Publisher's Summary

In marriage-minded Regency England, one simple word can ruin your life. Compromise! Can bring down a virtuous maiden, like Miss Elizabeth Bennet, and her entire family along with her.

When Elizabeth finds Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy outside Netherfield, alone and at his most vulnerable, she must make a quick decision to bend the rules of propriety to help him or turn her back on someone in need. Her tender heart reaches out to him and his wounded one grabs hold of her well-intentioned support. Discovery changes the course of their lives as Elizabeth is forced to accept a reluctant proposal of marriage from this man whom she has just barely begun to respect. Can Jane Austen's most beloved couple reach a compromise that might turn a tenuous friendship into a loving marriage? Will it survive as desperate, unscrupulous, and foolish people alike set compromising machinations into motion for their own greedy ends?

Follow Elizabeth and Darcy in this novel-length Regency romance as J. Dawn King takes them through a sweet variation of Pride and Prejudice where compromises abound and outcomes will surprise you.

    Story
    "FINALLY! P&P FF with Integrity."
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Compromised!?

    I really enjoyed the characters in this story retaining the basic instincts that Jane Austen intended. Their circumstances were far different than I'd imagined and far different than the same rehashing of these characters done over and over again in other fan fiction that was a waste of time before. This story was imagined well and the flow of characters made great sense. This author knew exactly what made them tick originally and thrust them into situations that allowed those personality traits to react naturally.


    Which character – as performed by Stevie Zimmerman – was your favorite?

    Her accent is excellent.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are tired and disgusted by all of the P&P fan fiction out there that is silly, give it one more try. This one has a brain and is still romantic and hopeful.

    Story
    "Good guys win - bad guys lose"

    Fresh and creative Pride and Prejudice variation expertly narrated by Stevie Zimmerman. Lots of cliff hanger moments, fun and funny stuff, romantic intrigue with Caroline Bingley getting her comeuppance. She's (Caroline) my fav "Snidely Whiplash" character in the many P&P variations I've read. Pearl Hewitt (my fav narrator) does the best Caroline voice in all the audibles ... Stevie Zimmerman makes a creditable voice characterization. Enjoy!

    "Ok story "

    Stevie Zimmerman's reading was first class as always, but the story line , while lovely, quickly became redundent & tropey for my personal taste.
    Normally, I love Ms. King's works, but this one just left me feeling meh.
