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....

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.
