Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

A number of broken-hearted characters from Jane Austen’s best novels are thrown together by the vagaries of fate, and all manner of unwise decisions are taken at this vulnerable time. But then their past creeps up upon them – and what is there to do but face it, and hope that their convoluted paths will finally lead them to their proper place?

“Elizabeth… Elizabeth… Elizabeth…” he murmured against her lips, her skin, her hair, and then her lips again. “I cannot forsake you! I cannot! I cannot lose you! I cannot bear to think of a life without you – ‘tis not worth living, ‘tis but a slow death! I cannot lose you! I beg you, do not send me away again! I love you! Elizabeth, I love you!”

Friends, rivals, foes, wrong choices and a duel – Fitzwilliam Darcy’s life is never dull! ‘The Subsequent Proposal’ – a story that is primarily about him – follows Mr. Darcy in his struggles to decipher the troubling enigma of Elizabeth Bennet’s feelings – and to correct the worst misjudgement of his life…

When I first read the plot of this book I could not believe how perfect it was!

All I could think was how I never though about it myself, as it has the characters from my 2 favourite Jane Austen books: Pride & Prejudice and Persuasion, and getting them together the way Joana Starnes did makes perfect sense!

The idea could not be better! After Elizabeth's refusal in Hunsford, Darcy meets Miss Anne Elliot and believes she would be the perfect wife for a marriage based on contentment. She is amiable, kind, intelligent and her family is perfect for Darcy's family standards. On the other hand, Captain Wentworth meets Elizabeth Bennet and also believes she could be a perfect wife if he can not have Anne's love.

At a certain point the four of them meet and they are forced to face they true feelings. Even though Anne appears to be (in the eyes of society) perfect for Darcy, she is obviously not his match. She is not his other half, and the same applies for Captain Wentworth and Lizzy.

The book is extremely well written, and it's a truly passionate book, with deep feelings and no excessive dramas or incredibly bad villains. It's a believable story, perfectly situated in the era. There are no lack of propriety and that does not prevent us from reading a truly romantic story.

We read the book from Darcy's perspective and for me, one of the best things about the book is that Darcy is not seen as the only one at fault. The author really understands develops both characters just like Jane Austen created them and not as a version of them as many authors do. Unlike many books, Darcy is not see as someone full of faults that changes completely just to please Elizabeth.

Vraiment très emballée par ce roman. J'ai trouvé l'intrigue ingénieuse, qui sortait un peu des sentiers battus en entrecroisant l'histoire de P&P avec celle de Persuasion !!!! On retrouve Mr Darcy, Elizabeth & consort, confrontés dans un bel imbroglio amoureux avec Anne Elliott et le Capitaine Wentworth. Miam ! Il y a de la tension et de la rivalité...
C'est vif, plutôt bien écrit, et le roman se déroule intelligemment.
Franchement, j'ai adoré !!!!!!!!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Pride & Prejudice linked to Persuasion ! 14 octobre 2013
Par Dave in Oklahoma - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This is an interesting cross-over novel, linking Pride & Prejudice to Persuasion - how can a Jane Austen fan resist? Darcy goes on such a roller coaster ride of lows and highs - and drags everyone else along whether they want to go or not!

Ms Starnes has created a novel significantly different in style and plot from her previous novel. You spend a lot of time in Darcy's thoughts and emotions - how ever is he to escape soul-sucking quagmires of his own making? How is he to reconcile his duty, honor, and heart? What does Festina Lente mean and why does Darcy care? How can the chief characters of Persuasion be interlinked with those of P&P with heart rending results? Do the characters end up as we are comfortable with ...or... does the unthinkable happen? [ added Nov 3: Not to worry - Joana does end the book like the original P&P. Dave ]

I have thoroughly enjoyed this book and it is definitely worthy of being in my keeper collection!

If you read the Prologue on a trial basis, I believe you will want to own this novel!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Bona-Fide 5+ Stars! 18 octobre 2013
Par Debbie B. - Publié sur Amazon.com

I have reread Pride & Prejudice too many times to count; I've read Persuasion about 3 times. Happily, the third time was within the past month so the timing was perfect when I stumbled across this book. All of the characters are very true to Jane Austen's originals, and the concept is just brilliant.

Persuasion's Anne Elliot becomes engaged to Darcy a few months after Elizabeth has jilted him. Their agreement to marry is based on the discovery that they're both nursing broken hearts and, since they'll never have their hearts' desire and they're compatible, they might as well face the future together. The book is told from Darcy's point of view, and the reader might guess the eventual conclusion (though Darcy can't) once he becomes aware that a certain Captain Wentworth is now courting Elizabeth. Even with foreknowledge of how things will likely end, the journey to get there is a fascinating and unpredictable mixture of both books. Poor Darcy's angst and internal monologue as he watches the other couple together is comical but still gut-wrenching. He and Wentworth argue heatedly over who's going to deal with Wickham, who comes close to getting the upper hand over them both. Considering how suave and smooth many P&P fan fiction books make Darcy, I loved that THIS Darcy gets tongue-tied and has trouble expressing himself. He's refreshingly human and flawed but trying his best to do what's right for Elizabeth, Georgiana, Anne and himself. Some readers might feel that Elizabeth doesn't appear often enough, but she is constantly present in Darcy's thoughts, and the scenes in which she appears are poignant and filled with emotion - mostly Darcy's, because his own yearning is palpable but, aside from watching her eyes and hearing her words, he doesn't have a clue as to what she's thinking.

Along with having a great concept, Ms. Starnes has the writing chops to deliver very Regency-esque prose, and she builds up the dramatic tension to a very satisfying climax and conclusion. I'd give this more than 5 stars if I could. What a joy to read such excellent fan fiction!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 What an intense Mr. Darcy 23 octobre 2013
Par Lisa - Publié sur Amazon.com

While I wasn't sure I'd like the mixing of Austen's characters (I am loyal to P&P's characters) and I was worried there wouldn't be enough Elizabeth, I was swept up in Mr. Darcy's thoughts and emotions. The pain, heartache, sense of obligation, inability to resist his feelings all rang true to life. To my mind, too many of the variations focus on the details of clothing, furnishings, and scenery. I love the dialogue and the interactions. And even though this was mostly Darcy's internal life, the language was powerful and active, capturing the intensity of his feelings and there was just enough dialogue that perfectly resonated with Austen's characters. I loved it!

I was amazed that I fell for it! Hook line and sinker. I truly feared that the wrong people might end up together! What a fun twist on some of my favorite books by Austen! I have to admit that one of her strengths as an author is getting the reader to truly FEEL what the character is feeling. These poor people are so alive that their hearts are on their sleeve and we can see each and every beat, skipped beat, pitter-pat, and can even see it flush with heat in the ever so passionate kisses or touches! I say passionate but it was all so tactfully PG. It was completely clean but yet I just knew how my lips were warm or my heart fluttered at her descriptions. I think it is a real talent to be able to write clean romance that inspires the reader to feel how deeply their attraction is without actually writing any filth or anything sexual. We all know that Darcy is attracted to Elizabeth, however, she makes you feel his pain as he restrains his impulses! And then....the beautiful, and I mean beautiful, balm when that first kiss happens. Truly amazing. One of my all-time favorite JAFF books and authors. There is no doubt about that. I cannot believe I waited so long to try her out! Such talent. Such a way with words. Such a storyteller. l

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Two Great Romances For The Price of One! 11 décembre 2013
Par AgeofIrony - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
My two favorite Jane Austen novels are "Pride and Prejudice" and "Persuasion" ("Emma" is a close third). The two couples at the heart of these stories have, to me, the most wonderfully poignant romances in all of Austen's works: there is a profound connection between Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth that is equally mirrored by the enduring love between Captain Wentworth and Anne. The fact that Ms. Starnes manages to combine these two beloved novels in such a mesmerizing and gripping way is a testament to her love of Austen AND of these four characters. The intensity of Mr. Darcy's feelings really spoke to me, and the description of his elation when he discovered that Elizabeth--at last!--had come to return his love with equal passion and ardor was romantic in the extreme. The added wrinkles of his engagement to Anne Elliot and Captain Wentworth's courtship of Elizabeth were quite entertaining yet also unbelievably stressful to read about before the desired resolutions could be reached. I will be sure to revisit this alternate universe in the future!
