-SPEARES SONNETS. Never before Imprinted. (although sonnets 138 and 144 had previously been published in the 1599 miscellany The Passionate Pilgrim). The quarto ends with "A Lover's Complaint", a narrative poem of 47 seven-line stanzas written in rhyme royal – though some scholars have argued convincingly against Shakespeare's authorship of the poem.<br />The sonnets to the young man express overwhelming, obsessional love. The main issue of debate has always been whether it remained platonic or became physical. The first 17 poems, traditionally called the procreation sonnets, are addressed to the young man urging him to marry and have children in order to immortalize his beauty by passing it to the next generation. Other sonnets express the speaker's love for the young man; brood upon loneliness, death, and the transience of life; seem to criticise the young man for preferring a rival poet; express ambiguous feelings for the speaker's mistress; and pun on the poet's name. The final two sonnets are allegorical treatments of Greek epigrams referring to the "little love-god" Cupid.<br /><br />BONUS :<br /><br />• The sonnets Audiobook.<br />• 10 Illustrations about William Shakespeare.

<b>[THIS KINDLE BOOK QUALITY IS GUARANTEED: It has been expanded with a bonus feature.]</b><br /><br />The Merchant of Venice is a 16th century play by William Shakespeare in which a merchant in Venice must default on a large loan provided by an abused Jewish moneylender. It is believed to have been written between 1596 and 1599. Though classified as a comedy in the First Folio and sharing certain aspects with Shakespeare's other romantic comedies, the play is perhaps most remembered for its dramatic scenes, and is best known for Shylock and the famous "Hath not a Jew eyes?" speech. Also notable is Portia's speech about "the quality of mercy". Critic Harold Bloom listed it among Shakespeare's great comedies.<br /><br />BONUS :<br /><br />• The Merchant of Venice Audiobook.<br />• 10 Illustrations about William Shakespeare.
