Publisher's Summary

What if...
Instead of disappearing from Elizabeth Bennet's life after she refused his offer of marriage, Mr. Darcy had stayed and tried to change her mind?
What if...
Lizzy, as she gets to know Darcy, finds him undeniably attractive and her impulses win out over her sense of propriety?
What if...
Madly in love and mutually on fire, their passion anticipates their wedding?

One of my all time favourites

What did you love best about To Conquer Mr. Darcy?

This was one of the first Romance books I read. I was obsessed with Pride and Prejudice in High School.
I love the "what if" idea. That Darcy goes back to Hartfordshire and tries to convince Elizabeth to marry him,
They become engaged before she takes her trip to Pemberley.
And Elizabeth becomes part of the plan to make Wickam marry Lydia.


What was one of the most memorable moments of To Conquer Mr. Darcy?

I really loved the the courtship scenes, and when Darcy tells Elizabeth, that even though they are not yet married by the church, he feels she is his wife. So sweet.


What about Elizabeth Klett’s performance did you like?

I really loved her interpretation


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Not so extreme, I just really enjoyed it.


Any additional comments?

It's really worth the credit.

P&P Variation - Overstepping Just "A Bit"

Where does To Conquer Mr. Darcy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Having read this book many times in hard copy, I already knew I loved the story. The narrator, Elizabeth Klett, did a very good job and made it an enjoyable listen.


What other book might you compare To Conquer Mr. Darcy to and why?

I read quite a few P&P variations, and have read all of Abigail Reynolds books. It's not possible to compare it to another book other than other P&P variations, and Abigail's books rank right up there with others of the best of the genre.


What does Elizabeth Klett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Since I have read the book many times before listening to the audiobook, there could only have been a down side to her performance. I was happy that she did a good job and did not make the book more difficult to finish. Many times I have stopped listening to audiobooks because the narrator is terrible. Ms. Klett is quite good. I liked her performance better than the lady who did the other Abigail Reynolds book at audiobooks.


If you could take any character from To Conquer Mr. Darcy out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Mr. Darcy, of course, because he is Mr. Darcy and you can't get much better than that.


Any additional comments?

Abigail takes Darcy and Elizabeth's romance quite a bit further than the acceptable courtship niceties of the Regency Age; and this probably bothers many purists, but for those of us who like to believe Darcy and Lizzy as real people would have many of the same physical and emotional desires as any normal, redblooded, 20 somethings, anticipating their wedding vows can be accepted with a bit of a wink. I did feel, however, feel that Lizzy's actions before officially becoming "engaged" was a bit too much for our dear heroine. She had too much sense to let herself be carried away to that extent before she had a formal engagement. But then, it's Darcy, so who could resist?

I am not opposed to Lizzy and Darcy having normal sexual urges, but Lizzy accepting it so readily BEFORE they were officially engaged, and so many times, was just a tad stretching it for me.
