Book Description

● Ranked #1 in Classic Short Stories
● Ranked #1 in Historical Fiction Short Stories

❝A Darcy and Elizabeth Short Story which fashions many of Jane Austen's own timeless words into another engaging path to happily ever after!❞

In this diverting Pride and Prejudice short story, what if Darcy had not wounded Elizabeth's pride by insulting her at the Meryton assembly and had danced with her instead? What if Elizabeth had refused to hear a negative word formed against Darcy by his former friend, George Wickham? What if Elizabeth had been so agreeably engaged with thoughts of the master of Pemberley that by the time his visit to Kent was drawing nearer to its end, she was indeed expecting his proposal?

A Darcy and Elizabeth short story is full of romance, misunderstandings and lengthy letters. No surprise there then but it was a delightful change. I thoroughly enjoy all P. O. Dixon alternatives.

4.0 out of 5 stars a couple of hours enjoyment 6 Mar. 2015

I don't really like spending over £2 for a book this length but it's a very good story, very well written and a coffee would have cost me the same or more and not lasted anywhere near as long nor offered as much enjoyment.

Too short! The remaining pages were advertisements for her other books. The most interesting part was the conversation between Anne and Elizabeth. Also, the confrontation between all parties involved at Rosings made it more interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Expecting His Proposal: A Darcy and Elizabeth Short Story 15 Aug. 2014
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Pleasing variation of Darcy's infamous marriage proposal to Elizabeth while in Kent visiting Charlotte. In P. O. Dixon's newest book, Darcy danced with Elizabeth at the Meryton Assembly changing Austen's slant on the relationship between Darcy and Elizabeth from the very beginning. Elizabeth is hoping for a proposal, and Darcy delivers just the first paragraph of his infamous proposal to Elizabeth leaving all the negative parts unspoken. Of course, the way to the altar is not without its difficulties as Colonel Fitzwilliam again unwittingly creates a problem that Darcy must remedy quickly if he is to win Elizabeth's love. Quick read.

4.0 out of 5 stars I like this author a lot. This story is too short, but delightful. 18 Aug. 2014
By carol p - Published on Amazon.com

This is a short story that I wanted to go on and on. You will love Darcy and like Elizabeth a bit less. I liked that Lizzie had so little vanity in P&P that she was not expecting Darcy to propose. But this story takes a different tack and Darcy doesn't say rude things at the ball. So their are reasons Lizzie feels differently about Darcy in this story. You will get the same story but with a different bit of a turn. You will love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly delightful 15 Aug. 2014
By Erika L Hoemke - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ms Dixon strikes again with a wonderful tale. The only problem in my eyes was that it was too short!!!! Just when it was getting good with Mr Bennet's letter it ends!!! I like this Elizabeth because she was more accepting, that is until provoked. This story really does emulate how vain Elizabeth really is in most P&P fanfiction. And dear Mr Darcy, still is proud but definitely appears more accepting and changeable than ever. Kudos to Ms Dixon!! You keep rolling them out and I'll keep buying!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Different take on Darcy's proposal -in a good way! 2 Jan. 2015
By LilMissMolly - Published on Amazon.com
I'm a huge Jane Austen fan, and Pride and Prejudice is the primary reason. I'm always hesitant to read "fan fiction" that attempts to rewrite what Miss Austen said so eloquently the first time. However, I just love narrator Pearl Hewitt. She has a spunk and sassiness in her readings that make listening very enjoyable. She enunciates with British sophistication with the best of them! So, when I saw that Pearl had a new narration of P.O. Dixon's Expecting His Proposal: A Darcy and Elizabeth Short Story, I thought why not give it a try? I was pleasantly surprised with the story and glad I listened.

The story is an alternative to the infamous first proposal. Thankfully, the whole Wickham misunderstanding is avoided in this story. Instead, the story starts off with Elizabeth's attraction to Darcy and how she looks forward to their meetings. P.O. Dixon does a very good job of weaving several of Austen's dialog passages into her own story- just placing them in a different context.

I highly recommend this short story to anyone who enjoys Jane Austen and alternative scenarios.
