    1. In this variation, Elizabeth meets and marries a duke at a young age. However, he is dying. To protect her and their twin sons' futures, he begs his best friend to protect her by marrying her. Of course, that friend is Darcy. It is love at first sight for him, but he is foolish enough to fall for Caroline's malicious character assassinations more than once. Can he overcome his own pride and weaknesses to win her love?For a first published novel this was a very good story. Much better than some o [...]


    2. The concept of this variation was good. But, in the first half, it lacked detail and the characters lacked depth. I had to rely on my established knowledge, from other reading, of Elizabeth and Darcy's characters to love them in this version. Unlike in other P&P variations, the author did not offer new insite or make me love them more. Three stars were given to the last half, otherwise it would have recieved only two for poor execution of a promising idea.


    3. Voilà encore un livre qui aurait gagné à ne pas utiliser les personnages austeniens, ou comment les auteurs se font du mal en voulant utiliser Jane Austen pour vendre plus! Nous sommes ici dans une soi-disant réecriture d'Orgueil et Préjugés où Elizabeth aurait rencontré un Duc avant même de connaître Darcy et l'aurait épousé. Elle aime son mari mais malheureusement il tombe malade et avant de mourir confie son épouse à son meilleur ami, Darcy.Habituellement une réecriture change [...]


    4. It was alright. An interesting premise, although poorly executed. My big problem with it was continuity. The month and year listed under each chapter was at odds with the story and, a few times, with what characters said. For example, if I went by the month and year for one chapter, then her children would be putting together two word sentences and questions at around 11 months, which either makes her children really smart, or the author didn't look up when cognitive speech patterns in children [...]


    5. What if Elizabeth was already married to another man when Darcy first met her? What if Elizabeth's husband was a wealthy, esteemed, yet terminally-ill duke? What if Darcy agreed to look after and marry the soon-to-be widow at the request of his good friend Rafael, the Duke of Deronshire?What an extraordinarily unique variation of Pride and Prejudice! Instead of Elizabeth being below Darcy's station, she is far above it. Instead of being a gentleman's daughter with no dowry or connections, she is [...]


    6. I tremendously enjoyed this book. I loved the different circumstances for Darcy and Elizabeth. Elizabeth being married to Darcy's best friend first is a great twist. I enjoyed reading about her angst after her first love dies and the care she takes of her sons. The turmoil she finds herself in in letting go of his memory and attaching her love to Darcy. I can imagine myself while reading this. I enjoyed the characterization of Aunt Agatha especially. Bingley and Jane were true to form. Miss Bing [...]


    7. I WAS REALLY EXCITED TO READ THIS BOOK!! This alternative is really quite clever. It starts out a few years earlier. Elizabeth is about 18 and with her Uncle Gardiner on the continent when she meets a young Duke. Obviously she marries the Duke and becomes a Duchess. The story line has lots of promise, the problem is that the author has jagged ideas that sometimes leaves you wondering what she wrote. I had a hard time understanding some of the passages. Also it needs to be edited better. If it wa [...]


    8. This is one of those P&P What-Ifs that is very loosely connected to the original. I snipped the cord of the loose attachment and just enjoyed a story that had similar names. For this to be enjoyable to a Jane Austen P&P fan, you must do it. There were good characters, interesting plot, and strong emotions to delight a reader of gentle historical romance.I liked how the author took the concept of Elizabeth having the upper hand in the relationship not just in love, but in consequence. I f [...]


    9. I admit I had high hopes for this Pride and Prejudice variation, especially with it having such a unique story line. Alas, I find myself somewhat disappointed. The story had potential, but it was lost with ambiguous characters. Don't get me wrong, the characters are as they ever are-the same brooding Darcy struggling with his feelings; the same catty Caroline obsessed with Pemberley; the same easily offended Elizabeth-and that's the problem. The author did not take in account how the characters [...]


    10. Great ReadThis is a wonderful story, and I have to admit, I liked it even better on rereading it. This version starts with Elizabeth meeting and marrying a Duke. After tragedy strikes the story then continues with the relationship between Elizabeth and Darcy (who was her husband's dearest friend). It is a very interesting tale and the usual villains appear. Miss Bingley is extremely evil and dislikable in this story, and her comeuppance is very satisfying. I truly enjoyed reading this and highly [...]


    11. I loved the first 35% of this, but when I hit around the 40% mark, I decided it was time to put it down. I just don't like Darcy characterized as anything other than a gentleman. His fantasies were starting to get a little too steamy for me. Perhaps I'll pick it up again someday, but for now, it's going on the "did not finish" shelf.


    12. So very fun and different. Darcy meets Elizabeth but it is not her low connections which discourages his suit but the fact that she is already married to a good friend! Wow! What an interesting idea. And when he gets the chance at her he still messes up the proposal! A short and quick read that I very much enjoyed.


    13. Great premise! Nice balance between not too chaste, and not too sexy (I like the bodice ripping, myself). A few typos/word usage errors, but not so many as to detract from the story and nothing that wouldn't get fixed with a professional edit should it be picked up for regular publication (which I would anticipate). This is an author I hope to see more from.


    14. The plot diversions of Caroline Bingley and Wickham detracted from the central love story leaving the story flat at times. There was not much in the way of effervescent witty dialogue to help the narrative along either.
