    I did read that story and loved it. Since I borrowed it from KU now is the time to “own” it. Thanks for sharing.

    Oh yes Linda, this is definitely one of my Darcys. I had read the book a number of times but this series is what kickstarted ny obsession!
    I really can’t count the number of times I have watched this. I watch it every time it is on tv and have 2 copies of the DVD(in case one wears out 😂)
    This is definitely the best series the BBC has done.
    Thank you for choosing Colin and I loved your book as I did all your others. 😍

      I do love this montage of our dear boys together. In My Mr. Darcy & Your Mr. Bingley, Bingley has a shade more spine that in canon—just enough to want to know for himself how Jane feels. Jane as more spine, too, and a little power goes to her head!

    I have talked about who “Darcy” is for me in other blogs. The characteristic I love most about Darcy is his willingness to change without the incentive of knowing Elizabeth will then accept his hand in marriage. Few men I know would do so.

      I agree! But rare is the man who will change simply because it is the right thing to do. Jane Austen may have invented the only one!

    Sounds like the droll sense of humor I love in Darcy!

      And at this point, some reluctance to admit he’s wrong without it becoming a competition!

      Never sure my comments register with Rafflecopter–very confusing!

        Hi Regina, Did you log in to the Rafflecopter app above?

    I too have two copies in case one wears out or I have to loan one to someone else! Colin is quintessential Darcy, as everyone knows. (Word with 4 syllables.) Thanks for the laughs and heat in your books, Linda.

      Of course I agree about Darcy, but do you think Crispin Bonham-Carter is the best Bingley? I do. He’s not a guffawing idiot, not silent and dopey. He plays Bingley with just the right mix of insecure deference and eagerness to please.

        I agree, Linda. He isn’t a caricature of Bingley, rather, the gentle truth of the character Austen wrote.

    I do so like a Darcy with a clever sense of humour!

    Thanks, everyone! My imagined letter to Bingley would have been sent pre-Hunsford, so rather than be truly humble, Darcy nearly competes for who was the most wronged, when I was the one withholding information from a friend. I think he needs one of Lizzy’s set-downs!

    Well, I have three copies of P&P ‘95, and I love Colin Firth and Crispin B-C in that adaptation, but the Bingley in the Matthew M version makes me laugh out loud. And Linda’s witty writing is for anyone who ‘dearly loves to laugh.’

    I love the 1995 version and have two copies of it. Of course, you know it is my favorite anyway! Enjoyed your post, Linda, and I loved the book! 🙂
