Overview

A sexy, compelling Pride & Prejudice " what if"-perfect for fans of Death Comes to Pemberley.

The truth always has consequences......

Mr. Darcy has a dilemma. Should he tell the truth about his old nemesis George Wickham in order to protect the good citizens of Meryton from Wickham's lies and deceits? Doing so will force Darcy to reveal family secrets that he'd prefer never come to light. The alternative is keeping the man's criminal nature to himself and hoping he leaves the area before doing significant harm.

But as Wickham's attentions to Elizabeth increase, Darcy knows if he's to win the one woman he's set his heart on, he's going to have to make one of the most difficult decisions of his life. And what he ultimately does sets in motion a shocking train of events neither he nor Elizabeth could possibly have predicted.

    WORST P&P BOOK EVER WRITTEN! This book is so bad, it deserv

    WORST P&P BOOK EVER WRITTEN! This book is so bad, it deserves 0 stars, but 1 was the lowest I could give it. This author obviously knew nothing about the time period or the original characters. Who are these people in this book? Mr. Darcy was so blatantly over-sexed that he either couldn't keep either his hands off of Elizabeth for 5 seconds or his eyes off of her breasts - seriously? I never thought sex could be so boring until I read this book and that was ALL this book was about in every conversation with every character. Darcy forcing Elizabeth, who was NOT even his wife, to turn him on in a public theater until Colonel Fitzwilliam cleared his throat in disgust behind him was too much! Between Darcy being constantly in a state of denial with regard to Elizabeth's reputation, and Elizabeth letting Darcy feel her up before she even wanted him to marry her, was a 20th century morality that had nothing to do with 1813 characters. There's a whole pre-marital sex storyline, but it's so unrealistic. Would Elizabeth really tell other people that she was having sex with Darcy before he had even married her in that time period? This author just didn't get the original characters at all or comprehend the time period in the least. I really felt she had written the book about her own personal life and experiences and put Darcy and Elizabeth's name in there to sell a book.

    Not good....

    I am an avid Jane Austen variation fan, so I was excited to try a new author. To be honest, I liked the beginning, but about halfway through the book, it just kept dragging and dragging. I think the basic storyline could be good, but it needed to be edited down to about half the size. I finally got to the point I couldn't finish it.

    Overall, this struck me as a good story for a fanfiction site, but not as a published novel.

    just a romance novel

    I'm a huge Jane Austen fan and have read probably 10 or so novels based on her characters. This was by far the worst. I'm not a romance novel reader but that's really all this was. Just an excuse for a lot of detailed sex scenes. I'm not a prude or anything but there wasn't any character development or plot to the book, and I was expecting some.

    My fiancé and I went to the mall for wedding business, well, we ended up going to BN and hanging out. While he piled on the cook books, I roamed the isles, looking for a book that spoke to me. I am a very picky reader! I saw this and grabbed it instantly. We went and sat down, and I started reading this. I couldn't hear a word my honey was saying I was so absorbed in this. I hated leaving it there!!! I was at chapter 5! Too bad I am broke at the moment. Ah, c'est la vie!

    The portrayal in this book is not so typical. It's a "What if" scenario. So, we're not talking any ruined Darcy/Lizzy union fantasies you may have. Bleh. No, in this book he's up front about it without insulting her family. I also LOVED the way she portrayed Wickham, riff-raff! She paid close attention to how Elizabeth would act, she was just as witty. Darcy was more open, which deviates from P&P, but this is a "What If" scenario. I was so giddy, I was giggling like a school girl. I love the side of Darcy this Author explored!!!

    Overall, wonderful job! I am going to buy this book as soon as I have money, and then eat it up like the eager Pemberley beaver I am.

    Darcy is human and lustful

    Loved this take on p&p from mr. Darcy's perspective. More erotic than I had anticipated, but I' ll never look at mr. Darcy in the previous up tight persona again! Enjoy his humanness.

    For Pride and Prejudice sequels lovers!

    Certainly a different twist on Jane Austen's version. I enjoyed the author's perspective. Would definitely recommend it to readers who enjoy Pride and Prejudice sequels.
