Mr. Darcy's Bite (Darcy Bites #1)
Mr. Darcy has a secret...
Darcy is acting rather oddly. After months of courting Elizabeth Bennet, no offer of marriage is forthcoming and Elizabeth is first impatient, then increasingly frightened. For there is no denying that the full moon seems to be affecting his behavior, and Elizabeth's love is going to be tested in ways she never dreamed...
Darcy has more than famil...more
I'm going to be perfectly honest: this book is pretty terrible. I had absolutely no expectations going into it. It reads like (and in fact, the author admits that it IS) fan fiction. But I loved it. Sure, some bits of it (*cough* Darcy: "Do you want to see my werewolf bite scar?" Lizzy: "Sure." Darcy: "It's on my ar ...more
I enjoyed the reimagining of Austen's characters but there was something missing in them. The language wasn't 100%. I believe if you're going to rip someone off it has to rival the original or people wrinkle their noses when they mention it. The language was right on the mark at times and at others so jarringly modern tha ...more

I have read several attempts to turn Darcy into a vampire and one into a wolf before. This is the first one that stuck so close to his original character.
Make no mistake this is not a horror or very suspenseful. It is just another brilliant sequel of the Darcy and Elizabeth story- with a twist.
That being said. Darcy is in constant danger of discovery for his secret and there are other wolves who are not as discreet. Elizabeth has a rival f ...more
The twisting of events from Netherfield to Rosings weren't off, but the explanations lacked realism for me. And once his love is proclaimed Elizabeth (in this version) is not secure enough in Darcy's love to not allow the green-eyed monster to rise up, several times, even after assurances by Darcy. This Elizabeth did not have the backbone of the original and Darcy's own confidence waffled about ...more
There were several things that really irked me: Mr. Darcy is supposed to be a werewolf, but that apparently translates into 'he becomes a big, happy puppy for two days a month'. For some reason, that still prompts the same r ...more
So Mr. Darcy is a werewolf and Lizzy has no idea. So I thought the suspense will sustain the plot. I was wrong. The lupine nature of Mr. Darcy is revealed almo ...more
This is where the drama comes in, he is a werewolf and of course she is shocked to learn the truth. Who would not be? She is not really prepared for anything like t ...more
Yes, really, in Mary Lydon Simonsen's wonderful Regency take on the paranormal, MR. DARCY'S BITE.
For months, Darcy has visited Elizabeth. To all appearances, he wants to court her, but he has yet to make a declaration. At last, Elizabeth has had enough. With the love of his life about to dismiss him forever, Darcy has no choice but to reveal he is a werewolf.
Of all the reasons Darcy would hesitate to marry her, Elizabeth never imagined this. She loves him, but does s ...more
After months of Mr. Darcy calling on Elizabeth, he still hasn’t proposed and Elizabeth is getting annoyed by the whole business. Mr. Darcy is trying to figure out how tell Elizabeth that he is a werewolf. He takes her to Pemberley to tell her. While there she learn ...more

La escritora intenta encajar todas las piezas de la novela original a partir del hecho que Darcy es un hombre lobo. Se recrea con el personaje del señor Darcy como un alpha y nos adentra en un mundo delirante de lupinos, cómo encaja su parte lobo en el mundo humano y cómo logra que Elizabeth acepte esa parte de él. Por un momento creí que Lizzy se convertiría en una mujer loba, quién sabe lo caminos que pueda tomar la ...more
I actually started this book Sat nite Oct 22. As you can see this a really fun and fast read. I picked it up for my Holloween book and could not put it down,it did not disappoint. I first have to say that after reading many of Mary's book I am truely a fan. I love her writing style. She puts fun and wimsical in her books but does so without making it wrong. This book starts out in the 1st chapter expl ...more

It goes without saying that I'm a sucker for Mr. Darcy...well, I found out that I also like him when he's a werewolf too!!! This story was just fun and I'm glad that the author didn't take the "werewolf" thing too far, otherwise it would've felt very cliche. I thought it was just right and added that little twist to the story that made it enjoyable.

Mary Lyndon does a great of creating a back story for how Darcy becomes a werewolf. I really enjoyed the relationships between Darcy, Georgina, Anne, and Elizabeth.
This original story was creative and had enough drama, and angst ...more
