Publisher Comments:

Sharon Lathan presents Mr & Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy, the sweetest, most romantic Jane Austen sequel.

The first in a series that follows Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy from their wedding day into married life, Mr. & Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy is inspired by the Keira Knightley/Matthew MacFayden movie. The author vividly imagines this young and energetic couple as they immerse themselves in their profound love and face the challenges of their era.

Elizabeth and Darcy are positively goo-goo eyes for each other and the burgeoning love and closeness between them drives the plot. As the narrative unfolds through the honeymoon and then the challenges of Elizabeth assuming the role of Mistress of Pemberley, Darcy and Elizabeth thoroughly reveal their differing points of view of how their relationship blossomed from misunderstanding to perfect understanding. As the couple grows in maturity and understanding, as they accustom themselves to each other and to married life, Mr. & Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy emerges as a fascinating portrait of a deep and passionate marriage.

Review:

"This surprisingly steamy sequel to Pride and Prejudice is the first of Lathan's fan-fiction interpretations of life after 'happily ever after' for Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet. The story, which opens moments after the lavish wedding ceremony, finds the new Mr. and Mrs. Darcy nestled into a carriage bound for their honeymoon. With curious minds, hands and mouths, they while away their vacation — and the following weeks and months, as they set up house at Pemberley — relishing their privacy and delighting in their new roles as husband and wife. And when the talk grows tiresome or those hours apart unbearable, they tumble into bed — or onto a bearskin rug. Still, through the haze of wedded bliss, time marches on: to Lizzy's delight, Darcy's sister, Georgiana, returns home just as Christmas preparations are underway, but all is not calm — the marquis of Orman, whom Elizabeth first encounters at the Twelfth Night Ball, has sinister intentions. This is probably the hottest Austen sequel yet." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Sharon Lathan presents Mr. & Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy, A fascinating portrait of a timeless, consuming love - and the sweetest, most romantic Jane Austen sequel.

It's Darcy and Elizabeth's wedding day, and the journey is just beginning as Jane Austen's beloved Pride and Prejudice characters embark on the greatest adventure of all: marriage and a life together filled with surprising passion, tender self-discovery, and the simple joys of every day.

As their love story unfolds in this most romantic of Jane Austen sequels, Darcy and Elizabeth reveal to each other how their relationship blossomed. From misunderstanding to perfect understanding and harmony, theirs is a marriage filled with romance, sensuality, and the beauty of a deep, abiding love.

WHAT READERS ARE SAYING:

This journey is truly amazing.

So beautifully written... making me feel as though I was in the room with Lizzy and Darcy... and sharing in all of the touching moments between.

What a wonderful beginning to this truly beautiful marriage.

I love your style of writing, the vocabulary you use, and the way you describe things but still leave things to the imagination.

Could not stop reading.

One can visualize, quite accurately, every detail.

This book is a delightful continuation of Pride and Prejudice. Darcy and Elizabeth sparkle with humor and wit throughout. I loved that they went through many of the trials that an ordinary husband and wife face, doubts, fears, their first real fight, and hopes for the future. Also, there is a dash of peril and excitement to add a different layer of emotions as Darcy is faced with fears for Elizabeth's life.

This is the first part of the Darcy Saga by Sharon Lathan and I can only say: everybody out there, who loves Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet has to read this book!
It is a most amazing sequel to Pride and Prejudice.
The reader is spendling the first months of the marriage with Darcy and Elizabeth. You can see how they begin their lives as a married couple in Pemberley. Their love is growing and with each passing day Lizzy is feeling more comfortable as Mistress of Pemberley.
Sharon Lathan is a very gifted writer, she loves her characters and knows a lot about the Regency England.
It is so good to find a book, where true love wins and where each page is full of love, hope, loyalty and pure happiness.
And the best: You can continue with "Loving Mr. Darcy" and "My Dearest Mr. Darcy", parts 2 and 3 of the saga!

Cathy from Olympia, Washington, May 10, 2009 (view all comments by Cathy from Olympia, Washington)
In the past I have only commented on books that I would recommend. I love Jane Austen, and have read and enjoyed many books inspired by Pride and Prejudice or Jane Austen, so was excited to see this new series come out. That was, until I started reading it. I have to be honest here-- I only got as far as Ch. 4 before giving up and setting the book aside. Permanently. So perhaps I have no "right" to comment here. And I want to stress that I am no "purist" (though, truth be told, I suppose a purist wouldn't be reading this in the first place!). Anyway, it wasn't the constant "bedroom scenes" that turned me off (ok, maybe it was a bit-- the all too frequent scenes were, well, boring!). What REALLY bothered me is that the book seemed to have nothing to do with Pride and Prejudice, save for the names of the characters. (One wonders whether the author actually read Pride and Prejudice or merely loosely based her version on the 2005 "Knightly/Macfadyen" movie version). For me at least, a much "racier," "Jane-y" and enjoyable rendering is "Mr. Darcy Takes A Wife."
