What readers are saying
Some parts are hilarious and some a walk on the wild side for Austen characters. Curl up and enjoy
Tells the tale I always wanted to hear...how the Darcys lived happily ever after...
The only fault I found with this book was that it ended.
Every woman wants to be Elizabeth Bennet Darcy-beautiful, gracious, universally admired, strong, daring and outspoken-a thoroughly modern woman in crinolines.
And every woman will fall madly in love with Mr. Darcy-tall, dark and handsome, a nobleman and a heartthrob whose virility is matched only by his utter devotion to his wife.
Their passion is consuming and idyllic-essentially, they can't keep their hands off each other-through a sweeping tale of adventure and misadventure, human folly and numerous mysteries of parentage.
Hold on to your bonnets This sexy, epic, hilarious, poignant and romantic sequel to Pride and Prejudice goes far beyond Jane Austen.
"[W]hile there have been other Pride and Prejudice sequels...this one, with its rich character development, has been the most enjoyable." Library Journal
"Austenites who enjoy the many continuations of her novels will find much to love about this wild ride of a sequel, especially Berdoll's depiction of the enduring, strong love between Elizabeth and Darcy." Booklist
This sexy, epic, hilarious, poignant and romantic sequel to Pride and Prejudice is not for Jane Austen purists. Self-published in 1999 as The Bar Sinister, this sequel continues the story of Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy through a sweeping tale of adventure.
