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
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
Thanks to Jane Austen for creating such amazing characters! Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth are by far my most favorite literary couple. This book deliciously delved into how I would so love to imagine their relationship to be.
Other than the obvious overuse of the words "crushing" and "ardent" I thought the writing was overall pretty great! Lathan's intimate portrayal of the Darcy's marriage was one of raw passion and trust, creating a s...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
One thing I think the author does particularly well is surround us by the Regency period. The lan...more
The attention to detail in the writing is very reminiscent of the original novel. But the choic...more

I came across this book while browsing in Barnes and Noble one day, and after reading the back cover, became excited about an entire series devoted to Mr and Mrs. Darcy of Pemberley. I quickly bought this book and the next two in the series and hurried home to escape to the world of Regency England.
After 130 pages......more
And with that in mind, I actually enjoyed the book. I found...more

First of all, this book is for the hopeless romantics who want nothing more than to revel in detail in Lizz...more

Unfortunately it does not improve upon second exposure. The book reads like what it apparently is, poorly written fan fiction based, not on Jane Austen's actual wo...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
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
On the other hand though, the plot (and I use that term generously) is unbelievably dull and repetitive. Nothing much happens, unless you're interested in detailed descriptions of every room in Pemberly, the gardens at Pemberly, and a bunch of neighbors of Pemberly who appear to ha...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
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
