Mr Darcy's pride and joy - Monica Fairview

Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet are engaged at last, and Mr. Darcy is preparing to take out a special licence to get married quickly. But, just when everything seems to be going just right, he encounters opposition from an unexpected quarter. Then, when his engagement is announced – to someone else – Elizabeth, understandably, begins to doubt his sincerity.

Perhaps their love is doomed after all… 

Find out more in this third part of the Darcy Novels series, a Pride and Prejudice variation. 

My thoughts:
"Perhaps their love is doomed after all… "
The blurb does say it all. Poor Lizzy and Darcy, they do have to struggle. But that is why I like variations, they have to work a bit to get it right ;)

Darcy is simply wonderful in this one, he does not back down even though there is setback after setback. And even another engagement! But he loves her so, awwww. And do not worry about the engagement, there is something fishy going on.

And Lizzy shows her strength too. She refuses to believe anything bad about him when those setbacks comes around. She fights for him and wants to prove herself.

It's part of a series, and book 2 did end happily, but a lot can happen before you get engaged as we will see in this one. I must say though that it works excellent as a stand alone. It's the road to their happy ending. Sure things happened before, Bingley and Jane, Wickham, and more, but it still works well like this too. But hey, the road is always the fun thing so read book 2 too ;)

Conclusion:
A lovely variation where they fight for their love.

    1. Not yet, but the library has it. And I do prefer the historical ones, not modern re-tellings

  3. While I am not fond of this kind of book - variations on an original - this sounds like it is done well.

  6. I need to re-read or skim the first two to get up to speed for this one since I'm blanking on a lot of what came before. Look forward to it especially to have a pair fight for their love through the hardships.
