How fun! ( )

What happens when you combine Pride and Prejudice and your average "bodice-ripper-kind-of-book"? You get "Mr Darcy takes a Wife", of course! I thought it was comple(a)tely hilarious, and I didn't take this book very seriously (because, obviously, the only person who could write the perfect sequel to P&P would be it's original author), but it was a nice read.

Not bad for fan lit and oh boy, does Berdoll give us a different perspective of Mr. Darcy! ( )

This took way too long to read. Some parts really made me LOL. Book Club should be fun. ( )

Dedication
For Phil
First words
As plush a coach as it was, recent rains tried even its heavy srings. Hence the road to Derbyshire was betimes a bit jarring. Mr. Darcy, with all gentlemanly solicitousness, offered the new Mrs. Darcy a pillow upon which to sit to cushion the ride.

Book description
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.

This book is a furthering of the story of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice through the Napoleonic Wars. It is written in Jane Austen style, historically accurate, but sexy and somewhat tongue-in-cheek.
