These Three Remain
One of the most beloved romantic heroes in all of literature, Fitzwilliam Darcy remains an enigma even to Jane Austen's most devoted fans. No longer. With this concluding volume in the Fitzwilliam...more

I think a lot of men will find Mr. Darcy's emotional obsession with Elizabeth to be a little heavy-handed (consider Dave Barry's definitive treatise on the topic of male/female relati ...more

Original review August 2012: "To her, he was the last man; for him, she seemed the only woman. Could fate have fashioned a more perfect twist or held him in any more derision?" -pg 148.

Enjoyed again immensely. This time appreciated the familial relationships, particularly Darcy & Georgiana. Reread the real thing at same time and felt, again, that all in all, Aidan did a pretty fair job of recreating.
This book takes Darcy from Elizabeth's rejection to just beyond the end of "Pride & Prejudice."
The thing I liked the very best about this book is that Darcy's biggest problem with what Elizabeth said about him at the rejection was that he did not behaving in ...more

Enters with the trip to Rosings at Easter and it took me a while to get engaged in this last instalment as the pace dropped considerably. After the initial meeting between ODC, it took 60-70 pages before they meet again. The pages was filled with Darcy's reflections and I must say that as the previous book contained little else, I was overly ripe for some ODC interaction.
The disastrous Hunsford proposal came and went, without any ...more
If you want to write trashy romance novels, then you just go right ahead and write some trashy romance novels. No one will judge. Promise, there is plenty of readership to support that genre. But whatever you do, please, PLEASE, keep that stuff away from my Jane Austen. I mean, I gave you a chance, the first book in the series was decent enough to make me want to read the second. The second book was aweful...really, just plain usel ...more

I love watching Darcy change. He really was oblivious to his flaws and when Elizabeth abruptly brought them to his attention he pridefully rejects what she says. It takes time and advice from others who love him before he is completely humbled and starts working on himself.
Also can somebody start a petition for this author to write another book (or three) about Georgiana Darcy and Dy Brougham? I ship them SO hard. Dy is a dream. One of my all time favorite tropes i ...more
The insights into Darcy's thoughts and feelings around both proposals was perfection. His valet ending up with Elizabeth's maid was a bit much, but I'll take it. Really enjoyable - thank you Pamela Aidan for filling this gap! ...more
I love this series, I love this ending, I love seeing Pride and Prejudice from Darcy’s point of view, I just love these books! So good! Read them if you want Darcy’s side of the story of Pride and Prejudice.
