Mrs. Berdoll has said so many times she is not re-writing P&P, but just continuing the story how she would've liked it! There are many other books out there that I am sure would suit your needs for a chaste or prim and propper storyline. (I am sure they are all very exciting...NOT) Although I loved P&P, Mrs. Berdolls' books I thought were fantastic! I am a total romantic and it brought out all the passion of Darcy and Elizabeth's characters that I felt could not be portrayed in J.A's book because, well hey it was written in like 1813!
I am sure you read the whole book though right? I bet you couldn't wait to find out what happened at the end, and I bet you will buy the next book in the series as well! Personally I can't wait until the 3rd book comes out!

I am appalled at this book. It shows such blatant changes to the characters in the classic Pride and Prejudice. If you are going to write a book like this, then why not start from scratch instead of tainting the beloved characters. Could you not gain attention to it by some other means than using a famous name?

I just finished reading "Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife". What can I say, it was great. Watching the relationship between Lizzie and Darcy blossom and grow, was fantastic. I'm starting the second book, and I hope to find out more about Georgiana and Fitzwilliam's relationship. I don't believe that Georgiana deceived Fitzwilliam into marrying her. I believe he did fall in love with her. How could you not. She is very kind and big-hearted. Great book. I would recommend it to anyone.

I just finished reading mr.darcy takes a wife, and I was a bit confused as to why Georigianna and Fitzwilliam ended up together. I thought Fitzwilliam loved Elizabeth and that he couldn't be with another woman while being in love with her. Was anyone else confused by this?

I will say again these novels are fantastic. I was up until 4am reading them for the third time. Bertoll's depiction of Darcy's devotion is not to be parallelled (except perhaps by Austen herself). Matthew McFadden is my Darcy-dark, rugid, strong, devoted, and intrinsically sexy. I agree with the suggestion to flesh out Fitzwilliem a bit more, because although not as strong a presence as Darcy he is both charming and honorable and deserves a bit more time in the spotlight.

The second book makes Elizabeth Bennet Darcy out to be a stupid fool of a woman who has learned nothing in her marriage to Darcy and how to 'deal' with the likes of Wickham. Her continual distrust and ability to jump to conclusions about him are starting to pale. It would be nice to see her as an effective woman who trusts her husband and works with him instead of against the minute there is a problem.

With reguard to Geogianna and Fitzwilliam...
If I remember corectly, She's not! She tricked him into marrying her by saying she was pregnant by him and that it happened one night when she was nursing him back to health, and I don't think he remembered it, but he was on medication or something like that....

To start, i just want to say that i looove "Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife". I'm reading it for the second time. The second book is fine but not as good as the first. I do have a question though. I am a little bit confussed on how Georgiana got pregnant by Col. Fitzwilliam? Did he really fell in love with he?
