Présentation de l'éditeur

Fitzwilliam Darcy is a man with a great many secrets to keep, one involves his sister, and the other involves his heart. The problem is, he cannot just keep the secrets. They demand attention, and action, and in hopeless times, a good man does not always think things through, even when he is desperately trying to do the right thing for the two most important women in his life.

In Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, Fitzwilliam Darcy arrived in Ramsgate before his sister could leave with George Wickham. Things are not so easily remedied in this two-volume variation.

This story contains scenes of a mature nature between a happily married couple.

Biographie de l'auteur

Linda Wells worked for years in the environmental engineering world until she traded her career as a geographer for one as a mom to a challenging and really great son. After seeing the 2005 production of Pride and Prejudice, she bought a copy of Jane Austen’s novel and fell under the spell of her unforgettable characters and story. Eventually, a story of her own started nagging at her until she finally wrote it down. It has become a wonderful and rewarding experience to stretch her imagination, and with ideas for new stories still coming, she hopes to write many more. Ms. Wells is the author of Chance Encounters, Fate and Consequences, Perfect Fit, and the Memory series.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Imperatively unrecommendable! 9 mars 2014
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I have read a number of Pride & Prejudice spin-offs, most of them with pleasure and amusement and had really looked forward to liking this one. Disappointment is to put it mildly. This story has almost no bearing to the original except in the usage of the names Darcy, Bennet, etc. The author attempted to totally change the outlook, behaviour and characters; laudable try, but it did not work here. Poor grammar, use of modern slang terms, dialogue that is at the same time vulgar and silly. Lurching from one scenario to another, trying desperately to keep the pace; the plot, if so it can be called, is weak and unbelievable mainly because of the poor quality of writing. As for "scenes of a mature nature".....they amount to some gropings and of the "wink, wink and nod" cathegory. Is this a severe critic? Perhaps, but it is personal and sincere. I do generally try to give positive write-up and do encourage writers. At €4.69, this costs relatively more than other i books. Money better spent on better books.

Very enjoyable, romantic, amusing, witty reading. One of the best "what if" of P&P I've ever read. Look forward to read volume n. 2!!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 "Trust Me?" Darcy Asks and Lizzy's "Yes" Leads Them on the Adventure of a Life Time 28 mars 2012
Par Sophia Rose - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Linda Wells has become an auto-buy author for me when it comes to her fantastic Pride and Prejudice 'What-if' novels. Each book has taken a different unique approach to the original story.
In this one, she asks: What if Wickham had succeeded in seducing Georgianna and what if he had help? What if Darcy came up with an incredible, shocking plan to rescue his sister and family's reputation from ignominy? What if Mr. Bennet actually supports the idea of Lizzy being married to Collins for the sake of keeping the estate in the family for secret reasons?

She takes those questions and answers them in an exciting, poignantly romantic way that leads in utterly new directions to get the answers.

The plot is well done and kept me turning the pages breathlessly in certain parts, smiling in others, and tear filled eyes were the result of yet other parts. Once in awhile the pace would drag a bit in Darcy and Lizzy's myriad of tender moments, but they are so good together and for each other that I would not go so far as to say it got boring- just slow occasionally.
The plot has many story lines to follow and does amazingly well not confusing the reader. I like getting several points of view including the villains (and I do not just refer to Wickham).

There are wonderful new characters blended with the old. This tale also assumes that Darcy and Georgie have close Darcy relations in their father's younger brother and his family. There is a larger group of Fitzwilliam relations than just the De Bourghs and Colonel Fitzwilliam from the original. This story includes the Colonel's family too. But more relations does not mean more support for the 'pollution of Pemberley' that Lizzy represents to Lady Catherine, Judge Darcy, and Lord and Lady Matlock who all scheme to marry Darcy and Georgie into their families for their own gain. My favorite new character so far is Darcy's cousin, Samuel Darcy and the character that I most pitied was Albert Fitzwilliam, the Colonel's older brother who wrecked his own life with dissipation. I like the deeper character sketch that Col. Fitz is given. He is so larger than life- amusing, but yet dutiful and loyal. Oh, and I just loathe Wickham in this one. The Bingleys, Hursts, and Bennets are all true to form bringing the most comical relief.

I cannot praise this book enough though I should warn any Austen purists out there that this is probably not the book for you. And for those who blush easily, Darcy and Lizzy are a very passionate couple- get me?

Now, thankfully I was bright enough to buy v. 2 at the same time so I do not have to wait to see what happens next.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another must read by Linda Wells 27 février 2012

It is no wonder that Linda Wells is my favorite JAFF author. You cannot help but love her take on Darcy and Elizabeth. Their relationship is filled with passion, trust and understanding. I love how united D&E are under Linda's direction. There are very few moments of misinterpretation. The disagreements and squabbles are reserved for others. Imperative begins with Darcy asking Elizabeth to trust him. Going on instinct she says yes. From this point on volume 1 becomes a story of mystery, intrigue, devotion and danger. If you liked (loved) her other books then this will certainly not disappoint.

I will caution those who are not comfortable with intimate relations. Darcy and Elizabeth are a married couple with a healthy, passionate sex life.

I love all Linda Well's book series and this was no exception. She pen's such juicey, long stories. She goes off in many different directions usually not traveled. She changes some of the characters personalities a bit to mix things up. In her "Memory" series I felt she deviated too far on some of the characters pensonalities, on this one I thought it was well done. She gave Wickham a small amount of humanity. Some reviewers have complained that Linda's stories are too long, but that is one of the many things I love about her books. It gives her space to really develop her characters and plot.

Darcy is not in time to stop the disaster with Georgiana and Wickham in this outing, she must pay the price for her elopement in this story. She learns to take responsibility for her own actions. Darcy asks Elizabeth to "trust me" and against all common sense she does. There are new and interesting characters in this story that I liked also. There are the usual Darcy and Lizzy cant keep their hands off each other scene's, but not way too much. Some authors really over do this for my taste. Elizabeth is portrayed a little too sweet here, but all in all I thought it a great story. I'm hoping Georgiana and a certain cousin will get together in the future.

Linda is writing a third book for this series and a fourth for the "Memory" series, I cant wait!

Highly recommend for the P&P fanfic lovers!

Linda Wells is one of my favorite P&P authors and in IMPERATIVE (volumes one and two) she delivers even more of the great storytelling I have learned to expect from her previous works. Ms Wells does a masterful job of introducing believable characters, historically credible circumstances and events and natural, sparkling dialogue. Lizzy and Darcy are spot on! Her tale of the challenges, obstacles, tragedies and delightfully humorous events faced by the newlywed Darcys is highly entertaining! I am currently rereading IMPERATIVE for the third time since its publication and marveling at the excellence of this work. Clytie Koehler, author of Lizzy's Choice and Lizzy Bennet's Diary (volumes one and two).
I look forward to Ms Wells' next production with happy anticipation!

After reading Linda Wells' Memory series, I was anxious to read something new by her. Last year when I found out she had a new series, out I was cautious to start it so soon. One reason was because anytime I read any JAFF, I fall into the Regency world and it is difficult for me to get out of it. Secondly, Linda Wells' stories are so long, that they take some dedication to get through them. With my Nursing School schedule, it his hard to dedicate so much time to reading them. But alas I was missing my Pride and Prejudice friends and finally gave in and purchased both books.

I have to admit that the story started off on a kind of weird note. I beginning did not flow, and it just immediately jumped right in to to Darcy kissing Lizzy at Netherfield, and Lizzy immediately agreeing to marry him, since she was "compromised." Yes it started the action off right away, but I would have liked to seen a little more build up in the beginning. Mr Darcy, is eager to marry right away, since in this version, he was not able to stop Wichkam and his sister in time at Ramsgate, and his sister is now with child. He is hoping to marry right away and raise his sister's baby as his own.

Linda Wells' introduces us to some new characters, that I felt enhanced the story beautifully. But one thing that she does in this book, which she had also done with her Memory series, she dampens the relationship between Mr. Bennet and Lizzy. I believe that is one relationship that you can not alter. It was an enjoyable 791 pages. Not my favorite JAFF, as that lies with the Darcy Saga by Sharon Lathon. But I am eager to start the 2nd book.
