Présentation de l'éditeur

In this Pride and Prejudice variation, a despondent Darcy travels to Paris in the hopes of forgetting the disastrous proposal at Hunsford. Paris is teeming with English visitors during a brief moment of peace in the Napoleonic Wars, but Darcy’s spirits don’t lift until he attends a ball and unexpectedly encounters…Elizabeth Bennet! Darcy seizes the opportunity to correct misunderstandings and initiate a courtship.

Their moment of peace is interrupted by the news that England has again declared war on France, and hundreds of English travelers must flee Paris immediately. Circumstances force Darcy and Elizabeth to escape on their own, despite the risk to her reputation. Even as they face dangers from street gangs and French soldiers, romantic feelings blossom during their flight to the coast. But then Elizabeth falls ill, and the French are arresting all the English men they can find….

When Elizabeth and Darcy finally return to England, their relationship has changed, and they face new crises. However, they have secrets they must conceal—even from their own families.

Very entertaining although typos quite irritating. Sometimes too modern in the plots, but overall pleasant reading. Needs a bit more editing

3.0 étoiles sur 5 WRONG TIMELINE FOR THIS BOOK 11 avril 2014
Par Jody - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I enjoyed the book a lot. That being said, it was not in keeping with the timeline of Pride and Prejudice. Putting the story in 1803 would mean that Elizabeth was no older than twelve and Darcy not yet twenty. Also, Darcy is reading Lord Byron's poems to Elizabeth in France, but in 1803 Lord Byron was just turning fifteen years old. On one occasion she has Elizabeth with blue eyes and another time they are brown. There are other examples of sentences with repeated or left out words. The author has the hostilities between England and France nearly on target - the war started on 18 May 1803, but she had Darcy arriving in France during the summer, so the war was already on.

The author should have kept to the proper timeline. Why use 1803 when she could have written it about the correct time? I should have given the book a 5 star rating if not for these issues.

I have read many reviews but these

Actually 3 1/2 stars + 1/2star for price
This is the second new author's work that I have read and enjoyed this week and I have one more to go. I don't know when I've paid $.99 for a full length book that I actually enjoyed. I didn't even read the sample at this price. Amazing!
As unlikely as it was for Darcy and Elizabeth to have an accidental meeting in Paris, I still delight in the idea. How very romantic. When the war broke out, I could not believe that the Colonel would abandon Darcy by saying that there was not room from him in his carriage. It would have made more sense for Darcy to volunteer to stay behind to help Elizabeth get out. Then when they found refuge with a friend, who just happened to be a clergyman, there was little suspense in what would follow. Nevertheless, I found it to be a sweet, romantic love story without being too graphic.
When they finally made it back to England, I grew a bit weary waiting for their 'secret' to be made public. They both also seemed to have a lot of insecurities at times, as to how the other felt. Too many doubts. But in the end, all worked out well. The villains got their due and the others were all happy. The only surprise was Lydia's match.
Good job! Keep 'um coming.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 I need to trust my instincts over Amazon reviews 7 mai 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

I had high hopes for this book, with the relatively high ratings and reviews and an author's bio that gave me reason to believe that she could write. The preview I ordered first was not impressive, yet I went ahead and purchased the book assuming that the reviews-based promise of a compelling story would unfold beyond the previewed chapter.

But I was disappointed in so many ways. The book was obviously not edited, with grammatical and typographical errors. But more than simple copy editing, this book needed desperately a good editor to get the story whipped into shape. The author falls into more than a few traps: tired romance tropes, telling instead of showing, dialogue that does not move the narrative forward, jarring jumps in time and dialogue that sounded far too modern for the early 17th century. But moreover, the entire conflict of her story is based on a completely anachronistic depiction of Darcy.

At risk of spoilers, the original Austen character famously says that "disguise of every sort is my abhorrence" and yet, this version of Darcy spends the entire book unnecessarily disguising his relationship to Lizzy for no other reason than the appearance of scandal. The man who prides himself on his blunt honesty has turned into a liar only so that he and Lizzy can furtively tryst and potentially create a whole new kind of scandal. It makes no sense. And honestly, can we stop with the married Lizzy and Darcy still so insecure about their relationship and feelings? If they're not trying to figure out a way to sneak off together as a married couple and fool their unsuspecting friends and family, they're both agonizing over whether the other *really* loves him/her. Austen wrote that the marriage of Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy was to their mutual benefit. Here, marriage has diminished them to liars who cannot control themselves if their true goal is to avoid the scandal of impropriety.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 More or less satisfactory story hidden underneath typos and grammatical errors 16 avril 2014
Par Legal beagle - Publié sur Amazon.com

I wonder why Ms. Kincaid didn't complete her project by having the book properly edited before she published it. The storyline is engaging and moves along nicely, but the editing (or lack thereof) is distracting. Some of the errors include the use of 'heals' instead of 'heels', 'his' instead of 'her', and double entry of words. As at least one other reviewer noted, transitions are not marked, so in one paragraph the characters are in the study, then in the next paragraph, they're traveling to France!

I would've gladly paid more for the book, but I'm certainly relieved it wasn't more than 99 cents given the lack of polishing. Jane Austen deserves better than half measures if we're going to honor her work and legacy.

Extremely well written , this stands head and shoulders above most of the Pemberley fanfic
now available. Ranks with the top Reynolds and Altman efforts. Do not miss this one!
