Separated by circumstances beyond their control, two brothers make a promise. John Bennet, the elder brother of Jane Austen's beloved Mr. Bennet is forced to leave England, but before he departs, he vows to his brother that their family will someday be united. Two hundred years later, Dr. Fitzwilliam Darcy II, takes a teaching position at a small university. He is not expecting to find a woman who captivates him as the beautiful Elizabeth Bennett does, nor does he have any idea that she is descended from a lost branch of his family. Fitzwilliam's younger brother, David, is a man scarred by his past. He has no desire for love, marriage, or family life until he meets a beautiful corporate executive from Charleston, South Carolina. She haunts his dreams and waking moments almost from the beginning of their acquaintance. As the brothers face numerous challenges, will they be able to keep the women they love? Some scenes mature.
