DNF - Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife

Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife: Pride and Prejudice Continues - Linda Berdoll

I have high tolerance for most P&P fan fiction but this one was TERRIBLE! The idea was to make it a spicy version (sort of what happens after they married) but the "author" used a very convoluted style of writing with weird words all over. For example:

Propitious fortune allowed her to descry whom the crepuscular light yielded.

WTH is that supposed to mean?

Then she used some words that I even doubted were real, which I later confirmed when I looked for "discaution" in the dictionary and didn't find it. That proved just too much for me.
