Publisher's Summary

What if...Elizabeth Bennet outranked Fitzwilliam Darcy? The familiar love story featuring two of the most celebrated characters in our history comes to life again in a “what if” story with a twist.

Elizabeth and Darcy are in love and plan to marry, until Elizabeth comes face-to-face with Lady Catherine De Bourgh. Although standing strong during the worst confrontation of Miss Elizabeth’s life, she soon realizes that she cannot marry Mr. Darcy and refuses him. Futile attempts by Mr. Darcy to win her back fail, until he finds out the most astonishing information about Elizabeth Bennet.

Elizabeth more stubborn than usual

I found a Royal Disposition a little maddening. Elizabeth has concerns regarding a marriage to Fitzwilliam Darcy. She is afraid her low family will hurt the Darcy family’s status in society. She breaks off their engagement. Only Elizabeth and Lady Catherine seem concerned about how society will view the couple. The Matlocks are accepting of Elizabeth and the Bennets, so are Georgianna, Colonel Fitzwilliam, Elizabeth’s real father, etc. so why does Elizabeth play the drama queen and insist she cannot marry Darcy? She creates multiple episodes of drama when no one else seems to care. Darcy begs, pleads, humiliates himself, yet she will not marry him. He almost dies, yet sticks to her stubborn ideas. I can’t understand why Darcy wanted her in the end, she was such a pain. I finished the book, but was so annoyed the whole time. I won’t listen a second time

persistence against the odds pays off

Lizzy gave me whiplash with her i decision. The yes and no to the marriage made me want to throat punch her!! Frustrating!!! Darcy was steadfast and tenacious, which finally paid off. Mrs. Bennett was a real mercenary social climber to the bitter end! Here's to hoping that vile villain gets his in the next book. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a good job.

Loved it.

Really great story. Well written story and greatly narrated. I highly recommend this book to a Jane Austen fan fiction lover.

Fabulous book

I have never read this book although it's been in my library some time. I listened while a painted a bedroom in my house totally engrossing made hard work much more pleasant.
