    So, a few weeks ago I discovered that the BBC 6 part series of Pride and Prejudice (1995) was on Netflix, thanks to a thread on a forum talking about how this version is the best (mainly due to the lake scene!!) So re watched the entire thing in 1 day. As you do. Now I watched this when I was 14 and it was on TV and adored it.

So re watched the entire thing in 1 day. As you do. Now I watched this when I was 14 and it was on TV and adored it. Refused to watch the 2005 movie, when that came out, as I judged it inferior due to my inner 14 year old overly romantic self. However, someone on the above mentioned thread, stated they liked and (GASP) preferred the movie version. So, since that was also on Netflix I watched that. Then watched it again. And again!! On a side note, there is a UK ending and a US ending. The US ending that we don't get, has a kiss!! Anyway I apologise to Matthew Macfadyen, since you know, I am sure he has been waiting for just such an apology from yours truly for the past 13 years. But he was a great Darcy. Brought a vulnerability to the role I really enjoyed. Also after my maybe 9th time of watching it I discovered a Tumblr entitled Darcys Inner Struggles which when watched with the movie are just funny. I am easily pleased. However, on the back of this, I decided to try and find some "sequels" to Pride and Prejudice, of which there are MANY! And I started a few, that quite frankly as far as I am concerned stomped all over Lizzie and Darcy and the future I hoped they had, even if eventually they get the HEA. But then I discovered this series. And it has been all I have read pretty much the past month. Now I understand that for Austen Purists, that they are probably an abomination, and not eveyone is going to like them. But in all honesty I have truly enjoyed them. At times Lizzie and Darcy were a bit "we are so in love our love transcends any other love that has come before no one loves as much as we do" but I can overlook that to a certain extent. Overall I just enjoyed the story, enjoyed this authors original characters (Dr Darcy is great) and in my head, this is now firmly fixed as what happened to Lizzie and Darcy post P&P. Oh and we get HEA for Mary and Kitty too.....so yay. And also, it suits following on from the movie, for some reason, I cannot make it follow on from the BBC version and now Matthew Macfadyen is very much MY Darcy and Colin Firth and his lake scene can get tae fuck. The end!

    I won this book from a goodreads giveaway and was really excited because Jane Austen sequels/re-tellings are a special guilty pleasure of mine. The overall story was pretty good. I also liked the development of some of the other characters such as Colonel Fitzwilliam and Georgiana. My biggest issue with this book is the amount of sex going on. I mean, it was REALLY excessive.

I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who enjoy having what goes on behind the Darcys' door spelled out for them...explicitly...and often. I'm not one of those people. I guess I prefer the "less is more" approach.

    Mr. and Mrs. Darcy are still besotted, that much is evident in this fifth in the series by Sharon Lathan. The couple has undergone other troubles in previous installments, but nothing they haven't been able to work through for the benefit of their relationship and growing family. In this installment, Elizabeth gives birth to a second child and all is not well. Oddly, this was one of my favorite twists to the Darcy saga, as there was something very real about the struggles Elizabeth goes through Mr. and Mrs. Darcy are still besotted, that much is evident in this fifth in the series by Sharon Lathan. The couple has undergone other troubles in previous installments, but nothing they haven't been able to work through for the benefit of their relationship and growing family. In this installment, Elizabeth gives birth to a second child and all is not well. Oddly, this was one of my favorite twists to the Darcy saga, as there was something very real about the struggles Elizabeth goes through after her second pregnancy. There is a wedge driven between Darcy and Elizabeth as she tries to heal from her pregnancy, something that Darcy can't simply resolve through sweet endearments or gold coins. This struggle between man and wife, and even children, rang true to reality and gave this romance a bit of needed tension. One thing I was not sure I wanted to revisit in this novel was a conflict with Mr. Wickham. I'm sure I'm not alone in feeling relief when he was tucked away to the north with Lydia in the original novel, feeling that he's safely out of the picture. This time, however, he reappears and has a major grudge against Darcy and his wife, and is more than willing to put many of our favorite characters in danger to get what he wants. Although I dreaded seeing him pop back up again, and he did feel a bit more like a scoundrel this time around, it was a fun twist that sent all our characters scurrying to find a resolution. In the end, it was an exciting bit of action that reminded me why we pick up books--not just to learn, but to escape into a romping good time! As is true to Lathan's writing style, the language flows off the page, adding another layer to the romance between the Darcys. I've come to realize that these are no average retellings of the famous Pride and Prejudice. The love between the couple is ever present, set off by steamy romance that is underplayed by the language and style used in the stories. Trust me though, that the romance is sigh-worthy and sweet all at the same time. To be quite honest, I don't feel "guilty" reading these books, but I do call them my guilty pleasure because of the high escape factor they deliver. If you have not yet read Lathan's previous novels: Mr. and Mr. Darcy: Two Shall Become One, Loving Mr. Darcy, My Dearest Mr. Darcy, or In the Arms of Mr. Darcy, then I would actually recommend you go back and pick up her previous installments. The characters in this fifth book are all pretty much familiar to fans of Pride and Prejudice, but you might not quite catch some of the back story present in this fifth book. As a fan, if you like a nice guilty pleasure, these are that perfect escape!

Darker and more complex than the preceding novels in the series, Lathan tackles deeper elements in Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy’s marriage. Gone are the days of the happy honeymoon period, as Elizabeth struggles to recover from her second pregnancy, creating tension in the Darcy household. Lathan’s latest work definitively shows her growth as an author, chronicling a marriage that has its roots in real-life marital problems that we all face. Because of this, I was drawn into the story and interested where it would lead. I really connected with Lizzy, being a married woman myself, and I happily dove into the pages not knowing what to expect, but excited all the same. After returning from their six month trip to the continent, Lizzy gives birth to their second child, Michael. Days of happiness should be ahead, but unfortunately aren’t, due to Michael being born more than a month early. Lizzy becomes desperate in her care for him and begins neglecting Darcy and their first child Alexander. Darcy becomes angry and depressed due to what he sees as his failing in properly taking care of his family. Lizzy and Darcy soon stop speaking to one another and sleep in separate rooms, causing major issues in their relationship. Luckily Dr. Darcy, Fitzwilliam Darcy’s uncle, begins noticing what’s going on and sees that Lizzy is suffering from what we would call today as post-partum depression. He begins Elizabeth on an herbal treatment to help calm her hormone imbalance and get her back to normal. Lizzy and Darcy begin to mend their relationship and about a month later all is back to normal. By the time Lizzy is feeling herself again they rush off to Meryton for her youngest sister Kitty’s wedding. In the days leading up the impending nuptials, they discover that Lydia and Wickham will be attending the event, making it the first time that the Darcy’s have been in his company since “discovering them” living together in London before they were married. When the Wickham’s arrive, Lizzy is surprised to see that Lydia is dressed in the latest fashions and that neither she nor Wickham look like they are at a loss for money. This begins the cogs working in Elizabeth and Darcy’s minds as to where their money is coming from, and what the Wickham’s are really doing in Meryton…. This is, without a doubt, Lathan’s best book in the saga so far, as Darcy and Lizzy evolve into a more mature couple. Gone are the overtly gushy scenes where they obsessively call each other pet names and tell each other how much they are in love with each other. The Lizzy and Darcy of TTwMD are more secure in their love and affection for each other, and it’s obvious in the change of their manner of speech. The love scenes were the one thing that bothered me about the former books in the series. It became tedious to read them book after book; with TTwMD the love scenes are more sensual and seductive (definitely for mature audiences). The notion of a perfect marriage is also gone, replaced by a marriage that is marred with the occasional conflict and misunderstanding. Watching them struggle with Lizzy’s post-partum, which is a real conflict in many marriages today, turned the book into a truer look into their marriage. Their relationship is therefore much more believable because of these points, making the book more enjoyable for me. The best part about Lathan’s writing is that she’s unafraid to delve into the minds of Austen’s supporting characters. In the first four books we see Jane, Bingley, Caroline Bingley, Colonel Fitzwilliam, Kitty, and Mary all get their own story lines. I was beginning to wonder when we would see more Georgiana Darcy! The Trouble with Mr. Darcy FINALLY takes us deeper into her story and gives her a “happy ending”. Lathan has a great way of introducing characters in small way in her prior books and then expands on their story lines in her later works. It’s a great tactic that ties all the novels in the series closer together, making the story more seamless and streamlined. While The Trouble with Mr. Darcy takes us down a darker road in the marriage of Elizabeth and Darcy, it is in turn very enjoyable to see them work through struggles and evolve. Because she makes us truly care about the outcome of these beloved characters, it’s easy to see why Lathan’s Darcy Saga is so successful. Just as romantic and engaging as ever, this is one sequel you won’t want to miss. Kimberly (Reflections of a Book Addict) http://wp.me/p18lIL-lu

    Okay, so I saw this at the store, it had that Austen-esque cover, and I thought it might be worth a look. I knew it wouldn't be worthy of Austen, and didn't expect it to be, but I had no idea it was actually part of a series of tawdry romance novels that were capitalizing on Austen's already developed characters, without adhering to any of the other devices that make her such a great author.

Instead of relying on wit and charm and intellect, every single chapter (and I'm not exaggerating) contains a vivid love scene. Initially, I liked that behind closed doors Elizabeth and Darcy were madly in love, but once that's been established, I really don't need to be invited to every intimate encounter. Not only does it go against decorum of the time, but quite frankly it gets repetitive and dull, and loses much of its appeal. The only aspect I enjoyed about the book was the way in which the author shows Darcy as a tender and loving father, adoring his children as much as he adores his wife.

    This was a no for me. The style of writing, some anachronistic speech, the storylines that went on about characters I did not care about - even conflicts between odc were not to my taste. It just really seemed like fan fiction.

    I know I commented in one of my early reviews of Sharon Lathan’s books in this series that something has to come along to make life real for Darcy and Lizzy, even while still newlyweds - they’re so in love, nothing can break through that bubble of happiness. But just as life is wont to do, it does eventually burst that bubble, and Ms. Lathan does a good job of handling this couples’ heartache and pain when necessary. But, my heavens, in this book, they get a heavy dose of when it rains trouble, I know I commented in one of my early reviews of Sharon Lathan’s books in this series that something has to come along to make life real for Darcy and Lizzy, even while still newlyweds - they’re so in love, nothing can break through that bubble of happiness. But just as life is wont to do, it does eventually burst that bubble, and Ms. Lathan does a good job of handling this couples’ heartache and pain when necessary. But, my heavens, in this book, they get a heavy dose of when it rains trouble, it pours. Actually, the issues the Darcys go through at this point have the potential to tear them apart. They have matured into loving parents, responsible business owners, and attentive and sensual lovers. Life is about to bring all of that to a halt with circumstances from which they may never recover or be very changed at the very least. Lizzy is about to give birth to their second child, and Darcy is as thrilled with this pregnancy as he was with Alexander, their firstborn. Once Michael arrives, however, Lizzy slowly descends into a hell neither anticipated nor expected. Darcy is beside himself when his usual helpfulness, even his wit and charm, cannot bring the Lizzy he loves back to him. What we know today as post-partum depression throws them into a turmoil all their own, and Ms. Lathan, with her nursing background, is quite successful at getting Lizzy’s downward spiral and all related emotions across to the reader, as well as Darcy’s anguish and fear of the unknown plaguing his wife. In between the heartache there is still happiness for the Darcy family. Lizzy’s sister, Kitty, is getting married and both sides of the clan come together to celebrate. But there is a snake in their midst with the return of George Wickham. Fitzwilliam vows to keep his temper and anger in check when face to face with the snake while also keeping on high alert. Trouble follows in Wickham’s wake and Darcy is bound and determined to keep those he loves safe. And he does try. Goodness does triumph over evil, but evil sure has a way of making itself known and throwing life into havoc at the wrong times. Darcy learns this lessons in spades. And, needless to say, Wickham gets what’s coming to him, as well as another enemy in cahoots with him, and their ends are evilly fun to read. Georgiana is all grown up and has a beau of her own now. I’ve always enjoyed the relationship between Georgie and Darcy; they’re not afraid of showing their love for each other, and Darcy does the big brother thing quite well when her new love asks for her hand. The only little nitpick I have is I want more of the gent. We don’t meet him until approximately three-quarters of the book, and, once introduced, I like him a lot. But what we do get assures us Georgiana will be in good hands. All of the secondary characters we’ve met in previous books show up again here, catching up with each other and reveling in the chaos of family and children. Ms. Bennet is her usual gushing self, and Lydia Wickham takes the cake when it comes to self-absorption. My favorite secondary character is Dr. Darcy, he’s front and center when family needs him and is as funny and loving as ever. Another successful addition to her series for Ms. Lathan. She stays true to her characters no matter the dilemma, in happiness as well as sadness and tragedy. I don’t know if more books are planned, but I look forward to any that are. I’m always very pleasantly surprised and entertained and especially appreciate the emotion with which Ms. Lathan writes. It’s been an honor to read these stories that come from her heart.

I liked the cover a lot. I thought it was gorgeous. I also thought the language was good most of the time. What bothered me? Well I don't think the characters were true to the original. Lizzie isn't really witty so much as every now and then the author tells us that she said this or that snide comment. Most of them are crass or sexual in nature - not clever. For example - I can't imagine Austen's Lizzy saying, "'We want him to be a free spirit.' Lizzie's voice was gay, bordering on vapid. 'And besides, it allows the genitalia to grow freely.'" This was said to Lady Catherine while Lizzy tries not to laugh. Lizzy was clever and witty. She didn't put a lot of stock into society's rules if it got in the way of what needed to be done, but she wasn't the type to discuss something like that just to be shocking. Then you have Darcy who is willing to lie in order to stop scandal. He hides a body and uses his power and connections to have bad men hung while lying about what they did wrong. I can't imagine the honorable Mr. Darcy doing that without even blinking or having any hesitation or problems with his conscience. It was very "ends justify the means" which is a modern way of thinking - not the way of a gentleman like Darcy. It was also strange to me that before marriage Darcy had been so close to Bingley and Lizzie was so close to Jane - and yet in this book they only rarely interact with the Bingleys. More often they are with George Darcy, Georgianna, and Colonel Fitwilliam. The shy Georgiana has undergone a personality transplant as well. She is traveling across Europe without her brother and does little things that seem inconsistent and show her as strong - like punching him in the arm and yelling at him for making him wait too long. Not only does that seem not like the girl in "Pride and Prejudice" but that seems like the actions of a modern girl - not someone in the 1800s. The story would have interesting except it was distracting that nearly every scene was about sex in some way. They were having sex, they were tired from having sex, they were happy they had such a great sex life, they had surprised Lady Catherine a couple times by starting in a public place... they were not having sex and he really wanted to... Maybe they couldn't because the children were there or they had walked in... It was getting to the point where I just wanted some story already. The characters were well-drawn - I just didn't think they were the same people I loved from the original story.

    What I liked: an interesting plot that kept me turning the pages to see how it would all turn out. stayed fairly true to Austen's voice in regards to the time period and setting. loved the introduction of new characters. Could lead to other books featuring Georgiana, whom I've really enjoyed getting to know in this book and would be interested to continue her story. What I wasn't that crazy about: Darcy was too perfect.

What I wasn't that crazy about: Darcy was too perfect. Don't get me wrong I love my Darcy but the man has to have some flaws or else he's plastic (fake). I wanted more conflict between Darcy and Elizabeth so that I could remember why I liked Lizzy Bennett in the first place. Talk about submissive! Elizabeth was just a tad too weak for me. The excessive fawning between Darcy and Elizabeth and too much sex! Egads...did I just say that? Too much hot sex with Darcy??? Yep, I did. Why? Because it just didn't ring true with me. Yes, they're newlyweds (sort of..3 years married) but every time you turn the page they're ripping each others clothes off. I just didn't buy into it even though I really wanted to. Too many details about "stuff" that really didn't add to the story but rather felt like a distraction. Recommend? Yes, I would recommend this one to those Austen fans that want to read anything that brings us closer to Darcy and Lizzy. I myself would read this author again and in fact I will be reading her first book, Mr. & Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy: The Two Shall Become One, soon as I was able to download this free to my Kindle a few months ago.

It was a lot of fun to see what the Darcy's were up to. This is not poorly redone sequel. It was well thought out and true to the characters. I did have a few problems with the book. This book had a lot more sensuality than I would have expected. I had originally planned to have my 14 y/o and 11 y/o daughters read this book, but it will sit on a shelf for atleast a year or 2 before I share it with them. The sex scenes were pretty tame by today's standards- but not what I'd want my 11 y/o old reading. Also, as this book was part of a series, there were occurences in the Darcy's lives that I was unsure of. You can absolutely read this book without having read any of the others, but I wish I had reas these books in order. Having read this sequel, I will look for more by Lathan.

The Darcys have a new son, Michael, but all is not well. Although physically cured, Elizabeth remains mentally sick from the birth, and the illness takes a toll on her and Darcy's marriage. On a happier note, Kitty weds her beloved General Randall Artois, although the attendance at the wedding by George and Lydia Wickham casts a pall over the proceedings. George is as evil and revengeful as ever, and along with another malefactor from the past casts Elizabeth as the pawn in his latest plot against Darcy. Written in her flowing sensual style and with a wealth of detailed descriptions, Ms. Lathan again transports us to the Regency as she immerses us into the joys and fears of her characters. We suffer along with Darcy and Elizabeth during Elizabeth's illness, rejoice in the heady joy of Kitty and Randall's new love, and snarl at Wickham and his dastardly plot as we cheer on Mr. Darcy in his new role as swashbuckler fighting to protect his family. All in all, a story that grips you from beginning to end. Enjoy. ARC provided by Sourcebooks

    There is just something disturbing about Austen-fanfic sex. Seriously. The characters were *almost* in character, and although this is apparently the fifth book in a series I was keeping up okay, with Elizabeth's children and the weird time-skipping storyline that suddenly placed us back in her pregnancy so really it's hard to tell if this ended up being now-sex or past-sex but the point is, it sneaks up on you when you're really not expecting it.

It's jarring enough that I couldn't finish, although that's hardly the only reason (see: story-time weirdness, not quite the same Elizabeth and Darcy we know and love.) A copy of the book was provided through the Goodreads FirstReads program.

    3 stars — went into this with low expectations and was happily surprised. Yes, it’s predictable and unrealistic, but it was fun to follow familiar characters and the descriptions of the people and places they encounter were impressively detailed. The drama kept you reading, but there were a few sections that felt tediously slow. My biggest complaint was the inconsistency in the language used by the author.

The majority of the book was written in the same early 19th century style as Austen used, but every so often, the author would slip back into contemporary speech— some memorable examples include a reference to “girl talk” and a character saying “back me up here!” It wouldn’t stand out so much if these lines weren’t sandwiched between such time period appropriate phrases like “as indeed I asserted!” and “think on it no further”, etc. Having become immersed in this language, it’s jarring for a character to casually toss out “no worries” and be thrown back into present-day reality. Also, the sex scenes were endless. What couple that has been married for three years is having sex every single day? Despite that, the sex scenes weren’t written in a way that made you feel like they were important to the story at all. Just another “oh it’s time for bed let’s have sex” scene. I’m not one who reads a ton of romance novels, but the good ones tend to have some build-up when it comes to sex scenes, and the intimacy supports the story. This seemed almost like “well they haven’t had sex yet this chapter, so let’s have her wake him up with some sex”. Just kinda unnecessary.

    I am fan of Jane Austen’s literature, its exudes sophistication and extreme emotions. Hence, the reason why the book is bought to provide continuation of the actual story as well as closure.

It’s borderline between romance and sexual as extensive focus on sexual intercourse were explained at length. Sometimes, i wonder whether i am reading 50 shades of grey without the sadomasochistic element. This book definitely not a masterpiece of English literature like the original and i can’t said that i enjoy reading it.

    It’s a thinly veiled romance novel, folks. But at least the main characters are married! I liked the story line and it’s fun to speculate on what happens to the Darcys next, but I could have done without the colorful love scenes.

    Loved the story and the plot--it was very interesting. Was not expecting the plethora of explicit love scenes that I skimmed through though. I didn't realise there were others in the saga because I just saw it on the library eBook site. It was fine to pick up where it was though. Loved the story and the plot--it was very interesting.

    I really don't get the hype. This is really bad fanfiction, which is saying something, since I think I've probably read a fanfic with the same plot that's much better. And the sex was unnecessary, really. I really don't get the hype.

    I read all five novels of the Darcy Saga in pretty much one go over the space of a week and as a result I find it easier to critique as a whole set rather than individually so this review covers all the five novels although I will assign a rating to each book: 1. Mr. & Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy 2. Loving Mr. Darcy 3. My Dearest Mr. Darcy 4. In the Arms of Mr. Darcy 5.

Mr. & Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy 2. Loving Mr. Darcy 3. My Dearest Mr. Darcy 4. In the Arms of Mr. Darcy 5. The Trouble with Mr. Darcy First of all, this book is for the hopeless romantics who want nothing more than to revel in detail in Lizzy's and Darcy's relationship post engagement. The forward to the first book unapologetically states that the author's introduction to Pride & Prejudice occurred with the 2005 movie and while she has since then read the original piece she has chosen to utilize the movie adaptation as her starting point so some details referred to are not from the novel but the changes are cosmetic. I do not have issues with the author's level of writing skill so much. There's a fine line for me between where I fall into the story easily enough and where I find the poor writing to constantly intrude on my consciousness as I imagine myself through the story and these novels crossed the threshold fairly easily. That said, I never want to hear the word "stupendous" in my life ever again. Yes, adjectives abound as others have commented, but for some reason stupendousness rose above everything and by the third book it was like itching a mosquito bite; every time I encountered it I was irritated. I am of two minds about the enormous proportion of love-making in the novels. I imagine 70% of the 5 novels put together is composed of nothing but their passionate and undying declarations of love for each other and amorous love-making. That said, there was no scene that felt distasteful or simply pornographic and gratuitous. It was very much newlywed bliss. However, two years on and having sex morning, noon and night in every room, every sheltered field, nearly every day through two pregnancies actually becomes mind-mumbing toward the end. It is quite romantic but the extended sustained pace eventually starts to beggar belief. I would not recommend these books to single people who are bitter about their status as no actual living, breathing human being will ever live up to the expectations or a relationship this book will set for you! It is true that there is very little plot but again the author is not really apologetic as she has set out to chronicle the marriage, which does not always have a plot like every good novel should, but she has tried to inject a sense of drama into each book. The results are a a bit uneven. Whatever parts of the novel are not occupied by love-making are primarily relationship driven. The marriage is chronicled in GREAT detail, with Lizzy getting pregnant in the first novel and not delivering her child until the third! The first two books are quite similar - floating along evenly until the very end when some sort of crisis is reached requiring Darcy to rescue Lizzy. In fact, while I love the level of detail of the locations demonstrating the research, the third quarter of book 2 describing the daily journeying of their holiday nearly bored me until it was time for the 11th hour crisis. The third book probably meandered most of all, with no particular focus of event other than the birth of their first child. It is probably saved by the developing characters involved in their life - the rounding out of Col. Fitzwilliam, Georgianna, the other Bennet sisters (Mary and Kitty) and the exploration of Darcy's uncle, George. This continues into the fourth book, where Kitty particularly begins to bloom into a three dimensional character. It is only the fifth book, however, that actually manages to introduce and to keep tension steady throughout, with classic foreshadowing and plot driven storytelling. The fifth was probably my favourite for this reason. My biggest disappointment, however, is the author's abandonment of Jane Bingley (nee Bennet). While she certainly features as Lizzy's sister, carries on dialogue and even has some intimate conversations with Lizzy, we are never taken into her confidence in the same manner as we are with every other character. Even if only briefly, we become privy to the inner thoughts of Mary at the point of her courtship, and are given a startling insight into Kitty's maturation. We glimpse the evolution of Caroline Bingley. Col. Fitzwilliam's private turmoil is revealed in the 4th book. Even Wickham's own inner twisted logic is shown to us. However, the author never lets us see Jane other than through the eyes of another person and by the time I finished the 5th novel I was left with the feeling that Jane was left as a complete stranger to me. I am frankly shocked at this omission.

    I’m beginning to notice a pattern in sequels to Austen’s classic novel: Elizabeth experiences a tragedy during pregnancy, one of the Bennet sisters marries, Georgiana falls in love, Lydia arrives unannounced at a family function, Catherine de Bourgh will criticize Elizabeth, and Wickham hatches a plan to extract revenge upon Darcy that usually involves placing Elizabeth in mortal danger. And Lathan’s book nearly follows this pattern to a T with Elizabeth experiencing postpartum depression followi I’m beginning to notice a pattern in sequels to Austen’s classic novel: Elizabeth experiences a tragedy during pregnancy, one of the Bennet sisters marries, Georgiana falls in love, Lydia arrives unannounced at a family function, Catherine de Bourgh will criticize Elizabeth, and Wickham hatches a plan to extract revenge upon Darcy that usually involves placing Elizabeth in mortal danger. And Lathan’s book nearly follows this pattern to a T with Elizabeth experiencing postpartum depression following the premature birth of her and Darcy’s second child, Kitty preparing to marry an older man in the army named Artois, Lydia arriving at Netherfield to crash Kitty’s wedding, Lady de Bourgh criticizing the way Elizabeth raises her children, and Wickham hatching a plan to kidnap and, possibly, murder Elizabeth and her eldest son. This book is the fifth in Lathan’s series so I started at the end rather than the beginning, which explains why so many of the characters felt unfamiliar to me. Darcy suddenly has multiple aunts and uncles previously unintroduced in Austen’s novel and one of the uncles, a doctor by the name of George Darcy, features heavily in the story as he explains postpartum depression to Darcy – a very modern diagnosis and understanding of psychology – and administers to both Elizabeth and young Alexander following their ordeal. Unfortunately, these new characters were introduced to the detriment of Darcy and Elizabeth’s friendships with Bingley and Jane. The two couples felt more like reluctant relations than close friends, and I felt rather sad at the suggestion that the foursome would lose their friendship after years of marriage. Seeing how loving and affection Darcy was with his children did lift my spirits, although I felt some aspects of his relationship with Elizabeth in this book did not ring true. I mean, yes, they have sex at nearly every turn (a common plotline in Pride and Prejudice sequels), but their interactions lacked the witty banter I normally associate with these two. Darcy is overwrought in the presence of his uncle at one point because he assumes his wife no longer loves him, which felt callous given Elizabeth’s concern their premature baby might not live and seemed like an unusual display of emotion for someone like Darcy. This is the fifth book in the series and, inevitably, the characters will change as a result of the events in the previous four books so Lathan deserves some leeway, but this book just reiterated to me that I need to move on from reading sequels to Austen’s books. Especially after it fell into the trap of making Wickham into a unbelievable villain. One final thing: the timeline of this book was not always clear. The book opens with an introduction to Elizabeth, Darcy, and their two little boys, Alexander and Michael, only to jump back to the months Darcy and Elizabeth spent exploring the Continent during Elizabeth’s second pregnancy. I had to reread these sections twice to nail down the timeline and very likely would have given up had the book not been the only one I had on hand during jury duty.

This review is spoilery with out giving the whole thing away. As hard as it was to read it was very amazing to read how Elizabeth reacted after the birth of her second child. I loved being able to see how her ailment affected both Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. I enjoyed watching the two of them come back together and I completely understood Mr. Darcy's concern when there was thought that Elizabeth might be pregnant again so soon after getting over her ailment. Unfortunately that wasn't the only threat to Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam. They had a horrible interaction with not one but two villains from their past. I loved seeing all of their friends and family fighting to save the two in danger and I loved to see the determination in Mr. Darcy. I have to say this was a great conclusion some of my most hated characters. I have been begging for Mrs Smyth to be fired for many books. I can't believe how long she survived her job with her hatred towards Mrs Darcy and the children. Even her great dislike for her boss at the end. Her willingness to go against the rules was horrid. I suspected who Mrs. Smyth's lover was long before it was told to us on the page. While I always hate George Wicham, this book and version of him doesn't change my hatred for him. I do feel a little bad for Lydia, she never deserved a husband like George Wickham. I also believe that if George Wickham wasn't taken care of in the way he was he would always be an issue. I greatly enjoying walking through the everyday lives of Mr. and Mrs. Darcy's married life through the eyes of Sharon Lathan. I would love to see more about them and their families. I am very happy that by the end of this book all 5 Bennett sisters are married and seem to be happy. It was interesting to see how far Kitty went with her fiance prior to marriage. While I understand it I find it funny that even though Kitty grew as a person being away from Lydia, but still made the same mistake in a sense as Lydia did with Mr. Wickham, luckily with a much better outcome. This was a definite must read if you have read the previous books.

    This is the final segment in the Darcy Saga series. It is by far the best of the series. The final segments of this book were wild, exciting, suspenseful, shocking, dramatic, treacherous and tearful. The rescue, as we watch the drama unfold, was tense and suspenseful. I was shocked by how the conflict between Darcy and Wickham played out. When the rescue team lead by Colonel Fitzwilliam approached the hideout and charged the assailants, it was like watching a movie on TV.

I was shocked by how the conflict between Darcy and Wickham played out. When the rescue team lead by Colonel Fitzwilliam approached the hideout and charged the assailants, it was like watching a movie on TV. Their military training was very evident as they worked as a team and took charge of every segment of the rescue of Elizabeth and Alexander. There were parts that were difficult to read. The post-partum depression that Elizabeth suffered after the birth of their second child was difficult to read. Elizabeth struggled to deal with her depression thinking she was insane and she pushed Darcy away in her attempts to withdraw from life and from him. He was frantic and didn’t understand what was going on. It took Dr. Darcy to finally work out a solution. The ending was a complete surprise…I did not see it coming. We knew Wickham would try one last attempt to destroy Darcy and all that was dear to him. In the past, Wickham never had sufficient money to do any serious damage. Then he hooked with someone that hated Darcy almost as much as he did. This goes all the way back to book one. The attempts then got really serious. Lydia was even more obnoxious than in P&P, if that is even possible. Justice and / or consequences for bad behavior are given to those that deserve it. It was good to see the snarky housekeeper, from the Darcy House in London, get what she deserved. Kitty gets married, the last Bennet girl, Georgiana falls in love, babies all around for the friends and family of the Darcy’s. It was a good end to the series. I need a rest. I am worn out. I’ve read all 5 books straight through. OK, I did speed read through those places we have talked about in previous reviews, those sex scenes. So skip over them if they bother you. The parts that are really good are worth slugging through scenes you don’t like.

Surrounded by family and friends, they are back at Netherfield to celebrate Kitty Bennet's wedding. The Bennet sisters and their families are together again: Jane & Bingley, Elizabeth & Darcy, Mary & Daniels....and Lydia & Wickham. {Darcy said:} "I command you to avoid him (Wickham) as much as feasible, Elizabeth. And I forbid him to have any interaction with our sons. My opinion has not changed and my decree that the Wickhams have no place in our lives persists." Lizzie knows what Wickham has done in the past and can only agree with her husband. "Wickham," Darcy stated flatly, eyes flinty and piercing his old playmate. "You are welcome to Netherfield as well. Miss Bennet's happiness is of the utmost concern. For her sake you are accepted, but you will be watched, have no fear of that." Wickham inclined his head, cocky smile fixed in place. "No need for threats, Darcy. I come in peace, and only at my wife's urging...." Has Wickham learned his lesson? I had so many favorite passages in this book!! But, I can't quote without revealing spoilers. Superb plot line, lovely phrasing and great descriptions. I really, REALLY enjoy Ms. Lathan's work and highly recommend her! I did enjoy the story.

Sharon Lathan has done an excellent job of taking some of Jane's beloved, as well as the despised characters and giving them slightly different adventures. While this book is the fifth installment in the series, it also makes a pleasant stand-alone read. You are given plenty of background information in the beginning to allow you to jump right into the action. After I read The Trouble with Mr. Darcy I read some of the reviews for the book on Goodreads. I usually wait until I've written my own before seeing what others have said, but this time I veered from my routine a bit. It was interesting to me that some readers were upset that this book wasn't exactly as Jane Austen would write it. They wanted the characters to be and do exactly the same things as the originals in Pride and Prejudice. I am siding with the opposite camp who enjoys a different take on the old tried-and-true Darcy and Lizzie that we all know. The "what-ifs?" are what make Ms. Lathan's stories a lot of fun for me. We still have the familiar, but they're put into situations out of their normal comfort zone. New dilemmas are thrown at them and it is fun to see how they either muck it up or get themselves out of it. The writing is very easy to follow and flows smoothly. I liked the dialogue as it was filled with warmth and wit. The solid foundation of Jane Austen's beloved masterpiece are much in evidence, but Sharon Lathan has added her own touches that allow a completely new audience to fall in love with the timeless characters.

This lushly romantic story takes a turn for the swashbuckling when Mr. Darcy has to confront the villainous Wickham and his own demons at the same time... devoted as he is, what battles within will Mr. Darcy have to face? Review: Where do I begin? There was so much taking place in the fifth instalment of the Darcy Saga that I haven’t got a clue! Firstly, I love the prologue! It sets the scene beautifully but gives no indication of what is to come or what has already occurred- nicely done if I do say so myself. This book has some wonderfully written dialogue, and not just between Lizzy and Darcy. I really love the dialogue that occurs between Alexander and his parents throughout the book as the young Master Alex matures and begins to learn more about the world he lives in. I especially love the dialogue between Darcy and his heir – it’s so sweet. I also really like that Sharon Lathan has made a family for some of the lesser characters in Pride and Prejudice. To be honest, I’m desperate to know if she will one day write the story of Colonel Fitzwilliam and his wife Lady Simone, as I love their story. I also like that Caroline Bingley is now a wife and mother, even if I’m still not in her fan club. Overall, Sharon Lathan has once again done a marvellous job on her latest novel. And once again, I find myself thanking her and her imagination.

    The romantic story line continues. I really enjoyed the drama in this book more than some of the others in this 5 part sequel. First you have the emotional issues that Elizabeth and Darcy have to deal with after they have their second child.

Then there is Kitty's story (short in comparision to the others in the book) followed by Georgiana's admittal of her love and engagement while they await the perfect time to tell her brother. Then more drama!! Two evil characters are back to seek retribution in Darcy's life. When Elizabeth and their firstborn are abducted, Darcy is willing to do anything to get them back home! Thats when we need to the military assistance of Coronel Fitzwilliam to keep Darcy in line! I give this book a 3.5 versus a 5 for the following reasons - 1) the love live of Elizabeth and Darcy are described in way too much detail (we are too privy to their personal affairs) 2) I don't know if Wickham would really be that bad... would he be willing to rape and even kill? We are all know him to be a loose, gambling, mischevious man but how far would he really go?? & lastly 3) why ruin a perfectly cute love story between 2 young people with pre-maritial relations, not at all likely considering how their characters were written. All in all a good Sharon Lathan read with a bit of drama!

Although I liked parts of it there were also others that could have been left out...but that's just my opinion. *****SPOILER ALERT***** I loved the way that the author dealt with postpartum depression. It's not only the mother that suffers but truly the family. I've been there and I know the feelings, and sometimes the lack of them that can turn your life upside down. For that I commend the author, she dealt with it very well. The anger and confusion were all there. I enjoyed Kitty's romance with Artois. Found it to be very sweet and sensual. And it was also nice to see all the sisters together again for her wedding. I found the Darcy's trip abroad to be a waste of time. I didn't care for the relatives and really couldn't understand what it had to do with the rest of the story. What really had me grumbling and complaining was the whole abduction/revenge came about. I understood the motive, but couldn't wrap my mind around it. But I guess that's the "crazy" Ormon for you. One good thing about it, was that Mrs Smythe is out. Woot! Never cared for her. 3.5/5
