‘Suddenly Mrs. Darcy’ by Jenetta James

smd jjSTORY: Elizabeth Bennet never imagined her own parents would force her to marry a virtual stranger.

But when Mrs. Bennet accuses Fitzwilliam Darcy of compromising her daughter, that is exactly the outcome.

Trapped in a seemingly loveless marriage and far from home, she grows suspicious of her new husband’s heart and further, suspects he is hiding a great secret. Is there even a chance at love given the happenstance of their hasty marriage?

REVIEW: While Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy are conversing at a ball, Mrs. Bennet makes a scene falsely accusing Mr. Darcy of kissing Elizabeth when he is only talking to her.  Rather than argue the point, Mr. Darcy agrees to marry Elizabeth and a quick wedding is planned.  Immediately after, they travel to his home, Pemberley, which is quite beautiful and large.

As Elizabeth and Darcy have essentially had no courting time which would allow them to get to know one another better, their marriage takes time for both of them to adjust. Elizabeth soon takes over the running of her new home and befriends Darcy’s younger sister, Georgiana, in addition to meeting families in the neighborhood.  When Elizabeth and her maid end up assisting a woman deliver her baby, Darcy tells her that she needs to never venture from home without a footman.

It turns out that Darcy is the type of man who likes to sleep with his wife and does so each night.  Their private life quickly turns into affection and love for them resulting in a pregnancy for Elizabeth.  But when Elizabeth overhears a conversation between Darcy and a confidant of his, she assumes Darcy has a mistress and becomes very distressed accusing him of being unfaithful to her which results in a terrible accident.

Does Darcy have a mistress?  Will Elizabeth and Darcy come to understand and trust one another better?

This book falls into the category of a Pride and Prejudice variation which is a new term to me.

Come read this variation presented in first person by Elizabeth.  I found the book to be spectacular and enjoyed it immensely.  How could anyone ever tire of this wonderful story?
