Summary

Fitzwilliam Darcy is on the run...with a baby!

When an emergency summons Mr. Darcy back to London during the Netherfield ball, he discovers a newborn in his study along with a note. Now, he must guard a secret that could shatter his family and put the child in danger. But that isn’t his biggest challenge. He must find a wife - a woman he can trust with his charge and with his heart.

Elizabeth Bennet’s prospects for a marriage based on love are taken away from her when her father makes a deal with Mr. Darcy, a man she despises. When she learns the identity of the baby and the true identity of the man she married, will their marriage of convenience develop into a love for the ages?

Together, they face slander, intrigue, family pressure, and prison. Will their marriage survive? Will the baby thrive? Or, will forces much larger than themselves destroy everything Darcy and Elizabeth hope for? This regency variation of Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice by best-selling author J Dawn King is appropriate for all ages.

Wonderful!!!!!

Loved this version of P&P. Full of surprises, with some truly dastardly villains. Loved the romance as well. There were a few chaste kisses and innocent hints of marital intimacy so suitable for all ages.

My new favorite

I've been an admirer of J. Dawn King talent for a long time and I've read all her books. This one is my new favorite, the plot, well developed characters, especially villains and original characters were superb. And of course Darcy and Elizabeth the way I love them most, thrown together into adversity which makes them shine. No long drawn misunderstandings, ODC quickly managed to overcome their previous opinions and were united in protecting the baby they had been entrusted with to their detriment. I loved this Elizabeth, strong, smart, fearless in protecting her loved ones. The confrontation in the Matlock House was priceless, Elizabeth used her intelligence and courage to prevail in a situation which had seemed hopeless. And love and devotion between Darcy and Elizabeth is palpable.

Steve Zimmerman added new levels to this book with her brilliant narration. I could feel the emotions of the characters in every scene. As always her portrayal of each personality brings them to life. Wickham's bravado and flippancy, Lord Matlock and Lady Catherine's arrogance and self importance were played to perfection. The interactions of Darcy and Elizabeth made me feel their initial anger and sadness changing to deep emotional bond.
Another winner from this author and narrator duo. Highly recommended.

Rather immature

This was way over rated in my opinion. The writing was sophomoric and melodramatic. The situations felt contrived. The thing that grated on me the most is that the author decided that Elizabeth would call Mr. Darcy the name "Will". He is not a Will by any stretch of the imagination and I cringed every time he was referred to in that way. I am returning this book.

Great Story!

S.Z. is the best, my truth, P&P Variation Narrator. I've listened to almost all of them. This story, tho NOT read, is one of the best in quite a few years, add the narrator & it should receive Gold stars!

Wonderful

The book was a very fast read but I did enjoy it immensely. I am glad Elizabeth was able to recognize right away how wrong she had been in her judgment of Mr Darcy, Mr Bennet and Mr Wickham. I also enjoyed the way Mr Darcy was able to swallow his pride and get rid of his arrogance and aloofness and was able to meet his new wife's forthrightness with his own truthfulness so they could build a solid foundation for their marriage and be able to battle the the false accusations and preservere against the injustice. I am glad Mr Wickham, Hugh Fitzwilliam, Earl of Matlock and Lady Catherine got their just desserts.

I know I have stated it before, Stevie Zimmerman is one of my favorite narrators. Her work on this book proves why. She was extraordinary.
