Mr. & Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy: Two Shall Become One (The Darcy Saga #1)
Sharon Lathan presents Mr. & Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy, A fascinating portrait of a timeless, consuming love - and the sweetest, most romantic Jane Austen sequel.
It's Darcy and Elizabeth's wedding day, and the journey is just beginning as Jane Austen's beloved Pride and Prejudice characters embark on the greatest adventure of all: marriage and a life together filled with...more
1. Titles in Regency England were not confined to the established noble order of Dukes, Marquises, Earls, Viscounts and Barons. Masters and Mistresses, as in Fitzwilliam and Elizabeth Darcy, Master and Mistress of Pemberley, are also titles. How come? Because they are CAPITALIZED.
2. In English, certain standalone nouns are always capitalized, such as “Housekeeper”, “Butler”, “Aunt”, “Town” and “Inn”. Sample usage: “Mr. Darcy took his Butler, ...more
To give you an example, I asked some friends to pick 3 numbers so I could extract quotes at random. Here's what I found:

P&P sequels can be touchy for Austen fans. I'm not above reading one, as long as the integrity of both Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy are intact. Lose Lizzy's quick wit or Darcy's aloofness, and you've lost the characters. Reduce them to nothing more than ridiculous pillow talk and it's blasphemy to all Austen fans, purists or not. True character development and plot were non ...more
First of all, this book is based on the movie version - the Keira Knightly version!!!! I started reading and found myself very confused by the author's references to Darcy proposing with his shirt unbuttoned - or the first time he touched her hand as she left Ne ...more
I've read a few reviews that said it was too sexual, but I thought they were typical newlyweds living out the heights of their wedded bliss. They ...more
So yes, it wasnt the steam-level that annoyingly baffled me BUT the ACTUAL NUMBER OF TIMES THESE TO SEEM TO BE GOING AT IT !!! 0_O
And oooover ....
well u get the point :P (And if you still didn't let m ...more
1. Jane Austen is spinning in her grave.
2. I wish I could travel back in time and convince this woman not to write this book.
So this author states she has fallen in love with P&P after watching the Matthew McFayden version. This should've tipped me off immediately. She claims that she read the original and watched other adaptations, while this one with Kiera Knightly remained her favorite. If she really had read the book, I like to think she would've known more abou ...more
Right off the bat I have to state that I am not fond of ...more
But then, the same damn things kept happening over and over again. "Banter," flirt, have sex. The number of adverbs was astronomical. The plot didn't start until about 40 pages from the end, and then it was a thin plot at best.
I finished it, just barely.
The author wrote this originally as fanfiction. I have to say, fanfiction never needs to be novel-length. But ...more
This book seems to cover everything, it is very nearly a day by day account of their lives, the small details and intimate conversations are what makes the book. Meeting the st ...more
The attention to detail in the writing is very reminiscent of the original novel. But the choic ...more
One thing I think the author does particularly well is surround us by the Regency period. The lan ...more
This book is so pathetic that I couldn't even get through chapter 2. It's base and insulting. I wish I had read the foreword before buying (at least it was cheap!) where the author says the Keira Knightly P&P MOVIE inspired her to write this book. Seriously, though, this book is offensive in so many ways. It's not even worth the time to write t ...more

Si sarebbe potuto intitolare: E DARCY ED ELIZABETH VISSERO RICCHI, FELICI E CONTENTI (ma se l'avessero chiamato così poi non avrebbe avuto senso scrivere altre 280 pag ...more
I also read that readers found it very erotic and such, well then they have never read anything even close to ...more
This is an interesting idea, not that it hasn’t been previously explored, but almost every Austenite wonders what happened after the wedding in P & P.
In many of these sequels, the characters feel misconstrued or off-kilter; sometimes they are written comically, or kinky. This one more or less maintains the characters. And, the pace of life in the Regency, and in the country fe ...more
