After reading Falling for Mr Darcy by KaraLynne Mackrory I began to research some other variations. Falling for Mr Darcy Review I never thought I would enjoy variations of my favourite novel, but I really enjoyed it and so I decided to look for some others.
I am currently reading one called The Houseguest by Elizabeth Adams and I will post my thoughts when I am done. So far, it is really good.
"When Georgiana Darcy comes to Netherfield to visit her brother, she becomes friends with a neighbour, Elizabeth Bennet. After Miss Darcy has returned to London, she invites her new friend to stay with her at the Darcy home in town ... unbeknownst to Mr. Darcy.
Will this change in circumstances lead to a change in affections?"
After a lot of research (there are a lot of variations out there, a lot of them not clean...) I have found 4 which I have bought and are now waiting on my shelf to be read. The 4 I selected are...
Darcy's Voyage by Kara Louise
"A Tale of Uncharted Love on the Open Seas
In this enchanting and highly original retelling of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Elizabeth Bennet sets out for the new world aboard the grand ship Pemberley's Promise. She's prepared for an uneventful voyage until a chance encounter with the handsome, taciturn Mr. Darcy turns her world upside down.
When Elizabeth falls ill, Darcy throws convention overboard in a plan that will bind them to each other more deeply than he ever could have imagined. But the perils of their ocean voyage pale in comparison to the harsh reality of society's rules that threaten their chance at happiness. When they return to the lavish halls of England, will their love survive?"
Only Mr Darcy Will Do by Kara Louise
"Her worst fears come true...
After her father's death, Elizabeth Bennet goes to work as a governess. Little does she know the Willstones are social acquaintances of the Bingleys and the Darcys, and Elizabeth finds herself once again drawn into Mr. Darcy's orbit. To make matters worse, Mrs. Willstone's sister sets her sights on Mr. Darcy. With Elizabeth's social status even lower than it was before, she knows she must abandon all hope of Darcy renewing his proposals, even as she begins to see him in a completely different light..."
The Journey by Jan Hahn
An Arranged Marriage by Jan Hahn
I am looking forward to reading all of these and I have one more I am planning on buying, the second variation from KaraLynne Mackrory coming out sometime this April...
Bluebells in the Mourning (by KaraLynne Mackrory)
"Jane Austen’s beloved Pride and Prejudice is re-adapted in this regency tale of love in the face of tragedy. Mr. Darcy is thwarted in his attempt to propose to Elizabeth Bennet at Hunsford when he encounters her minutes after she receives the sad news from Longbourn of her sister’s death. His gallantry and compassion as he escorts her back to Hertfordshire begins to unravel the many threads of her discontent with him. While her family heals from their loss, Darcy must search London for answers – answers that might bring justice, but might also just mark the end of his own hopes with Elizabeth. Is it true that nothing can be lost that love cannot find?"
Has anyone read any of these? Or does anyone have any other suggestions for good ones? :)
Your affectionate friend,
