    1. 4.5 stars! What if Darcy Thought He Seduced Elizabeth While Intoxicated?TYPE OF AUSTENESQUE NOVEL: Pride and Prejudice VariationTIME FRAME: Begins with Elizabeth’s and Jane’s last night at NetherfieldMAIN CHARACTERS: Elizabeth Bennet, Mr. Darcy, Charles Bingley, Jane Bennet, Mr. Collins, Caroline Bingley, Mr. and Mrs. BennetSYNOPSIS: After indulging in some glasses of brandy, Darcy doesn’t exactly remember what happened last night, but the evidence he finds in his bedroom leads him to beli [...]

    2. 4.5 starsAh, delayed gratification - for the reader and for others herein.At times this is a COMEDY OF ERRORS and at other times just plain and simply a sweet variation of P&P. We are plopped down in Darcy’s bedroom on the first page (Read the Sample) and (not for young, innocent eyes) read of his hung-over interpretation concerning the condition of his bed sheets.As we again read how each misunderstand and confuse actual events and meanings in conversation, so also Mr. Bennet, and even ou [...]

    3. Lots of presumed and actual pre marital relations make dealing with Mr Bennett quite interesting in this variation. The misunderstandings of so many situations and characters made this story a fun read.

    4. Clueless Darcy. The anticipation of waiting for him to truly understand what happened that night. It was all so worth it. Loved it!

    5. I liked this twist. Darcy thinks he has ruined Lizzy and asks her to marry. This all takes place at Netherfield so those other words never happen. Which is a good thing.Darcy is all noooo! How could I?! But he is such a good man. And he falls in love. Seriously the best Darcy in a long time. I never disliked him. He was always so honorable and sweet. He was never too proud. Lizzy has a good head on her shoulders, and yes if someone had seen them her reputation would be ruined. Just not like he t [...]

    6. 4-stars: Thou doth protest too much, any yet, the evidence indicates…compromised[Purchased box set: Compromising Mr. Darcy] Mild ***SPOILER read on if you wish.Well…what was a man to think? There was blood on the bed, and vague memories of Elizabeth Bennet in his arms. What had he done? The only conclusion…he had compromised the country miss from Longbourn. There was no explicit sexual activity; however, there was mild sensual language that bordered on sexual. OMG!!! What fun, there was th [...]

    7. I received a free copy of Sense of Obligation at an online launch party. I also agreed to give a review on said book, so anything you read here is solely my opinion after reading said book. I thought this book was very refreshing. This book takes a really unusual look at Lizzy and Darcy's route to matrimony.This story is centered around Neitherfield when Jane is sick. Darcy and Lizzy accidentally meet at the library one night. Darcy has been drinking and thinks he is dreaming. Needless to say Li [...]

    8. Rose Fairbanks gives us another wonderful "what if" for our favorite characters, Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet. All of the original characters are here, and very close to themselves as written by Miss Austen. This being a what if, the rest of the story is quite different! I really liked the way Miss Fairbanks rewrote the story! Elizabeth and Darcy meet by chance in the library when Jane is ill. It is late into the evening and Elizabeth is looking for a book to occupy her time. She does [...]

    9. This book is really big on misunderstandings between Darcy and Elizabeth. While most people around them know the truth about their situation about them getting married these two do not. Lizzy thinks is because he took some liberties on a night in the library while he was drunk. Darcy thinks he seduced her while he was drunk that night in the library. Needless to say this makes for a hilarious situation. But while this is going on the night of the Netherfield Ball Bingley seduces Jane and they ha [...]

    10. Elizabeth sees a charming side of Darcy in Netherfields library when he is slightly drunk whereas Darcy doesn't recall what happened with Elizabeth that evening but fears the worst when he finds her bloody handkerchief in his bed. Misunderstands lead to marriage but they are so cute in their courtship and find such happiness that I almost enjoyed the book My lower rating was because of 2 things that will be SPOILERS: 1) there is no way Jane and Bingley would anticipate their wedding vows and 2) [...]

    11. Sensuality content: Sketchy clean. PG 14. Moderate sensuality and innuendo. No sex on screen/page but "behind closed doors". Hero and heroine remain virgins 90 percent of book and even after marriage for some time.Source: My own purchased library.

    12. Oh my god, this book was just awful. I honestly can't find anything nice to say about it. I had hoped, when I found the first chapter ridiculous and eye-rolling worthy, that it would at least prove to be humorous, but I only found it to be stupid. All of the characters acted completely unlike themselves (except Mrs. Bennet, but since she's already often ridiculous, that wasn't a stretch) and Darcy's misconceptions about seducing Elizabeth get stretched well beyond belief the farther the story go [...]

    13. This was a really fun book with several unexpected surprises. I enjoyed seeing how the relationships developed between all the characters as well as seeing the various things that were different from the original story. I enjoyed the ending of the book although I still would have enjoyed an epilogue to see how things were going for the characters in the future but the story did wrap itself up well. This book also contains previews for Mister Darcy's Honeymoon & Letters from the Heart: A Prid [...]

    14. He's already in love with her but she doesn't like him at all. But then, he shows her a side of him few people get to see andHow can things get so mixed up? While Darcy is trying to be gentlemanly, poor Elizabeth is wondering what is going on A very entertaining variation of a great book.

    15. In this Pride and Prejudice variation, Elizabeth is staying at Netherfield looking after Jane. What if Darcy believes he has compromised Elizabeth. What does his sense of honour and obligation mean he must do?

    16. 3.5 stars.Definitely a pageturner and a very original story, but I think the misunderstanding took a bit too long to clear up. I also found Caroline Bingley very unbelievable.
