What if Pride and Prejudice's Mr. Darcy doesn't meet Elizabeth Bennet until she travels to Derbyshire with her aunt and uncle? What if instead of disparaging her status, he doesn't know it? What if Darcy is immediately enthralled by her fine eyes?

How does the story of their Pride and Prejudice romance proceed then? Does she still find him arrogant? Does he fall in love at

Cloyingly sweet, no angst and the ladies giggle, guffaw, trill and titter numerous times. Darcy and Elizabeth fall in love with no problems. Then he proceeds to not only aid in their schooling and/or debuts into society but also outfits the Bennet sisters with wardrobes and lends them jewels from the Darcy collection. Soon he and Elizabeth are playing matchmakers successfully.

Meanwhile Darcy goes headlong into horse breeding and brings Mr. Bennet, the Colonel and a young man from the streets of

Enjoyable story in which Darcy completely out does himself by acting out of his normal stoic self. He actually first sees Elizabeth in Lambton and falls in love at first sight with her fine eyes. He returns the next day to the Inn and asks for an introduction. Totally out of character, but so great a start to their relationship. Darcy purses her in Lambton, rescues Lydia from Wickham and takes her to Uncle's home in London, and arrives at Netherfield to continue wooing his hearts desire - Elizab ...more

Enjoyable, but needs to be revised.

This story starts where Mr Darcy sees Elizabeth in Lambton with the Gardiners and goes back the next day wanting an introduction. The author has played with the timeline a bit (not unwelcome) to make things plausible. Even though this is not usually what we expect from Mr Darcy, it is nice to see how he could react differently in a different situation. I was a bit taken aback how Elizabeth was both welcoming yet prickly with regards to Mr Darcy, looking for mot

Do I have to give it 1 Star? I wish there was a negative Star I could give this book. Ugh! I've enjoyed some very good Pride & Prejudice adaptations such as: Steady to His Purpose by Cassandra B. Leigh and a very enjoyable trilogy An Assembly Such As This, A Fitzwilliam Darcy Novel by Pamela Aiden, which I highly recommend. But this one is just awful. There is no passion, no friction, no nothing. Having Darcy and Elizabeth randomly meeting at Pemberly while she was on vacation with her Aunt ...more

I am the author of the romance about Mr. Darcy and his Lady with the Fine Eyes. I thank all of you who have read it. I love Pride and Prejudice and so this was a pleasure to write. I hope more of you will give it a look. It is in print and on kindle.
Thank you for your comments (especially the good ones) and know that I took them to heart and corrected the proof copy with them in mind. Hence the print is an improved version. I did not receive word of the misspelling of prostrate or the unintended

This starts out decent enough but by the end it dragged. Any conflict was fleeting and quickly wrapped up. It suffered from not knowing where to end the story.

Wonderful!

A perfect new story made to sit beside the original P&P we all know and love.
I genuinely enjoyed every moment I spent reading this.

For lovers of all things Jane and happy endings

I gave it a five because occasionally I need to read something without all the unnecessary tension. This was a bit off in historical accuracy and language however I enjoyed all the positive problem solving and good will. Most Jane sequels have way too much extreme Mr Wickham acting up. This included all the characters and exactly how one felt things should have been handled if life were perfect. Good relaxing read

I thoroughly enjoyed this book because of its lack of angst. It was an easy read and left me satisfied.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book because of its lack of angst. It was a pleasant, easy read. I will definitely read any other offerings by this author.

Good story

The writing was not as good as story. If I read one more thrilling laugh or chortle I would have given it two stars. Writing immature and a little sappy but a good story.
