Book Description

18 April 2013
Elizabeth Bennet, Pride and Prejudice's irrepressible heroine, is long celebrated for her prowess in a battle of wits, in particular with the dashing Fitzwilliam Darcy. Compelling Consequences: A Tale Fashioned from Pride and Prejudice takes readers through the heartbreak, adventure, loss, and recovery that are companion to these famed lovers, while adding an extra dash of spice and adventure. The wealthy, convivial bachelor Charles Bingley enjoys the company of his pedigreed single friend Fitzwilliam Darcy as he considers the purchase of an estate in Hertfordshire. He also gives shelter to the lovely Bennet sisters, Elizabeth and Jane. Included in the mix is Caroline, Charles's meddling sister who will stop at nothing to hijack Darcy's attentions. While Elizabeth and Darcy experience an immediate attraction, tension soon mounts over his haughty, high-minded attitudes. Even amid the conflict, Elizabeth and Darcy put their differences aside, and enter into a courtship. Fate soon separates them due to two serious events; yet Darcy will allow no peril to keep him from his heroic rescue of Elizabeth. An enthralling story with suprising twists, and a few choice snags, unfolds as Darcy and Elizabeth once again are brought together passionately by fate. Just as their perils end, the lovers are troubled by the very character flaws plaguing them from early days. Again destiny intervenes, and Elizabeth is helped in overcoming Darcy's snobbery. Cold shoulders, trials, and family pratfalls aside, throughout the novel, the two enjoy many lighthearted moments, and steamy nights that transcend their trademark Pride and Prejudice, and make for a red-blooded rollicking romance.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just an excuse for wild sex! 13 May 2013
By Blackthorne - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read this book to the end only because I paid good money for it. The plotline was completely implausible, and the characters bore no resemblance whatever to the original P and P characters. The author has turned Elizabeth Bennet into a subservient slut, and Darcy into a randy rake! I've read many variations and continuations of this favorite story, and many of them were merely excuses to dress up pornography to make a buck. Some were written with an effort to remain sensitive to the original characters. I have no problem with well-written sex scenes if they add to the story in some way, but when the sex is copious and gratuitous it simply nauseates. To add insult to injury, the punctuation is awful, and the dialog is stilted. I'm sorry, but I can't think of one redeeming feature in this dreadful book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly written, poorly imagined. It pains me to have been so offended. 23 May 2013
By Mia - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read many Pride and Prejudice adaptations and have learned to be somewhat forgiving of poor grammar and ill-conceived characters, but this is beyond what paying readers should tolerate.

The Elizabeth in this book is unrecognizable. She defers to Darcy in all matters and he encourages her in this. The reader is made to understand that such behavior is the way to earn Darcy's respect. The author also has Elizabeth express her sexual desires in a crude fashion that made me cringe. I don't care if there are sex scenes in these books, but I do look for some semblance of romance and dignity. No one wants to read Elizabeth's description of her urinary tract infection.

The story begins with the unlikely idea that Mrs. Bennet would steal the girls' inheritance after Mr. Bennet dies and send them off into the world to work. Equally unlikely is the notion that the Gardiners would sit by idly. As Darcy rescues the sisters one by one, the scenarios get sillier and more far fetched. Elizabeth is far more interested in satiating her appetite for Darcy than worrying for Jane, who is in dire circumstances. Everything from the timelines to the rescue operations to the behaviors of the principal characters is non-sensical, not to mention off-putting.

It is a shame that so many of these books make it to the paying public without a proper editor. Something is not always better than nothing; we deserve better. Jane Austen deserves better.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hard to suspend disbelief at times 1 July 2013
By jayne - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really did not like the immature, oral sex obsessed Darcy. All of the characters seemed shallow and the dialogue was unnatural. The characters, plot, details and dialogue just did not ring true for the early 1800s. It seemed like a script for an low budget action adventure movie with Darcy as the flawed hero - imagine Billy Zane in a soft porn flick.

Better proofreading would help, too.

1.0 out of 5 stars do not bother to buy 31 May 2013
By Kathleen H. Waln - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Unfortunately, the author takes a good idea and develops it poorly. The characters are not close to Austen's brilliant Darcy and Elizabeth. The story is poorly written and not worth your time to read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 27 Jun 2013
By H. Mitchell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It seem as though this author just jumped on the band wagon for Pride & Prejudice what ifs without having any connection to the story or the characters. This was a disappointment from half way through the first chapter to the end. Badly done indeed.
