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.

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.

HASH(0x9815bc3c) 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.

HASH(0x97fa5030) out of 5 stars Very Nice 18 Nov. 2011
By Cherri - Published on Amazon.com

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!

HASH(0x97dcb510) 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.

HASH(0x97dcb204) out of 5 stars Georgiana's Lovely Romance 29 Nov. 2011
By Becky at "One Literature Nut" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In the characteristically romantic style of author Sharon Lathan, Georgiana Darcy's story feels nothing like a departure from our most famous Darcy couple, but feels more like a beautiful continuation within the family. For fans of Pride and Prejudice, I think that most readers will agree that we want to see Georgiana happy in love someday, especially after all that she endured with George Wickham. Now as an adult, and seeing the wonderful relationship of her older brother with Elizabeth Bennet, nothing could be better than to see Georgiana equally as happy in love.

Picking up where The Trouble With Mr. Darcy left off, we follow Georgiana home through Europe. Focusing less on the travel aspect, and more on character development, we meet friends of the Darcys such as with Sebastian Butler. Sebastian is not an ordinary character for his time, in that he is not necessarily aloof or terribly complicated. That does not mean that he was not interesting. His sweet character was kind and generous around others, but it was his passion for music that lent him that certain cluelessness that we love in Austen's men. Sebastian, in all his gentleness, has made fast friends with Georgiana and shared a real passion for music that bonds the two. Their friendship was sweet and delectable. As for Lord Caxton, who comes along to complicate it all, he seemed more like the villain than the possible love interest, which made it all the easier to love Sebastian and root for his awakening to what he had with Georgiana.

Sharon's novels do contain sensual scenes, that are grippingly romantic. If that is not your scene, let me warn you now. I wouldn't say that this novel is nearly as sensual as previous books though. I get that some people do not enjoy having a romantic interlude spelled out for them, but I can't say that is a reason to completely denigrate an author's story. Sharon's writing has never felt overplayed, in my opinion, and her writing style has this period feel to it that is stunning. As readers, we not only get swept away in the beauty of her writing, but we also develop a greater interest in her characters. In every way, these characters feel real and applicable to us, with their dreams and emotions spelled out on the page. 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. Although the sixth in the Darcy saga, Miss Darcy Falls in Love can be read as a stand alone. And for cynics of romance, which I would usually count myself a part, these books make me want to believe!

HASH(0x97dcb87c) out of 5 stars Not quite up to snuff 4 Jan. 2012
By Stone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have loved all Ms. Lanthan's books following the lives of the Darcy's, Bennett's, Bingley's etal. I remember reading Austen's book, Pride and Prejudice, as a kid and found that I loved this story more than all of Austen's (although Emma was a close second)! So I was a little disappointed when I read "Miss Darcy Falls in Love". Although Ms. Lanthan kept the same vain as her other books, I found this story to be a bit dull; I missed the spice that her other books possessed. The characters were boring, the story seemed a bit rushed and the outcome was obvious from the beginning, despite having known it from her previous book. Ms. Darcy's "affair" with the baron was a little contrived and well, unnecessary. You knew it was merely infactuation and not real love. Mr. Butler was in no danger of losing her - throughout the entire book. I would have loved to have heard more about their adventures in France...how they lived, what they did with their time; the parties, etc. Most of that was simply glossed over. All in all I enjoy Ms. Lanthan's style of writing and look forward to seeing more from her...perhaps continuing the story of Emma?
