Publisher's Summary

Elizabeth Bennet finds out that she will have to marry Mr. Collins. But Elizabeth doesn’t want to be forced to marry someone she does not love. Luck would have it that she met Darcy at the Netherfield Ball. Elizabeth brought up her wishes not to enter a forced marriage with Mr. Collins. Darcy then tells her his idea of how he can help by marrying her instead, due to being put under pressure by his own family to get married soon. Elizabeth doesn’t know which one would be better - a forced marriage with Mr. Collins or a marriage of convenience with Darcy. If she marries Darcy, will she ever fall in love with him? Will Darcy ever love her?  

A Convenient Darcy Marriage is a full-length clean and sweet romance novel offers a Pride and Prejudice retelling between Darcy and Elizabeth.

Who are these people?

No character in this story is recognizable, nor is the setting. This story would have sat better with me if it was about totally different characters. Pemberly house, Netherfield & Longbourne all in Hertfordshire?? Very disappointed.

A True Disappointment

The premise was promising, but poorly executed. The characters are not true to canon, and there are so many inconsistencies that I was appalled. The language was not true to the period, for example one character spoke of "my man" when a regency woman would speak of her beau. Don't waste your money.

NOOOOOO!

I've never written a really negative review of a book but this requires it. The writing is terrible! Characters receive important information and don't remember shortly thereafter. The chronology can't keep itself straight and you can't tell who is speaking or thinking. The author doesn't know the social rules of the era and all of England appears to be within a couple hour ride. None of the characters resemble the original source material at all. Oh, and the saddles have saddle horns.

Not consistent - Do not recommend

I normally enjoy a different take on a story, but this one made me angry with the various issues in character and scene development. The story line was intriguing, but the changes made the characters and story inconsistent. One minute Lydia is indicating Eliza should not judge someone before knowing them. The next conversation Lydia is the exact opposite opinion. Darcy apologizes with Eliza accepting. Then Eliza reverts as if he never apologized. One day Darcy is the proud man. The next day he seems more like Mr. Wickham. The scene starts in Netherfield then apparently is actually taking place at Longbourne. The original challenges in Pride and Prejudice were not in my mind handled as eloquently in this version. It seems this story was a more modern interpretation since all characters had easy access to one another, but it did not keep certain elements clear to make a solid transition for this variation. In short - I would not recommend this story!

Enjoyed the story but not the narrator.

I had a hard time enjoying this story because of the narrator’s voice and sound. She sounded droll, drawling, tough and haughty. Not like the characters. It can be a mix of how the story was written as well that was out of character. I think this is the first Jane Austen fan fiction book I have not enjoyed to its fullest. Before you buy listen to the sample. Reading the story by yourself might be better :) cause it was a good story and well written.

Story engaging but author not too familiar with regency era

Great story! I really enjoyed the characters (although they all behave vastly different than in the books), the story line was great and I was engaged up through the end. The author needs to brush up on the regency era however, this did detract from the story a bit. A lot of the situations simply wouldn’t have occurred (IE the main characters are often alone with no chaperone, Lydia can go to an inn with a man without destroying the reputation of the whole family and I’m not certain the author is aware the Tonne refers to London itself, not just any town).

Terrible

I like the Pride and Prejudice variations but can honestly say this was not one of them! Apart from the names used there was no resemblance to Jane Austin's story at all. The voice of the narrator was grating and she couldn't decide if she wanted to be upper class English, American or whatever. A waste of a credit.
