A Forced Marriage When Elizabeth Bennet S Reputation Is Ruined, Mr Darcy Feels Honor Bound To Marry Her The Problem Is, Elizabeth Despises Him And Darcy Won T Let Her Go Darcy S Folly Is A Pride And Prejudice Variation Novella Set In The Regency EraDarcy's Folly: A Pride and Prejudice Variation

I ve been half in love with Mr Darcy since I was twelve, although I ll admit, the first time I read Pride and Prejudice, I was totally taken in by Wickham I was stunned when Mr Darcy proposed I guess I was reading too quickly to catch all the hints , and evenstunned when Wickham turned out to be a jerk But by the end of the book I was completely smitten by Darcy I am still smitten.The best part about writing Jane Austen Variations is that I can relive those moments of discovery and watch Elizabeth fall in love with Darcy onetime.All my books and short stories are standalone stories, each with a slightly different Darcy and Elizabeth.

    This is a short novella with a forced marriage scenario between Mr Darcy and Elizabeth The tale begins at Hunsford Elizabeth is reported as missing the morning after Darcy s disastrous proposal When Darcy learns this from his valet, he immediately goes out to search himself and finds her on the ground with an injured ankle He appears carrying her in his arms, and everyone can see that neither have changed clothes since the previous night Darcy was up writing his letter, while Elizabeth ha This is a short novella with a forced marriage scenario between Mr Darcy and Elizabeth The tale begins at Hunsford Elizabeth is reported as missing the morning after Darcy s disastrous proposal When Darcy learns this from his valet, he immediately goes out to search himself and finds her on the ground with an injured ankle He appears carrying her in his arms, and everyone can see that neither have changed clothes since the previous night Darcy was up writing his letter, while Elizabeth had fallen during a walk the previous evening and couldn t return to the parsonage because of her ankle A notorious gossip visiting Rosings is among those who sees them, and Darcy realizes the only way to save Elizabeth s reputation is to state that they are engaged This enrages Elizabeth, who continues to insist that she will not marry him.There is plenty of JAFF with a somewhat similar premise and parts of the plot are easily predicted, but generally this is nicely executed and well written The conversation between Elizabeth and Lady Catherine goes in another direction than canon The Wickham storyline also proceeds differently, with an unusual resolution for Lydia s situation It doesn t take long to read, and it s a pleasant story

    Darcy s FollyThis was a fun read by Jane Grix, her writing is always clever, a little mix of love with a few trials thrown in, but she has it all figured out for us,in a nice well written package in the end She always delivers This story was an accidental compromise of Lizzie and Darcy with him determined to win her over and Lizzie is in full blown impertinent mode Good read for everyone, I m sure.

    2.5 Stars Okay enjoyable short read.

  6. says:

    Short, but pleasant It is almost an abstract of JA rewrites.

  7. says:

    This was a sweet, clean romance that I enjoyed very much Our couple have struggles to overcome, as usual, but this story moves quickly toward the HEA.

  8. says:

    This was a quick read that was entertaining enough, but was a bit ridiculous at times It s another story where an accident leads to a scandal forcing Darcy and Lizzy to marry earlier than in the original Lizzie is less rational andangry, Darcy is less brooding and the sense of propriety and control peppered with wit that is so much a part of Austen, is sadly missing It feels very modern Still, not a terrible read but isn t one of the better JAFF books I have read.
