This modern variation veers little from the outline of canon. However, the author needs to proofread her text. (Yes, I know she is a physician, but this must have been a hurry up and get it done book as many errata are glaring at the reader.)

My second comment has to do with a warning: this is for MA only. There are at least three graphic descriptions of sex scenes and one involves spanking.

Darcy and Bingley come to town but this time it is as Bingley's law firm is considering absorbing the Benn

A modern re-telling of part of Pride and Prejudice. I admit to not liking the two main characters but I did finish the book. All the mature content was skipped as it's not something that I have an interest in reading.

This is a modern Pride and Prejudice variation. It is a very mature story with so many name brands mentioned, you would almost think they are sponsors. Darcy and Elizabeth follow the cannon plot with the exception that that can't keep their hands of each other. I did enjoy the story and the modern representation of the characters.

I enjoyed it. Chapters are a little short but it's well written. I like the changes made from canon. I look forward to the sequel.

I was actually surprised by how much I enjoyed this story. As an all time lover of Jane Austen and romance novels, I love this funfic story, and the steamy scenes were oh so STEAMY!!!
Dr. RS actually exceeded my expectations by putting Mr Darcy into his very alpha self.

Big recommendation!

50 shade of darcy

It turned into 50 shades of grey somewhere around the middle. It wasn't bad but it wasn't what i was expecting out of a pride and prejudice variation. It's well written and the plot is interesting.

One of the best modern P&P stories I've read, it has drama, passion, cliffhangers, seriously once you start reading you can't stop :). I recommend this story very much.

Good story, may not be for everyone but If you remember it's a variation then it's cool. Looking forward to the sequel

Refreshing variation

Great passionate, refreshing, modern pride and prejudice variation. It has some of original similar situations but less of the characters, which is better. Just had some timelines that were wrong.
