Mr.Darcy's Challenge - Monica Fairview

In this humorous Pride and Prejudice Variation, Mr. Darcy is determined to win Elizabeth Bennet's hand in spite of her rejection and he has a strategy worked out. He will rescue Lydia Bennet from Wickham and will return to Longbourn to convince Elizabeth to marry him. But when a chance encounter prompts Darcy to propose once again to Elizabeth before he has rescued Lydia, his plans go horribly wrong. 

Broken hearted, disillusioned and bitterly regretting his impulsive action, Darcy sees no point in assisting Miss Bennet. After all, rescuing Lydia might save Elizabeth’s reputation, but why should he care when they have no future together? His code of gentlemanly conduct, however, demands that he fulfill the terms of his promise to her. Once again, Darcy finds himself faced with impossible choices: helping Elizabeth when she is certain to marry someone else, or holding onto his dignity by turning his back on the Bennets once and for all. 

Pride and love are at loggerheads as he struggles to choose between his mind … and his heart. 

Volume Two of The Darcy Novels continues the story began in Mr. Darcy's Pledge but can be read as an independent book as well.

My thoughts:
Oh Darcy you are such a fool *smacks Darcy over the head*. At least you got over the woman you thought about in book 1...not Lizzy. Yes he aches for her but he wants to marry and is such a fool, a gentleman fool. Sighs. But do NOT worry, of course it will end happily. He is just too nice.

This book sure takes its share of twists and turns and turns the real book on its head. Darcy tries to find Lydia. He gets to show how nice he really is to Lizzy. Lydia's ending was great for once. It fit. Even if she is a silly silly girl.

We saw nothing of Mary and Kitty, or Jane either in a way. This is Darcy's book after all. It's all about his longing and fight to make her his.

And he succeeds! Huzzah! And then they live happily ever after. Well except for everyone matched up, but they will be ok ;)

Conclusion:
A nice little series :) Darcy being Darcy and simply wonderful.

  5. I love Darcy POV books! He was such a complicated character so it's always a good thing when his POV is explored.

  8. Thank you for the lovely review, Blodeuedd!! I agree completely about Darcy!! But he does have a happy ending and he is very kind, so it does work out somehow ;) There will be another in the series in 2015.
