Publisher's Summary

This is a sweet romance inspired by Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice.

When Fitzwilliam Darcy's arranged life falls to pieces, his father, Mr. George Darcy, gives him an ultimatum: Marry by the end of the London season or risk disinheritance. Can Darcy cast aside society's frigid attitude toward marriage and find true love? Or, will his desire to honor his deceased mother's memory hold him back?

Elizabeth Bennet faces the greatest challenge of her life: Find a husband by the end of the London season or be forced to marry the heir apparent of her family home, Mr. Collins. A romantic at heart, will Elizabeth find a gentlemen to meet her high expectations? After a disastrous meeting, Darcy and Elizabeth determine not to like each other. But, the London season has only begun....

    "Disappointed"

    The performance was terrible: English accent fake, parts of the text was clearly in error in various places and times. The story though good was weak in the end.

    Story
    "What if Darcy’s father is still alive?"
    What made the experience of listening to Darcy's Ultimatum: A Pride & Prejudice Variation the most enjoyable?

    A lovely sweet story, well narrated.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Darcy's Ultimatum: A Pride & Prejudice Variation?

    When both Darcy AND Elizabeth were each given an ultimatum that affected their entire futures.


    What about Emma Lysy’s performance did you like?

    Just about all of it. I've listened to a lot of Regency era audiobooks and heard some real horrors in narration. Emma Lysy did a pretty good job in my opinion.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Darcy, marry by the end of the season or lose your inheritance!
    Elizabeth, find a husband by the end of the season or marry Mr. Collins!


    Any additional comments?

    This is the first of a series of three books so not everything is resolved by the end. Looking forward very much to the next two. I gather from the author that the second will be coming in the not too distant future.

    There's no explicit sex or even very sensual scenes in this book so I can recommend it for all audiences.

    "Ruined by the narration"

    The narration is so odd that it is distracting from the story, completely unnatural with some very perculiar pronunciations. I suspect the narrator is not English which, in itself is not a problem, rather the over the top "British" accent she is affecting. I want to enjoy the story and would love to be able to review it properly but I'm finding it impossible.

    "Lovely story ruined by awful narration."

    I have already read the Kindle version of this book and had no hesitation in getting the audible version. I am sorry to say that once again the narration has ruined a good story. The problem is once again the pronunciation. Hairtfordshire instead of Hertfordshire, Awnt instead of Aunt, and many more. This is not the first time audio books have been spoiled for me by incorrect pronunciation. I do hope there is a different narrator if the second book in the series is made into an audio book. Eilizabeth Klett or Pearl Hewitt would have been better narrators.
