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?
In To Conquer Mr. Darcy, instead of avoiding Elizabeth after his ill-fated marriage proposal, Mr. Darcy follows her back to Hertfordshire to prove to her he is a changed man and worthy of her love. And little by little, Elizabeth begins to find the man she thought she despised, irresistible....

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.

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.

I don't think true Jane Austen fans would approve!

I wouldn't recommend this. How the author manages to use and twist the words of Jane Austen, almost word for word it seems at times, into this concoction of rubbishy nonsense and gets it published I don't know. Parts of Jane Austen's story are taken out of context and woven into the mishmash of Abigail Reynold's own story to make it make sense as something original, while still retaining it's connection with Pride and Prejudice. But it really isn't worth the time out of your life; you'd do better to get something written by Elizabeth Aston as she too does a Darcy collection. As for Mr Darcy he's positively sleazy and Lizzie Bennet isn't much better! The obviously American narrator however does her best to put on a strange hybrid of an English accent. As for this book I wouldn't recommend this to anyone and I don't think true Jane Austen fans would approve!

Reynolds repeats herself again and again

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I would cut out the frequent desriptions of the sexual intercourse between Elizabeth and Darcy. Once "encounter" is more than enough in each book. I would shorten the narration by cutting out these repetitions and devote more time and space to investigating the psychology of the characters in greater depth.

Would you be willing to try another book from Abigail Reynolds? Why or why not?

I have now read/heard several of this authoress's books... She is beginning to repeat herself too much across books too.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

She might have been more relaxed ; she seems to make too much of an effort to speak with a British accent which bestows a stilted air on the whole performance. Sometimes she "hyper corrects" her pronunciation and places the wrong tonic accent on some words.

A passionate Darcy and Elizabeth

Would you consider the audio edition of To Conquer Mr. Darcy to be better than the print version?

I've read this book and listened to the audio, of couse it's lovely to read and imagine the story yourself, but the narrator did a great job with this story

What did you like best about this story?

It's not quite the original Darcy and Elizatbeth in this story, they're a little more modern and much more passionate. I love getting more insight in to each character and their feelings.

Read more than once. Love it!

I have already reviewed this book on Amazon so I won't do it again. I will however review the reader.

This is the second audio title I have listened to by Elizabeth Klett and I must say she is one of my favourite narrators to date. No silly deep voices for the male parts or extra high pitched annoying voices for other characters yet she still manages to change her tone enough that you know which character is speaking. She is very pleasant to listen to.
