Since I first watched the 2005 Pride and Prejudice movie, my life has been filled with wonder. I find it almost impossible to get through a day without asking myself what Mr. Darcy would do. It's an amazingly diverting pastime that now and then leads to a story. Visit me at www.podixon.com to find out more about my writing endeavors. And remember what I always say.

Oh yes, Mr. Darcy would do that!

Missed Opportunities 8 novembre 2010
Par S. Babish - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I enjoyed reading To Have His Cake and Eat It too, but I also feel that the author missed an opportunity to explore the healing process of grief. After the sudden deaths of Mr. Bennett and Lydia, and the scandal that followed, the author missed the opportunity to show how Elizabeth's friendships with Georgiana and Darcy would help heal her broken heart. Instead the author goes though the process of turning Elizabeth into a paid companion to Georgiana within just months of her family members passing. The authentication of the story also has me puzzled. Not only does the author have Elizabeth working merely months after her father and sister's deaths, but also has her dancing at balls (when she should be watching Georgiana and is still in mourning) and wearing gowns that were not black, gray or lavender, which the era dictates of that time period during Elizabeth's mourning period.

I feel that the author rush to finish this novel. Had she/he put a little more effort into the story line the book would have been more engaging. Since the novel seems to be their first effort I give a praise for a good first start, but in the future I would advise that the spend more time researching before setting forth with a new novel.

To Have his cake and eat it too 13 février 2011

I wasnt that fond of the portrait of Darcy as a rake while Elizabeth was under his roof. I also found that him blindly following his cousin in this raking was not in his character. The idea he was keeping a whore at a brothal that looked like Elizabeth was in poor taste. I also dont think Elizabeth would have just let his poor behavior go since it is implied that she was aware of this activities.

To Have His Cake (and Eat It Too); Mr. Darcy's Tale 4 mars 2011
Par J. A. GRACE - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Loved every minute of it! What a wonderful story. -Have already re-read parts - This story had all the bells and whistles - a classic romance. Granted, it took a while for the story to heat up, but when it did, it was magic! Darcy started off as a rake. He and his cousin frequented a local brothel. But soon he was made into the wonderful dashing gentelman we know and love so well. For those of us who enjoy an over amorist Darcy/Lizzy, this is your story. I highly recomment it!

What if Elizabeth was a Paid Companion? 6 janvier 2012
Par Meredith - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
What if Elizabeth never met Darcy in Kent? What if Lydia ran off with Wickham soon after the Netherfield Ball? What if, in a horrific series of events, Lydia, Mr. Bennet, and Mr. Wickham all came to a harrowing and untimely demise?

In this unique and absorbing Pride and Prejudice variation, readers witness the great misfortune and social decline of the Bennet family. Mrs. Bennet's greatest fears are realized as she is forced to remove from Longbourn a mere month after the death of her husband and daughter. In addition, Jane and Elizabeth have no other alternative but to find posts as governesses. Jane accepts a post in Scotland, but Elizabeth has yet to find a suitable situation. Until Mr. Darcy comes along...

Upon hearing of the Bennets' fall from society and status, Mr. Darcy, feeling immense guilt for not exposing Wickham's true depravity, strives to find a way to protect and assist Elizabeth Bennet in her plight. While he is desperately in love with Elizabeth, Darcy vows that he could never marry her because of his duty to his family and Pemberley. And so, indulging in his selfish desire "to have his cake, and eat it too," Darcy engages Elizabeth as Georgiana's companion. Sharing with her his home, his life, and his heart - but not his bed.

Similar to Kara Louise's Only Mr. Darcy Will Do and Abigail Reynolds' Mr. Darcy's Obsession, author P. O. Dixon explores the possibility of Elizabeth being in a diminished living situation when she re-encounters Mr. Darcy. I love these types of variations because Elizabeth is even more beneath Darcy's social status than before! It really does test his love for her! I enjoyed witnessing how Darcy and Elizabeth developed an amicable, albeit atypical, friendship with each other. But what I really loved was seeing their electrically charged disputes and disagreements! So much tension! So much restrained emotions!

One aspect I took great pleasure in was the development of Darcy's character. Since there was no proposal and rejection in Hunsford, Darcy has yet to transform. He is even more insufferably proud and controlling! As you can imagine, this doesn't sit well with Elizabeth. I loved witnessing Darcy's journey through confusion, aggravation, acceptance, dejection, and finally resolve.

I admit I was slightly disappointed that poor Bingley and Jane's fates weren't as happy and fortunate as Lizzy and Darcy's. But I guess everyone can't be gifted a happily ever after! Regardless, I found To Have His Cake (and Eat it Too) to be an imaginative, emotional, and exhilarating variation of Pride and Prejudice. And it looks like there is more in store! Dixon's next novel, What He Would Not Do is a sequel to this one!

NOTE: Readers who wish to avoid intimate scenes and descriptions should be advised of the inclusion of several passionate and amorous scenes in the last fifty pages of this novel. In addition, in this variation Mr. Darcy and Colonel are more rakish and frequent an establishment called Madame Adele's.
