    When her brother was arrested for murder, the ton shut its doors to Marietta Winters. No one would help her save him from the gallows - no one but Gabriel Noble. In exchange for taking the case, Gabriel requests three favors from the desperate young beauty, and Marietta has no other choice but to make a deal with the sinfully handsome devil. Searching for clues in the rough underbelly of London, Marietta must masquerade as a shamelessly wanton wench - much to Gabriel's delight. But Marietta swears to herself that her passionate moans are just for show.

    The different voices to the different characters. It makes it easier to follow the plot line.

    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
    Would you listen to To Conquer Mr. Darcy again? Why?

    I would listen to this audiobook over and over again because it is incredibly compelling. And utterly believable. The story Ms Reynolds tells, could very well have happened, exactly that way. She manages to twist Ms Austen's plot in a subtle way but entirely true to the great author of romance herself.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mr Darcy, because he is so much more amiable than in Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice.
    He is more human, more pliable, more compassionate, more reasonable. He sees where his faults lie and acts accordingly to it. Which gives him what he craves for: the way to Elizabeth's heart.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The first love scene in Darcy's bed. Here the two heroes are governed only by their mutual love.


    Who was the most memorable character of To Conquer Mr. Darcy and why?

    Mr Wickham. Ms Reynolds paints him as I would never have pictured him at all. As a man to whom money means everything, literally.

    For as long as she can remember, Lydia Westland has dreamed of glittering London society. Finding herself at last in England, she is determined to make the most of this opportunity. Clutching her copy of Blunders in Behaviour Corrected she sets forth to find a suitably titled husband. But what she finds instead is Rhys Rhodes, a second son with a past that is anything but glittering. To Rhys, Lydia is everything he has lost - innocence, laughter, joy - and everything he cannot have.
