Review

"If you're looking for a beautiful backdrop in history along with the romance we all dream about, then you'll fall in love with "Miss Darcy Falls in Love"" - The Pen & Muse

Product Description

The choice of a lifetime...

One young lady following her passion for music. Two strong men locked in a bitter rivalry for her heart. A journey of self-discover, and a trap of her own making.

Georgiana Darcy is going to have to carve out her own destiny, however ill-equipped she may feel...

Hugely successful bestselling author (over 250,000 copies sold through) of sensual, romantic Pride and Prejudice continuations explores unusual aspects of the Regency world, this time following Mr. Darcy's younger sister into the world of classical music.

Noble young ladies were expected to play an instrument, but Georgiana Darcy is an accomplished musician who hungers to pursue her talents. She embarks upon a tour of Europe, ending in Paris where two very different men will ignite her heart in entirely different ways and begin a bitter rivalry to win her. But only one holds the key to her happiness. 

Set in post-Napoleonic Empire France, Miss Darcy Falls in Love is a riveting love story that enters a world of passion where gentlemen know exactly how to please and a young woman learns to direct her destiny and understand her heart. 

Bestselling author Sharon Lathan has created a world of sensual Jane Austen continuations, including Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy: Two Shall Become One and The Passions of Dr. Darcy. Her work is widely praised for bringing the Regency period to life and for the depth of her stories of true love. Miss Darcy Falls in Love was selected as a World Book Night US 2014 title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Miss Darcy Falls in Love 21 Mar 2014

An excellent story following on from the original tale of Pride and Prejudice. I particularly enjoyed the scenes between the two friends for Miss Darcy's hand. How friendship won out and an attraction turned to love.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not as good as the Darcy Saga series 9 May 2013
By CK
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I like this book but not as much as the other Darcy Saga series. I don't understand why Miss Darcy would straight away let the baron call upon her at the same time having such strong feeling for Mr Butler - just a few minutes before? Was she trying to make Mr Butler jealous then? Why did she lead him on so profoundly? The bit where Mr Butler left (or attempt to leave) for Vienna and Miss Darcy feeling lost added a spice to the story, a typical romantic novel. But I would personally like to read more on their marriage life, esp. while studying in France. The story finished too quickly and abruptly for me. Overall I like.

4.0 out of 5 stars surprising and creative 17 Aug 2013
By S. Schaffer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I received this book from a friend. Let me say that I am not normally a fan of this author's works. I don't like the eroticism. It's just not my style of book. For those who it is then you would probably find this book not as exciting as the others. (Like I said I've read a couple others of this author's works and not felt a need to read any others but I was pressed into the action for personal circumstances) This book was interesting and the plot was good. I had a hard time following who was saying what at times. I didn't feel it was well defined in the format used. The very sensual scenes were pretty much confined to the last 30 pages or so of the book which I appreciated and could see coming...after all there is a marriage involved. It wasn't overly descriptive in this manner which I also appreciated. As a married person for 35 years I don't feel the need for every nuance. Romance yes, sex no. I did feel that this book was one of the best I've read in this genre for Miss Darcy. There are few about her as the main character and I felt the author did her justice. It really was believable that she could be such an intelligent, sensitive, creative and caring young woman. I loved the angst between the two suitors. I was really rooting for Sebastian. Lord Caxton is a worthy suitor but so demanding it was hard to know what to think of him at times. I enjoyed that about this novel. I was suitably repulsed by Sebastian's father and adored the other characters. Georgiana's friends Yvette and Zoe really added some fun to this novel as well. To me the misunderstandings were very real. I could see how they could happen and it pulls at your heartstrings. Overall a very good read and it helped me to appreciate this author's work in a positive light - which is 1 reason why I titled this review as surprising. (I had been very skeptical but this one I could read again.) For those readers out there like me, this one is pretty safe.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Nice 18 Nov 2011
By Cherri - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this outing with Miss Georgiana Darcy. Her story is not nearly as interesting as Darcy and Elizabeth's ongoing tales but that is only natural. This story had a little bit too much angst and misunderstanding for my taste but still it was a good solid story. Ms Lathan matched Georgiana up with someone I can believe would be her soulmate. I would recommend this book for fanfiction lovers and am looking forward to the next Darcy installment. I do so enjoy her books!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fitzwilliam Darcy Two Shall Become One" many many years ago in Target and I fell in love. Pride and Prejudice is my all time fav 5 Sep 2014
By aacmama - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I stumbled upon Lathan's first book "Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy Two Shall Become One" many many years ago in Target and I fell in love. Pride and Prejudice is my all time favorite book and I guess I was living under a rock I never knew that there were all these authors who took the characters and ran with it. Since I have read every one of Lathan's books as soon as they've come out and I've never been disappointed. I love how she has branched out to include the lives of others who are very much loved by William and Lizzy. I have read many other continuation novels but Lathan's versions are by far my favorite.

I love Sharon lathan. As a fellow Austen junkie, I found her books by accident. She does the research, grows the relationship and just makes it seem like Jane austen is in the 21st century.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jane Austen Fan Fiction (JAFF) Readers: Add Sharon Lathan to Your Reads 12 Feb 2014
By BOOKTALK WITH EILEEN - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
"Lathan has another home run hit on her hands here. Her name is certainly solidified with what good Jane Austen fan fiction should be. If you haven't given her novels a try, I suggest you do. Fast-paced and always full of the romance we all dream about, Miss Darcy Falls in Love is not one you'll want to miss. 4.5 out of 5 Regency Stars" - Austenprose

"I would recommend Miss Darcy Falls in Love to all those who love Austen sequels and if you're a reader that hasn't tried one you should. Miss Darcy Falls in Love would be a great choice as it really stands on its own." - Peeking Between the Pages

"Mixing the period with the timelessness and complications of romantic love, I simply can't get enough of the romance Sharon writes. Beyond being a fan of all things Austen and loving this period to begin with, Miss Darcy Falls in Love is a delectable and delightful romantic romp back to a time when men and women held back on saying what they felt, yet showed it in a number of reserved, romantic ways." - One Literature Nut

Sharon Lathan interviews on BOOKTALK WITH EILEEN February 13. She’s giving away a copy of Miss Darcy Falls in Love and 2 e-books of her soon-to-be-released book Darcy and Elizabeth: A Season of Courtship. Make sure to stop by. Here is a question and answer from the interview.

What do you enjoy most about writing love stories?

Love stories are empowering. No matter the era or genre, all love stories have the common thread of a woman finding her place in the world, learning her mind and heart, and discovering the best means to secure her happiness. She may be battling aliens or paranormal creatures, fighting bad guys or career decisions as a modern-day “tough chick,” or cleverly navigating the social nuances in a ballroom or country manor parlor. Wherever the heroine and hero are, whatever they are doing, in the end it is the mutual realization that they are stronger, better, more complete people if together. This is what I love.

Secondly, love stories give us hope and brighten our hearts. The reader knows that everything will work out and the ending will be satisfying. We need happiness in our world. We are constantly being told how bad life is. Reading a romance novel isn’t fantasy, as some say. No, these are real people readers can relate to, no matter the setting, who find a way through their troubles and triumph in the end. That is a message people need to hear!

About the Story: Miss Georgiana Darcy is touring Europe with family and is growing weary of being away from England until she meets a certain Sebastian Butler and a quick friendship ensues. Both are talented musicians and never grow tired of each other’s company. Mr. Butler shares his compositions with her and together they modify them to be exquisite pieces of music. Sebastian plans on joining the music conservatory, contrary to his father’s wishes, in the fall. He shows a music composition to one of the professors he and Miss Darcy composed. The professor said the music was brilliant and amazed with its quality and requests Miss Darcy to follow instruction at the Conservatoire. Miss Darcy knows she must return home. What can women do in a career?
Lord Caxton, an older and extremely handsome man, couldn’t take is eyes off of Miss Darcy. To him, she is exquisite and as he sets out to dazzle Miss Darcy he means to have her as his baroness.

Mr. Butler realizes that he loves Miss Darcy, but he fears it is too late. Lord Caxton tells Mr. Butler there is an understanding between him and Miss Darcy. Mr. Butler bows out, being the honorable thing to do. He only wants Miss Darcy happy. He is only more miserable and regrets his actions. Miss Darcy is hurt because he avoids her.

My Thoughts: I haven’t read Jane Austen Fan Fiction for years. I enjoyed it and was amused at how many words they used to actually say something. I feel the people in that time skirted around an issue. I told Ms. Lathan that they were so wordy. This is part of her reply. “I try to capture the essence of Austen's style, not going too modern nor too far into the past. Some say I capture Austen style right on - which always makes me laugh because I don't think anyone can do that, nor would I want to since it is too much. But I do go for a higher style, if you will. People did indeed talk in a much grander way with bigger words, a greater command of language and vocabulary, purple prose, minimal slang, etc. All part of that world we admire…. They had to be very clever with their phrasing, in large part to avoid overt flirting or impropriety.”

The story develops a beautiful friendship and an ever-deepening love. It was a sweet journey. If you are a JAFF reader and haven’t read Sharon Lathan you most certainly should. All her books are happily ever after endings and entertaining with their language giving us a peek at Europe in the early 1800’s.
