Pursued (Leaving Bennet Behind, #3)Pursued by Sarah Johnson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In this third part of the story the book concentrates on the story of Mary Bennet. Alexander Fitzwilliam, Viscount Primrose, who we met in volume 1 has fallen for Mary, But she is scared, scared of her feeling, and concerned about the scandalous stories that have been hinted about the Viscount. Can there be a happy ending. And what about the schemes of Lady Catherine, will they finally be discovered. Having a soft spot for Mary Bennet I knew I would enjoy this continuation of the series, as I have. And of course who could not like the characters of the two Fitzwilliam brothers.
Another well-written book in this series.
