Publisher's Summary

All is fair in love and war - or is it? What if Mr. Darcy's rival for Elizabeth Bennet's hand and heart is not some inconsequential stranger, but his dearest, closest friend? How is he to reconcile the claims of loyalty and kinship with the urge to pursue his heart's desire?

"Eyes tightly shut against the horrifying future, Darcy dug his fingers in his hair. Lost to him forever. Not merely lost, but promised to his cousin - firmly in his life, but never his! How in God's name was he to bear it and not become unhinged? How was he to have her at his table as Richard's affianced, and not betray himself? How was he to see her, time and again, and give no sign that he wanted her more than he had ever wanted any woman? How was he to keep up the pretence, day after excruciating day?"

    "Heart-wrenchingly delightful!"

    I'm in the midst of a Pride and Prejudice variation spree, and there are certain things I'm always looking for: the characters seem true to the originals and haven't been poorly "modernized," the language passes as fitting with the original mood and time period, and the new plot is believable. This book passes on all three accounts. The narration was also excellent! Stevie Zimmerman does a great job with both male and female voices and various accents.

    While we don't get to see much into Elizabeth's perspective, or Colonel Fitzwilliam's for that matter, about how their courtship and his proposal unfolded at the very beginning of the book, what we do see, largely from Darcy's perspective, is believable. And it is, as another reviewer wrote, exquisite torture! Poor Darcy is stuck between a rock and a hard place-- or rather, between his inextinguishable and too-late acted upon love for Elizabeth and his loyalty to Fitzwilliam and respect for his and Elizabeth's obviously sincere attachment. Later on we do see more things from Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam's sides, to round out the whole story a bit more. For the longest time you'll be wondering how in the world this whole thing could possibly be resolved! I enjoyed it all with a smile on my face.

    "Purely exquisite!"

    I lived to tell the tale. Joana, you are a genius mistress of written music. I don't think I can say anything else to justify this lovely book. My new favorite of yours!

    Would you listen to The Unthinkable Triangle again? Why?

    Absolutely, a wonderful book and outstanding performance


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Darcy and Dona Teresa. Darcy was true to character, Dona Teresa was a very colorful and interesting character.


    Have you listened to any of Stevie Zimmermanโ€™s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    All Stevie Zimmerman's performances are excellent. I loved her Spanish and French accents in this one.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    My heart was breaking for Darcy and then for colonel Fitzwilliam
