    The Elizabeth he had seen last evening was a stranger to him, a spoiled child with her screeching and outrage He stared at the closed door and sighed What could he do God alone knew how much he missed his beloved angel and closest friend, and that after only one night apart Why, he missed her so much that he wanted to strangle her.Well, it s obvious that she has lost her mind Darcy prided himself as always on his calm, his reasoning capabilities I am married to a madwoman. This book is meant to be fanfiction of the beloved Pride and Prejudice I can only imagine that the author read an annotated version of the original, possibly a book report of it, written by Kim Kardashian during her high school years It bears no resemblance to the original It is the most atrocious Pride and Prejudice fanfiction I have ever read, and mind you, my love for the tale is such that my standards for PP fanfiction is exceedingly low.Need I remind you that this is a woman who adored Mr Darcy Takes a Wife Pride and Prejudice Continue...

    Mr Darcy sleeping with Caroline Bingley Elizabeth Bennett turning into an irritable, emotional shrew who throws things at Darcy Col Fitzwilliam and Darcy swearing all the time I think not Don t be tempted by the stunning cover and clever title Stay far, far away from this book.

    I couldn t make myself finish this book I read about 1 3 of it, and just couldn t take any I m a sucker for novels inspired by Pride and Prejudice, and I m willing to try almost any of them I come across, but I m almost always disappointed In this case, the author makes zero attempt to recreate the classic Regency style of the original The tone does not match at all She has Darcy and his cousin, Fitzwilliam, using foul language to each other out of the hearing of the ladies, of course, I ll grant you that and Fitzwilliam routinely calls Darcy Brat it seems to be his pet name for Darcy None of this rings true to the original I just can t imagine the characters in Jane Austin s book talking this way to each other.And even disappointing is the plot What kind of a plot do I want for a sequel I don t know, but I haven t found it yet It has to be some version of and they lived happily ever after but still have something in it to keep one s interest This one definitely isn t happily ever a...

    Poor, to say the least, don t get me wrong, the closeness between the two main protagonists was endearing but it was clearly poorly thought out researched, the tone and humour was all wrong, witty but the tale belonged in present day America not in 19th regency Britain and as for the women in this tale the were perverted and deformed beyond belief or recognition, this author clearly has forgotten that they are writing the stories and adventures of charactes that have existed and survived for almost 200 years, it comes from a source, PP, I mean Elizabeth Bennett becomes her mother for goodness sake, and colonel Fitzwilliam character is basically a carbon copy of Wickham s yet he and Darcy remain friends and Darcy and his aunt are dismissive to these character flaws, and even find humour in it No these blunders are too grave to ignore not to mention the incorrect use of to sep...

    Pride and Prejudice sequel Unputdownable Hot, heavy and laugh out loud funny sequel where the tempers flair in the Darcy s household Enters with a little snippet of untold story from canon, where Darcy informs Fitzwilliam of his resent, unlucky event Their relationship was on of the high lights of the book Snarkiness aside, they were brothers at heart The newlywedded bliss takes a turn when Elizabeth s mother dies unexpectedly A question arises and Elizabeth discovered one of Darcy s previous mistresses in their midst Their quarrels was legendary and destructive in sense than oneAnother surprise was Lady Catherine, quite a force to be reckoned with and hilariously funny.The backstory with her and Darcy was elaborated and her dedication to her nephews was heart warming Lady C also provided my favourite set down of Caroline, everThe Colonel had his own thrilling story with love, lust and battles It all culminated in the birth of the long anticipated Darcy heir and what a nailbitingl...

    I have some major issues with the author s interpretation of several of the characters, but it was certainly entertaining I especially enjoyed Colonel Fitzwilliam The light hearted humor between the cousins made for an enjoyable read.

    This is strange Pride Prejudice variation Told from a male perspective the saving grace of the book is that Lady Catherine is redeemed and a hoot Darcy is a not very likeable, Caroline Bingley is a woman of easy virtue and Lizzy is a whiny harridan.

    Karen V Wasylowski s Darcy and Fitzwilliam A Tale of a Gentleman and an Officer is a sequel of sorts to Jane Austen s Pride and Prejudice that focuses on the strong friendship between cousins Fitzwilliam Darcy, gentleman, and Richard Fitzwilliam, colonel and war hero Darcy is settling into marriage with Elizabeth Bennet, and Fitzwilliam is content as a bachelor, despite his high and mighty aunt, Lady Catherine, insisting that he marry.The first part of the book follows Darcy as he navigates impending fatherhood and engages in fiery arguments with Elizabeth about his past with the vindictive Caroline Bingley The second part puts Fitzwilliam in the spotlight as he overcomes his memories of the horrors of battle by falling in love The final part brings Darcy and Fitzwilliam and their families together Readers will meet a amusing Lady Catherine, a less socially awkward Georgiana Darcy, an even horrid Caroline Bingley, and a carefree Mr Bennet, but Charles and Jane Bingley, the rest of the Bennet sisters, and even George Wickham are relegated to the background.Darcy and Fitzwilliam is unique in that it gives Fitzwilliam is giving a starring role I enjoy Austen variations in which the minor characters in her novels the ones many of us are curious about are fleshed out and given new life I loved the story about Fitzwilliam, so much so that I believe...

    Colonel Fitzwilliam what do we know of him In a direct manner, Jane Austen tells us that Colonel Fitzwilliam is not handsome, but in person and address most truly the gentleman In addition, we see his charismatic and genial nature in his conversations with Elizabeth and can assume that he is responsible and conscientious since he was selected to be Georgiana s guardian But that is hardly enough, is it Colonel Fitzwilliam is right up there with Captain Wentworth and Colonel Brandon as one of Jane Austen s most intriguing and dashing military men And Janeites everywhere have being dying to know about this captivating, well bred, and irresistible officer In her debut novel, Karen Wasylowski delivers a satisfying sequel to Pride and Prejudice that augments the character of Colonel Fitzwilliam In this dual plot novel we spend part of the time witnessing Darcy and Elizabeth in their third year of marriage, and part of the time with the celebrated military hero, Colonel Fitzwilli...

    This is quite a difficult book to review At times, it had me laughing out loud and at other times I was left wondering who these characters are Darcy and Elizabeth especially The first half of the book is about them and we are catching up with them 3 years into marriage as their first born us due At the start we see a really lovely, playful relationship but this is not maintained He is a total snob and a bully She is a screaming mad woman His credibility is completely undermined by his past where there was a liaison with Caroline Bingley The second part of the book is about Colonel Fitzwilliam I liked his story a lot I liked him, and his love interest The banter between him and Darcy was good and funny Lady Catherine is also really funny I also really love the cover I don t know why this makes any difference as I read it on Kindle but I still like a good cover There is a lot of great humour in this book but it has a Bridgette Jones feel about it...
