Publisher's Summary

What if two weeks after the Meryton assembly, Darcy no longer wishes to deny his increasing fascination with the bewitching Miss Elizabeth Bennet and her amazing eyes? What if he's the last man in the world she wishes to spend time with, owing to his tendency of saying the wrong thing at the wrong time? Will he persuade her to give him another chance to earn her good opinion?

    Story
    "Would love this to be expanded to full length."
    Would you listen to A Tender Moment again? Why?

    Yes and have already done so. It's a short but lovely variation, starting and ending at Sir William Lucas' party. The length of it is perfect for a lot of my journeys to work and it's also ideal as a way of settling down at bedtime.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Elizabeth Bennet (no surpises there!). She doesn't hesitate to speak her mind to Darcy when she overhears a remark he would have been advised not to make in a public place.


    Which character – as performed by Pearl Hewitt – was your favourite?

    Pearl tends to keep the voices for the characters the same for all of Pam Dixon's books and I particularly like the one she uses for Elizabeth.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, right at the very end but I won't say what it is. Spoilers!


    Any additional comments?

    I hadn't read the blurb about this short story before I started listening to it and had assumed that the Tender Moment took place after Darcy and Elizabeth had become betrothed. I was surprised when it didn't but really enjoyed the story anyway. It would be lovely for Pam Dixon to expand this into a longer length piece at some point in the future as I think there is a lot of potential in it.

    This is a short story that anyone could listen too as there is no explicit content.

    DISCLAIMER: I received my copy of this story as a gift from the narrator.

    "A wonderful moment"

    Once again, P.O. Dixon and Pearl Hewitt have made a wonderful story come to life and made the reader and listener see the scenes with Elizabeth and Darcy, and let us relive the moment where Elizabeth's tender feelings start, and see the beginning of a memorable love story. Again Pam Dixon have made a new turn for the most beloved couple in literature!

    Story
    "Sweet but under developed and rushed"

    A scene is really all you get. It shoves all the hard won personal growth of P&P into confrontation and introspection of a single night. However it is sweet and well written as many of P.O. Dixon's stories I've enjoyed.

    Story
    "An Enduring Flustered Darcy!"
    Any additional comments?

    A Tender Moment by PO Dixon is an endearing little vignette involving our Pride and Prejudice heroes Elizabeth and Darcy.
    It takes places about two weeks after the Meryton assembly at a time when Darcy is struggling with his attraction to Elizabeth's fine eyes. Darcy gets flustered around her and increasingly becomes frustrated with himself because he constantly becomes tongue-tied and says the wrong thing at the wrong time. In turn, Elizabeth is amused by him and starts to become intrigued.

    I listened to the Audible version of this story narrated by Pearl Hewitt. She did an outstanding job, providing distinct and consistent voices for Darcy and Elizabeth. Bravo!

    Story
    "Short and sweet!"

    This is a historical fiction short story about the attraction between a man and a woman and how things were done way back when! Darcy and Elizabeth : Book 3 of the series...

    Long ago life was different from the way it is now. Back then a man choose a woman and they were stuck with each other. Now the two have to decide if this is what they want forever. Darcy is pretty well off and one minute Elizabeth is thinking about the possibilities and the next she finds him appalling. Read along with Darcy and Elizabeth as they find "A Tender Moment".

    The author , P.O. Dixon did a good job on this short story! For a short story, it manages to pack a punch (so to speak). The narrator, Pearl Hewitt did a really good job delivering this story to us with her multiple voices and accents. I found this short story to be very entertaining.

    Story
    "Huh? I'm Not Sure What I Heard"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?


    This was a bit perplexing to me. I did not understand if this was an interpretation of the original, an addition to the original or had anything to do with the original at all.

    It was cute and only 37 minutes long so I didn't really "get it ".

    It looks like this may be a series of shorts. If that is the case I'd recommend reading them all at once. This didn't really make any sense to me as a standalone. This, by no means, is the fault of the author or the narrator (who was very good.) I think the fault here lies with the listener as my mind is not expanded enough to know what to do with this.

    Pristine narration with the English accent, which I love from Pearl Hewitt.

    I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my opinions and thoughts.

    Note: No worries
