Product Description

Product Description

A courtship is a journey of discovery…

…but what do we know of the official betrothal of Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet? We may assume there were awkward social events to navigate, tedious wedding arrangements to negotiate, and Bingley’s toplofty sisters to accommodate. How did Darcy and Elizabeth manage these travails, and each other?

Longbourn to London is not a Pride and Prejudice “what if,” nor is it a sequel. Rather, it is an expansion of the betrothal of Jane Austen’s favorite couple. We follow Lizzy’s journey from spirited maiden scampering about the fields of Hertfordshire to nervous, blushing bride in Mayfair, where she learns the unexpected joys of marriage to a man as willing to be teased as she is to tease him.

Join us as IPPY award-winning author Linda Beutler (2013 Silver Medal, Independent Publishers Awards, for The Red Chrysanthemum) imagines the betrothal and early honeymoon of Jane Austen’s greatest couple.

Includes mature content.

2.0 out of 5 stars pride and prejudice meets fifty shades 24 Aug 2014
By JacquiT
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As with Fifty Shades, I tried very hard to find a decent storyline and failed miserably. In the case of Longbourn to London, it seemed even more of a struggle and I found myself skimming through the sex scenes out of boredom. Worth reading for a laugh maybe, but not for the serious P and P enthusiast

5.0 out of 5 stars Good read 20 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
thought this book was well written with only one or two Americanisms. if you are one of those people who do not like sex between Elizabeth and Darcy don't read it as there is plenty of it but I felt for the most part it was fairly tastefully done. Darcy is very romantic and loving,as we would hope for and Mrs Bennett even nastier to Elizabeth than I would have expected ... I have no quarrels with Ms Beutler's characterisations, I feel she sketches them all very well indeed. Would certainly recommend this book to P & P fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Read 23 Aug 2014
By Melz
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great book and highly recommend it if you are interested in ALL aspects of Darcy and Elizabeth's courtship and subsequent marriage. There are a number of intimate scenes in the book and as another reviewer pointed out if you don't like this don't buy it. Longbourn to London for me, was a great read ... so why 4 stars? I think that the book could have been longer and there were a few story lines within it that I would have loved to have seen expanded but weren't or opportunities for Elizabeth to stand up for her self where she didn't, and I found myself getting really frustrated. However, would love to see a sequel of this book as I really enjoyed it. p.s. Loved the way the author developed Jane's character and Mrs Bennett was especially hideous.

A really enjoyable read which followed the initial love story with more details of the time. The few times when the story veered into fantasy gave I believe more body to the tale.

3.0 out of 5 stars WELL WRITTEN BUT DISAPPOINTED 15 Aug 2014
By Lizzybelle - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like the way Ms. Beutler writes, but was disappointed in this book. It said something about learning more of each other during their courtship. However, the only things they learned had to do with sex. I don't mind some sex in a book, but prefer it not to be the only thing. There was one particularly sweet scene where Darcy surprises Lizzy at the end of the story, which was a pleasure to read.

4.0 out of 5 stars A lovely, almost too peaceful romance 31 Aug 2014
By Lieder Madchen - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a sweet and sensual sequel Pride and Prejudice, interspersed with moments of delightful mischief. If you are looking for a relaxing romance to give you the warm-and-fuzzies, this is it.

Speaking of relaxed, it was lovely to see a carefree and playful Darcy. His lady has agreed to marry him, Wickham is safely out of the way and he hasn't a care in the world. Well, at least not until Mrs. Philips and Mrs. Bennet start stirring up trouble. Then he becomes more of a nervous and worried Darcy, which was also oddly adorable.

This book has an interesting take on Elizabeth, some of which I cannot say here due to spoilers. Most of the story centered around her feelings and fears as her wedding day approached. There was an interesting transition as she moved from being her parents' daughter to Darcy's wife.

Mr. Bennet played the largest role of any of the side characters as he was called upon to thwart his wife's trouble-making. It was nice to see him put his foot down when Mrs. Bennet was at her worst. Caroline made a melodramatic appearance and Colonel Fitzwilliam was strangely...creepy. I was a little disappointed when that didn't lead to anything. Mrs. Gardiner was, of course, absolutely magnificent.

I liked this book a lot, but I do wish there was a little more conflict, mostly 'cause I'm an evil reader who likes to see my favorite characters suffer. Everything was a little too peaceful for this to be one of my favorites, but other than that I have no complaints. The writing was lovely, the characters true to themselves yet not wholly traditional, and the story was a great deal of fun.

I received a copy of this book as part of a blog tour in exchange for a fair and honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Read! 28 Aug 2014
By Bobbie S. - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
After having enjoyed "The Red Chrysanthemum " as one of over 350 P and P variations I have read, I eagerly awaited this title. I know many have complained of the sexual content, however, I did not find that to be the least bit off putting. We all know how passionately Darcy loves Elizabeth, why be shocked that they might actually be tempted to act on that passion. Lets face it, the mores of society may have been different in the Regency period, but love is love and we certainly continue to read this great "love" story. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and commend the author for allowing us also to read it under the KU program. I look forward to more titles from her.

4.0 out of 5 stars I thoroughly enjoyed 8 Aug 2014
By KindleLover - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed this Darcy and Lizzy and this specific period of time in their relationship. The best thing about this book is the way they communicated with each other. A few bumps before marriage and immediately after the wedding but then they had very open communication. There was nothing off limits and they were able to cover subjects that I believe would have been unusual to discuss in most male/female relationships at that time in history.
This story covers the most intimate parts of their marriage. While I do not like explicit sex(and this has plenty) it is all after marriage. This is perhaps the most detailed and thorough window into their newlywed life that I have read in a long while. Well written

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh My Goodness 11 Sep 2014
By Janelle Taggart - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
P&P has never been my favorite romance. I could never understand the infatuation with Darcy (except of course as he emerges, played by Colin Firth, from the Pemberley pond). Jane Austen's story is incredibly written but every time I read the chapter wherein Lizzy realizes her love for Darcy I get all squirmy because I feel she's just infatuated with his physique and house and power and so I want to yell, "No, run away, he's a jerk!" I guess that could be an interesting JAFF alternative... Lizzy revealed as a golddigger, lol.

Anyhoo, Linda's story is phenomenally romantic, and not just between Darcy and Lizzy but the story is filled with thoughtful gestures of love and friendship doled out by all JA's original characters. Practically every scene is sigh worthy and quite a few made me tear up. The dance near the end is sweet. This is the first time I've encountered such sparks and chemistry between Fitz and Lizzy. They are now one of my favorite couples.

But I'm still on Team Knightly.
