Summary

One month to find a wife he can live with forever.

Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy is desperate. If he doesn’t marry within 33 days, he loses guardianship of his sister to his cantankerous aunt Lady Catherine de Bourgh. His diligent search within the ton was in vain, so he heads to the country with his mind filled with determination and his heart hoping for love.

Miss Elizabeth Bennet is desperate. Her father’s disinterest in their estate has resulted in concern for the future of her family. When circumstances become precarious, Elizabeth accepts an offer from the last man on earth she suspected would be interested in marriage to her.

Will the hero and heroine of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice find their happily-ever-after when the odds and the wickedest of enemies are against them?

Follow Elizabeth and Darcy in this novel-length regency romance as J. Dawn King takes them through a sweet adventure where their happiness comes only if they obey The Letter of the Law.

By the author of Amazon best sellers Compromised! and The Abominable Mr. Darcy.

An angsty story but oh so good

I really enjoyed this story. Well written and full of wit. I really like the narrator as well. So I highly recommend this book to a Jane Austen fan fiction lover.

This Duo is always a winner

When I saw J. Dawn King and Stevie Zimmerman it went immediately to the cart and I was not disappointed.

Ms King took the basic recipe of the original and gave it a good twist, threw in a couple of romantic changes, added some extra surprises, a few new crimes for the usual villains, a pinch of danger and adventure, shook it vigorously and served up a very tasty dish.

Top this off with narration by the fabulous Stevie Zimmerman, clear your calendar and sit back and enjoy!

Loved it!!!

Probably 3.75 Stars From Me

My sister got me started on JAFF, and I’ve read/listened to maybe 10-12 books and short stories. While I don’t have as much experience with this category of fan-fiction as others, I do have a lot of experience with Miss Austen. Her creations are so enduring they allow constant and inventive variations.
This one was more inventive than most. I’ve no idea of J. Dawn King’s experience as a writer, I can only share with you my experience as a reader.
First: the story occasionally jumps ahead as if a couple of pages were omitted. Combine that with with almost every trope of regency fiction: pirates, smugglers, guardians, kidnappings, courtship, etc, etc (minus a runaway carriage and a debutante’s debut) it ends up feeling like I’m reading a serial novel published in a Victorian paper, or a penny dreadful.
Second: the characters are similar on the surface to Austen’s, but not essentially the same. While I suppose this is what allows the plot to develop in a wildly different manner, it didn’t really allow for further character development. This is just a matter of personal taste as I prefer a character driven story, rather than a plot driven one. Mr. Bingley’s character was especially jarring, since he departed most dramatically from Austen’s. In the original P&P he is extremely good natured but not a flirt: he is Jane’s and Jane’s alone. I wish I could ask the author, what did Mr. Bingley ever do to you to deserve this treatment? [joking] In all seriousness though, pretty much every character ends as they began, with the exception of Kitty and Lydia, compliments of boarding school. The transformation in Darcy and Elizabeth’s relationship is fairly quick and has little to do with personal growth and more to do with a simple change in opinion.
So while this is not my cup of tea, others may find it fun and rewarding. Stevie Zimmerman has the right sprightliness for the tone of this book, and whatever else it may lack, it is never boring.

Loved it ❤️

I really loved it. I'm not English, but I like to "read" books on pride and prejudice and you can't really find them in Italian, it's not the first one I have read of this author and I really love how her stories do justice to the time period and the characters. Go read it!!! ❤️
