Summary

The methodical world of rich, proud Fitzwilliam Darcy is in chaos: A country lady of modest origins has utterly captivated him.

The knowledge that Elizabeth Bennet is an unsuitable match fails to diminish Darcy’s fascination for her, nor does his self-imposed distance from the lady hinder her ability to intrude upon his thoughts at all hours of the day. What can solve his dilemma?

When circumstances compel Darcy’s return to Hertfordshire in assistance of his friend Mr. Bingley, he must confront his unfathomable attraction to Miss Elizabeth.

In this Pride & Prejudice Regency novella, one afternoon spent in company with Miss Elizabeth Bennet is enough to make an indelible and life-altering impression upon Darcy, setting him on a rocky course toward the fulfillment of his desires. Will Darcy attain happiness, or will his ingrained pride be his downfall?

Delightful

A book in the Skirmishes and Scoundrels Series of Pride and Prejudice variations, this novella by Kelly Miller is my favorite so far.

When the Netherfield steward isn’t available to tour it with Bingley and Darcy, Mr. Bennet and Elizabeth do it in his stead. Despite his trying to ignore her fine attributes, Darcy is captivated by her. Upon his hearing of her ties to trade, however, he quickly returns to London where he remains consumed with thoughts of her. Meanwhile, Caroline and Louisa fear the developing relationship between Bingley and Jane and urge him to return.

Kelly Miller has provided a charming and engaging love story that misses nothing in the telling despite it being a short story. Being mainly from Darcy’s perspective is a plus, as he makes himself determined to win Elizabeth’s love. Thoroughly enjoyable, I definitely recommend it.

This novella is just as enjoyable with the audiobook, featuring the narration of the very talented Harry Frost. Highly recommend.

Romantic & all consuming

A consuming love is sweet, romantic, thought provoking and highly enjoyable, both as a read but also as an audiobook. Kelly has made quite a lovely and beautiful story for us to enjoy.
When Bingley comes to lease Netherfield alongside Darcy, they are met by Mr Bennet and Elizabeth and “coup de foudre” happens - an arrow of Cupid’s hits Darcy’s heart at that moment and he is a lost man. Follow their path to a future of respect and love.
Harry Frost made it into a truly lovely listen, and made several characters come alive, though none more than Darcy.

Entertaining and Enjoyable

Jane Austen's book, Pride & Prejudice, told from the first person point of view of Mr. Darcy. I found the audiobook very entertaining and enjoyed it very much. I smiled the whole time because in the original Mr. Darcy is reserved and his thoughts are hidden. Instead of finding out in the end of P&P, you can see how smitten he was almost from the beginning as Lizzy is reserved because if his off-putting initial impressions. If you ever wanted to know what Mr. Darcy was thinking...his secret thoughts during Pride & Prejudice, then this is the perfect audiobook. The story's tone, style, and dialog perfectly captures the original Jane Austen book. The narrator does an excellent job at all parts including Elizabeth. Highly Recommended.
