Every woman wants to be Elizabeth Bennet Darcy—beautiful, gracious, universally admired, strong, daring, and outspoken—a thoroughly modern woman in crinolines.

And every woman will fall madly in love with Mr. Darcy—tall, dark, and handsome—a nobleman and a heartthrob whose virility is matched only by his utter devotion to his wife.

Their passion is consuming and idyllic—essentially, they can’t keep their hands off each other—through a sweeping tale of adventure and misadventure, human folly and numerous mysteries of parentage.

Hold on to your bonnets! This sexy, epic, hilarious, poignant, and romantic sequel to Pride and Prejudice goes far beyond Jane Austen.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jamie H | 2/2/2014

    " Ridiculous and stupid. The characters were like robots, nothing like the originals. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kyle | 2/2/2014

    " The first third is almost entirely hot Darcy and Elizabeth sex. So...you can decide if that's a pro or a con for you. Parts 2 and 3 move into more standard sweeping Regency-era fare. Overall, sometimes hokey but frequently fun. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 JAK | 1/19/2014

    " Wow! Linda Berdoll took the sacred Elizabeth and Darcy and put them in a bodice-ripper novel. A tad disturbing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Synithia | 1/19/2014

    " I thought this book was entertaining and fun. If you don't enjoy romance novels, then this probably isn't the book for you. Otherwise, let you imagination go wild and enjoy the read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meghan | 1/17/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book. It falls more in the silly romance category, but it is so fun to explore what might have happened. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lesha | 12/18/2013

    " I thought that this book was the perfect sequel Pride and Prejudice. The love between Mr Darcy and Elizabeth seems to grow more and more with each page. I can't wait to read the next one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anthony Sebastian | 12/16/2013

    " Berdoll writes third person omniscient, including omniscience of the sophisticated metacognition of her characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maggie | 12/9/2013

    " This book is in no way in character with Jane Austen's writing....there is some good plot on it's own but there is a lot of unnecessary raunchy content. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather Dakota | 11/14/2013

    " There are some slow parts, but overall good read. Who knew they had so much sex in the 1700s? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ali | 10/17/2013

    " Pride & Prejudice meets Smut City. A total guilty pleasure. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rita | 10/4/2013

    " anything about jane austen = love "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacinda | 4/10/2013

    " this is SUPPOSE to be funny folks! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jean Kocher | 4/9/2013

    " This book is funny, sexy and written with Austen flair. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina | 12/29/2012

    " I enjoyed the effort of the continuation, but not the execution. The story lines put to all the characters are fun and fits them well. I didn't like that it seems to have followed 2005 Pride and Prejudice movie, since it only used those characters that made it into the movie only. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Destinee Sutton | 12/19/2012

    " I didn't get too far before deciding that the author didn't have the talent to really pull this off. If it were shorter, I may have stuck it out and finished, but there are so many better things to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Windy | 12/10/2012

    " Ranked in my top five due to the depth of characters. The extension of some of my favorite characters in a deep married relationship. I am NOT a Jane Austen purist, and I love a good steamy book - this is certainly adult rated. But all within the bounds of a sweet marriage. Mmmmmmm. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amy Adelseck | 9/12/2012

    " What a sad read. I couldn't finish this book. It was like people wanted sex added to the romance of Elizabeth and Darcy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tom Varnum | 5/21/2012

    " Kind of slow at times, but an interesting look at what might have been... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Courtney Vick | 4/13/2012

    " Atrocious writing and total lack of understanding of the characters. Did she read Pride and Prejudice????? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Obisbooks | 4/2/2012

    " A reread, just in the mood for more Elizabeth and Darcy, and second time around was fun, though I skimmed parts a bit more. Lots of drama, but most makes sense. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeanne King | 2/14/2012

    " Read Pride & Prejudice first, and then read Linda Berdoll's "sequels". If you love Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy, then you'll love these books that imagine where they might have gone after their wedding. "

About the Author
Author Linda Berdoll

Linda Berdoll is a self-described “Texas farm wife” whose interest in all things Austen was piqued by the BBC/A&E mini-series of Pride and Prejudice. Four years and much research later, her effort, Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife appeared, to the acclaim of readers and the horror of Jane Austen purists. She and her husband live on a pecan farm in Del Valle, Texas. Although she admits that she eloped in a manner similar to Lydia Bennet’s, to her great fortune it was with Darcy, not Wickham.
