Summary

Elizabeth Bennet’s life is uncomplicated, until she meets a quartet of new men: the haughty but handsome Mr. Darcy, the pert-with-a-pout Mr. Bingley, the confident and captivating Mr. Wickham, and then, there is her father’s cousin, the happy man toward whom almost every female eye has turned.

Mr. Collins is hot - well, incredibly handsome in regency speak - beautiful of face, fine of figure, elegant of air, his perfect clothing and hair matching his Greek god-like form. Unfortunately, when he opens his mouth, Elizabeth wishes he were mute.

With affected servility and prideful self-conceit, he capitalizes upon his exquisite appearance and fixes on Jane Bennet as his bride.

Can Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy form an alliance to stop Jane’s suitors from issuing challenges, and will Elizabeth coax a smile from Mr. Darcy?

Best-selling regency romance author Suzan Lauder delivers a hilarious Austenesque romance suitable for all fans of Pride & Prejudice.

Fun but weird at the same time.

A Mr. Collins that is too handsome and full of himself is a bit too much ;) but well written and well narrated.

The most pompous Mr. Collins imaginable

I thought that canon Mr. Collins was one of the most annoying creatures imaginable. Well, this story made me change my opinion. Extremely attractive Mr. Collins is even worse. Thought he was funny as a self centered dandy who all the women were fighting about. He surprised me at the end though by standing up firm for his true love. My only complaint about this story is that after a while Mr. Collins preening and talking about how gorgeous he was got tiresome, but I’m sure it was the intention. The audiobook was wonderfully narrated by a narrator I hadn’t known before but I’m going to look for her other works. Highly recommended
