Overview


The day Fitzwilliam Darcy marries Elizabeth Bennet, he thinks his life is complete at last. Four months later, even greater joy appears on the horizon when Elizabeth finds out she is pregnant. But it is not long before outside forces intrude on their happiness. When the unthinkable happens, Elizabeth and Darcy must discover their love for each other all over again.

Romantic and insightful, Darcy's Temptation captures the original style and sardonic wit of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice while weaving its beloved characters into an exciting new tale. In a story set against the backdrop of the British abolitionist movement, family difficulties and social affairs weigh heavily on the newlyweds, and a dramatic turn of events forces Elizabeth to try to recapture Darcy’s love before the manipulative Cecelia McFarland succeeds in luring him away.

    A good P&P continuation story.

    Just finished reading this book and I enjoyed it. I recommend it for any P&P fan. For those worried about Darcy "betraying" there is nothing to worry about so chill out and enjoy...I did.

    Tempting Beyond Compare

    The author uses the original "push and pull" between Darcy and Elizabeth by putting them in a unique situation. Darcy, through an accident, has no memory of his wife and his love. Therefore, he must overcome his ancestral haughtiness and learn to love Elizabeth again, and just like in the original, no matter what he does, he is drawn to her in an unexplainable manner until he must give up all pretense and let himself love the woman he married.

    ENJOYMENT

    I really did enjoy reading Ms. Jeffers books on the side of Darcy and then this book. my only real displeasure was on the one hand the books seem to be sequels on the other hand she doesn't keep up with the story. In this book elizabeth gives birth, as does she in another book. In one book Anne and Fitzwilliam are engaged then in the next they are not and no explanation. Yet you bring in a love for Georgiana and then in the third book she is actually in love with Fitzwilliam. hard to wrap around that Ms. Jefferskeeps one story line but changes the outcome of the different characters.

    Really like this book

    Darcy's Temptation by Regina Jeffers is a sequel to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth are blissfully happy, almost to a sickening degree. They get even more enraptured with each other when Elizabeth learns she is caring Darcy's heir. However when conflicts arise Darcy is thrown into a dangerous and tense situation. Mr. Darcy is attacked and left for dead. However he recovers but he can't remember anything, not even his own name. This is an indubitably interesting twist in the story. Mr. Darcy reverts back to his old hauteur self. In fact I think he's worse than before. Regina Jeffers has given an unique twist on this tale. I was hooked from beginning to end. I could not wait to find out what happened next in the story. I also loved the sub plots that Regina Jeffers has incorporated in this book. Along with Darcy and Elizabeth's story line we also get to find out more about the characters, Georgina and Kitty. I enjoyed reading about their stories. Georgina is in love with Chadwick Harrison. Chadwick brings his own set a problems because he is an abolitionist. This brings an element of danger and suspense to the novel. Kitty is in love with Mr. Harrison. Elizabeth has brought Kitty to Pemberley in order to learn to be sophisticated. She feels unworthy of Mr. Harrison with the scandal that Lydia brought to the family. These subplots are an interesting addition to the story. I found myself enthralled with all of them, eager to see where the story line was going to take them.
    Overall this was a good book. The storyline was well written and interesting. In the beginning it was a little too sweet for my taste but I still enjoyed the story. This was a delightful continuation of Pride and Prejudice.

    Darcy's Temptation

    I read this entire book in one sitting (It's over 500 pgs). I could NOT put it down. Such an interesting P&P sequel! The book title and jacket summary are a bit misleading - for those who will read this you will understand what I mean. I read this book not realizing it continued Jeffers first novel. I hadn't read her first novel, but was still able to follow this one along without any confusion. I would highly recommend this novel for any P & P enthusiasts out there!

    I Also Recommend:

    Darcy's Temptation is a fitting end to a wonderful 2 book series.

    Darcy's Temptation (Also published as Darcy's Dream) is the second part to a 2 part story by Regina Jeffers. The first part being Darcy's Passion. In this second book, Darcy and Elizabeth are married, in love and have just been blessed with the news that they are expecting their first child. Everything seems right in the Darcy's world, until Fitzwilliam is attached on the roadside and left for dead. He is found and nursed back to health, but has no memory of who he is or where he is from.

    Darcy and Elizabeth must learn to love each other again and weather the storms that come their way as they face some of the same miscommunications and misconceptions that started their love story. Can Elizabeth help Darcy remember their life and love before Cecelia McFarland succeeds at luring him away from her for good.

    I have ready many books by Ms. Jeffers and each one is better the last. I would recommend this book to anyone that loves P&P. An excellent addition to any permanent library.

    Awful Book

    I've never liked anything this author has produced but I keep trying her books hoping she'll write something worth reading: this is not it. The characters are dreadful, the plot silly and I'm not going to waste any more time or space on this. Avoid this book if you want an enjoyable, well written and thoughtful P +P sequel.

    Best Sequel Ever

    I found this sequel to be a great NOVEL! And it is well written novel, true to the authors style. The continuation was riveting and thoughtful. She captured all the characters emotions and added new ones that fit the story beautifully. I would recommend this book to everyone looking for a little suspense. I loved the strength and vunerablity of both Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. I loved it and will read it again for years to come.

    Chill out those who think Darcy might betray Elizabeth-Read the book!!!!!

    The author offers a sustaining sequel to the P&P phenomena. She understands the original story line and recreates the tension between Darcy and Elizabeth easily. The haughtiness is there - the pride is there - the prejudice is there, and more importantly, the love is there. The characters are well defined, and, generally, the writing is strong. One can tell the writer is a former teacher because she takes time to explain some concepts within the story line to help those who are not familiar with Regency England's many "rules" of behavior to not lose track of the story line. Although I read a lot in this genre, I know many others will appreciate her thinking of those new to the reading. Jeffers might be on to something. I understand she has a Persuasion sequel coming out by the end of the year. I will be reading that one too.
