Summary

Only the night before, she rejected him. Today, she is his intended wife.

Elizabeth Bennet proved he was no gentleman when she rejected his proposal. Darcy is now determined to flee Kent and hopefully not act like a lovelorn schoolboy the next he meets the lively Elizabeth. But when she loses her memory of his disastrous proposal and a bumbling relative believes them engaged, Darcy continues the charade with the plan to tell Elizabeth as soon as he can resolve on how to do so. And yet, she may be falling in love with him....

The very idea that she has accepted the cold, proud Darcy's proposal is absurd to Elizabeth. But why, oh why, did she? She can no longer remember what could have compelled her to accept him, but the changes she sees in him begin to touch her heart. He could be a true gentleman, after all. But when his deception is revealed, will it spell the end for them?

Darcy's Deception is a full-length sweet and clean romance novel that follows a stubborn, lovesick Darcy and a distrustful Elizabeth on their path to happily-ever-after.

Too much agonising for me

I found this focussed too much on long passages about how people felt and what they thought, some of it repetitive. The actual plot was good though and with more dialogue and less introspection this could be a much better story.
The narrator was inconsistent and pronunciation odd at times, especially for names - Marry for Mary, Arne for Anne- but this too varied.

The narrator 😍

What a sweet story! Love Darcy and Elizabeth. There were twists and turns, and it was an enjoyable listen.
But... THE NARRATOR! She was incredible. I fell in love with the characters repeatedly.
Can’t wait to hear more from Alyssa Rogge. She’ll be one to watch!

Very Well Written Variation!

This Pride and Prejudice variation begins the morning after Darcy's failed Hunsford proposal, as he stalks the lane waiting to give Lizzy the letter he's written. While he walks he comes across a carriage accident, and Lizzy injured in the accident. Darcy carries her home and discovers Lizzy has lost all memory of the previous night, including his proposal and her refusal. When a bumbling Mr. Collins assumes that they're engaged, Darcy doesn't correct him, and everyone around them is convinced they're engaged, except Lizzy herself.

I really enjoyed this variation! Darcy was sweet and caring from the beginning, taking care of Lizzy and wooing her as he should have from the start His letters! *sigh* I had to rewind them twice. The romance between the two was really well written. There's also a good villain in Lady Catherine, and even Anne plays her part to keep the couple apart. The whole book was really fun.

The narration was really well done, with the perfect voice and accent for the story. It pulled me right in, it was a great performance. I requested a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.

Adaptation of Classic Pride & Prejudice!

Darcy's Deception (A Pride & Prejudice Variation) is a intriguing twist of a Jane Austen's Classic novel Pride and Prejudice. Witty moments seep through the pages. Character's are compelling and well-suited for the era. The writing style is organic and this author creates this season's new tale spinoff. A entertaining listen.


Narator Alyssa Rogge was a perfect choice to narrate this audio. Her british accent fit the narrative exquisitely. Her inflection fit the characters and it was easily distinctable between the characters. Her tone and pace flows through smoothly and flawlessly. I absolutely loved her performance and would definitely listen to her again.

A Delightful P&P Variation

I was very concerned downloading this book that I might not like it - I mean, how dare you paint Darcy as anything other than honorable? But this was a beautiful rendition of an alternate ending to Pride and Prejudice that is done in a tasteful way. It is wondrous to see Lydia as anything other than horrendously annoying. I absolutely loved this book and if you love P&P then you will too! The narrator did a good job - I think the only way I could have enjoyed this audiobook more would be if a male had done the male character narration. #AudiobookObsessionReviewer

A sweet story

I think that even Ms. Austin would be partial to this variation . This was very engaging and calming after stressful day . I love the alternate path my favorite characters take to reach their HEA . 💖

Good

This was pretty good. It was funny to see how things might have been different had this happened. The narration was pretty some of the voices sounded like kids or the same but I understand there are a lot of characters in this story.
