    What if... Lizzy, as she gets to know Darcy, finds him undeniably attractive and her impulses win out over her sense of propriety? What if... Madly in love and mutually on fire, their passion anticipates their wedding? In To Conquer Mr. Darcy, instead of avoiding Elizabeth after his ill-fated marriage proposal, Mr. Darcy follows her back to Hertfordshire to prove to her he is a changed man and worthy of her love. And little by little, Elizabeth begins to find the man she thought she despised, irresistible....

    Story

    This variation on Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice would definitely make Miss Austen blush. It contains explicit sex whereas the original novel hardly alluded to the sexual natures of Elizabeth and Darcy. Elizabeth Klett's reading is superb; she has a perfect English accent and changes her tone of voice for the different characters. If Ms. Klett is blushing as she narrates the sex scenes, the listener will not detect it in her voice! Well-read. The author, Abigail Reynolds, has come up with an interesting and fun variation on the original Pride and Prejudice.

    Liselle never meant to fall in love. When she accompanied her archaeologist husband on a dig in Mexico, she didn't expect to meet Charlie, a talented, fiercely intelligent painter who sees her in a way that her husband never has. After their brief but intense affair shocks her into living again, Liselle travels to a remote village on the west coast of Ireland. She gradually becomes acquainted with some of the locals, whose wholehearted charm and colorful stories revive her spirits and inspire her to make a documentary about their interwoven tales of romance.

    Sarah Stonich is a great writer (I have also listened to her novel These Granite Islands) and this is a very good modern romance novel. The narrator does an excellent job with the Canadian, British, and Irish accents.

    Elizabeth Bennet longs to see the view from the famous Black Rocks in Derbyshire, but her aunt and uncle refuse to allow her to climb to the highest rock outcroppings alone. Elizabeth's distress is only worsened by a chance encounter with Mr. Darcy - at least until he offers to escort her to the top. But unbeknownst to her, the Black Rocks have a very special meaning for him.

    In Nell Lillington's small Midwestern town of the 1870s, marriage is the obvious fate of a young woman of some social standing. Yet Nell is determined to elude the duties and restrictions of matrimony. So when she finds herself pregnant at the age of 17, she refuses to divulge the name of the father and even her childhood friend Martin is kept in the dark. Nell's stepfather Hiram sends Nell to live at the Poor Farm of which he is a governor, to await the day when her baby can be discreetly adopted.

    This is a suspenseful mystery with interesting characters. Elizabeth Klett does a great job narrating. I really loved the heroine, Nell, and felt for her plight. The author writes well and I'm looking forward to the sequel.

    From her hospital bed, 99-year-old Isobel Howard recalls her unexpected friendship with Cathryn, a childless, Chicago-born heiress who shunned her family, attended art school and married an Irishman with no pedigree. During the summer of 1936, the women find themselves alone in Cypress, MN, a mining town on the edge of a glacier-fed lake. Isobel is the wife of a tailor, mother of three young children and a milliner by training.

    Sarah Stonich provides a non-linear story of a woman's life. She weaves events forward and backward making for an interesting chronicle of Isobel Howard's life. Writing about love, loss, and commitment to friendship may not be considered exciting to some people but I loved this book and related to the main character through several events. The narrative kept my interest and there was even suspense near the end of the novel (no spoiler alerts will be given here!). Elizabeth Klett's skillful reading enhanced my experience of listening to Ms. Stonich's well-written book.

    It is 1850. Margaret Fuller - feminist, journalist, orator, and "the most famous woman in America" - is returning from Europe. She is bringing home with her an Italian husband and their two-year-old son. But this is not the gala return of a beloved American heroine. This is a furtive, impoverished return under a cloud of suspicion and controversy. When the ship founders in a hurricane, Fuller and her small family drown, and her friends send Henry David Thoreau to the wreck in hopes of recovering her last book manuscript.

    I've listened to many of Elizabeth's Klett's books on tape and she reads exceptionally well. Her reading of Miss Fuller was superb as usual. Miss Fuller is an interesting character and I felt very sympathetic towards her and not very charitable towards her contemporaries. I highly recommend this book.
