Publisher's Summary

Jane Austen started it, and two hundred years later we keep coming back for more.

Darcy was not looking to fall in love. He thought he had it all: wealth, privilege, and ardent passion for his sport. Then he meets Miss Elizabeth Bennet, and soon thereafter he knows that she is the woman with whom he is destined to spend his life.

Having suffered a traumatic loss, Elizabeth knows the pain of heartache. She is determined to shield herself against forming strong attachments so she might never feel that way again. Then Mr. Darcy comes along, and he has a way of melting all her defenses.

A lasting love affair

Any additional comments?


I enjoyed this novella, and the different scenario presented. Ms. Dixon admitted to using many of her favorite P&P passages, and it was interesting to see them in totally different settings.
It was a very nicely written, clean romance between Darcy and Elizabeth. I enjoyed this Darcy who would not be denied.

Loved it

Another great story by P.O. Dixon. I also love the narrator who does a great job of different voices for different characters. I highly recommend this book to a Jane Austen fan fiction lover.

A patient Darcy wins Elizabeth's heart

Elizabeth Bennet’s father has been estranged from his sister for many years, since he married a woman so beneath him in status. At last, they have managed to smooth out some of their differences. A widowed and childless Lady Vanessa offers to make Elizabeth her heir. Elizabeth agrees and leaves her beloved Longbourn and family to live with her aunt. Lady Vanessa has already selected a young man for Elizabeth to marry. When Darcy shows up, he finds he has some competition for the young woman’s attention. Despite Elizabeth’s impertinence toward him, Darcy is smitten. Elizabeth, however, is still recovering from a great loss in her life, and she’s protecting her heart from further pain. A love triangle develops, and Elizabeth enjoys the attentions of each man as they court her. Darcy is kind and understanding and only occasionally shows his proud and arrogant side. He knows what he wants, and he’s prepared to be patient in order to get it . . . or rather her. This is a delightful love triangle spiced with a touch of Lady Catherine’s hauteur, especially after Darcy informs her that he won’t be marrying his cousin, Anne. Lady Catherine is well matched against Lady Vanessa. Wickham also makes a displeasing and unwelcome appearance, and, yes, he’s up to his usual devilry. I enjoyed this audiobook, and I thank the author for sharing it with me. She’s among the top Austen authors who write sequels and variations on the original. The narration is well performed and easy to listen to, bringing the characters to life. I received this audiobook for free from the author. I appreciate her generosity, but it had no effect upon my review. All opinions expressed in this review reflect my honest reactions to listening to this audiobook.

Very entertaining

I've had a few long road trips for work so I finally had some time to listen to this story. I live listening to the different voices the narrator uses and listening to the oh so nice British accent.
