Product description

About the Author

The author of best-selling Pride and Prejudice variations, historical romance writer Victoria has a Ph.D. in English literature and has taught composition to unwilling college students. Today she is a freelance writer/editor who teaches business writing to willing office professionals and tries to give voice to the demanding cast of characters in her head. She lives in Virginia with an overly affectionate cat, two children who are learning how much fun Austen’s characters can be, and a husband who fortunately is not jealous of Mr. Darcy. A lifelong Austen fan, Victoria has read more Jane Austen variations and sequels than she can count – and confesses to an extreme partiality for the Colin Firth miniseries version of Pride and Prejudice.

To start with the first sentence, what a great start! I love when a book starts with something fresh and new, and these adjectives are valid for the whole book.
Romeo and Juliet meets Pride and Prejudice, but with happily ever after.
There are new characters and old characters have new personalities, which could be rather distressing as it is far from the canon, but there is poetic justice, so it all turns out well and to be fair, Ms Kincaid depicts him rather well, plus he is real and believeble character, you just need to put your assumptions that he can't be bad away.
All the scenes are remarkable- my favourites are: the masquerade ball, Georgiana and Elizabeth's first dialogue, Mr Collins's proposal, George Darcy and Lady Catherine's dialogue and the old Darcy's fate.
Elizabeth and Darcy's relationship is more real than in most of the variations, I think you'll see what I mean.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND

I was very interested to hear about Victoria Kincaid’s latest ‘Pride & Prejudice’ variation, 'Darcy vs. Bennet', hearing that it had a touch of the Romeo and Juliet about it. Assured of a happy ending, I was pleased to give it a go!

Mr Darcy and Elizabeth first meet at a masquerade and it’s a case of love at first sight. Mr Darcy here is not the master of Pemberley and hence the master of his own destiny. His father is very much alive and a very difficult man. Darcy doesn’t wish to marry his cousin Anne, and has been given three years during which he is expected to find a suitable wife. But the problem is, all the ladies he meets are very much the same, until he meets and converses with a lady he only knows as Elizabeth:

‘He found himself envisioning a future with this woman although he knew nothing of her family or situation. Her family might be objectionable, or she might already be promised in marriage.’

Elizabeth wasn’t invited to the masquerade; she was staying with a neighbour of the family holding the event, and her friend was determined to infiltrate the ball hoping for a dance with the eldest son of the family. Being abandoned by her friend, Elizabeth meets ‘Will’, whom she likes very much:

‘What she could see of his face suggested he was quite handsome. He was gentlemanly and solicitous in his manners. But what most struck Elizabeth was that the conversation between them flowed so effortlessly; it was as if they had known each other for years rather than minutes.’
Elizabeth later finds out Darcy’s name and realises that he is a member of the Darcy family from Derbyshire.

What a lovely story. I love the Romeo and Juliet theme. No wonder Mr Darcy senior is not often included in novels if he is such a nasty character. Luckily his son is not inclined to submit to his ruling. I found it hard to stop reading while I went to work! The only thing which would improve it is if it had been longer.

This is quite possibly the best book I have read this year, and I do read five most weeks. It is beautifully written and I found it nearly impossible to put down.
