Mr. Darcy's Pledge - Monica Fairview

Fitzwilliam Darcy has always been able to keep his emotions under control. That is, until he falls under the spell of Elizabeth Bennet. Stung to the quick by her rejection, his pride in tatters, and left with no possibility that she will ever return his regard, Darcy determines to put all thoughts of Elizabeth behind him. But not even Town with its boundless opportunities for amusement can keep the image of Elizabeth Bennet from pursuing him everywhere he goes. 

By the time Darcy leaves Town to travel up to Pemberley, he has learned one thing. There is only one way of overcoming Miss Bennet’s bewitching hold over him and Darcy is desperate enough to try it. The solution is to get married. And this time, he is not going to choose a wife by allowing his emotions to lead him by the nose.His choice will be entirely rational… 

In Volume I of this Pride and Prejudice variation, Monica Fairview traces Mr. Darcy’s journey as he struggles to come to terms with the upheaval Elizabeth Bennet has caused in his life…and his heart.

My thoughts:
A good Pride and Prejudice variation makes me doubt that Darcy and Lizzy ever will get together, and this one did just that :)

This is Darcy's book. His is in agony here, he wants her, but she have just said no. So what should he do? Here he tries to find another wife and find out what he really wants, all while pining for her. Awww Darcy, you break my heart!

Darcy tries to see what makes a wife perfect, Georgiana gets some backbone, we meet the Bingleys again, there are wife candidates too. And you need not worry, there is Lizzy! But this is part one so more is to come. We still do not know if they end up together or not ;)

I liked seeing it all from Darcy's perspective. It shows how he really is and how he sees her. I also liked how Georgiana was portrayed and it was nice seeing Lizzy from far away.

An enjoyable variation :) Short, light and fun!

Thank you very much for this review, Blodeuedd. I really enjoyed reading your perspective on Mr. Darcy's Pledge.

These books are hit or miss for me. I read a Gone with the Wind book from Rhett's POV and hated it.

Oh it's nice to have a book from Darcy POV, I only read one but it wasn't really good, this one sounds better, I'm curious.

I don't read many variations as I'm always worried I won't enjoy them in comparison to the final, but this seems promising. Great review!
