Austenprose Top 10 Austenesque Historical Novels 2013

In this Regency adaptation of Jane Austen’s beloved Pride and Prejudice, the simple truth is proven that sometimes a gentleman never knows his heart until a lady comes along to introduce it to him.  When Mr. Darcy encounters Elizabeth Bennet injured after a fall, his concern for her welfare cracks the shell of his carefully guarded heart and a charming man emerges.   Elizabeth sees an appealing side of him she never believed possible from the stoic, proud master of Pemberley.  They find the simple gentlemanly act of assisting her home will test both Mr. Darcy’s resolve to keep his heart safe and Elizabeth’s conviction that this is the last man on earth she might have ever been prevailed upon to marry.  Soon, falling for Mr. Darcy becomes a real possibility.

This is one of those delightful books that just makes me smile.  Ms. Mackrory truly did a marvelous job with the characters in this book. Falling for Mr. Darcy is sweet and fun and oh-so wonderfully romantic. I highly recommend it as a story to curl up with while enjoying a cup of tea.

This is a really good adaptation of the original story. I really like the direction that the author took this book. I’ve often wondered what would happen if Darcy had done things differently. Mackrory answered my questions and more in Falling For Mr. Darcy

I had to stay up last night (until one in the morning!) to finish this book! I absolutely loved it! I have always been nervous about reading a sequel or ‘what if’ story to my favourite novel Pride and Prejudice, but I am so glad that I did!

The way the different and classic quotes from the novel, film and series were incorporated was very clever!

Mrs. Darcy - Laughing With Lizzie

[I] give praise for the author’s clever plot detour, character authenticity, genuine regency manners, and especially the tastefully rendered romantic eroticism between Elizabeth and Darcy which really drew me into the story right from the beginning.
